Construction Services & Engineering

What We Do
• Provide project management expertise
• Assist with planning your project
• Analyze estimated project costs and schedules ( submit an estimate request)
• Execute the project
• Monitor and control the project
• Close and document the project


The engineering department provides technical support to all Facilities Management departments. Engineering is involved with new facility design and continuous improvement of existing facilities. It manages and maintains the mechanical and electrical infrastructure of the campus, as well as managing the university’s utilities and recommending improvements for conservation and efficiency.

Delivery Methods for In-House Construction

  • Open-End Contract: This method offers quick turn around due to the pre-qualification of contractors and short bidding times. There are over a hundred contractors on the bidding list in areas ranging from Engineering to Painting.
  • Open market: This method is slower but allows for specialty companies to bid on proposed work. Items such as water tower painting and relining might be a candidate for the open market. This method is generally used for work that exceeds $250,000.00 based upon our estimates.
  • In-House Construction Crew: This method tends to be for general rehabilitation of spaces. The Team is comprised of four full-time craftsmen. They work directly for the University, and their first priority is to support new faculty, classroom and laboratory/research space. Quick delivery, quality, and reduced costs are the goals of this crew.
  • Hybridized construction using both in-house crews and contractors: As the name implies, the skills of off-site contractors are combined with those of the internal crew. This extends the capability of the team while saving money and time.
  • Maintenance Support: The Project Managers continue to use the highly skilled and knowledgeable Facilities Management maintenance staff as support in completing your projects.


Our primary mission is to support students, faculty, and staff; hence, projects that involve teaching, research, and learning are our highest priority. This includes assistance in setting up spaces for newly hired professors and researchers. Once priorities are met, projects such as carpet replacement, office space renovation, and general alterations will be scheduled as they can be accommodated. Using this priority system, every effort will be made to respond to this type of project. This may affect delivery methods such as contracting out work instead of doing the project in house.
