Building maintenance

Maintenance services

We provide comprehensive maintenance support to all buildings, services, grounds and infrastructure. The University’s statutory obligations are embedded into our service delivery to ensure that a safe, sustainable estate is maintained for students, staff and visitors.

Through the Estates helpdesk, an in-house technical support team provide a reactive service for all buildings including service breakdowns/failures.

Planned preventative maintenance and replacement of plant and equipment is managed by the Building and Engineering division and delivered by maintenance contractors, with comprehensive records maintained on a management database.

Our service operates an extended working day to maximise the cover available during the University working day. This has the added advantage that certain issues can be dealt with during quiet periods so as to minimise disruption to core University activities.

In delivering our service, Building Management Systems are utilised both strategically and operationally to control environments within all of the main buildings, in addition providing fire and security alarm support and monitoring. These systems are monitored 24/7.
