Design and Technical Services

Design and Technical Services provides mechanical, electrical and technical design support to UAlberta. We plan the construction of new university buildings and the renovations of existing ones; we oversee UAlberta’s capital and renewal projects.

We are committed to excellence. We set design and construction standards on campus, and make sure each capital and renewal project meets stakeholder needs, operates efficiently and follows safety codes. Ultimately, we create an environment that is not only pleasing to the eye, but also functional for UAlberta students, faculty, staff and visitors.
