New FMD maintenance zones

The operations and maintenance department in the Facilities Management Division will soon complete the transition to a zone maintenance structure that places multi-craft shops at key locations on campus dedicated to the maintenance needs of the buildings and customers within those zones.

The transition started March 12 with the addition of four zones (north, central, south and off-campus).

The zone teams of approximately 15 craftsmen will be responsible for nearly 40 facilities. The teams will provide the first response for all work orders, minor work orders, preventive maintenance and work order coordination for customers.

The Facilities Management Division will continue to have specialty central shops for projects and major mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructure repair.

The O&M Work Control Center will continue to be the first point of contact for customers to generate a work request. There are no anticipated delays to the completion of work orders during this transition. Customers should call the work control center for emergencies or other work required and can use the work request site for nonemergency situations.

For work requests, call the Facilities Management Division weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 706-542-7456. After hours and on weekends, call the UGA Police Department at 706-542-2200.
