UBC Okanagan Measured Visualizations

elementslab supported UBC Campus and Community Planning through model creation, mapping, measuring and visualizing information for the 2015 UBC Okanagan Campus Plan.

elementslab provided support to UBC Campus and Community Planning (C+CP) during a design charrette and thereafter to assess the evolving plan for existing versus proposed capacity, land cover and walkability.  We created both digital and hard models, which were used in a design charrette conducted in June 2014 and subsequently for several stakeholder engagement events.

Metrics were spatially based and linked to the C+CP defined program, principles and strategies. We mapped and analyzed the percentage of the total residential beds, parking spaces, academic and commercial areas that would be within walking distance of the campus hub and the transit hub. We also compared existing capacity of residential beds, parking spaces, academic and commercial area against the total proposed capacity reflected in the UBC Okanagan Plan. Visualizations of these metrics were prepared for an Open House in January, 2015 and included in the plan.
