Dates of existence
Created in its current form in 2009, UBC Infrastructure Development is a department within UBC Facilities responsible for the planning, development, renewal and renovation of campus facilities, providing stewardship for all institutional facilities projects. It reports to the Associate Vice President of Campus Facilities, inside the Finance and Operations portfolio alongside UBC Energy and Water and Building Operations departments. In addition, the department works with development partners across campus, including Campus and Community Planning, UBC Sustainability, Building Operations and UBC Properties Trust.
Before 2009, the responsibilities of the current units known as Infrastructure Development, Energy and Water, and Building Operations were all managed within the Department of Land and Building Services, in divisions called Campus Planning & Development, Utilities, Plant Operations, and others. Following the restructuring, Campus Planning and Development’s functions were dispersed: sustainability and community planning responsibilities were placed in the renamed Office of Campus and Community Planning, while other aspects related to institutional facilities, renovation, and infrastructure projects became UBC Infrastructure Development.
The current unit’s subdivisions include Project Services, Facilities Planning, Project and Planning Resources, and Capital Planning/Strategic Project Development.
