Notes:

*Operations and Maintenance supports Design and Construction projects. Supporting these outages and projects are a billable request, which is billed directly to the project.
**Normal wear and tear is the unavoidable deterioration of a surface resulting from normal use by the tenant. Wear and tear includes any deterioration that occurs under normal conditions and under normal use. Anything that can be reasonably fixed after a good cleaning or a simple repair is something considered to be wear and tear.
***To engrave and install interior signage or name plates please submit your request through the Design and Construction request form.
Any billable work that requires overtime will be billed as such (e.g. urgent requests, work that must be performed off hours).
Any items not listed are on a case by case basis and will be determined by the responsible maintenance shop.
