The role of Project Management is to lead and direct construction and renovation projects to be performed on McGill property or in McGill facilities and to provide the liaison between the members of the University community and the professionals and contractors operating in the construction industry.
Project Management acts as the delegated representative of McGill University and as owner with respect to the parties with whom McGill conducts business with in the construction industry.
Project Management ensures that projects conform to McGill’s purchasing policy, building codes, and zoning regulations; that the appropriate process is followed for consultant and contractor tendering, selection, and contract award; that McGill’s design and construction standards are respected; and that a quality product is delivered on time, on budget and to the satisfaction of the customer and the rest of the McGill community.
Project Management’s role is supported by McGill Financial Services Policies and Procedures that state under the heading ‘Capital Expenditures, Article 4, Special Equipment’ that “the design, management, and implementation of all renovation and construction projects is handled centrally by Facilities Operations and Development. Under no circumstances should faculties/departments planning renovation work/approach contractors directly.”
Project Management interfaces with the Campus and Space Planning Unit which has the leading role in developing space norms and master plan strategies and in reconciling differences over space assignment and usage that may occur.
