Capital Projects Council (CPC)

Content updates in process due to organizational changes

Welcome to the Campus Planning website. All functions previously addressed by the Physical and Capital Planning unit have been incorporated into the Physical Facilities organization, including the oversight of all activities associated with planning, financing and gaining approval for the construction of new facilities and the Repair and Rehabilitation program. In the coming weeks, the Campus Planning website will be reformatted. The structure and appearance of the information will be adjusted to reflect the updated organizational structure of the unit.

Capital Projects Council (CPC)

The Capital Projects Council (CPC), chaired by the President, reviews and approves all Purdue projects for the construction of new facilities and new uses of University land. In addition, the Council reviews facilities additions, renovations and/or capital improvement projects estimated to cost $500,000 or more, and sculptures, monuments, artwork, memorials or any other site features, prior to being presented to or discussed by advisory groups, prospective donors, or any other organization outside Purdue University. The Council generally meets every other month.

Prior to submission, the CPC forms (defined below) and supporting documentation must first be reviewed and approved by the Department Head, Dean/Fiscal Officer and the President's Direct Report, as appropriate. Forms and related documents then should be submitted to the University Architect, according to the CPC Calendar below.

  • Capital Projects Approval Request (CPC-1)
    • The Project Concept Approval request (CPC-1) is used to inform the Capital Projects Council, assess the proposed project concept and request administrative authorization prior to being presented to or discussed by advisory groups, prospective donors or any other organization outside of Purdue University.
