University of WI-Stout Master Plan

Menomonie, WI back to portfolio

The interactive planning process was geared toward producing a comprehensive campus master plan to assist the university in decision making over the next twenty years. Being the first campus master plan completed for the university, there is a renewed sense of purpose on campus to fulfill the objectives of the vision.

The master plan aligned with the long-term, 6-year increments, planning initiatives of the university. The major concept of the plan was to unite north and main campus through a plan integrated with the city’s long-term plan.   On main campus, the plan created “outdoor” spaces and made physical connections that currently do not exist. The final product is a working document that can change and continue to be formed as the institution moves forward.

Major components of the plan include:
Parking Demand Analysis
Vehicular Traffic Patterns
Buildable Areas
Recreation and Athletic Configurations
Defining the Edge of the Campus
Creation of Quadrangles and Green Space
Development of Campus Design Standards
