Size 10.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 8400 items)
Abstract The university's Physical Plant Department, established in the 1930s, for many years was responsible for facilities maintenance and for repair and renovation projects whose cost was below the threshold for capital improvements. In the mid-1990s, Architectural and Engineering Services, a unit of the Facilities Planning and Design Office, assumed responsibility for these projects. In 1998, following an administrative reorganization, Architectural and Engineering Services became a separate department within Facilities Services. The Architectural and Engineering Services Department later was renamed Design and Construction Services and became part of Facilities Operations, Planning and Design. Records, 1972-1997, consist chiefly of project specifications and project files relating to the maintenance, repair, and renovation of university facilities. Files include correspondence, plans, sketches, cost estimates, and other materials. The earlier files appear to have been created by the Physical Plant Department. Later files, beginning in the mid-1990s, appear to have been created by Architectural and Engineering Services.

The university's Physical Plant Department, established in the 1930s, for many years was responsible for facilities maintenance and for repair and renovation projects whose cost was below the threshold for capital improvements. In the mid-1990s, Architectural and Engineering Services, a unit of the Facilities Planning and Design Office, assumed responsibility for these projects. In 1998, following an administrative reorganization, Architectural and Engineering Services became a separate department within Facilities Services. The Architectural and Engineering Services Department later was renamed Design and Construction Services and became part of Facilities Operations, Planning and Design.

Specifications and cost estimates for projects were created by the Physical Plant Department and later by the Architectural and Engineering Services Department. University personnel performed much of the work on these projects; however, contractors also carried out project work.
