The Energy Management Plan presents initiatives to reduce McMaster’s gas, water and electricity consumption and CO2 emissions. It includes past, current and planned projects with information on related water, gas and electricity savings, CO2 emissions reduction, capital cost, annual cost avoidance, consumption trends, available incentives and simple payback for each project.
Facility Services initiated a five-year Campus Accessibility Action Plan in 2012 with the objective of improving accessibility on campus. A second phase of the CAAP was launched in 2018. The report focuses on building entrances, public washrooms, fire alarm systems, voice annunciation, drinking fountains, and braille signage in elevating devices.
Facility Services created the Asset Management Plan in 2012 in response to the huge deferred maintenance backlog. This is a multi-year phased plan which focuses on the replacement of aging critical infrastructure in campus buildings including, but not limited to, building envelope (roof, doors and windows), HVAC systems, and electrical and fire safety systems.
The Capital Plan is a subsidiary document guiding the growth of McMaster’s physical assets such as buildings, land, and infrastructure, on and off the main campus. It represents the University’s existing approved priorities and a number of additional projects (funded, partially funded, or unfunded) for capital investment over the five-year designated planning cycle.
The Strategic Plan considers the progress made by the department and introduces plans for the future. It is comprised of four main themes: People, Customer and Community, Financial, and Internal Business Process. Each theme was carefully crafted to reflect our commitment to providing an environment that promotes learning, research, and community engagement.
The McMaster University Campus Master Plan was originally prepared in 2002 and updated in 2008. The intention of the plan is to provide a clear vision and framework to guide the development of buildings, open spaces, streets, and other elements that define campus character.
The purpose of this document is to introduce the University community to Facility Services’ Project Management Methodology Summary and Framework. Facility Services is responsible for providing design and construction management services across campus.
