Operations and Maintenance

Operations and Maintenance (OM) is proud to act as the steward for developing, maintaining and renewing the buildings that house the teaching, research and administrative activities of the University of Alberta. The department is comprised of Buildings and Grounds Services; Operations; Trades; and Energy Management and Sustainable Operations. 

With the specialized knowledge and skills of engineers, technologists, project managers and coordinators, estimators, and trades people, Operations and Maintenance focuses on building projects and renewal programs at each of the university’s five campuses. Examples of these efforts are the renovation of the University’s historic South Lab building, now officially named Triffo Hall, as well as the maintenance upgrade of the Chemistry West wing.

If you need immediate assistance with a maintenance issue or have concerns about alarms, building access, heating and cooling, please contact a Facility Services Manager or the Maintenance Desk at 780.492.4833.
