Janet’s position at the University revolves around space planning and the space utilization needs of the institution. Her current focus is on Capital Project Planning and Space Management on three campuses via a newly implemented space management system that captures not only information on how spaces are being occupied but how they are utilized by students, staff, and faculty. The space management system covers use, function of space, technology, FF&E and renovation/finishes information.

Janet’s other functions include working closely with the University’s schools and departments, helping with the planning of large and small projects, furniture, fixtures and equipment, and university standards of interior items. She is happy to share her knowledge and experience with all CREW members.
