Middlebury College Master Plan

The plan was built on a foundation of sustainability principles, which will guide the College's growth and development for the next 50 years. The plan contains many recommendations that support the College's goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2016, ranging from dramatically increasing renewable energy for heating and cooling to making the Campus more bike-friendly.

The master plan sets forth 10 overall goals:

(1) Promoting sustainability in all college operation and planning.
(2) Enhancing Middlebury’s relationship to the ecological landscape.
(3) Reinforcing the campus’s architectural character and scale.
(4) Promoting an accessible, pedestrian-friendly campus.
(5) Improving the relationship between town and college.
(6) Increasing the variety of campus open spaces.
(7) Optimizing pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow.
(8) Fostering year-round campus.
(9) Consolidating academic units on campus.
(10) Establishing connectivity between campus areas.

Our scope of work included cost estimates for 4,730,000sf of landscape, 970,000sf of buildings and infrastructure. In total, 29 buildings, infrastructure, and landscaping related to 19 spaces were budgeted. In addition to our database of peer institutions, recent bids we used for the school, analysis of estimate, conversations with facilities management, and analysis of consultant’s reports.
