Project Management Heading link
The Project Management unit within the Office of Planning, Sustainability and Project Management acts as a resource and single point of contact for UIC’s colleges, departments and administrative units on all capital and non-capital construction and facility renovation projects. For these projects, the unit serves as UIC’s official representative and coordinates with outside professional and contracting services responsible for design and construction. A broad overview of the project delivery process can be reviewed in our Project Delivery Overview. To request a new project, please submit a Request for Estimate from the Facilities Management site.
The Project Management Section comprises a team of professionals organized into five multi-disciplinary teams of project managers who oversee the design, remodeling, and construction of capital projects – those with construction budgets more than $250,000 that typically include new buildings, additions to existing buildings, major renovations, site development, and infrastructure improvements. In addition, they oversee the planning and completion of non-capital remodeling projects – those with construction budgets less than $250K. Team members prepare plans, estimates and specifications, manage construction and act as the liaison for project development and completion.
The Contract Administration Section comprises a team of professionals responsible for managing and overseeing the architectural, engineering, surveying and construction contracts for capital and non-capital projects. Team members develop programs to ensure contractual requirements are clearly developed, documented, executed and completed.
The Engineering and Commissioning Section comprises a team of professionals with backgrounds in architecture and engineering responsible for completing technical and engineering design reviews, ensuring code-compliance and adherence to UIC’s Building Standards and delivering total building commissioning for all capital and non-capital projects. Team members also oversee various energy conservation initiatives and provide building systems technical support.
The Inspections and Assessment Section comprises a team of professionals with diverse backgrounds in construction administration responsible for ensuring quality in every capital and non-capital project, from design through warranty phase, including schedule, cost, and workmanship. Team members provide expertise in construction administration and conduct building assessments to ensure that UIC’s facility recapitalization requirements are understood and well documented.
