Capital Construction Project Management

All construction projects are assigned a Project Manager. This person works with the client to establish the project scope of work, budget, and funding, as well as selection of the design team. After funds are in place, schematic design documents and an initial cost estimate are prepared. Communication between the client, the users of the space, and the design team is important to ensure that project requirements and budgetary constraints are addressed. (Projects are managed to meet the needs of both the University and the individual users).

The next step is the preparation of construction contract documents including plans and specifications. The project manager assures that these documents are carefully reviewed by the client, designers, and Facilities Management Operations personnel. Documents are reviewed for compliance with the CSU Facilities Planning, Design and Construction Standards, and various building codes, and for feasibility given existing building system constraints. The final review is the customer’s last chance to make changes cost-effectively. Changes made after this point can be time-consuming and costly.

The Project Manager is responsible for the overall budget, schedule, quality control, and coordination with CSU personnel. Continued client involvement during construction is essential for translating the design into the project that was envisioned. The project is monitored, and equipment is adjusted throughout the one-year warranty period after construction.

Project management fees are assessed for each project based on the total project budget.
