Office of Facilities and Capital Planning


The Academic Health Center (AHC) Office of Facilities and Capital Planning was created in 1997 with the unique mission of developing a collaborative service model across multiple facility service and capital planning units that would support the AHC's mission in teaching, research, and clinical services. These collaborations help individual schools and AHC interdisciplinary centers more effectively use their space and facilities while maximizing institutional and collegiate resources and, most importantly, delivering the work of the Academic Health Center. 

We work in close partnership with University of Minnesota departments: Facilities ManagementCapital Planning and Project Management, and Office of Classroom Management.
