All new construction and renovation projects must be requested through the Construction Management department. All requests must be submitted using the Construction and Renovation request form. The form must be completed by requesting department and approved by the appropriate Vice President. Once the authorized Construction and Renovation request form is received, the Construction Office will schedule the initial project scope meeting to complete preliminary schematic drawings and opinion of construction cost estimate.

The Construction and Renovation request form will then be submitted to the V.P. for Operations with the construction cost estimate for final approval. The V.P. for Operations will evaluate the construction estimate with the source of funding to determine final approval.
