The Building Maintenance Unit of Facilities Management provides routine and preventative maintenance. Most notably they are the folks who change the light bulbs within the 5,000,000+ square feet of state funded space here at UC Irvine, as well as perform roof preventative maintenance and minor repairs. They also provide basic maintenance services to the classrooms, lecture halls, restrooms, halls and lobby areas.
