campus construction

The Facilities Department is responsible for the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and renovation of all university facilities administered directly by the university on the Blacksburg campus and on all university properties throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The department is committed to creating and sustaining a state-of-the-art campus, with the facilities and open spaces that provide the university community the ideal environment in which to Invent the Future.

To that end, the department strives to ensure that all projects are constructed, operated, and maintained in compliance with the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (VUSBC) and applicable environmental laws and regulations.

All projects must obtain the necessary plan approvals, permits, inspections, and record documents, as required.
