University of Botswana Master Plan

YGH, in collaboration with FMA Architects, completed a Master Plan in 2001 that defined campus facility requirements and a framework plan to grow the University from 10,000 to 15,000 FTE students. Subsequent to the 2001 master plan, YGH and FMA provided programming services for over 700,000 sf of new educational facilities, and have provided services for two current campus facility projects. In 2009, the firms developed the 2009-2016 and Beyond Master Plan to define facility requirements and a campus planning framework to achieve the University’s Strategic Plan goal to grow to over 20,000 FTE students. This plan developed siting concepts for over 500,000 sf of new educational facilities and student housing as well as design standards for facilities, open-space, landscape and sustainability.
