CAPITAL FACILITIES DEVELOPMENT
Capital Facilities Development is the division responsible for the Planning, Designing and Construction responsibilities of the Facilities Management Department. There are approximately 21 full time employees in this division working in three sections. The division Principal has three managers responsible for the Facilities Master Planning, Program Management and Energy Management sections, in addition to two administrative office assistants.
Facilities Master Planning
This section is comprised of a Planning Manager and a variety of planning positions which provide, among other things, services for space utilization and space planning, master planning, project pre-planning and projecting future needs. This group takes the lead in developing the annual Major Maintenance Program and the County’s Capital Improvement Program. Additionally, Facility System Management is a function of this section. The County’s facility system tracks the use, maintenance and operations responsibilities, and provides as-built drawings on over 10 million square feet of owned and leased facilities.
This section is comprised of a Program Director who oversees project management staff, including our Job Order Contracting group, and a warranty manager. Project scope and budgets are developed by these professionals to assist in development of the County’s annual Major Maintenance and Capital Improvement Programs. These same project managers then manage the design and delivery of approved and budgeted projects.
This section is comprised of an Energy Manager with responsibility for an energy analyst and energy engineer. Their main focus is to maximize the energy efficiency of County-owned facilities so that taxpayer dollars are spent in the most prudent manner. The Energy Management section monitors energy consumption of each building in the County system and assists the Capital Facilities Development and Operations & Maintenance divisions with resources, design assistance, and project management of energy efficiency programs. In addition to standard programs of energy consumption reduction programs, the Energy Management section is involved advocating alternative energy and conservation efforts, such as the waterless urinal, solar energy, and water recycling programs for Maricopa County.
