One of the primary functions of Facilities Management is the operation of the Heating Plant, located on Second Street, and housing campus boilers and HVAC units. The Maintenance and Operations unit provides and maintains all electrical, plumbing, heating, and cooling services for the campus.
Our unit also performs preventive maintenance mandated by government regulations, insurance requirements, and building codes. Some examples include inspections, testing, lubrications, cleaning, and filter and belt changes. Many of these, such as fire alarm testing, are designed to ensure the safety of building occupants. To prevent emergencies and equipment breakdown, Facilities Management conducts ongoing preventive maintenance on equipment located in supported space. Customers in non-supported space receive preventive maintenance services on a chargeable basis.
