Texas Lutheran University commissioned a comprehensive master plan that included space utilization analysis, programming, projection of cost, a facilities condition index and an illustrative master plan. To assist with this effort, the university hand-picked a team of firms that interviewed separately. Hastings+Chivetta was chosen as the lead firm.
Currently the campus lacks clarity in its vehicular and pedestrian circulation, which complicates way-finding and deters from a sense of campus community. Major improvements include campus approach, entrances, circulation, infrastructure and four major building projects:
The university’s existing Performing Art Center is master planned for a 71,430 SF expansion to co-locate existing dramatic media, music and visual art facilities.
Strategies to improve and expand student housing over time align with the university’s goal to grow its residential population.
Athletics / Recreation
Athletics and recreation are master planned for significant improvement, including a dramatic new football stadium, expanded practice and intramural fields, and new construction.
Student Center / Library
A strategy to connect the Student Center and the library with 42,918 SF of new construction is proposed as an addition. An alternate option is a new Student Center of 74,918 SF.
