New Project Delivery Process Launches
With the passage of Wisconsin Act 55 in 2015, the Board of Regents was granted authority to deliver design and construction of 100% gift and grant funded projects. Consulting architects and engineers interested in doing business with the University of Wisconsin-Madison should check this web page for upcoming opportunities, and follow this link for specific project postings:
In the months to come, construction opportunities for 100% gift grant projects will be advertised in a similar way.
A request for design services for the WIMR West Wedge Addition, out first project to be delivered under this authority, is now posted.

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, design, and construction.
Capital Planning & Development (CPD) manages the design and construction of all projects ensuring that University and State criterion are being met. 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.
All requests for capital project estimates that may require state funding should be made to Daniel Okoli. All requests for remodeling, renovation, and construction projects to be under $100,000 should be made to FP&M's Project Administration Center (PAC).
CPD establishes, maintains, and reviews University and statewide guidelines for furnishing and interior finishes. CPD will assist in the budgeting, design, space planning, furniture selection, ergonomic solutions, specifications, and the coordination of moveable equipment installation.
CPD interprets the needs of departments, guides departments through the State's building process, and serves as the campus representative to consultants, the State of Wisconsin University Systems, and State Division of Facilities Development (DFD) representatives.
CPD understands how the use of University facilities changes over time and can help departments anticipate and adapt to the changes in the early stages of the design process.
