Design & Construction Management
The Department of Design and Construction Management, located in the Montebello Complex, D-Wing - Room 312, is charged with the responsibility of designing and managing all construction projects for the University that take place on and off campus. This includes building renovations, new building construction, site upgrades and any other capital improvements.
The department is instrumental in selecting and hiring all design teams of architects, engineers and other consultants. These duties are carried through the entire process of producing construction documents. The active participation of the users of the affected facilities (faculty, staff, students and others) is a vital component to this department's coordination activities and is essential for ensuring constructive interactions between the users and the design teams. Likewise, the Design and Construction Management Department works closely with other University departments to design, select and order furniture, art work and interior design elements.
Once the designs are complete, the Department of Design and Construction Management, with the cooperation of the Procurement Department, bids and awards all construction projects. A Project Manager, who will inspect the construction and stay with the project from start to finish, is assigned to each project.
The Department of Design and Construction Management keeps the University community up-to-date on a project's progress. With assistance from the Department of Communication and Public Relations, information is posted about each project, including construction schedules, pedestrian or vehicular detours and other items of general interest. In addition, a newsletter, The Cornerstone, is distributed three times during the academic year that will contain updates on current and future University projects.
Information concerning past, current or future projects may be obtained by contacting the office directly. View an update on past, present, and future Capital Projects.
