Design & Construction


UMBC is a campus that is continuously evolving and transforming. Every year Facilities Management represents the University in a large number of renovation and new construction work on campus.

FM staff contract both design and construction services, and typically manage these projects as a representative of our university client.


Project Managers are involved from project conception through design, construction and close-out. Project management staff have professional experience in architecture, landscape architecture, engineering and construction. Our professionalism and experience assures quality service, responsive designs and sustainable solutions – delivered on time and on budget.

There are numerous campus renovation, repair, and new construction projects going on throughout the year. Visit the Projects webpage to get a sense of some of the exciting projects in construction or design this year. For a map of current construction projects see the Current Maps and Aerials.  Please keep in mind that improvements can cause temporary disruptions.

Year-round, projects are being initiated to improve the buildings, utilities and outdoor spaces of the campus. FM works closely with contractors to minimize utility, space and access disruptions to campus users.

As part of its commitment to sustainability, UMBC sets a high standard for performance in its major renovations and new buildings. New buildings, like the Patapsco Hall Addition, the Apartments Community Center, and the Performing Arts and Humanities Building have been designed and constructed to meet or exceed the LEED Silver rating as established by the US Green Building Council. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating systems provide a measure of green strategies aimed at preventing pollution, reducing waste and energy use, and improving indoor environmental quality. The resulting high performance buildings will demonstrate improved energy efficiency and resource conservation, leading to a smaller carbon footprint.
