"Designing for Stewardship: Aligning Project Decisions with the Total Cost of Ownership"
Author: Guckert, Donald J., P.E., and Jeri Ripley King
Published In: Facilities Manager
Date: November/December 2006

A stewardship approach to the planning, design, and construction of campus facilities is based on a comprehensive perspective of the total financial and operational impacts that a facility will have on the institution.  As project managers accept responsibility for decisions that will affect long-term institutional needs, they are transforming their accountability to capital projects from first cost to total cost. Discusses the need for this transformation to be based on a solid foundation that takes into account competing perspectives, develops defensible standards of design and construction, and provides collaborative compilation of knowledge that can align decisions to facilities stewardship.
