The Facilities Management Department is responsible for providing a safe, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment for all of its customers throughout its 18,000 square mile service area. Adequate lighting, comfortable indoor temperatures, cleanliness, campus safety and landscaped areas for all to enjoy are proactively maintained on a daily basis often out of sight of its customers. In addition to the Facilities Management (FM) department’s daily routine, FM is involved in area remodeling, energy efficiency projects and new construction projects.
WNC’s Facilities Management Department led all NSHE institutions with Americans with Disabilities Act compliance utilizing state Capital Improvement Project funding. The project looked at the Carson campus, revising grades, restrooms, parking and exterior doors making the campus more accessible for its customers requiring accommodations; the project is ongoing and we are currently in phase three of four.
