Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Division of Capital Asset Management

Boston, Massachusetts


Eva Klein & Associates, Ltd. prepared a 10-Year capital plan for the highly diverse system of 6 colleges, 3 specialized colleges, and 15 community colleges for the Massachusetts Department of Capital Asset Management, acting on behalf of the Board of Higher Education, retained HHK as a subcontractor for the project.  Services included development of space planning standards as a component of a quantitative analysis of institutional capacity for current and projected 10-year enrollments.  

Study objectives were to:

  • Identify all capital needs of the colleges;
  • Synthesize these into a coherent and balanced capital Program for each college;
  • Develop a System wide Strategic Capital Program;
  • Develop a comprehensive statement of needs – not just a list of bond bill projects;
  • Sustain the highest priority on asset modernization and preservation; and 
  • Give adequate consideration to infrastructure and general campus features (including Health/Safety/ADA)

The adopted space planning standards were developed as a result of a comprehensive review of national standards. A Space Capacity Analysis determining campus space needs, the standards were a component of a prioritized capital projects plan for the institutions. 

The final report prioritized projects by institution and systemwide into two phases with 514 projects totaling an estimated cost of $1.17 billion.  Organization into prioritized project groupings facilitated the client’s use of the data for ongoing funding initiatives.
