Capital Planning Group

Map showing the transit connection of UB's 3 Campuses

The Capital Planning Group orchestrates the pre-construction planning and programming phases of the Major Capital Programs Process and coordinates all university space management activities.

The Major Capital Programs Process is the planning and implementation of the university’s physical development program which coordinates a wide variety of UB capital development initiatives brought forward by campus sponsors and constituencies. It is designed to assure the highest quality development consistent with the Master Plan Vision and Guiding Principles. A major capital project is defined as a project over $1 million. Units that wish to propose a major capital project should complete a Project Initiation Request.

Additionally, the Capital Planning Group accepts proposals for rehab and renovation projects needed throughout the university. Units that wish to propose a rehab should complete a Small Scale Capital (Rehab) Request.

On the planning, programming, budgeting, design and construction of both major capital projects and rehab projects, the Capital Planning Group works closely with Facilities Planning and Design. Refer to the Project Delivery Process-Small Project and the Major Capital Programs Process for more information.

Any endeavors that require additional space should be addressed first within a department’s current space allocation, then within the school or unit. If space cannot be identified, units may request assistance from the Capital Planning Group using the Space Request Form. A demonstration of effective utilization of space currently assigned to the unit will be required when requesting additional space.

Space Planning Principles and Processes

The Space Management Principles and Processes document provides the campus standards for space utilization to assist in the determination of the adequacy of current space to meet the current needs of the unit.
