UNH Durham Campus
UNH Facilities are stewards of the University campus, providing a safe, accessible and attractive physical environment while efficiently using resources and planning for the future needs of the University.
Campus Planning is responsible for campus master planning, capital, facilities and space planning, transportation planning, campus GIS, dig safe, and design oversight of all University construction. The challenge of our task is to deliver the vision of the University leaders, respond to the needs of individual campus users, while preserving and
enhancing the character and integrity of the campus.
Facilities Project Management
The Facilities Project Management (FPM) team provides professional services for design, administration and construction for all University renovation, repair, and new construction projects across the campus.
FPM ensures the success of projects from the scoping and programming stages all the way through design, construction, commissioning, closeout and move-in. Each project follows a carefully designed planning and execution process focused on a successful outcome that meets project goals, and ensures compliance with state and federal laws, and University Construction Standards and policies.
Energy & Utilities
Energy and Utilities are responsible for all utility systems connecting campus facilities. UNH has a utility infrastructure system that includes chilled water, electric, steam and hot water, as well as various civil utilities, such as domestic water, sanitary sewer, and stormwater totaling 63 miles of underground utilities. We produce both heat and power from a central plant where 85% of total campus energy is generated on-site. The central plant’s primary fuel is the largest landfill gas to energy plant (named EcoLine) located at a University in the country where it supplants natural gas to power the facility. In addition to energy supply, the Energy and Utilities department is responsible for the management of campus energy including a revolving energy efficiency fund that invests 100% of quantified energy savings into new efficiency initiatives. With the oldest active drinking water plant in the state, UNH is currently constructing a new $20M plant that will provide water to both UNH and Durham residents.
Facilities Services provides services to the UNH campus for grounds and events, housekeeping, the lockshop, zone maintenance, and the control center. Facility Services is committed to provide high quality, cost effective, responsive, valued, integrated facility services to the students, faculty and staff in support of the mission of the University.
