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.
These include new construction, renovations, alterations or enhancements to buildings over $100,000.
- Financing may come from within a school/department and or central funding, but may come from other sources such as gifts to the university or fund-raising events.
- Funding must be approved by the Central Budget Committee.
These include renovations, alterations or enhancements to buildings LESS THAN $100,000.
- 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.
- Estimate requests can be entered into FAMIS Self-Service.
