To agencies requesting Capital projects:

Please take the time to fill out a Capital Project Request Form by downloading the document located in the toolbar on the right of this page, titled Capital Project Request Form.doc, and submit your completed request to [email protected]

Please note that all required fields (indicated by *) must be filled out before the project request will be reviewed by DGS. If the required fields are not filled out completely, the requesting agency will be notified that no action will be taken on the request until the required information is provided.

In submitting a Capital Project Request Form, please note the following:
a. A capital project is one in which the proposed work (design and construction) exceeds $50,000; and
b. Refers to all projects involving new construction, expansion, renovation, or replacement of all or part of an existing City facility or facilities. Costs that may be included for a determination of whether the project cost exceeds $50,000.00, may include the cost of land, engineering, architectural planning, and construction services needed to complete the project.
c. Projects that are for basic repairs or maintenance of a building or space within a building are not typically considered capital projects and cannot be funded as such.

If your project does not require funding that exceeds $50,000.00 or involves only repair or maintenance to an agency’s space, please redirect your request to the Facilities Maintenance Division and fill out a service request by accessing the Archibus system:

Finally, not all Capital Project Requests will be approved. While a project may appear to be a capital project, projects that appear to satisfy (a) and (b) above may, upon further investigation, not meet the criteria for a capital project. Submitting a Capital Project Request Form does not guarantee the project will be undertaken by the Major Projects Division.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND December 18, 2015 – During the month of December you may notice that the lights on the Baltimore City Hall dome are off. When the lights are turned back on, just after the New Year, the dome will boast new light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. The City Hall dome is undergoing a lighting project which involves switching from 1,000 watt metal halide conventional lighting technology to the LED lights that are only 220 watts per fixture. The annual savings from this project is more than $40,000 and will have a payback of less than 2 years.
