What do we want?
The most important step of any project: knowing what you want, and the steps required to achieve it. Invest the time to create a clear and comprehensive scope of work to properly communicate with contractors and ensure equitable bid comparisons. Having a design or construction background, or working with someone that does, is helpful when creating your project’s scope of work. It can be developed by your staff, an outside contractor/vendor, a Facilities and Construction (FAC) Manager (CM) or a combination of these resources.
The FAC Department is here to help create and/or review the scope of work for your projects, and early FAC involvement may expedite the approval process. If you need any assistance, email the FAC capital projects administrator, Judy Zaffaroni, at CapitalProjects@archchicago.org or call at 312.534.5246.
