Campus Master Plan
Project Type: Master Plan
Client: Bemidji State Univeristy and Northwest Technical College
LHB created a campus master plan for Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College. We conducted stakeholder meetings with university and college staff and faculty, community members and students to help identify the strengths and weaknesses of the campus facilities, and more importantly, their ideas and visions for the future of the institutions.
In addition to the face-to-face meetings with the various stakeholders, LHB developed a survey that was being distributed via the college and university intranet in an effort to reach the widest possible audience and collective input. Initial efforts identified opportunities for a better campus connection with beautiful Lake Bemidji and improved partnerships with the surrounding residential neighborhood and the City of Bemidji, specifically, with the development of Birchmont Park.
