at least every five years) to keep it fresh and current, but each change should be evaluated on its merits (i.e., whether it enhances or detracts from the Universitys vision). As the University located in two distinct locations master planning team is required to present characteristics, proposals and guide lines of master pan according to following sites.

This report contains the concept plan prepared to guide future Physical Developments of the Buddhist and Pali University of Sri Lanka. The University is located at two distinct locations at Homagama and Colombo 07. This report includes background details, future development requirements and the proposal of master plan and the guidelines prepared by the Master Plan team of SEC.

1.1 Background
This University had been established on 22nd of April, 1982 in terms of the Buddhist and Pali University of Sri Lanka Act No 74 of 1981 as amended by and Buddhist Pali University of Sri Lanka Act No 37 of 1995 and functions under the Ministry of Higher Education. The university conducts degree programmes such as special degree courses for the internal students as well as post graduate degree and diploma courses for external students. Their study premise for the internal students is located at Pitipana North in Homagama while the centre for the External Examination unit is established at No. 214, Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Colombo 07. Consequent to the fulfillment of a large number of facilities, it has been possible to admit 110 internal students (monks and laymen) annually. However with ever increasing need to have larger student intakes and to facilitate them with modern education infrastructure, university authorities are compelled to have more and more buildings constructed in it. As such university invited the Consultancy Division of SEC to prepare Master Plan for the Physical Development of the University.

1 rood 26 perches area which incorporate Center for Post Graduate degree and external examination unit of Buddhist and Pali University at N0 214, Bauddhaloka Mawatha Colombo 07 14 acres 60 perches which incorporate administrative academic and residential facilities of internal students at Pitipana North, Homagama.

The reason for preparation of Master plan for the University is to guide efficient development of the University for next 5 year period in a way that gives physical form for universitys vision, mission and their academic programme.

2.0 Goals and Objectives

The goal of the master plan is to guide the physical development through integrating the existing and the future development in a functionally efficient manner and preserve the identity of the university. This goal was formulated on following objectives which can be stated as follows:

1.2 Vision and Mission of the University

Vision : To be the foremost and the best Buddhist University in the world. Mission: To endow unto the world, erudite Dhammaduthas (missionaries of the Damma) and scholars, disciplined through mastery of Buddhadhamma, the Pali Language and allied subjects, accomplished in varied skills, capable in promoting and fostering the philosophy of life, refulgent with doctrine of Buddha, in Sri Lanka and abroad.

To guide the wise use of land To steer the locations of new facilities to be occurred in future and their relationship to one another To guide overall structure of open space and buildings that ties the university together and defines its visual character.

1.3 The approach and the Scope of Work

A Master Plan is a policy based document, it does not nor can it regulate land use. A Master Plan is not a zoning document; therefore the recommendations in this plan are only for guidance, not to regulate properties or land use. However it intended to control the general order even though the detail design. To remain viable, the Master Plan should be flexible and dynamic, not static. It must be able to respond to change as well as guide it. It will need to be evaluated and amended periodically (must be reviewed


Part B
1 Administrative academic and residential facilities of internal students at Pitipana North, Homagama 1.1 Analysis of Existing Condition
1.1.1 Location and Physical setting University of Buddhist and Pali is a 14 acres and 60 perches land situated in Pitipana North, Homagama Lush green area. It is 5Km from Outer Circular road and Southern Express Way. Thus university will have easy access from anywhere in the country when the Outer Circular road and southern express ways are completed (Plan No 1 - Page No. 6) University is located two separate locations within 700m distance. Administrative functions are located in Pitipana Thalagala road while Academic and Residential functions are located campus road or Grulugomi Mawatha. It is 20 ft wide Pradeshiya Saba road with low density residences are located one side of the road while other side is belonging to District Agriculture Training centre. (Plan No 2 Page No. 7) 1. 1.2 Academic Facilities Faculties Following figure No 1 elaborates the breakdown of faculties of the University.

1.1.3 Student population University conducts 3 year ordinary degree programme and 4 year special degree programmes for both local and foreign Bhikkus and Layman (gents). According to the vision and the mission of the university, student intakes for general and special degree progammes are gradually increasing. Total student population is now approximately 600 and university expects another 50 number local students 50 number of foreign students for special degree programme. Thus student population may increase up to 1000 by 2015. As such new developments are required in the premises.

MASTER PLAN FOR THE PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE BUDDHIST AND PALI UNIVERSITY SRI LANKA 1.1.8 Infrastructure 1.1.5 Residential facilities 1. Vehicular paths, pedestrian paths and parking By the act university is a Residential university. Thus university should provide residential facilities to all students from 1st year to 4th (final) year. Today hostel facility is provided for 400 local students within the campus residential area. Accommodation for 135 Number of foreign students are provided outside the university on temporary basis. As the university targets to expand its academic programme new hostel facilities for approx. 200 local students and 200 foreign students is required while few accommodation to be given for scholarship exchange students within the university premises. 1.1.6 Existing buildings In 2004, Central Engineering Consultancy Bureau prepared a master plan for the Buddhist and Pali University at Homagama. In it they have identify 3 major zones. (Plan No 3- Page No. 8 Master plan of CECB only for Academic Zone) Zone Administrative Extent 60 perches Present condition Fully constructed. There are no possibilities of expansion without demolishing and rebuilding. (plan 4) Page No. 9) All buildings indicated in the master plan is now completed. About 60 perches are available for infill. ( plan no 3 Pae No. 9 & plan no 5- Page No. 10) 40 perches are remaining for infill without demolishing any existing buildings. University acquire new 2 acres land for future development (Plan No 6 Page No. 11 & Plan No 7 Page No. 12) As previously discussed, Administrative zone is linked to other two zones (residential and academic) by Gurulugomi Mawatha which is a Pradeshiya Saba road required to be further developed. Proposed internal main road and pedestrian paths and open spaces in residential and academic zones by 2004 master plan are completed now. (Plan No 8 - Page No. 14and No 9 - Page No. 16) 2. Water supply There are 2 sumps which has capacity of 60,000 gallons and 15,000 gallons. This amount is adequate for future expansion of the university. But new over head tank is required to pump the water to both residential and academic zone. (Plan No 8 Page No. 14) 3. Electricity Existing generator capacity is 180 KVA. As this is inadequate to cater future development new generator capacity of 1000 KVA may be required. 4. Waste disposal system Academic 05 acres Solid waste disposal system: septic tank and soakage pits. Waste water: Treatment plant treats the waste water and release them to the nearby drain. As this is inadequate to cater future development new treatment plant is required. Garbage: 3 No. of garbage collection points are located within the residential and academic zone. Collection is done by Pradeshiya sabha. New collection points to be included for the future development (Plan No. 8 Page No. 14)


07 acres

Height of the buildings proposed by the master plan prepared in 2004 is maximum G+3 floors. This height is ideal if surroundings of the buildings have adequate open spaces to create calm and quite environment. (Plot coverage to be approx. 50%) 1.1.7 Character of buildings Identified character for the buildings of the university by the master plan done in 2004 is low rise building with traditional Sri Lankan Architectural character. Main features are; 1. Solid base compared to light upper levels. 2. Hip roof 3. Colonnades 4. Simplified versions of traditional details. ( Figure No 4 Page No. 13)

Relating the building entries to streets and other buildings in order to increase the interaction between community and its environment. 4. Master plan has proposed open spaces (shown in plan No 10 Page No. 17) which can be enhanced as memorable places in future. 4. A walkable campus The movement system throughout the campus can make functional and comprehensible by carefully controlling how all buildings are accessed and serviced in relation to the overall movement pattern and pedestrian traffic in particular. Further plan will link the main recreational area of residential Zone (at the center of plan No 10 Page Nol. 17) with quadrangle of academic zone through proposed pedestrian pathway to minimize conflicts between vehicles and pedestrians. Also it will enhance interaction between the all university communities. Strengthening the location of parking area (proposed parking areas are shown in plan No 10 Page No. 17) and parking access will help to reduce the conflicts with pedestrians. 5. University as a part of village Presently university is located isolate from the village. It is seen that this university is more self centered compared to the other universities in the country which creates this isolation. Plan suggests that it would be better that if bank of campus road can be developed to university related activities such as book shops, food shops, and shops with other requirements etc (Plan No 11 Page No. 18) This will increase social interactions between university and the surrounding village. Also it may create new job opportunities to the villages.

In addition to the above following infrastructure requirements are identified by planning team for the future development. 1. 2. 3. 4. Overhead tank 10,000 gallons Generator 1000 KVA Waste water treatment plant Parking facilities

1.2 Planning and Design Principles of Master Plan

Above identified projects to be developed accordingly to the following planning and design principles. 1. Strengthen the identify of campus This is to be done by ensuring that new development contributes to existing environment. Buildings and open spaces to be mutually supportive. Each building is a fragment of the campus as a whole. 2. Preserve and strengthen the exiting greenery This is to be done by identifying areas to be preserved (Plan no 10). Identified areas should be limited to construction and interventions in order to maintain the quality and character of the environment. Undulating condition of the site (shown in plan No 10 Page No. 17) should be utilized effectively and accordingly to the future development. 3. Collection of memorable spaces 1. Future development to be direct toward the creation of human scale open spaces with distinct character. 2. By ensuring that all buildings be viewed as part of their context, not in an isolation.
