The Facilities Planning team provides strategic planning and management services that support and accommodate academic and research growth while ensuring the best and highest use of campus space.
We work with administrators and faculty to provide planning and functional programming for new projects, submissions for UBC’s Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and renovations and space adjustment projects.
We review space requests and work to ensure the best possible use of campus space, develop consequential move and swing space strategies for groups planning improvements, and develop transparent space use policies that provide incentive to constituents to centralize, down size, share and relinquish unused space.
Space Inventory System
It is our responsibility to maintain, update, and verify the accuracy of UBC Okanagan’s Space Inventory System according to BC Universities Space Standards categories. We ensure all renovations and structural changes are updated within the Infrastructure Development and Archibus/OSIS systems and document departmental space issues and concerns, and attempt to have them resolved.
