Facilities Services / Campus Planning & Projects

            Facilities Services, Campus Planning and Projects (FSCPP) is dedicated to maintaining and improving campus buildings and grounds to make Lehigh University the very best physical environment it can be in order to carry out its mission of excellence in teaching, research, and service to the community. 


TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE AWARD  Kent Hayhurst, lead operator at the Asa Packer Camput Central Steam and Chilled Water Plant was nominated for, and received, the Tradition of Excellence Award.  Kent created a document that was used by HR to train Lehigh staff on the use of the Draftbook, Lehigh's new performancee appraisal system.  Kent, and an explanation of his contribution toward understanding and utilizing the Draftbook, was featured in the March 17 Spotlight which can be found on the Human Resources website.  Kent is shown here with Don Pasda (l), and Steve Benko (r).  Congratulations, Kent! 


Building C Selfie  Erin Liston, Assistant Director of Design and Construction, took a group of staff to view the progress on Mountaintop Campus' Building C.  Scheduled to be finishing in December 2017, the lower floor it is currently filled with students taking part in the Summer Experience.  Large open spaces and triple-story high bays create awesome spaces for learning and researching. and the view of the Lehigh Valley from the top floor was breathtaking!    


All in a day's work  While some of us work inside the buildings, Brent Stringfellow, our University Architect, and Don Pasda, Director of Building and Utility Systems, took a trip to the very top of Packer Chapel to see how the restorative work on the building is coming along.  They offered these pictures so we can all get an up-close look and see what they saw up there.  Pretty impressive!




   TARA SPAGNOLETTI joined the Planning Team on Monday, April 10, 2017.  Tara brings a lot of experience to the job and will be working with Brent Stringfellow, our University Architect. We are glad to have her with us and hope you will give her a nice welcome as you cross paths with her.


                        SAM DAHER is our newest Project Manager.  Sam started at Lehigh on Monday, March 28, 2017 and is looking forward to digging in to his new role and responsibilities.  He will be working with Yasmin Bugaighis and the Design and Construction team.  Please join us in welcoming him to the campus. 


  RETIRED After decades of faithful and dedicated service to the Facilities Services team, Donna Szczepanski retired from Lehigh to enjoy some free time and give greater time to some of her favorite hobbies and activities.  Donna enjoyed a warm send-off in December from many who worked with her through the years.  She promises to return for visits, proclaiming that we are family.  We feel the same way about her.  Happy retirement, Donna!  You will always be remembered.



Speaking of excellence...Congratulations to Mary Jo Brown (left) and Karen Williamson (right) for receiving the 2016 Tradition of Excellence Award for their years of work on the migration of facilities interior space data management from MS Access to a true enterprise solution, and for developing a campus GIS system for utilities and other exterior assets.  They have both worked cheerfully and selflessly on these major projects that impact the entire university, and we are proud of them both.  Pictured with Mary Jo and Karen is Scott Rutzmoser, LTS' GIS expert, who worked with them and ultimately nominated them for the award. 


Further congratulations go out to FSCPP's Project Manager Erin Liston for managing the building project for the new and improved Police Station on East Packer Avenue.  The station, built on the site of the former Windish Hall, is now fully operational and fully staffed and will allow for better responses to both on-campus and off-campus security and safety needs.  Erin joined Lehigh's FSCPP staff in 2014 and has earned respect and admiration for her skills and positive disposition from all who work with her.
