Facilities Management is taking a new approach to project management on UBC’s Okanagan campus. Recovering costs through a nominal fee (based on a project’s cost) will support a more robust project management service.
Over the past year Facilities Management has managed 42 projects worth more than $4 million. This involves moving projects from planning to completion. Anticipating a continued high need for professional project management on the Okanagan campus, Facilities Management is moving to a new, more structured project management service based on cost-recovery of five per cent of a project’s budget.
A search will begin immediately for a full-time project manager.
As of April 1, 2013, the project management fee will apply to new projects managed by Facilities Management with a value of $25,000 or greater (previous commitments made by written quote will be honoured).
