The Building Maintenance Department strives to maintain and improve the condition of current (and future) facilities in order to provide the employees and public with sound, properly functioning buildings. In addition to on-going building projects, the department is responsible for plumbing, lighting, HVAC (over 1100 units), electrical, painting, pest control, flooring, locks, gates, roofs, safety, and security, of over 256 buildings (consisting of over 3,175,988 square feet) throughout the county. We are responsible for the maintenance of the pools, UPS and generator units, pest control. The Department is also involved in the design and construction of new building projects and the renovations of current buildings.
During the 2013/2014 Budget year, we have averaged 300 work requests each month. This number does not include the ongoing projects where workers are assigned on a long term basis. The top three categories of requests received are Plumbing-19%, HVAC-16% and Gates/Doors/Locksmith-15%. All of the projects and maintenance of the county are handled by 21 employees.
In recent years, Building Maintenance has become increasingly aware of the importance of good air quality in our facilities. Therefore, we have begun to implement practical procedures to ensure a healthy environment of the buildings. This is being done through the training of employees in the identification and remediation of mold, mildew and other organic matters.
In addition, Building Maintenance has recently acquired the responsibility of overseeing the installation and maintenance of the County's Fire and Intrusion alarm systems.
