Capital Projects and Space Request Process

Capital Projects, New/Additional Space Allocation, Design, and Construction Requests

Capital Projects, New/Additional Space Allocation, Design, and Construction Requests are submitted each year as part of the annual budgeting process.  This approach allows all potential projects to be reviewed together on an annual basis, assuring that financial and staff resources are allocated in close alignment with the university’s vision and strategy.  It also allows the university to prioritize, schedule, and fund capital projects on an annual basis and, in conjunction with the 5-year plans submitted with the space/capital requests, to develop/refine a pro-active 2-5 year plan for the campus. Occasionally, unanticipated capital needs may require consideration outside of this annual cycle.   The off-cycle capital review process allows evaluation of these projects within the same rigorous criteria as the review of projects submitted during the annual budgeting cycle. 

Current and New Requests

Each university unit maintains a list of their Capital Project and Space Requests on the CPSR Form.  If you would like to submit a Capital Project or Space Request for review, please contact the person in your area who maintains the CPSR Form.  If you do not know who maintains the Form for your unit, contact the Facilities Operations Call Center at 313-593-5270 during business hours.

The 2019 Project Review Calendar and the 2020 Project Review Calendar provide deadlines for annual and off-cycle project requests and dates for quarterly reviews and schedule updates.  Please reference the Current Capital Project List (updated after each annual and off-cycle review) for a list of current projects and schedules.  Please reference the Completed Capital Project List for a list of completed projects.

Project Team:

Larger projects are assigned a project manager from the appropriate team at the beginning of the project process.  This person is responsible for the project from initiation to completion, creating a single point of interface for the end user and a single point of responsibility for the project.
