Facilities Work By Departments

Building maintenance is provided by Physical Plant. This facility-specific work should not be performed by building occupants or contracted out without involvement of Physical Plant staff. Equipment owned by the department and not attached to the building is the department’s responsibility to maintain. Physical Plant should be notified of any work on the equipment that may affect the building or its infrastructure.

Painting is also the responsibility of Physical Plant. A priority list of areas in need of painting is maintained and work is scheduled as staffing and resources permit. Requests for repainting areas outside of the normal schedule or changing room colors may be made through a work order, and this work will be chargeable to the department. Physical Plant staff will collaborate with the user and Campus Planning and Design Committee to select paint colors from a standard palette of colors.
