Bates College

Master Plan

Lewiston, Maine

Harriman was engaged by Bates College to update the college’s Master Plan. The Campus Facilities Master Plan Update provided a well-grounded, action plan to ensure effective alignment of facility growth and development with the academic mission and campus environment that distinguishes Bates College.

The update provided pragmatic adjustments to reflect emerging campus priorities, as well as add a clear focus to the steps that will be taken over the next few years, through an inclusive planning process that engaged the campus community.

Specifically, the planning effort involved identifying possible areas to expand existing facilities, identifying appropriate locations for new facilities, enhancing campus features and spaces, incorporating utility infrastructure improvements and campus sustainability planning, and determining maintenance needs of existing facilities.
