Space Management

Who We Are

The Office of Space Management (OSM) is the cornerstone of the University’s space data inventory and building information.  Administrators and Colleges across our campus footprint utilize our space data for a number of purposes. The following represents a snapshot of the services we provide:

  • Concierge of all Space Requests
  • Space Audits and Planning
  • Preliminary programming and field verification
  • Custom space analytic reports

In addition, OSM has oversight of building document relative to Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information System (GIS) as summarized below:

Our Collection

Our archive holds all as-built drawings and specifications received from completed construction and renovation projects. This amounts to a collection of more than 41,000 drawings and 2,000 specifications and maintenance manuals. 

ePlanroom

The Office of Space Management maintains ePlanroom- an easy to use as-built document identification and retrieval system. ePlanroom is available to on-campus users only. If you would like to request access to the site or if you are an off-campus user and need existing drawings please email moscosobs@vcu.edu

FMinteract

FMinteract provides up to date space data including floor plans, room numbers, departments, and occupancy. It can also provide reports such as the ones listed below:

FMinteract is only available to approved VCU Administrators and staff with a VCU eID. To request access please contact clbrosch@vcu.edu or moscosobs@vcu.edu

GIS

GIS defined by Nation Geographic is "a geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map, such as streets, buildings, and vegetation."

The Office of Space Management GIS produces maps in support of VP of Administration, Real Estate Foundation, Facilities Management and other University departments. We maintain GIS data for the university with information pertaining to building foot prints, land parcels, utilities, and sidewalks etc.  Our goal is to facilitate communication and a collaborative working relationship between Facilities Management and the academic, administrative, and research communities such as Center for Environmental Studies and Office of Sustainability.
