Planning a construction project can be a very complicated task. In addition to the facilities on campus being complicated, we must attempt to balance project budget, client's wants and requirements, and the long-term impact of the project on the facility. Facilities Services has many standard materials that are used on projects in order to maintain a consistent look across campus and reduce maintenance costs. The paragraph below outlines the steps for project development.
The first step in a project is for someone to make a request. Approved requests will be evaluated, and a staff member from Facilities Services will meet with the requestor to become familiarized with the requested work. From this, a preliminary scope of work will be established and a budget estimate completed and returned to the requestor. Service Requests for projects can be submitted through FAMIS.
Projects are evaluated annually through the Prioritized Projects list. An explanation of this process is found in Capital Projects. Approved projects will be forwarded to the Facilities Services design group for initiation.
