"Chapter 12: Designing for Stewardship: Aligning Project Decisions with the Total Cost of Ownership"
Author: Guckert, Donald J., P.E., and Jeri Ripley King
Published In: Stewardship & Accountability in Campus Planning, Design & Construction
Date: 2006

A stewardship approach to the planning, design, and construction of campus facilities is based on the comprehensive perspective of the total financial and operational impacts that a facility will have on the institution. Reviews competing perspectives on the planning, design, and construction of buildings; total cost of ownership (includes formula); importance of institutional baseline for standards of design and construction; and collaborating with operating staffs as resources for reviewing plans, developing standards, and commissioning buildings. Concludes that institutions live with the consequences made during the relatively brief design period for years to come; facilities stewardship can guide project managers toward the right choices and decisions to make when designing and constructing facilities.
