Reporting Space Changes

To meet the Office of the President's requirements for maintaining accurate space inventory records, all reassignments of space, changes in room function, or physical alterations which cause a change in the square footage of a room must be reported in the MetaBIM. All space, including any space leased by UC Merced, should be included in the inventory. All departments and schools are responsible for assigning a space management representative who will update their space inventory and review database changes for accuracy.

Updates are required twice per year during the fall and spring survey periods; however, units are encouraged to make changes as they occur. Space data is utilized in a variety of ways on campus, such as capturing seating assignments, room assignments, emergency planning and notifications.

The Office of Planning, Design & Construction Management will perform site visits to review space regularly to help ensure building floorplans are up to date as well as ensuring that coding is consistent across campus.
