"My team is focused on solving problems and determined about making UCT a better place for students and staff." - Christo Odendaal, Director: P&S Maintenance and Operations
Maintenance has three main categories:
- Reactive repairs: This is the day-to-day maintenance.
- Planned work: This follows a schedule and is an inspection service of all our plant and equipment.
- Refurbishment projects: Our inspections often reveal which areas of our Plant and Equipment need refurbishments and this is undertaken as a project.
In general you will not be charged for routine maintenance, repair or replacement of elements of your building structure, systems, components and/or infrastructure.
This type of work is performed by Properties and Services on a schedule that is determined by priority of need taking into account impact on the academic calendar, life cycle of the system or component, availability of internal staff, appointed out-tasked contractors and funding allocations.
You will however be charged for services that involves a non-maintenance type request, all building alterations, additions, improvements and so forth that fall outside of the asset register, capital expenditure programme and the installation of or maintenance of all departmental owned equipment. In such cases Properties and Services will provide quotations, costing and feasibility to enable the faculty or department to budget, avail funds or apply to the annual capital expenditure programme.
