Project Initiation

Request Renovation/New Construction

The purpose of this procedure is to establish a comprehensive and consistent process for departments and personnel to propose renovation and/or new construction projects. Examples include, but are not limited to, work involving: plumbing, electrical, mechanical and life safety systems; walls, ceilings and flooring; doors, cabinetry, windows, window coverings and accessibility improvements.

If you have an idea for a project, we’d be happy to discuss it with you. You can begin the process by submitting a request for a project consultation below and someone from our team will reach out to you.

Space Survey

Procedures and Guidelines

Annual Space Survey

Auburn University property is centralized at the Office of the President, but the stewardship of campus space is decentralized to deans and senior administrators.  Campus Planning and Space Management is the responsible office for maintaining inventory and tracking utilization of academic and administrative facilities on Auburn’s main campus as well as off-campus facilities that are owned and leased by the university.  In effort to maintain an accurate and comprehensive space inventory, Campus Planning and Space Management and key campus contacts conduct an annual space survey.

For questions regarding the Annual Space Survey, please contact Hongbiao Wang.

Signs & Wayfinding

Clearly and consistently conveying the identity, location, and wayfinding of and within the Auburn University campus is a fundamental objective of the adopted Auburn University Comprehensive Campus Master Plan. In an effort to provide for this need, as well as to promote a higher quality visitor experience, enhance existing and new traffic patterns, and reduce visual clutter, a unified sign program is an essential element to the future planning goals of Auburn University.

For inquiries regarding signage, please contract Tyler Caldwell.
