An Overview of Facilities Services
Facilities Services designs, constructs, and maintains campus facilities and infrastructure in a sustainable manner to facilitate the pursuit of higher education and student success.
Facilities Services Departments
The primary goal of the Facilities Services Work Center is being the liaison between the Channel Islands(CI) campus community and Facilities Services Department, providing an optimum learning, teaching, research, and working environment for all students, faculty and staff within the campus community.
Facilities Services maintains the integrity and appearance of all buildings, equipment, and infrastructure at California State University Channel Islands. To assist in this effort, Facilities Services utilizes a web-based program called Web Works (Azzier), which is CI’s resource for submitting work order/key and code requests, event requests, and work order estimate requests. The Facilities Services Work Center is the first point of contact for building maintenance requests, key/code requests, automobile repairs, grounds and custodial maintenance, etc. The campus community submits work order requests and/or contacts the Facilities Services Work Center, where staff will then process and respond to the request and will then distribute the work orders to the appropriate shop/department for action. Many of these requests include campus repairs, landscaping, and cleaning services and many other services that help maintain an exceptional physical environment for students to learn and grow.
Engineering Services oversees energy and efficiency related issues, including sustainability, facilities control, and other services requiring an engineer’s perspective.
Facilities Support is comprised of Landscaping (Grounds) and Custodial. Landscaping and Custodial work together to maintain the campus grounds, provide custodial services, and facilitate set-up and clean-up for internal and external campus events. Our mission is to provide optimum service in favor of maintaining the campus without interfering with the daily activities occurring on campus. Landscaping and Custodial are devoted to ensuring the campus looks its best in order to support student, staff, and community involvement.
The staff consists of grounds workers, laborers, and custodians who are responsible for maintaining the pleasant appearance of the campus, as well as being dedicated to creating a clean and healthy environment for the CSUCI community.
Logistical Services, which is comprised of Mail Services, Shipping and Receiving, Asset Management and Property, and Maintenance Stores, is responsible for the movement of material on and off the campus, including delivery of intercampus, United States Postal Service, inbound and outbound mail. This also includes receiving and shipping all packages that go through common carriers such as UPS and FedEx.
Operations is charged with the physical operation and maintenance to include routine work necessary to keep state-supported facilities, infrastructure, roads, and grounds in good repair, appearance, and operating condition.
The work includes maintaining, operating, and repairing utility systems (electricity, water, gas, sewer, heat, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, and elevators). It also includes sustaining and repairing basic components of campus buildings and grounds (foundations, walls, roofs, stairs, ceilings, flooring systems, doors, windows, wall coverings, hardware, sidewalks, and streets) along with maintaining the campus motor fleet.
The skilled trades staff include plumbers, engineers, electricians, carpenters, painters, locksmiths, and auto mechanics.
