Facilities operations staff members were treated to doughnuts this morning (Thursday, Jan. 24) in the General Services Building. Missouri S&T’s Staff Council hosted the thank-you reception to show appreciation for the work employees do yearlong.
The thank-you reception is a new initiative by Staff Council’s Involvement Committee to show appreciation to departments throughout S&T.
Department spotlight: Facilities operations
If you’ve stepped foot on S&T’s campus, then you’ve been affected by the work this department does. The facilities operations staff maintains sidewalks, steps, parking lots and building heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems, electrical and plumbing systems, building interiors and exteriors and utility systems.
The staff members coordinate and support special events and setups, help move equipment and furniture, and manage the university’s lock system.
The department also provides energy management for utility needs. Through the addition of S&T’s geothermal project in 2014, the university has been cooled and heated through the addition of over 600 geothermal wells.
