Written requests for renovations should be made through Facilities Engineering & Development (FED). Where funding will be from departmental sources, requests should be made utilizing a providing the chargeable departmental account number. 

A site visit and discussion with the requesting department is held and an estimate is prepared if required. If approval is given by the requesting department, preliminary drawings and layouts are prepared by FED and reviewed with clients. Final drawings are then completed and tenders are called. If the tender amount is approved, the project is awarded and construction is scheduled in coordination with the requesting department. Should the project not proceed, the requesting department will be required to pay for the design and tendering costs.

As a guideline, complicated projects with a value in the order of $100,000 may require 3-4 months’ lead time from the time of the approval to proceed, while less complicated projects may require 1-2 months’ lead time from approval to proceed. An accurate schedule will be provided for all projects prior to their proceeding.

Throughout a construction project, a change in the original scope of work may be required by the client and/or FED. If changes are required during the project, additional funding may be required.
