Facility Planning & Delivery

Facility Planning & Delivery consists of four integrated units:

  • Campus Planning leads UW-Madison’s long-range physical planning and landscape architecture activities, including development of the Campus Master Plan. Other stewardship includes managing the Lakeshore Nature Preserve; supporting historic and cultural resources; and addressing facility ADA issues. Campus Planning also liaisons with municipal government agencies and adjacent neighborhoods.
  • Capital Planning is responsible for developing the biennial capital budget. It produces reliable budgets for capital project costs aligned with proposed building programs, work scopes, and timelines. Capital Planning reconciles the limits and guidelines for project funding in the State of Wisconsin, the UW System Administration, and the UW-Madison gift/grant program.
  • Project Delivery represents the university and serves as the project managers for the design and delivery of new facilities, additions, utility improvements, and large-scale remodeling projects, including management of all major university gift/grant-funded facilities projects. This group is also charged with maintaining campus design standards and delivering projects on time and on budget.
  • Space Management and Real Estate oversees the planning and assignment of physical spaces in support of the University’s teaching, research, and outreach mission. This group manages space allocation, analyzes usage data to promote optimal usage of campus spaces, manages real estate and lease transactions, and supports multimedia classroom technology.
