Capital Planning & Construction
We are dedicated to the continual improvement of our campus. Capital planning and construction is critical to the modernization of the SUNY Plattsburgh campus in alignment with the university’s strategic goals.
Responsible for the planning and implementation of design and construction of capital projects on campus. Our office serves as the direct liaison with outside agencies such as the State University Construction Fund, the Dormitory Authority, NYS Department of Labor and NYS Division of Budget for these capital construction projects. We oversee all the physical work of the capital construction carried out on campus and provides the necessary coordination and notifications with the college students and staff.
Most major projects — over $2 million — are handled by the State University Construction Fund (SUCF). These complex, large-scale projects range from program studies to building rehabs to new buildings. SUCF is responsible for hiring the architects, engineers, and specialty consultants, and for the issuance and award of construction contracts. We are deeply involved in all phases and aspects of these projects. We represent the college’s interests, coordinate design and construction with campus activities, review all contract documents and monitor all construction activities.
In some instances, especially residence hall projects, we oversee all aspects of programming, design and construction. These types of projects require our commitment and offer more flexibility in design, scheduling and construction.
SUNY capital funding is fully funded by the State of New York. The State of New York limits the uses of SUNY allocated capital funding. Limitations by the State of New York focuses on “facilities condition index (fci)” and the core critical maintenance of the projects. Results in mechanical renovations being funding and not programmatic (unless tied to mechanical).
About Capital Funding
In collaboration with the SUNY Construction Fund and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, SUNY Plattsburgh’s facilities department oversees many constructions projects each years to meet the evolving needs of our campus community.
