ABOUT US

Facilities Management is responsible for the planning, development, construction, operation, maintenance and stewardship of all the buildings, infrastructure, sites and services within Western’s campus community. We work closely with campus partners to coordinate new construction and renovation projects as well as to complete maintenance and service requests.

Our five main departments include:

  1. Operations & Maintenance
  2. Facilities Engineering
  3. Business Operations
  4. Caretaking Operations
  5. Parking & Visitor Services
