What We Do

Facilities, Planning and Capital Programs (FP&CP) Services

FP&CP's Areas of Responsibility

The FP&CP team is responsible for all University of Nebraska facilities planning, programming, design, construction, warranty and closeout activities. The team also provides centralized contract administration and consultation across the University system to support new builds or renovations. Please see below for specific groups and the types of projects they manage.

Major Projects: Capital Construction

If you are looking at a major building project, you’ll be working with Capital Construction. From planning to project managing, engineering to architecture, infrastructure to interior design, this team will guide you through the project process from beginning to end.

Functions include managing building projects (renovation or new construction of $500K and above), planning, and studies.

Small Projects: Minor Construction

If you are looking at a building project or renovation project that costs $500,000 and below, you’ll be working with Small Projects. Renovating a single area or a minor renovation of multiple classrooms, offices, labs or other space are all considered small projects.

Building & Fire Safety

The Building & Fire Safety team provides building-related life safety and code enforcement, ensuring NU receives positive return on all construction investments. They provide a full range of required inspections for the University community and have jurisdiction for State Fire, Building, and Life Safety Codes.

Space Management

Space Management is the central monitoring point of all space on NU’s campuses. This team tracks, assigns, and reports all square footage usage on campus. They prioritize requests for space when it becomes available and coordinate moves associated with renovations/new construction.

Real Estate

If you are a member of the university community looking for space to rent or buy, it begins here. If you’re looking to occupy space within the University's real property holdings, it begins here, too. All the University's real estate properties and functions—including real estate leasing, acquisition, sales, and property tax management—are managed through the Real Estate team.

While facilities planning and capital projects are managed centrally, each campus has their own facilities groups that manage repairs, maintenance, landscaping and grounds, custodial, operations, energy and utilities. If you have needs for those services—or other campus-based services—please visit the relevant campus site below.
