About the Facilities Operations Team

This department includes: Carpentry, Painting, Plumbing, Key Shop, HVAC shop, the Steam Plant, and Energy Management.  When a work order comes in, they are the folks who come to fix whatever it is that isn't quite working. Your classrooms and offices are cool in the summer, warm in the winter. If it gets broken, damaged, or just a little worn, they fix it, paint it, rebuild it if they can.  In a phrase, the Facilities Operations team, based in Bristow Hall, keeps the buildings beautiful and functioning properly.

What We Do...

Whether they are in the boiler plant ascertaining that it is running at full steam, turning nails and timber into a platform for an award presentation, painting trim on Blackwell Hall, powerwashing Stevens' facade, fixing a leaky faucet, or any number of things around campus, these ladies and gentlemen give it their all, all the time, to ensure we have a safe, comfortable, and beautiful campus.  See below for the Facilities Operations Mission Statement.
