Capital Projects

The Space Planning & Facilities Management unit works with other agencies on construction projects at Health Authority facilities as well as University Campuses to ensure the Faculty of Medicine’s requirements are met. The unit contributes to high level planning and management meetings regarding the projects and reviews, monitors and analyzes Requests for Proposals (RFPs), consultant team documents, construction documents, output specifications, proponent proposal evaluations, and other related documentation to ensure the project conforms to University standards and established regulations.
