Major Capital Projects

MajorCap focuses on external contractor assisted projects of significant construction remodel, improvement or expansion of spaces and infrastructure which can include machinery and equipment installation that is new and not considered a replacement.

MajorCap projects require competing bids and a thorough evaluation and scoring process across multiple criteria with extensive legal contract, terms & conditions.

Major Capital thresholds are determined by the University. Current qualifying budgets run in excess of $20,000.


Minor Construction Projects

Minor Construction requests for small area renovations are routed though office of COO for evaluation of budgeting needs and internal or external resource needs. Minor construction can be managed by either Facilities and Physical Plant and partnering vendors or by Capital Planning & Construction with partnering General Contractors depending on project complexity and FOAPAL.

Please contact office of COO to determine if internal WesternU resources can assist though Facilities and Physical Plant, or if will require external hired contractors through Capital Planning & Construction.
