Stanford School of Earth Sciences
In the first phase of this ongoing project, Huntsman analyzed the School of Earth Sciences' three existing buildings - Braun Hall, Green Earth Sciences Research Building and Mitchell Earth Sciences Building. The goal of the assessment was to improve the program's overall space utilization while accommodating a five-year projected program growth within the three buildings and increasing visibility of the School on campus.
The study determined that an increase in space utilization and program growth is possible within the existing footprints. Additionally, the team identified ways to modernize the teaching facilities, integrate sustainable practices and upgrade the building infrastructure.
Recommendations for the University include updating Braun Hall to achieve the greatest space charge reduction and relocating core classrooms to the Mitchell Building to provide a new focal point and space to expand the program within the Green Building.
