Operational Procedures & Service Guide

Under the direction of the University Engineer, PPES provides architecture and engineering services to the SIU campus community. A staff of architects, electrical, mechanical, civil engineers combined with planning, interior design and drafting allows PPES to handle planning, development and design for construction, renovation and maintenance projects.

When a need for construction or renovation occurs, a Request for Physical Plant Services form is required and should be submitted to the Facilities Operations Center.

Departments with a need to develop scopes of work for future construction, interior design and furniture or equipment are encouraged to contact PPES as a resource.
