Facilities Planning, Design & Construction

Welcome to Facilities Planning, Design an Construction (FPDC), A service group of the Administration and Finance Department. FPDC combines Industry best practices, energy efficiency, and University Sustainability efforts to serve our diverse campus community. Our campus is continuing to expand with new projects in queue and recently completed capital projects.

Facilities Planning, Design and Construction coordinates campus facility planning through the development and management of the Space and Facilities Database (SFDB). This database, updated annually, is a key component in determining the need for capital improvement projects as well as equitable space distribution campus-wide. The decisions that formed the Campus Physical Master Plan and the various capital improvement projects are based, in part, on information obtained from the SFDB.

Space and Facilities Database:
The Space and Facilities Database is the official California State University record for facility and space information. It provides an inventory of the type of activity taking place in each room, the number of individuals (based on CSU space standards) who should be accommodated in the space, and the square footage. This information is used to generate central reports from the CSU that substantiate the need for physical improvements. These improvements are consistent with the physical Master Plan.

Any proposed changes to space that will change the use, size, or capacity must be coordinated with FPD&C. Authorization to change a space must be received prior to the start of any projects that will impact the activity the space was built to accommodate.

The Campus Master Plan:
In accordance with the State University Administrative Manual (SUAM), the Board of Trustees requires that each campus develop a physical Master Plan that reflects both existing and anticipated facilities needed to accommodate a specified enrollment at an estimated target date. This document, along with the SFDB, becomes the backbone for subsequent Capital Improvement Programs that are submitted toward funding of state, or planning of non-state projects. For more information see the Campus Master Plan.
