ARC assisted the Facilities Planning & Project Development Department at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) to update draft versions of the SNL’s Long-Range Development Framework (LRDF) and individual sub-area plans. The LRDF provides the overall framework to guide effective, efficient, and sustainable land and infrastructure development for the New Mexico and California Campuses. Similar to a municipal planning document, the LRDF articulates a long-range development vision, framework goals, and a set of integrated development principles for land use, security, transportation, and environmental sustainability.
Companion Sub-Area Plans for five SNL/NM technical areas and SNL/CA provide greater detail about the long-range (20+ years) development vision and capital investment requirements, and opportunities for specific campus areas.
Considered together, the LRDF and the Sub-Area Plans provide an integrated vision for development that enables SNL to shape the design of projects in ways that benefit sponsors, the work force, the company, the nation, and the environment for a positive long-term impact.
