As San Francisco State University launches an ambitious master plan, it is clear that project delivery methods will require a greater reliance on alternative funding mechanisms. To deliver new or renovated facilities to the campus community in a timely manner, the university will have to dramatically shift our approach to project delivery. The creation of the University Enterprises division was the first step toward creating a structure to support these types of initiatives.
University Enterprises’ real estate development efforts are aimed at developing and implementing capital projects through public/private partnerships (P3) and other delivery and financing mechanisms in support of its mission. These efforts include conceiving of, developing, and managing the business and contractual aspects of the university’s real estate development programs in alignment with physical planning, environmental, and financial goals.
