Effective project management increases the potential for construction projects to be completed on time, within budget, and without financial complications. We use specialized project management techniques to oversee project planning, design and construction. Small projects may only include a short scope document, a few cost accounts, and a milestone schedule. Large projects may include a detailed scope document, a work breakdown structure, an elaborate and integrated project schedule, numerous cost accounts, detailed progress reports, and so forth.
Each University of Nebraska construction project will include a project management (PM) service fee, based on the estimated total cost of the project and the fee schedule shown the table below. The project management fee is charged monthly over periods of major project milestones. When the total project cost is less than $100,000, the PM fee will be a one-time charge early in the project.
Building permits, design, planning, and study fees are charged as applicable to each project. Permit fees are shown separately from the other fees in the project budget.
- The Building Permit fee is based on Construction Costs and is billed monthly for the duration of construction.
- The Professional Service fee applies to internal design, planning, and studies, and is based on an approved estimate of time and effort required to perform the work. A lump sum monthly fee is billed over the period of those efforts
- Campus Support services continue to be offered without charge to a campus unit. These services include initial cost estimations, facility records maintenance, GIS mapping, design guideline administration, facility condition assessments, general code inquiry responses, faculty support and collaboration, and other general inquiry responses.
