Making a Difference with Deferred Maintenance

The Asset Management Facilities Condition Assessment (FCA) and ICAMP teams within Facilities Management (FM) are currently tracking nearly 200 deferred maintenance projects funded by Assembly Bill 94 (AB94) from 2019, 2020, and 2021 along with the State Budget Act from 2021. What a huge undertaking! Let’s check in with the team and see where we are today.

Student Spotlight: Grad Students Make Their Mark With Energy Projects

Since the Fall of 2021, the Energy and Engineering office has been working with two Graduate Student Researchers: Tanner Palmer and Pratik Raj Khadka. Both are first-year graduate students pursuing their Master of Science in Energy Systems and using their knowledge to contribute to FM projects. They enjoy working with experienced team members at the office, and the staff applauds the new ideas and energy that students bring to the office.  

Changing the Norm Saves Energy
