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.

The Associate Vice-President Team works closely with the Facilities Management departments to deliver the best possible service to the University community.

Our five main departments include:

  1. Facilities Operations
  2. Facilities Development & Engineering
  3. Business Operations
  4. Building Services
  5. Parking & Visitor Services
