Design and Engineering

University Design and Engineering consists of six project managers and one CADD operator. The division is responsible for the construction phase of capital projects and renovations. They also work with our campus clients, State and local agencies, architects, engineers and contractors to provide well built facilities for our University community.

Noise, dirt and inconvenience are inevitable around construction and we realize it impacts your daily activities. We endeavor to minimize the inconvenience and disruption that this may cause and we ask for your patience and understanding while we improve the University's facilities. We do ask you to please remain outside the construction limits, marked by caution tape, barricades and fencing. These are placed for your safety and protection.

We are pleased to provide you with information on our major projects of construction, additions, renovations and repairs and their progression. Please see our Projects page for this information.
