Renovation Requests

The Space Planning & Facilities Management unit oversee projects relating to the renovation of existing UBC Academic Space. Projects can include renovations intended to optimize space utilization, security upgrades, work required to maintain Health & Safety standards and upgrades to infrastructure (electrical, data and mechanical systems).


Any construction or renovation work that takes place in Academic Space requires the involvement of the FoM Space Planning and Facilities Management Unit to ensure compliance with applicable regulatory, Health Authority and University standards. Regulations, procedures and timelines will depend on the location, scope and magnitude of the project.

The following steps are usually included in the project planning process:

  • Definition of requirements & scope of work
  • Confirmation of funding
  • Submission of project request for approval (University / Health Authority)
  • Hiring of designer/architect (if required)
  • Assessments & reviews (as required: environmental, electrical, mechanical, data)
  • Tendering
  • Contract Administration
  • Application for building permits (if required)
  • Project Implementation
