UW-Extension Facilities/Safety Advisory Committee - Capital Building Program

Physical space of the University of Wisconsin-Extension is a resource, similar to personnel and funding, provided by the State of Wisconsin and the Board of Regents to accommodate a clearly defined and justified mission of this institution. As a resource, representing a major investment of tax dollars and supplemental funds, available space must be effectively utilized. The provision and maintenance of necessary physical space requires long-term planning, periodic review and a continual organized space management function.

Interrelated with the function of space management is the determination of physical space needs. Once space needs are determined, they provide a basis for the Biennial Capital Improvement Budget process or the assessment of proposed improvements, including minor renovations, conversions, remodeling or construction of new facilities. The scope of the facility development activity dictates the need for a systematic approach with input from all involved parties.
