What We Do

Physical Plant is organized in a "Zone Maintenance" structure. This is a systematic approach which assigns a team of multi-disciplined trades people to specific buildings and geographic areas of campus. By working in zones, team members are technically trained for building-specific systems, are focused on customers within their zone, and are quicker to respond to emergencies.

Each zone performs preventive and corrective maintenance of all building and mechanical systems. Services includes:

  • Electrical - emergency, routine work and preventive maintenance on electrical panels, switches, occupancy sensors, receptacles, light fixtures, electric heat, electric motors and campus exterior street lighting
  • HVAC & Refrigeration - routine and emergency repairs and preventive maintenance on all equipment and systems including air handling units, air conditioners, unit heaters, coolers, pumps, valves and temperature controls.  
  • Plumbing - installation, repair & maintenance on drinking fountains, showers, drain lines, faucets, garbage disposals, toilets, hot and cold water lines, water valves, submersible pumps, steam machines, water softener units, hot water heaters, dish machines and the like.
  • Carpentry  - building and repair of walls, ceilings, cabinets, stairs, trim, and some furniture, flooring, sheet rock, door hardware, insulation, exterior siding, repair and upkeep of windows, replacing broken windows, glass and glazing, window blinds, porches, shelving, exterior fences, and exterior and interior masonry maintenance and repair.
