About Us

Under the direction of the Vice Chancellor of Finance, the integrated teams of Capital Strategies work together to bring planning, design, construction and development services to the UC Berkeley campus. We are architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers, construction specialists, contract administrators, accountants, and administrative personnel, all of whom work together to serve the campus community.

Capital Planning

Guides the approval process for UC Berkeley capital improvement projects, facilitates project intake and evaluation process, manages campus project approvals, develops the annual Capital Financial Plan, and coordinates project approvals as required by UC Office of the President and the UC Regents. Collaborates campus-wide to prepare and disseminate project information to departments and units, provides information required by State agencies, and responds to project-specific inquiries by the campus, the Chancellor, and the UC Regents and Office of the President.

Capital Projects

Manages the design, construction, retrofitting and restoration of campus buildings and their surroundings. Many skilled professionals work in Capital Projects as architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers, inspectors, construction specialists, and administrative personnel.

Finance

Manages and oversees operations such as controls implementation, mandatory trainings, and metric tracking and reporting, and serves as the control point for various administrative functions such as budgeting and financial reporting, campus audits, identity management review and annual performance evaluations.

Physical and Environmental Planning

Develops projects, plans, and reports, and engages with public agencies, cities and the community, to support the campus’s physical space and transportation needs. They are the office of record for project design review, environmental approvals, and are responsible for campus compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

Real Estate

Assists the campus in meeting its needs for facilities through methods other than the traditional campus capital construction approach. These methods include the construction of new buildings via third-party developers or donor development, purchasing real property and leasing space in commercial buildings.
