Comprehensive Educational Facility Plan
Romney, West Virginia USA

WVSDB photo 3Per the direction of the West Virginia Board of Education and the West Virginia School building Authority, the West Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind has undertaken the task creating a Comprehensive Educational Facility Plan (CEFP). Dickinson + Partners combined forces with ZMM Architects & Engineers of Charleston, WV on this project.

The purpose of the CEFP is to provide the owner a long range plan that addresses the requirements for new construction and major renovations. Comprehensive planning is a way of identifying the best route to the future through a workable plan for handling priority related and anticipated changes. The CEFP defines ultimate goals for the institution and accounts for the facilities required to achieve these goals. The goals are defined then realized, if necessary, through several phases of construction.

Stakeholders’ team was established consisting of citizen, teachers, staff and business owners. Goal and Objectives were developed and data was compiled concerning enrollment and population growth.

The ultimate goal is to develop a comprehensive facility plan for the campus, based on local input, which can be implemented by the school.
