Facilities & Services manages the deferred maintenance backlog for the University’s St. George facilities — Canada’s largest post-secondary campus.
With more than 115,000 students, faculty, and staff using more than 200 buildings spanning an area of 286 hectares, keeping up with maintenance on all the campus facilities is a challenging task. These time-honoured facilities have significant deferred maintenance needs.
The University’s deferred maintenance program systematically addresses many of these needs, including improved electrical and plumbing systems, ventilation, building envelopes, and interior finishes — all while preserving the historical character of the campus.
Energy conservation projects are also being undertaken to reduce energy costs and create a more sustainable campus.
Deferred maintenance report
We continuously manage and address a backlog of repairs and renewals all while enabling world-class teaching and research on our campuses.
Deferred maintenance highlights
Capital projects contribute significantly to reducing our backlog of deferred maintenance. The condition of our facilities is continually being improved as deferred maintenance is addressed not only by operating and fabric projects, but also through the completion of capital projects.
