Contact the Customer Support Center to initiate a project. A project request could include a large capital project, renovating a small office space, or ordering new office furniture. Below is a brief description of each.
Large Capital project request
In conjunction with the University of Pennsylvania’s Facilities and Real Estate Services (FRES), Wharton Operations manages all architectural and construction management activities on the School’s behalf. This includes evaluating and prioritizing all new project requests, assessing proposed needs, developing a functional project scope, space planning, and creating proposed budgets. We work to ensure that projects are successful and non-disruptive to the school.
Minor renovation projects or changes in office space
Wharton Operations works with the University of Pennsylvania’s Facilities and Real Estate Services (FRES) to obtain budget information on any small renovation requests. An example of a small project would be converting a conference room into a private office.
Wharton Operations works with University approved vendors to facilitate quotes for new office furniture requests. Furniture requests could include reconfiguration of existing systems furniture, new office furniture or even small requests for a new office chair or file cabinet. All furniture requests must be submitted to Wharton Operations, to insure that building standards are met and to identify any other items that might be affected like electrical, mechanical or egress issues. Please contact Wharton Operations via email before purchasing any office furniture from online vendors such as Office Depot.
