Welcome to Capital Planning & Development

Capital Planning & Development operates under the umbrella of Facilities Planning & Management. Our department manages the coordination and construction of campus projects over $150,000. Most of our projects fall in the range of $20 million to $200 million.

All projects are constructed in accordance with the Division of Facilities Development (DFD) criteria for quality of design, economics of construction, and efficiency of operation. Project selections are chosen based on the 2005 Campus Master Plan.

Our industry-seasoned staff of architects and engineers serve as representatives for the University in all matters related to the design of new facilities, additions, utility improvements, and large scale remodeling projects. Project Managers participate in the development of building programs, preparation of estimates for capital budget appropriation, and direct the work of outside architectural/engineering firms hired for campus projects.

CPD coordinates with others Facilities Planning & Management (FP&M) departments in taking over completed projects, establishing the move-in date, facilitating training of Physical Plant shops, obtaining maintenance manuals and record drawings, etc.
