The Cornell University campus is widely admired as one of the world's most beautiful academic settings. The Division of Facilities and Campus Services is committed to providing the highest quality service to faculty, students, staff, alumni and visitors.
With more than 260 major buildings enhancing the magnificent landscape of the Ithaca campus, approximately 1,000 highly talented and dedicated staff serve as steward of the campus resources and operations.
Facilities Management (FM) provides maintenance, grounds, and custodial services to the entire campus. FM serves as a partner within the zone structure for the Contract Colleges (CC), Endowed (EN), and Student and Campus Life (SCL) zones.
As a key steward of the University's facilities, FM is responsible for facility assessments, skilled trades, general construction, building care, grounds, recycling, asbestos, and the management of planned, corrective, and preventive maintenance.
Under supervision of the Zone Facility Director (ZFD), the Zone Facilities Manager (ZFM) provides leadership in a team-oriented participative management environment for delivery of preventive and corrective maintenance and planned maintenance projects. The ZFM will coordinate and supervise the activities of multiple skilled trades staff including maintenance mechanics and maintenance assistants. The ZFM will oversee and collaborate with other ZFMs, both inside and outside of their zone, to ensure productivity, consistency, quality, and efficiency expectations are being met. The ZFM should proactively communicate regularly with the Zone Facility Director (ZFD), Maintenance Planners, BC Associate Directors, FM Administration, FM Operations and our campus partners about scope, schedule, budgets, and solicit feedback about customer satisfaction.
The ZFM works with Facilities Management (FM) staff as well as our campus partners' unit staff to understand their facilities problems and needs. They will develop work schedules and provide emergency assistance and response to zone maintenance needs. They should exercise stewardship in maintenance that models the goals of Facilities Service and the University in support of our Service Level Agreements. Communicate, collaborate and cooperate with the ZFDs, ZFMs, Maintenance Planners, BC Associate Directors, FM Administration, FM Operations and other Facilities Services organizations to define and implement initiatives and efficiencies.
