University of Vermont

Physical Plant Department

Engineering & Projects

The Physical Plant's in house project management & engineering staff coordinate, oversee and manage large deferred maintenance projects and major utilities upgrades for the campus.

Deferred maintenance is defined by facilities management professionals as "the total amount of expenditures that would be required to perform maintenance projects that are not included in capital renewal and which were deferred as a result of unavailable resources or opportunity for scheduling."

Each year, a small amount of funding is allocated to the Physical Plant in order to complete projects identified as deferred maintenance. The fund is put towards major projects such as roof repairs, utilities upgrades, life safey compliance, brick and building repairs, and painting and window projects.
