Dalhousie campus is split into five distinct areas called zones. Each zone is staffed by a dedicated team of professional trades personnel. The goal of each zone team is to provide quality, responsive service, maintenance of buildings and associated services to maximize available funds.

Zone Responsibilities

Each zone is staffed with a supervisor and a team of seven to eleven multi-trades personnel. Their responsibilities include:

  • Building structures and systems
  • Electrical distribution and lighting
  • Small maintenance and repairs
  • Building equipment preventive maintenance
  • Water, including supply, drainage/sewage
  • Heating systems

The trades personnel in each zone are assigned through our work order process called FAMIS. 

Each department or faculty has an office administrator who has been given a FAMIS username and password.  If you do not have access to FAMIS, please see your office administrator to submit your request.
