As a part of Planning, Design & Construction, we have the opportunity to work with our colleagues on a daily basis to improve the university. A few ways that we interact with them are below:
Our space allocation guidelines are being used to assist with new capital projects and renovations on campus to help decide size, quantity and types of rooms that will be put into these new and updated spaces.
We work daily with our campus planners on gathering space use data and information, as well as providing input on our long term campus planning and capital development efforts.
The GIS, CAD & Document Management team are a group we work closely with to update layouts and building information, review and create room numbering schematics, and to develop tools to bring our space information to more groups and individuals on campus.
Space information is crucial for what most of Facilities Managment does on a daily basis. Many different groups track different information from phone jacks to locks based on room numbers and buildings, which is vital for us to keep up to date to support these uses.
