Task Status

  • Maintain a campus building assessment platform (completed by VFA in May 2017), and use the system to assist with prioritization. The University can now use this data for planning and reporting.  Overall, the campus is considered in Fair condition. But 20 of the buildings are considered to be in Poor or Disrepair, and 23 are in Fair condition.  The remaining buildings are in Excellent or Good condition.
  • Staff from ITS and the Center for Spatial Studies are prototyping tools for analyzing our utilization of space, and the Facilities Project Review Panel uses a structured project rating system to rank and prioritize projects in conjunction with our capital and campaign planning processes.
  • Create a priority list of residence halls in need of renovation. Renovate dormitories by priority (Grossmont Hall was completed in May 2017).
  • Create prioritized list of major campus projects which will include building renovations, new construction, or removal of poorly performing buildings. Facilities Project Review Panel (FPRP) to complete initial project ranking and then update on a regular basis (ongoing - see process overview below).
