Are you asking the right questions on your space request form?

While new space request forms are a primary way to surface unit and department space needs, many Facilities offices report being inundated with requests that aren’t always fully formed. These space request forms help capture baseline space requirements, but do not necessarily force the requester to explore the actual need driving the request.

Adding a few simple questions to your space request form can push units to think more critically about their space needs and provide the space committee with vital information to comprehensively evaluate requests. What’s more, a good space request form can limit the number of requests you receive—and ensure that the requests you do get have been thought through.
