This Senior project research will critically assess the process for campus improvement on the Cal Poly Campus. The purpose of this research is providing a final deliverable that is a usable document for future students with the intention of creating a campus improvement project. The project includes the necessary resources such as campus facility contacts, permitting process explanation, the documentation process for preconstruction, funding opportunities and the expected delays to create a realistic plan. The document is created as a manual for Construction Management undergraduates in hopes of encouraging future students to create a project-based campus-improvement plan that is more efficient and effective. This document contains a breakdown of the physical project steps and planning, aside from the basic criteria for project-based completion. It uses and analyzes the actual documents provided by the graduate on the key players and their roles in the process so students can improve their understanding for their campus project. This project contains problems mitigated for future students to recognize and apply to their own project, so the history and procedure become smoother.
