Capital Improvement Projects

The City of Albany Engineering Division provides services for capital improvement projects to City infrastructure such as :

  • Construction administration
  • Construction inspection
  • Design
  • Planning
  • Project management

This includes 60 City-owned buildings, streets, sidewalks, bridges, and parks. In addition, the Engineering Division is responsible for the issuance of various permits and approvals for construction related activities in the City of Albany.

Engineering is in charge of the capital improvement projects. These projects are typically planned and budgeted years in advance and are typically larger than the in-house Department of General Services (DGS) maintenance work and are therefore contracted out to outside contractors.
