Facilities Master Planning

RNL worked with the City of Aspen to create a twenty year facilities master plan for all City functions including City Hall Administration, Police, Parks and Recreation,
and Utilities. The scope included detailed space needs programming; existing conditions assessments of all City facilities and sites; development of multiple scenarios to meet long term needs; building and site development concepts that include new building construction, remodel, demolition and expansion options. Analysis included parking and security considerations, best practices
and benchmarking comparisons, and cost estimating both for standalone projects and a capital plan for critical maintenance items. RNL worked collaboratively with a Steering Committee conducting workshops as well as meetings with each Department, City-wide meetings, City-Council presentations, and public outreach sessions.

In addition, RNL facilitated coordination between the City and Pitkin County, for which RNL conducted a separate but parallel facilities master plan for County Administration and Justice Center functions.
