Phil Rouble is accountable for campus and facilities planning at Algonquin College. Described as a thought leader in space management, he has presented in numerous forums on his space mining techniques, which have helped Algonquin achieve highly efficient space optimization. In particular, Phil has learned to leverage the game-changing power of Excel pivot tables and data analysis to optimize physical space resources (bricks). Phil is now turning his attention to building capacity in digital space (clicks) and to integrating the planning of “bricks and clicks” space.
Before joining Algonquin, Phil spent 10 years as a full-time professor teaching in a community college. Phil holds degrees in civil engineering (structural) and architecture. His professional interests include learning, teaching, strategic and tactical planning, sustainable development, and adapting digital technologies to enable more effective facilities planning and design.
