Services provided by the Facilities Management Department
The Department discharges its responsibilities and provides services under six units:
The University is connected to the national electric power grid through a dedicated power line that was constructed in 2008. The operation and maintenance of this power line, from the high tension network to the domestic power system is the responsibility of the Electrical unit, which is staffed by 3 electrical engineers and 17 electricians.
The mechanical unit is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the generating plants, air-conditioner units and metal works. To keep the activities of the University running smoothly, with minimum interruption, power supply is backed up with a generating plant capacity of over 7MVA in the two campuses and this is being operated and maintained by a team of engineers and technicians
Water and Sewage
The responsibility of the water and sewage unit is to Operate and maintain the water supply network/sewage system of the University. Water supply in both the main and mini campuses is solely through boreholes. In the main campus there are presently eighteen 3-phase boreholes being run directly by the department. In Iperu campus there are 3. The water distribution system is made up of elevated tanks, surface and underground tanks with a PVC reticulation that supplies water through gravity to the various buildings.
The primary aim of the Civil unit is to preserve a building in its initial state by carrying out necessary and consistent repair work in order to effectively serve its desired purpose. This they carry out by rebuilding/repairing walls, floors, drainages, tiling etc., and of course, re-painting.
This unit repairs, fabricates, and carries out installation on any wooden infrastructure in the University. The Unit also has a commercial arm that handles carpentry requests.
This is the Unit that serves as the caretaker for the University facilities. It coordinates the maintenance works being handled by the department and also handles issues dealing with housing, rent administration and property evaluation.
