April Lanningham, space planner and interior designer, and Lee Keily, relocations and projects coordinator, were profiled in Spaces Magazine, produced by the Office Environment Company. Lanningham and Keily are members of the Capital Planning and Space Management team in Campus Operations which works to allocate and manage the university’s nearly six million square feet of facilities.
The article discusses how the team is involved in everything from the university’s COVID response to planning for a new residence hall for first-year students, all with the aim of providing an environment conducive to learning.
“[Students] don’t often realize that we are working for them, but we are here to support their education and provide value to those paying tuition,” Kelly said. “It could be easy to lose sight of that in our field because we are a step removed, but we support them. We never lose sight of that as a team.”
