Facilities Planning Tools
The Office of Facilities Planning maintains this web page to provide materials for consultants. We believe it is in the best interest of CU-Boulder to share this information with other higher education institutions and we ask that you do the following when using this information:
(1) Please credit CU-Boulder in all uses of the spreadsheet. CU-Boulder reserves the copyrights to these spreadsheets, but will allow free use for work on Colorado higher education projects.
(2) The model is provided to you at no cost as a tool to help Colorado higher education institutions. We ask that you not derive financial benefit from its use (i.e., don't charge for the use of this tool.)
(3) Please use the most current version of the model that is here.
4) Please contact the Office of Facilities Planning if you have any problems with its use or if you need instructions.
The CU-Boulder Planning Model is a cost estimating tool that creates a conceptual estimate of total project cost based on the assignable square footage of new construction or the gross square footage of renovated space. The model, based on a similar model for the University of New Hampshire, takes into account the State of Colorado rules related to Capital Construction Funds (CCF), Cash Funds (CF), Reappropriated Funds (RF), and Federal Funds (FF).
