Facilities strives to provide the highest quality environments that enhance learning, creativity and growth.
Markin Hall features a trademark wall of windows.
The Facilities department is responsible for all building maintenance, operations, infrastructure and major construction projects on campus.
Similar to how City Hall runs the community, facilities maintains the U of L campus.
The Destination Project follows a classic “strong matrix project management” approach where an executive sponsor (Vice President Academic Andrew Hakin) provides resources to a project leader (Facilities Executive Director Chris Eagan) who is responsible for leading the day-to-day aspects of the project. The project leader pulls resources from the existing structure of the university, and supplements that expertise and experience with external consultants to ensure the appropriate people are involved and the best decisions are reached.
Numerous advisory groups, cross-functional teams, and stakeholder groups will be created to provide specialized information, guidance and expertise throughout the Project Development Plan. [PDF]
This direct and straightforward structure provides for excellent communication and connection with stakeholders, very clear lines of authority, responsibility, accountability, and effective executive oversight.
