AHC Capital Project Planning and Programming
Capital project planning and programming is one vital service provided by our office. The AHC employs four full-time planners who bring a wide range of skills and expertise in planning and developing capital projects. Planners are assigned to work with project managers from the University’s Capital Planning and Project Management office along with user representatives on all stages of the capital planning and project delivery process. The planner acts as a bridge between user needs and capital project delivery procedures here at the University, assuring that capital investments are delivered in effective and efficient ways.
The AHC Office of Facilities also assists in the development of the annual capital budget and the University’s six year capital plan. Projects allowed into each plan are first initiated during the annual academic compact planning process. Where these priorities require capital investment, our office is asked to determine the facility program needed and estimated cost. This assessment, called a capital project predesign, is completed in partnership with a project manager from CPPM.
Current projects are listed in the AHC Capital Project Report. The AHC Historical Project Report lists all completed projects. For more information on capital projects or to see an example of a predesign, see the current Capital Project Predesigns.
Projects follow a consistent project process that takes projects from the earliest planning stages, to the project request (CPR) and on through programming, design, construction, and occupancy.
