This includes the essential maintenance of the buildings as well as undertaking minor works. University Maintenance Services also undertake the refurbishment and construction of new University premises.
Maintenance Services News
Asbestos Register - Maintenance Services has made available "on line" reports of the Asbestos Survey of the Precinct, carried out by Redhill Analysts. These reports are accessed by following the link from the Asbestos Management menu, which also contains documentation relating to the management of asbestos within the University Estate.
Legionella - Documentation relating to the Control of Legionella throughout the University is available via the "Legionella Control" menu option.
Online Job Requests - Maintenance Services has developed an online Helpdesk that allows University staff to generate work requests and to check job details over the University Intranet. This function is only available to request Urgent and Routine Jobs; Emergency jobs must still be telephoned to the Helpdesk for immediate response. The system interfaces with Building Services Maintenance Management System "Maintrix" and users once "logged in" are able to make work requests from their PC's and also interrogate "Maintrix", via the Intranet, to gain information such as status of the job and any costs incurred. Prior to the facility being made available to the University populace, six key users were selected to try the system "live" and comment on the web pages and their function. The on line facility is available from Maintenance Services web site together with on line instructions. Key benefits include; the convenience for requestors, the rapidity of job requests being recorded, availability of real time information regarding jobs, reduction in paper generated requests and better utilization of Help Desk operators.
Customer Questionnaire - Maintenance Services has introduced an automated Customer Feedback Questionniare. The questionnaire is automatically sent via e-mail to the job requestor asking the customer to rate the service provided by Maintenance Services for a specific job. The questionnaires are sent at a pre-determined frequency (which can be altered) - currently every 30th job received via the web interface to Maintrix. The responses will be reviewed and analysed by Maintenance staff with the intent of improving our processes, performance, and service to the University.
