Master plans for Seneca campuses
Throughout 2011, Seneca has developed master plans for buildings, programs and natural environments at our campuses. This is the first time in the College’s history that master plans will be performed for any of our campuses. Seneca retained the national design firm Dialog to facilitate the research, architectural planning, program review and interviews required for the master plans.
What is a master plan?
A master plan provides a thorough examination of a campus’s assets and possibilities and serves as a broad vision for its future development. Seneca has retained the national design firm Dialog to facilitate the research, architectural planning, program review and interviews required for the master plan.
This is a timely project that has the capacity to render and deliver a vision for Seneca that will enhance how students, employees and visitors experience Newnham Campus.
A successful master plan must include input from those who know the campus best. Your insight will be crucial in determining how to maximize Newnham’s assets to create a sustainable learning, working and research environment that is optimal for everyone.
