Biographical/Historical Note

The Facilities Department at the Georgia Institute of Technology is itself made up of four departments: Design and Construction, Finance, IT, and Operations and Maintenance. The Design and Construction Department manages design and construction and contracting for renovation and capital projects on the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology. Facilities is headed by the Associate Vice-President for Facilities.

Prior to its current organization, the Design and Construction Department had a variety of names and reporting lines. During the 1950s the department was known as the Planning and Construction Department. Some time during the 1960s the department came under Facilities, which gradually incorporated functions such as plant operations, environmental safety, custodial, maintenance, and utilities as well as construction. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, the information technology department was also added.


Scope and Content Note
