About Us

Planning, Design & Construction (PD&C) stewards the physical development of the UCR campus in support of its teaching, research, and public service mission.

PD&C’s work is guided by a strong commitment to sustainability and the acknowledgement of its truly diverse, inclusive, and globally-focused community. Through long range planning, new construction, and creative renovation of existing campus buildings, open space, and infrastructure, PDC seeks to preserve and enhance UCR’s distinct sense of place.

The work of Planning, Design & Construction is divided between the responsibilities for the planning and design of the campus, and the management of construction.
