New way to request space or facility project needs

The way you request facility or space needs has changed!

The Facilities and Space Planning & Management teams have created a new process to help the community.

 

There are no longer separate forms for requesting construction projects or requesting changes to assigned space data – the Project Initiation Worksheet (aka PIW) and the Space Request Form are now combined.

 

Effective October 1, all requests for changes to space – be it requesting new space, modifying currently assigned spaces through construction, or requesting changes to assigned spaces and classifications – will be submitted via the new Project & Space Request Form.

 

Space Planning & Management will review each submission and work closely with Facilities and UNT community members to address our campus needs. Please note, the current web form is Drupal-based, which has style limitations but will be transferred to new technology soon.

 

This new process will streamline activities and eliminate the need for separate forms to engage the Facilities or Space Planning & Management teams. It will also facilitate a holistic approach to managing investments in our campus facilities that align with the institution’s goals and mission.

 

Space or project requests may be submitted at any time; however, there will also be new deadlines for review of “large projects” (over $100,000 in cost). For FY22, the submission deadline is Oct. 1 to Nov. 1, 2021. In subsequent years, we will have submission deadlines twice a year. Large projects will be reviewed during these specific times to ensure they align with the strategic direction of the university and are fiscally responsible investments. There is space within the form to describe your project in case you have an emergency that needs to be addressed quickly.

 

Please keep in mind that basic repairs that are done by the Facilities service team still follow the same process. Your team can fill out a service request online or call 940-565-2700.
