At Blue Cottage, we take a unique approach to space programming that includes in-depth operational forecasting and operational workflows for every area. We apply our experience in programming and planning for top-tier medical centers to closely examine existing facility use projections. Based on the organizational and operational issues identified by the team, we then prepare a utilization analysis. Our team works with user groups to confirm key program elements and develop a high-level space program, and then collaborates with partners such as architects and IT firms to appropriately size and plan for existing and future facilities. The end result transforms a vision into a working plan for an optimal use of space.
