As a subcontractor to HZ, ARC prepared a programming phase report that describes departmental requirements and a relocation strategy that identifies which functions are to be housed in the new or existing facility.
ARC toured the existing and new facilities, conducted on-site interviews with selected EPISD staff, and presented findings at two meetings with an EPISD steering committee. Based on careful consideration of functional requirements and relationships, ARC prepared a relocation strategy that placed functions with high public interaction in the new facility, and other functions in the existing office tower by floor, based on their size and special needs.
The primary objective was to fill the tower as efficiently as possible, while the secondary objective was to keep the required size of the new building within the limits of the project budget.
