Facility Renovations & Maintenance Requests

It is the responsibility of the Dean's Office to oversee the research space within the Speed School of Engineering (SSoE) and to guarantee that it is being used effectively to maximize the research productivity, educational mission, and overall reputation of the school. The Associate Dean of Research & Facilities (ADRF) will coordinate this activity with input from the Dean, Associate Deans, Chairs of the SSoE Academic Departments, and the Directors of the university-recognized core facilities and research centers/institutes. Requests for new space or reallocation of existing space should be forwarded to the ADRF along with a detailed explanation of the rationale for the request and an analysis of its impact (positive and negative) on others who might be affected by the decision.

Facility Renovations

Renovations of existing space are generally the responsibility of the party assigned to the space. Any classroom and open space renovation will need to be reviewed by the Interior Design and Planning Committee to ensure consistency in design and look.  This committee consists of Kari Donahue, Courtney Gagel and Mike Miller. Exceptions to this policy will be handled on a case by case basis and should be forwarded to the ADRF along with a justification, a detailed explanation of the proposed work, and an estimate of its financial cost. The ADRF should be notified when any renovations or changes are planned, no matter who assumes the financial burden, so that all university policies and safety issues are properly addressed.
