Dakota State University - Residential Master Plan

KWK Architects, with Architecture Incorporated and Wachalski Advisory, worked with Dakota State University on a comprehensive medium- and long-term residential master plan.

The master plan consists of:

  • Assessment of the existing housing portfolio in terms of deferred maintenance, accessibility, and programming amenities. 
  • Evaluating potential sites for short-term new development and long-term campus goals.
  • Phasing of new housing and upgrades on Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior student residence halls.
  • Evaluating the current demand and fiscal performance of the new residence hall.
  • Pre-design, floor plans, and renderings of a potential new facility.

The team prepared and executed an aggressive working plan with a series of two-day meetings, focus groups, and targeted student online surveys to gather the information in a very short timeframe.
