The trades section performs work in the following areas - electrical, plumbing, machining, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, carpentry, painting, masonry, lock and door maintenance, and operation of the combined heat and power plant on the main campus.

Key Requests & Building Access: Keys, Card Readers & FOBs
Keys to campus buildings are issued through the University Police Department. Forms for key requests are available at the UPD office in Bray 19, and should be submitted directly to UPD.
ID Card Readers & FOBs
If you have a problem using your ID card or FOB to gain access to a building or room, contact University Police at ext. 6667.
- Door, Desk, and File Cabinet Locks – if experiencing a problem, contact the Physical Plant & Facilities main office at ext. 6588.
The number one priority for the trades section is to perform preventative maintenance to reduce campus energy costs and to handle emergencies such as major leaks, power outages, and building-wide heating, ventilation and air conditioning outages. Issues such as adjusting room temperature for personal comfort and installation of non-essential equipment will be lower in priority.
The trades section of the Physical Plant department is responsible for providing utilities, including electricity, gas, water and steam, to state and research equipment.
The department is not responsible for repairing equipment that is not considered part of the building. For example, walk-in coolers and freezers are considered part of the building, while stand-alone refrigerators, freezers and autoclaves are not considered part of the building.
