  • Scope creep
  • Untimely feedback/ Misinformation
  • Project not aligned with Master Plan
  • Unrealistic timeline
  • Current workload in OCP and ODC Offices
  • Scope requires Engineer be hired for preliminary design services
  • Lack of proper space/New Space Allocation

  • Project timing does not align with academic calendar (access to space)
  • Code Issues
  • Latent Conditions
  • Prohibitive Abatement costs
  • Infrastructure limitations
  • Long lead time items
