The Planner Estimator's Role

Planner Estimators operate in the Work Control Center of the Operations & Services unit. Planner Estimators are your first contact when initiating a maintenance or renovation project.

At your initial meeting with your planner estimator, you can expect the following:

Discussion of project scope: What is involved?

Will furniture need to be moved?
Do you need new utility service (electrical, plumbing or HVAC)?
Do you want to upgrade your laboratory?
Do you want to reconfigure an existing space?
Do you want to refurbish an existing space (e.g., new carpeting and painting)?

Discussion of cost.

Project cost estimate.
Project funding source.
Is this a maintenance project or a billable renovation project?
