Start a project

If you would like to initiate a Capital Project, the process varies according to the final project cost. To help you, we have provided four links for you to select from.

Before you start, here’s a tip on the difference between a Capital Improvement Project and a maintenance or repair project

Capital Improvement Projects are those that add new space or infrastructure, or alter the programmed design or function of existing space, building systems, or infrastructure.  They do not include maintenance, repair, or replacement projects that continue the usability of a facility at its designed level of service. Repair, maintenance, and replacement projects typically only involve Physical Plant.
