Building Repair & Maintenance
Facilities Management provides necessary maintenance and repair of buildings and facilities at no cost. Additional maintenance services, repair of department purchased equipment, and facility improvements are available through recharge or service agreements.
There are two primary categories of repair and maintenance:
- routine maintenance
- preventative maintenance
Routine maintenance includes repairs and restoration of spaces including walls, floors, ceilings, and doors, in addition to service requests that are generated by campus clients or identified by in-house staff.
Routine maintenance is funded by Facilities Management in state funded space.
Clients in non-state funded space may arrange for any of these services for a single event or as an on going service by submitting a FSR.
Examples of routine maintenance:
- Broken or stuck key
- Cleaning and maintaining of spaces
- Comfort calls (A/C, heat)
- Elevator maintenance
- Leaky faucets
- Lights out
- Pool and fountain maintenance
- Repair of existing outlets
- Restocking restroom supplies
- Pest management
Many buildings systems are checked and tested under the Preventative Maintenance program. The systems are tested or checked on a monthly, quarterly, biannual or yearly cycle. General maintenance and repairs are completed as needed to prevent failures and extend the life of the systems.
Facilities Management is funded to maintain equipment that is part of the building system, was originally purchased with state funds, and is located in state-supported campus space.
Preventive maintenance in non-state funded space and for any department purchased equipment (e.g. air conditioning added to accommodate increased load in a server room) requires a FSR from the client.
Typical systems that require preventative maintenance are:
- Drain maintenance
- Emergency generators
- Exit signs
- Eye wash/deluge showers
- Fire alarms
- Fire extinguishers
- Fire suppression
- Roof drains and gutters
