Capital Projects and Facilities Services

Capital Projects and Facilities Services (CP&FS) manages 531 buildings totaling over $3.5 million square feet, as well as over 10,000 acres of agricultural and natural lands across New York State and beyond. The CALS Facilities Master Plan was developed in 2012 to guide the development and use of CALS’ physical assets.

The Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station (CUAES) encompasses research farms and greenhouses in Ithaca, Freeville, Aurora, and Riverhead, NY while the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES) in Geneva has branch stations on Lake Erie and in the Hudson Valley.

CP&FS oversees:

  • Building operations and management
  • Renovations of existing facilities/new construction
  • Emergency planning
  • Budget development
  • Space planning and resource projections
  • Land use management
  • CALS furniture inventory
  • Cornell University pesticide program
  • Move services

The Occupational and Environmental Health Program (OEH) addresses the workplace health and safety needs of CALS faculty, staff, and students and promotes environmental stewardship of College farms and greenhouses. The program provides assistance with a variety of safety, health, and environmental issues found in agricultural research, as well as emphasis on the proper management of pesticides and farm safety. CALS greenhouses employ best management practices to minimize risks to employee safety and health.

CP&FS works closely with Facilities Services, Contract Colleges Facilities, and other departments within CALS.  Each building within CALS has a facilities coordinator to manage day-to-day issues.
