The Office of Design and Construction (ODC) provides leadership and expertise to manage capital projects from design through to construction and delivery phases for both new construction and renovations. We are the liaison between the University department sponsoring the project and the rest of the project team, including designers, architects, engineers and builders. We also provide the beautiful interior design and furniture planning you see in our buildings. In addition to leading a project team and monitoring a project’s progress, many in our group contribute specialized sustainability knowledge and have been recognized as LEED accredited professionals (LEED AP).

For more detail on our department, feel free to explore our oganizational chart or find a team member in our staff directory to the right.
