The Asset Replacement & Improvements (AR&I) is responsible for handover (from construction to operations and maintenance) of new and renovated buildings on UBC Vancouver campus. The team undertakes projects for upgrading existing spaces within UBC buildings and ensures they are audited, assessed, renewed and rebuilt to provide long-term value for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. The AR& I unit includes the Transition team and Construction Office.
The transition team is responsible for ensuring that the operations and maintenance teams are able to maintain new assets that are delivered by projects for their lifespan, technical guidelines are adhered to by projects, and that handover requirements are met by projects on behalf of Building Operations. The team is also responsible for ensuring that new assets are entered into Planon, that building data is updated in a timely manner, and that UBC’s Facility Condition Index is calculated and reported out.
The Construction Office is responsible for the successful delivery of small customer-funded projects for the university. The team provides renovation and construction services using in-house trades for projects valued up to $50,000. To submit a Service Request, please visit the Facilities website.
