An excellent senior opportunity for a dedicated professional
Real Property Division (RPD) is a division within the Ministry of Citizens’ Services. RPD provides everything needed to design, set up and manage a government workplace. This includes management of the Province’s real estate portfolio, office space inventory, furniture procurement, project and construction management, and real estate services for special-purpose facilities (i.e. courthouses, laboratories and correctional facilities). The client base includes core government ministries (mandated) as well as broader public sector clients. The division also oversees the sale of surplus properties on behalf of Government.
Workplace Development Services (WDS) is a branch within the Real Property Division (RPD), which falls under the Ministry of Citizens’ Services. Our objective is to provide support for the BC Government by providing property asset support through the delivery of repairs, upgrades, renovations, and new construction. Our projects are comprised of three project delivery streams:
- Priority Capital;
- Routine Capital: Maintenance and Rehabilitation [M&R], and Upgrade and Renovation [U&R]; and
- Routine Capital: Accommodation [Tenant Improvements].
This competition is to find a Project Lead for the Routine Capital (M&R/U&R) projects. There is another posted competition for the Routine Capital Accommodation projects under Req 57000. Below is a description of the project delivery streams.
Priority Capital projects are typically those that are funded through Treasury Board. These are often the largest of our projects and are comprised of new construction, additions, and major renovations. The project values typically range from $30M to over $200M.
Routine Capital (M&R/U&R):
The BC Government has a large inventory of real estate across the province. The M&R/U&R projects are intended to maintain and upgrade these assets in order to maintain continuous building operations. These projects range in size from minor asset repairs (e.g. roof repair) to entire system replacements and major life cycle extensions. The majority of projects that involve WDS range from $50k to $2M, with some as large as $20M+.
Routine Capital, Accommodation (Tenant Improvements):
While funded from the same routine capital budget as our M&R/U&R projects, the Accommodation (Tenant Improvements) project delivery stream is intended to support the program delivery of several BC Government Ministries through the design and implementation of tenant improvements within leased and owned buildings. WDS is involved in Accommodation projects ranging from $50k onwards, with the majority of projects ranging from $1M to $5M and some as large as $10M+.
WDS relies on an outsourced service provider to assist in the delivery of projects typically between $50k up to $2M. Projects under $50k are delivered directly through our outsourced service provider, without the involvement of WDS. The role of the Project Lead is to provide oversight and continuity between the outsourced service provider and the BC Government. This includes the integration of several RPD branches, such as the Asset Management and Leasing branches, as well as integration of Government IMIT services and our Ministry Client requirements. In unique circumstances, the Project Lead may take on projects with the involvement of the outsourced service provider.
