When the college was founded in 1965, Facilities was placed administratively under the Business Office, 1965-1978, and was variously titled College Services, College Facilities, Campus Support Services, and Plant Services. It was then placed under Administrative Services, 1978-1994, and was called Facilities Services, Campus Support Services, and Plant Services. In 1994, it was placed under College Operations and was called Campus Services until 1998 when the department name was changed to Facilities Management and Planning.
Facilities Management and Planning is responsible for providing maintenance, utilities, facilities planning, construction and remodeling, custodial, motor pool, and other support services to Lane’s main campus in Eugene as well as the outlying centers.
The Facilities Construction and Administrative Records document the construction of the LCC main campus on 30th Street in Eugene. The collection includes records relating to the design and layout of the college, site development and property acquisition, and the construction of the buildings. The records focus on the initial period of construction of the main campus in 1966-1968, and also document later projects in the 1970s such as the construction of the Performing Arts Building, the Lagoon, and remodeling projects on the main campus in Eugene as well as and the Siuslaw Area Center in Florence.
Records include correspondence with state and county agencies, construction companies and contractors, and architectural firms. Records deal with not only the construction of the buildings, but also the electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and other mechanical systems. The administrative records include campus planning committee minutes and departmental correspondence.
In addition to general office records such as correspondence, reports, meeting minutes, contracts and agreements, the collection also includes blueprints, plans, construction drawings and reports, submittals, and testing reports.
