Kettering University - Master Plan

Academic master planning that serves a whole community

  • Flint, Michigan

Creating new opportunities to showcase and enhance learning.

We worked alongside Kettering University in a highly participatory manner to produce a master plan that clearly identifies opportunities for future utilization of existing facilities, provides for campus expansion, and creates zones where interdisciplinary work can be showcased. The team worked with university leadership to create opportunities to bridge across disciplines, developing models for both interdisciplinary spaces as well as potential new programs that would flourish in these environments.

Because of the age of the buildings (some dating to the 1920s) and radical changes in how engineering and business are taught, our team researched both the condition of the physical campus as well as the utilization of all classrooms and labs. The Stantec and Kettering team visited and benchmarked several corporate and college campuses, providing first-hand knowledge of current thinking not just in college planning, but also corporate environments—the target for Kettering’s students.

In addition to updating the aging buildings, the plan connects the campus with the surrounding community and enhances student life through flexible spaces to encourage collaboration, creativity, and entrepreneurship.
