FMP Process

The FMP was initially triggered by a statewide SUNY and State University Construction Fund (SUCF) initiative to analyze future capital needs. SUNY and the SUCF had conducted Facilities Master Plans at each of the 32 four-year SUNY campuses. The UAlbany FMP was completed in 2012.

The FMP comprehensively evaluates and recommends renovation and upgrade to selected UAlbany buildings and grounds, some projects more near-term than others. Matters of future land use; campus image and identity; access requirements; vehicular and pedestrian circulation; parking and transit services upgrades; open space needs; recreation and athletics; and utilities and other infrastructure needs are among the myriad considerations in the FMP. Enrollment projections and departmental current and future space needs are integral to the FMP analysis as well.

The UAlbany Facilities Office managed the FMP with SUCF. Perkins+Will, a highly respected architectural and planning firm that has developed similar plans for other colleges and universities, was engaged to conduct UAlbany's FMP. Work commenced in the late fall 2010, gathering basic University and facilities information, and proceeded to 2012 to final publication. Over the course of the process, over 100 various meetings, open fora, and interviews have been conducted. The process has been led by Advisory and Steering Committees with consultation from the University Senate.
