RESPONSIBLE USE AND MAINTENANCE

The proprietors of LandMark University have over the years shown absolute commitment to facility development and infrastructural advancement. 

Almost, yearly we witness large sums of funds being invested into massive, world class facilities ranging from academic buildings to residential facilities.

It is therefore expedient that we demonstrate responsibility as we ensure that these provisions are judiciously and effectively managed. 

This accounts for why the University mandates a full Directorate to be in charge of the maintenance activities off the University estate. 

FACILITY MANAGEMENT DEFINED: 

“Amongst other things, facility management seeks to promote effective, careful and thoughtful utilization of properties in order to maximize comfort and convenience”. (Sina-Olulana. 2015)  

In other words, when a facility is misused or wrongly handled, it can jeopardize comfort, safety, health and security. 

Effective in this context refers to: using a facility for the intended design (original use). 

Careful in that phrase represents: Using facility with absolute caution e.g. door punching, slamming and forceful entries. These would cumulate in damages which in turn jeopardize security, safety and comfort. 

Thoughtful expects using a public facility just like you will handle yours. Remembering that responsibility is one of our core values as a University the ownership mentality is a major expectation from all stakeholders. 

We have a University management that is committed to prompt maintenance of its infrastructure base and the Directorate of Physical Planning and Development has been saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that this is efficiently carried out. 

In doing this, the department has also put a system in place to effectively dispatch this assignment, through the following different units:

  • » Electrical Services
  • » Mechanical Services 
  • » Civil Works 
  • » Hostel and Estate Services 
  • » Campus Maintenance unit
