Infrastructure Planning

The Office of Infrastructure Planning is responsible for developing strategic physical space services and solutions such as space planning, design and implementation of renovations and new builds for academic and administrative units within the Faculty. Staff provide leadership, expertise and assistance on a broad range of activities including university facilities planning, design development, project management, and occupancy coordination for renovation and new building projects.

Preparing space assessments is a core function of the Office: the process is iterative and provides an ideal opportunity to engage units about their space. The final product is a robust document which informs the Office’s project work. Staff liaises with the University’s Facilities Management team to address long-standing concerns to ensure action plans are in place.

This office collaborates with the many university groups and consultants that have a role in planning and construction, such as Campus and Facilities Planning, Facilities and Services, Project Management, Property Management, Design and Engineering and Environmental Health & Safety and guides the process to ensure coordination between the various groups and achievement of overall project objectives.
