New Project Intake Form Launches 9/23

Facilities Liaisons,

Monday, September 23, the project request form will take you to a new project intake form that is integrated with the U of O Call Log. If you are already a call log user, you can toggle at the top of the screen between “Project Request” and “Service Request.”

The form will remain available via the Design and Construction website under “Initiate a Project.”

This new integration streamlines the project intake process into our Work Management system AiM. Many of the questions are similar to the previous project intake form. The interactive map now allows the requestor to select more than one location through multiple pin drops.

The requestor has the ability to notify the Liaison when the pin is dropped. Click on details next to Liaison count. The Liaison list provides the requestor the opportunity to inform the Liaison of the project request by selecting notify.


For questions regarding this new form please contact Bruce Budzik Small Projects & Cap Imp Mngr, Campus Planning and Facilities Management 541-346-8834

• $25K-$50K 10-18 weeks to start construction
• $50K-$100K 12-20 weeks to start construction
• $100K-$1M 20-30 weeks to start construction

Small Project Timeline for Summer Construction

Happy New Year from Design and Construction!

Though the Winter break has just past, now is the time to start planning for any small remodel projects you might be considering in preparation for Fall Term 2018. The summer months are typically when the majority of this project size are constructed. However, depending on project complexity, it can take several months to program, design, and bid projects ahead of the 2018 summer construction season which is June 19, 2018 through September 21, 2018.

Design and Construction and our Special Projects team would like to assist you in implementing your small capital project goals. A small project has a typical project value of up to $250k of limited complexity.

Small projects may include:

–          Furniture procurement (8-10 week lead times once ordered)

–          Interior Finish Improvements & Updates (flooring, paint, and similar scope)

–          Office or small suite renovations

–          Learning Environment Improvements & Updates

–          And other projects of similar size & scope

So we can offer the best possible services to you, all projects must be submitted based on the following schedule in order to be completed this summer. Late project submission places a burden not only to our staff but to the projects that are already in the project queue; and given the current construction climate in Eugene, contractor availability may be limited as summer draws near.


Project Value Range* Project Submission Deadline
$100,000 – $250,000 February 1, 2018
$0 – $100,000 March 1, 2018

*For complex projects of any dollar threshold, completing the project within Summer 2018

may not be possible. A schedule determination will be made during the submittal and scoping process.

Project requests should be submitted through our online Capital Projects Initiation Form.

If you are not familiar with our project delivery process, feel free to review our on-line Project Toolkit: for helpful information. Also, feel free to review this and other segments of the Design and Construction and CPFM website for additional information and tools for your use.

As you have questions, feel free to  contact  Maggie Kendall (formerly Gordon), Special Projects and Design Manager or me, directly. Maggie’s contact information is:
