Construction & Renovation/Capital Project Management

The Capital Project Management (CPM) group performs all construction and renovation work on campus by overseeing the work of contractors, consultants and PSU crews.

This work is performed on new or existing buildings related to structural, mechanical, electrical and architectural systems.

The CPM group is also responsible for the planning, execution and management of all capital construction projects and improvements on campus. Basic cartography and demographic study also fall within this realm. This group updates campus and University District maps and accommodates growth needs due to increasing student enrollment and utilization of campus facilities.

CPM coordinates and develops the University capital budget requests for legislative reviews. Archives is housed and managed under the group which includes historical records dating back to the 1800’s.

Current Large Construction Projects:

Science Building 2 Infrastructure Upgrade & Modernization

$45.3 Million

To meet PSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ mission of performing world class research and educating the next generation of scientists, the project upgraded the seismic integrity and the heating, cooling, plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems of this 40 year old building.   The departments of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science had fume hoods replaced, their teaching and research laboratories modernized and added a hazardous materials addition to the building.  LEED Gold will be the result of many energy saving and sustainable features designed into the building.


Campus Steam & Chilled Water Loop Phase II

$17.5 million

Campus Loop Phase II creates a continuous steam and chilled water loop throughout the Park Blocks with the addition of tunnels connecting Millar Library to Science Building 2 and Shattuck Hall.  Steam and chilled water are used to heat and cool our large campus buildings.  This “loop” will result in considerable operational, maintenance and energy savings by consolidating boilers and chillers in central plants and enables the University’s most energy efficient equipment to be shared with multiple buildings.


College Station

$90 million

The building will be 16 stories, composed of student housing, academic, and retail space. It is located at the interim south terminus for the MAX Yellow and Green lines, and scheduled to be open for Fall Term 2012.


Life Sciences Collaborative Project

$140 million

A collaborative effort between OHSU, OSU and PSU creating a state of the art facility for life sciences, research and teaching, plus a future home for PSU Chemistry and Biology Departments and OSU School of Pharmacy.
