Brown places high value on its built environment and every change to the physical environment is carefully considered and managed to ensure the quality of the campus remains high. Projects range from new buildings to gut renovations to roof replacements, labs, utility projects, dining, classrooms, and athletic facilities.

The Office of Planning, Design and Construction is responsible for facilitating the initiation, planning process, approvals, consultant selection, design review, and construction delivery of all new construction, renovations, infrastructure/energy upgrades, and major building maintenance initiatives on campus.
