"Projects" are alterations, new construction, or renovations on campus that involve multiple trades and have a cost that exceeds $5,000. All modifications to the physical structure of campus buildings and grounds must be managed by Facilities, per UNT Policy 11.009.
- Renovations to offices, classrooms, laboratories, or public areas inside a building.
- New ground-up construction of buildings or stand-alone structures, such as greenhouses or exterior storage sheds.
- Upgrades to building systems, such as heating/cooling systems.
- Equipment installation that impacts building systems, such as electrical or data communication.
Before Initiating a Project
- Do you need help determining the cost of a prospective project? Take advantage of our Estimating services prior to requesting a project. Visit the Estimating webpage here: https://facilities.unt.edu/services/estimating
- Obtain approval and a funding source from your department's Director or Dean.
- Submit a Space Request Form to the Office of Space Management & Planning.
- Following the instructions on the Project Initiation Worksheet, submit a complete form to Facilities. The form must have signatures from both an Account Holder and Dean/Director.
- Facilities will process your request and send you a confirmation e-mail with your "TMA #." That number becomes your unique project identifier.
- You will be notified when a Project Manager (PM) is assigned to your project request. The PM will schedule a meeting to discuss your needs for the project.
- The PM will develop a detailed scope of work and a formal estimate of cost, which will be a Guaranteed Price. The PM will meet with you to review the scope of work and cost and obtain approval to proceed. If the work impacts a floor plan and space layout, you will be asked to review them for approval.
- The project cost will be sent to you on a Project Budget Worksheet (PBW) for review and signature. Send the signed PBW to the Budget Office for their review and signature.
- Return the complete PBW to Facilities, at which time the PM will begin procuring goods and services and scheduling construction activities to begin.
- The PM will keep you informed of the status of your project during construction.
- At the end of construction, the PM will coordinate any punch list items with you and provide warranty assistance.
