Work Requests and Forms

Work Requests

When you have a facilities-related service request that requires action from the Facilities Management department, kindly enter a work request. Once entered into our system, work requests are distributed to Facilities staff based on priority and available resources.

All requests submitted are reviewed prior to approval, and Facilities may contact requestors for further information if necessary. If work, either maintenance or modifications is found to be the result of negligence, the responsible department will be charged accordingly.

Not sure how to enter a work request or perhaps you’ve submitted a work request but need to make a change and are not sure how? Check out our Facilities Tutorials here.

For a list of cost recovery rates please see below.

Priority Categories for Work Requests

Work will normally be carried out within the following parameters:

  • Emergency: Includes the protection of health and safety, repair of equipment essential to building operation, prevention or restoring of loss of function. Facilities Management will dispatch someone immediately.
  • Urgent: Includes problems which can cause escalating damage to facilities and/or property, or which detrimentally affect departmental functioning. Urgent requests are normally responded to within 7 business days, depending on available resources.
  • Routine: Includes regularly scheduled and routine maintenance services (including events). Routine maintenance requests which directly affect occupant comfort will be given priority over chargeable requests within this category. Routine requests wil be responded to within 10-14 business days.

Chargeable Service Requests

Work performed by Facilities Management may be chargeable and depending on the team required to perform the work, the labor charge per hour may vary. The chart below provides examples of chargeable work requests. Hourly labour cost and a ‘parts’ or ‘supply’ charge may apply. Faculty and Staff are welcome to submit a request for an “Estimate” via the Archibus work order system prior to any requested work being performed. It should be noted that there are situations where a third party may need to perform the requested task, therefore third party rates would apply.
