Architectural Research Consultants, Incorporated (ARC) assisted Sandia site strategic planners to develop a Five-Year Facilities and Infrastructure (F&I) Plan. The F&I plan is tool to budget and prioritize immediate and short-term actions from indirect funding sources in light of the bigger picture of proposed investments from direct-funded, Work for Others and other funding sources.

The plan acknowledges the need to continue to pursue line item funding; recapitalize existing infrastructure from internal sources; complete projects underway or in the pipeline; and continue to examine alternative facilities acquisition approaches. It recognizes the need to drive toward reduced overall development footprint and greater space utilization.

ARC’s responsibilities included assisting to:
  • Compile and organize capital needs
  • Prepare a five-year plan and summary document
  • Prepare a strategic space plan
  • Develop a framework for a web-based page/portal incorporating planning information, investments, the space management plan and the updated Five-Year F&I Plan
  • Support and assist in the implementation of the web-based portal
