Building Maintenance

CFS Building Maintenance provides for the maintenance and operation of IUPUI buildings which includes the building envelopes, building heating/cooling systems, elevators and other building systems in addition to providing key and locksmith services.

The Maintenance Department is organized into "Zones" for service to campus buildings. The campus is served by a total of six Zones with each Zone consisting of multiple buildings grouped geographically. Each Maintenance Zone consists of a Zone Manager and approximately two craftsmen from each trade (i.e. plumbers, electricians, etc.). The Zone Maintenance program allows for craftsmen to have a focused understanding of their customers and their building systems and reduces service travel time due to the Zone Shop being physically located within the Zone being served.

Energy Management

The University spent over $22 million to heat, cool, and power the campus' 5+ million square feet of conditioned space this past fiscal year. Equating to 1.2 MMBTU of energy consumed!

Energy Management’s focus is to reduce the impact of IUPUI on our environment by using our resources responsibly while serving the variety of campus needs. Eliminating energy waste, identifying & implementing energy conservation initiatives will reduce our impact and ultimately our utility costs.
