Our approach

It is widely recognized that operations and maintenance represent the greatest exposure in owning and operating a portfolio of educational facilities.

A facilities management program should be based on information, experience, and expertise, taking a comprehensive approach that anticipates maintenance needs in the short and long term.

During site visits, our subject matter experts will tour campus buildings, spaces, and systems. We’ll also solicit input directly from staff, faculty, and other stakeholders in order to construct a total, comprehensive solution.

Our comprehensive facilities operations and maintenance services help keep your learning environment running smoothly.

corrective maintenance

Ask us about our expertise with:


Including tasks whose cycle exceeds one year, such as painting, flood coating of roofs, overlays and seal coating of roads and parking lots, multi-year conformance tests required by outside agencies, and more.


Unscheduled work that requires immediate action to restore services, to remove problems that could interrupt activities, or to protect life and property. 


Responsive and non-emergency corrective work within the current budget cycle or annual program. Activities may range from basic, unplanned maintenance to correct nuisances, to non-emergency tasks involving a moderate to major repair or correction and requiring skilled labor.
