Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan

2019 – 2021 Strategic Plan Handbook

In the fall of 2018, a cross-section of employees working within strategic direction from UBC,  the portfolio of the Vice-President, Facilities & Operations (VPFO) and the AVP Facilities, Building Operations took the work from Enabling Greatness to build five key strategies to support our mission.

Strategic teams were then formed to developed action items under each strategy. While we will hold some actions until 2021, for the next three years Building Operations will focus its efforts on accomplishing the actions outlined in this handbook, generally:

  • Successfully implementing an Enterprise Maintenance Management System (EMMS).
  • Enhancing Building Operation’s values and culture.
  • Ensuring the health, safety, and well being of our employees.

Building Operations consists of many business units providing a wide variety of services to diverse clients. Our next step will be for each business unit to use this handbook to create detailed plans for each action so we can advance collectively to success.

The 2019-2021 Strategic Plan  handbook is available in multiple formats:

Enabling Greatness: Our story behind UBC Vancouver’s buildings and grounds

One of the outcomes of the review process for our Strategic Plan was participation in the APPA FMEP evaluation process. The book Enabling Greatness: Our Story Behind UBC Vancouver’s Buildings and Grounds served as both a formal APPA FMEP self-evaluation as well as a comprehensive overview of Building Operations, its activities, current performance, and future plans.

In addition to this self-evaluation, an onsite review was conducted by a team of senior facilities executive who produced  a final companion report [PDF]
