Northwestern University construction projects are divided into two main categories: Capital Projects and Non-Capital Projects.Capital Projects include new construction, renovations, alterations or enhancements to buildings in excess of $100,000.
- Financing may come from within a school/department and or central funding, but is often gathered from other sources such as gifts to the university or fund-raising events.
- Funding must be approved by the Central Budget Committee.
- Financing for Non-Capital Projects generally comes from within a school or department. Funding must be approved prior to the start of the construction process.
