It is the primary mission of Design & Construction Management to provide design and construction services to Missouri S&T’s campus community that satisfies the needs and exceeds the expectations of our campus community. We accomplish this by providing excellent facilities for our students, faculty, and staff and by providing guidance and oversight in matters relating to S&T’s physical environment. This unit also ensures all construction activities on campus comply with applicable building codes.

We provide an excellent physical environment for our campus community to allow for an experience that prepares an individual for a fulfilling life defined by the confidence to succeed, a desire to excel, and a love of learning that never stops.

Creativity

We target creative learning environments that break the mold of typical learning settings; these creative environments contribute to the experience of attending Missouri S&T.

Integrity

We are accountable for our actions and strive to uphold the highest ethical standards, to conduct ourselves with trustworthiness and respect for all of humanity, and to instill our campus community these same principles.

Sustainability

We exemplify sustainability both in our designs and in our practices. We continually evaluate current processes to ensure each is sustainable.

Partnerships

We continually foster partnerships in design and in learning by engaging others in many of our business processes and design opportunities. We provide excellent opportunities for experiential learning outside of the classroom.

Inclusion

We believe in openness. We provide opportunities for inclusion in many of our programming & design efforts and by sharing our projects on our department website to our six key customer groups. We welcome other perspectives.
