facility management

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

A facilities management program should be based on information, experience, and expertise, resulting in a comprehensive approach that anticipates the maintenance needs of your campus 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.

WFF Facility Services offers its clients a single point of contact for facilities operations and maintenance either through direct employment or through management-only contract.

Preventive maintenance & total cost of ownership

Our preventive maintenance programs are carefully designed to manage long-term costs. Through data-driven decisions, we schedule routine maintenance for your equipment, helping to avoid costly, unexpected down time. 

Many asset managers in higher education recognize the benefits of preventive maintenance, and are turning to preventive maintenance software (CMMS) for asset management and renewal. WFF’s experience will maximize this critical tool and streamline processes.

Benefits to your campus:

  • Increased equipment efficiency
  • Prolonged life of campus equipment
  • Decreased equipment downtime
  • Decreased corrective work orders

Corrective maintenance

We know the importance of quick, responsive action and a solid plan for corrective maintenance. Ask us about our expertise with:

Planned maintenance

Includes those maintenance tasks whose cycle exceeds one year. Examples of planned or programmed maintenance are painting, flood coating of roofs, overlays and seal coating of roads and parking lots, multi-year conformance tests required by outside agencies, pigging of constricted utility lines and similar functions.

Emergency maintenance

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

Responsive Maintenance

Responsive and non-emergency corrective work activities that occur in the current budget cycle or annual program. Activities may range from unplanned maintenance of a nuisance nature requiring low levels of skill for correction, to non-emergency tasks involving a moderate to major repair or correction requiring skilled labor.
