In partnership with Montgomery College, a facilities master plan was created for all five campuses, with a set of Guiding Principles for each campus, tailored to its unique setting and specific growth issues.
The recommendations were substantial and far-reaching to accommodate the large amount of projected enrollment growth.
A new parking structure, located as was proposed in the Rockville campus plan, is currently in design and will feature amenities such as vending, a student lounge, and bicycle storage.
The depth and breadth of the projects for Montgomery College are a testament to the superior service skills of the firm... comprised of disciplined architects, completely dedicated to their craft. The College gives them free reign to explore uninhibited each task, yet they are still focused and deliberate, producing works of beauty that communicate to the client on a variety of levels.

Planning for the Future
Each campus plan included program and space needs assessments, and analysis of site issues, views and gateways, buildings, vehicular and pedestrian circulation, parking, utilities, forest conservation, green and open space, and sustainability. Additionally, the plan accommodates phasing, proposed scale, and massing on each of the five locations. The initial (2006-16) master plan proposed a new pedestrian mall and a math-science complex, which has recently been completed as part of ongoing development.
