CAMPUS MASTER PLAN SOUTH SHORE NATURAL SCIENCE CENTER
HMA worked with the SSNSC's parent organization, The South Shore YMCA, to create a campus master plan that charts a strategy for land use for this icon property and its outlying land holdings. A strategy for land use revealed a strategy for real estate consolidation that will allow the SSYMCA to continue innovative development of the facility, whose goal is to bring natural education to the South Shore .
With an emphasis on sustainability and low impact, the plan proposes a rehabilitation of the central building , new trail heads, consolidated farm education program, and new exhibition areas. The first phase of the Master Plan will include a new Center for Conservation Studies, which will create rental and event leasing opportunity on this pristine and iconic Campus.
