Corrective and Planned Maintenance

Plant Operations is responsible for ensuring heating, air conditioning and other equipment functions properly. We perform preventative maintenance in addition to handling other maintenance requests.

Work requests are categorized as follows:

Emergency 

Maintenance emergencies include health hazards, safety hazards or severe damage. If there is a maintenance emergency, contact Plant Operations immediately at 215-871-6750 (Philadelphia campus) or 678-225-7458 (Georgia campus).

In an emergency situation, you may also contact the Security and Public Safety Department at 215-871-6351 (Philadelphia campus) or 678-225-7452 (Georgia campus). Security personnel can immediately communicate with Plant Operations staff.

Urgent

Any maintenance issue that interferes with a department’s ability to perform its primary duties is considered urgent. Plant Operations will respond to these requests within 24 hours of notification.

Routine

Routine service calls include inconvenient and problematic maintenance situations. These issues will be addressed within eight working days of notification.

Deferred

This category includes minor repairs, seasonal work and facility improvements. This work will be scheduled when approved by the Chief Facilities Officer.
