Special Projects

Modification or alteration of existing building space is accomplished through the Special Projects program.

A special project is defined as any building alteration or modification work costing less than $25,000, and generally including installation or changes in walls, doors, ceilings, flooring, cabinets, electrical or plumbing systems, or other modifications, or requests for new or expanded grounds landscaping or parking lots. They are particularly related to departmental changes in staffing or programs. Any alteration which costs in excess of $25,000 is considered a Capital Project and should be requested through the Capital Projects program.

Special project requests should be submitted semi-annually (March and September). Emergency special projects may be submitted at any time. Each department should submit its special projects in order of priority to the Building Maintenance Department by March 1 and September 1 of each year. Approved projects will be scheduled for accomplishment by the Building Maintenance Department. Those approved are cost estimated and given a priority category. With each new semi-annual period, previously approved projects not yet accomplished are considered along with new requests.

To request special projects, a GSA-BMD Service Request must be completed and submitted to the Building Maintenance Department, 2054 Fairmont Drive, San Leandro, CA 94578, QIC Code 43501, or faxed to (510-667-3050). Questions regarding approvals, scheduling and general information may be obtained from the Facilities Manager, North or South County.
