PMCS Furniture Reuse Program Launches

Project Management and Construction Services (PMCS) staff recently launched the PMCS Furniture Reuse Program which contributes to the campus circular economy by connecting furniture removal with furniture needs. In cooperation with Surplus Properties, the goal of the PMCS Furniture Reuse Program is to improve the furniture lifecycle on campus. When it comes to sustainability, repurposing furniture is one of the easiest ways to make a difference. It’s less expensive than purchasing new (even with the cost of disassembly, moving, and reassembly) so that you can spend your funding on mission-centered items like research equipment and space renovations. By reusing furniture from your fellow UT units, you can save money, time, and the environment! If you have furniture to give or furniture you need, reach out to PMCS for assistance. For project-related furniture, contact your Project Manager. All other inquiries can be directed to your assigned Planner (ask your building manager or facilities director for a contact). 

As a reminder, Surplus items may be viewed and selected for university reuse by visiting P45 at PRC on Fridays via the regular surplus process. For any questions about inventory or rules and regulations contact Surplus.
