The Facilities Construction and Maintenance Department is dedicated to developing, maintaining, repairing and renewing College facilities in an environmentally-conscious manner. We are committed to providing a nurturing and safe environment for working and learning.
Buffalo State's facilities are an enormous asset. Their quality, location, and environment directly affect our ability to teach, learn, work, and socialize on campus. This department provides services relating to the design and construction of large and minor capital projects, energy management, and maintenance for all of our facilities.
Our staff oversee work performed by outside architecture and engineering consultants and construction contractors. Major renovations and new building projects are often managed jointly with agencies such as the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) or the State University Construction Fund (SUCF). Most of this work is planned years in advance to allow projects to be funded through the state’s budget process.
This department also manages assignment of space on campus in coordination with the Academic Affairs and Student Affairs divisions, and campus administration. Buffalo State has a process for requesting space on campus.
The campus has an ongoing commitment to energy efficiency and decreasing our utility operating costs. The campus has completed an Energy Master Plan and is now implementing energy-efficiency projects recommended by this plan. Many such projects are funded from rebates received for energy efficiency measures implemented on prior major renovation or new building projects.
The campus’ various trade shops perform preventative maintenance and repair in our buildings and on our campus grounds. Their work is assigned through work orders and planned maintenance and repair. Work orders can requested here.
Larger maintenance items that fall under “Minor Critical Maintenance Projects” are funded by the capital budget, designed by campus staff and performed by outside contractors.
