The approval to construct new facilities and/or remodel existing facilities is the responsibility of the campus chancellor. Depending upon the size of the project, additional approvals may have to be obtained from the central administration, the Board of Trustees, the Commission for Higher Education, the Governor, and/or the General Assembly.
Space alterations are defined as the construction, installation, relocation, removal, or modification of walls, partitions, doors, or windows. All alterations must comply with statewide and local building codes, IU building standards, fire and safety regulations, and ADA requirements.
Persons and/or operational units wishing to recommend a construction project or change in the existing facilities should submit a written proposal to the director of physical plant.
The requestor must submit a proposal to the director of physical plant that include the following:
The director of physical plant will submit a report to the vice chancellor for Administrative Affairs that includes the above-referenced proposal, a floor plan diagram from IU’s online space management program, and a recommendation to approve or deny the request. The report will address the following questions:
If the alteration is approved by the vice chancellor for Administrative Affairs (“VCAA”), physical plant will assemble and send a packet that includes all of the above information and project plans to the University Architect’s Office, (via email pdf) for review, feedback, and approval, with a copy to the VCAA.
The University Architect’s Office will conduct its review and provide feedback, guidance, and/or approval within three weeks. Additional time will be required for projects that are more complicated or extensive. For projects that require UAO involvement, the campus must submit a Request for Service (RFS).
Upon completion of the project, the IU Southeast physical plant will provide appropriate documentation to the Bureau of Facilities and Programming Utilization.
