Physical Plant :: About Us

Physical Plant

The central office is located on Bellaire Drive North between the Stadium and the Tennis Center. Led by the Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities, the Physical Plant’s mission is to provide the physical and educational environment necessary for academic excellence and realization of the mission, vision and core values of the university. The Physical Plant oversees design, construction and renovation of all capital projects as well as necessary operations, maintenance, repair and services for existing pavements, grounds, facilities and infrastructure. This includes 125 major buildings, comprising 5.1 million square feet, on 291 acres of property. This is accomplished by 315 full-time employees, supported at various times of the year by temporary employees and student workers. The Physical Plant oversees a $33 million annual O&M budget, which includes a $10.3 million utility budget. Over $1 billion has been invested in new and renovated facilities since 1996 with over $500 million presently in planning/design/construction.
