Construction Management

Working in conjunction with the Planning and Design units, Construction Management (CM) is responsible for the development, enhancement, and preservation of the physical spaces of the campus. Throughout the construction phases, projects are managed to ensure that health, safety, regulatory, and code compliance with all applicable local, state and federal regulations regarding construction are met. CM represent the interests of the campus community, working with the CSU office of Capital Planning, Design, and Construction (CPDC), state, and local agencies to coordinate and manage major and minor capital projects, repairs, and maintenance. 
Construction Management services include: 
  • Bidding and contracting 
  • Construction Inspections 
  • Project management through and after the construction phase for:
    • Minor Capital Outlay Projects- Projects that correct deficiencies, provide new or improved facilities, or provide equipment for new or improved facilities and are estimated to cost $709,000 or less (as of 3/12/18) per SUAM Section 9701.01 (revised in CM 18-01).
    • Major Capital Outlay Projects- Capital outlay projects for which the estimated costs exceed the vaule of a minor capital outlay project (as noted above) are considered major projects. In addition, all new facilities, land acquisitions, and projects which increase the existing footprint of a building, regardless of cost, are major capital projects. All such projects must be managed under the requirements of the University’s adopted Capital Outlay Management Plan.
