The politics and process of change: institutional building-planning teams
Design professionals, engaging with campus communities to dream about, design, and construct new spaces for science, are experienced with bringing people together around a common vision, gaining the strong sense of shared understanding, accomplishment, and institutional loyalty that leads to a productive outcome for their work: ". . .it is essential that good decisions are made, as the consequences of poor decisions can be far-reaching in both time and money, as well as on the institutional mission over the long-term." Colleagues from the Science Facilities Planning and Design Group at Einhorn Yaffee Prescott, Cahal Stephens, Charles Kirby, Leila Kamal and Kip Ellis, share their insights.
