Project Process

Facilities Management provides technical expertise and management services for the design and construction of capital projects. Our Design and Construction  and Operations division guides the physical development of the Evanston and Chicago campuses, with resources that may include central funding, school and or department funding, fundraising, and grants. 

Northwestern University construction projects are divided into two main categories: Capital Projects and Non-Capital Projects.
