Facilities Renovation Review

University of Missouri System

Columbia, Missouri


The University of Missouri System requested an evaluation of capital budget needs for facility renovation for three of the four constituent campuses located in Kansas City, Rolla, and St. Louis. In addition, The University of Missouri–Columbia adopted the study methodology for campus application.  The request originated with the State Legislature and the University’s governing board (Board of Curators) to develop a rational capital planning process and to provide comprehensive and reliable capital plans for the four universities. 

A specific client concern was the lack of coordination in institutional annual capital project requests between physical conditions (deferred maintenance and functional adequacy to meet teaching and research requirements. There also was concern about appropriateness of space planning standards in use to evaluate capital project requests.  The Review provided recommendations for updating space planning standards. 

A team comprised of HHK, HNTB (Kansas City, MO), and VFA (Boston, MA) developed an assessment program for the three University’s major Education & General buildings for condition deficiencies and functionality requirements.  Site visits for inspection of a total of forty-two E&G facilities, extensive interviews, and review of data and documents generated a campus Building Profile with a database, proposed future program use renovation requirements based on program and condition.  

In some, cases the multi-disciplinary consultant team combined projects for renovation/deficiency, others were either only program or condition-driven.  Some buildings subject to a change in use or major reconfiguration required development of a concept design for cost estimating purposes. 

Consolidation of findings resulted in a capital plan of prioritized projects for each institution.  The study resulted in multi-year capital plans that contained a list of renovation projects and cost estimates for presentation to the University’s Board of Curators.
