Division 10.2 – Construction and Area Management© RWTH Aachen
The Division of Construction and Area Management structurally belongs to the Department of Facility Management within RWTH’s Central University Administration.
Division 10.2 provides a wide range of services related to construction and land management. In the area of construction, the division's staff assumes oversight of all aspects of the construction process, such as planning, developing, coordinating, and implementing new construction projects, renovating existing buildings, remodeling and renovating within existing spaces, implementing construction due to appointment processes, and screening and evaluating new external leases. Division 10.2 has its own workshop that repairs, maintains, and makes adjustments to objects for various construction trades in the construction sector.
Land Use Management
The Land Use Management team manages, plans, and optimizes existing and future land resources This is where strategic land use strategies, land use needs assessments, and future land use planning are developed. Another focus in land use management is the buildings information system, where all property, building, and room data and all planning documents connected to RWTH buildings are documented and managed.
Relocation management is also an essential component of Division 10.2. Our relocation management staff members support individual facilities in their relocation planning and are responsible for organizing, commissioning, and implementing relocation measures.
