Office of Capital Projects

The Office of Capital Projects (OCP) 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).

The Office of Capital Projects also provides property development and project management services for properties located ‘off-campus.’ We often partner with outside firms to develop, manage and provide real estate assets to support the needs of our students, faculty, and staff. We entertain traditional project team structures as well as those uniquely available on a project-by-project basis. Projects range from administrative buildings to residential to multi-user projects. In April 2021, the real estate consulting firm PICUS joined the Office of Capital Projects in the reorganized Real Estate group.
