What we do
Effective learning and working spaces are essential to UFV’s pursuit of educational excellence. In keeping with UFV’s strategic plan, the project office works closely with all departments to create positive spaces that will engage learners, transform lives, and build community.
We consult, collaborate, plan, and execute, aiming to be top performers who turn UFV stakeholders' visions into functional reality. As we work, we hold to our Project Office values of innovation, accountability, sustainability, integrity, and mutual support.

Can we renovate our space?
The Project Office team is happy to help you answer that question. Every year, our Campus Planning and Project Office teams work with UFV departments to tackle campus projects that will help us engage learners, transform lives, and build community. The first step to starting a project of any size is to review the project planning process.
What is a capital project?
A capital project is one that represents an investment in the long-term expansion or improvement of our campus spaces and properties. Capital projects include new buildings, building expansions, major renovations, and infrastructure upgrades. Capital projects are funded by UFV's restricted reserves, annual budget contributions, and government funding. They require a careful approval and review process to ensure the wise use of public resources and careful risk management. Learn more about how capital projects are approved.
