Summer 2022 Renovation Project Deadlines

The planning schedule for Summer 2022 renovation projects managed by the FP&M Physical Plant (costing $185,000 or less) is now available.

Now is the time to start planning for next summer. The deadline for renovation project submissions is December 1, 2021—less than two months away. 

For 2022, we will once again select projects based on a collective effort between FP&M and representatives from the School of Medicine and Public Health, College of Letters & Science, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Engineering, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Graduate Research and Education, as well as an additional campus representative from another school, college, or division (selected based on the overall pool of requests).

This team will collaboratively prioritize and select projects for construction in Summer 2022 that have the greatest impact to the University’s mission and that will also benefit from reduced campus occupancy. 

To request a project, submit a Customer Request.

Planning Milestones

December 1, 2021 Renovation project request due to Physical Plant
December 1, 2021 to January 11, 2022 Physical Plant staff develop the project scope and a rough order of magnitude cost estimate for each project request. Repeatable and specific data points are identified to help with project prioritization.
January 11, 2022 First prioritization discussion.
January 14, 2022 Second prioritization discussion.
January 20, 2022 Third prioritization discussion (if needed).
Mid-February 2022 Confirmed project list published.
Early May 2022 Design/construction drawings are offered for S/C/D approval before commencement in order to finalize construction plans. 
Late May 2022 Construction begins after commencement (and before when possible).

This planning schedule allows FP&M to collaborate effectively with schools, colleges, and divisions across campus to prioritize projects. It also allows Physical Plant staff to effectively plan, allocate resources, and order materials for summer renovation work.

Schools, colleges, and divisions are encouraged to begin submitting their projects immediately to facilitate efficient scoping and estimating, especially since the planning, evaluation, and prioritization time period includes the winter holidays.
