"Building The Foundation For Our Future"
What We Are All About
The Office of Facilities Planning was created as a separate campus entity in December
1996 with the charge to:
- Encourage increased campus involvement in the capital planning process, particularly
through the works of the Facilities Planning Committee
- Progress design/construction activities and monitor regulatory compliance to ensure
functional and safe facilities and grounds
- Work with campus authorities in their efforts to attain appropriate funding support
of critical construction needs
The Process for Facilities Planning at The State University of New York at Fredonia
Development of Overall Program - Facilities Planning works with the campus community to identify the needs of the
campus. Projects are identified, researched, prioritized, and budgeted prior to being
included in the Five-Year Capital Plan. The plan is updated annually and is developed
based on academic and department needs, as well as, campus infrastructure needs. Proposals
and approvals to alter campus facilities may also be submitted by following the established
Guidelines for Facility Alterations.
Architect/Engineer Selection - Architects/Engineers are selected following guidelines established by the State
of New York. Selections are coordinated through the Facilities Planning Office, New
York State Dormitory Authority, and/or the State University Construction Fund. Initial
budgets are identified through these entities as well with final budgets and scope
of work being completed during the design process.
Construction - The selection of a contractor is made according to guidelines established by New
York State through the formal bidding process. Coordination is accomplished through
the Facilities Planning Office, New York State Dormitory Authority, and/or the State
University Construction Fund with recommendations provided by the design consultant.
Construction and total project costs will remain within budget limitations established
during the design phase of the project.
