Facilities Operations

The Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities' Facilities Operations team supports Virginia Tech’s mission and goals by maintaining buildings, electrical/mechanical systems, and the grounds of the main campus to provide a reliable, efficient, functional, and beautiful setting for the campus community to carry out their education, research, and service.

The team is entrusted with the care and maintenance of Virginia Tech’s campuses in Blacksburg, Roanoke, and the greater Washington, D.C., metro area and the university’s research and agricultural facilities located throughout the commonwealth.

With over 300 personnel, the team is responsible for the oversight of facility services in a responsive, efficient, consistent, and courteous manner, providing all campus constituents with quality service and a safe, clean, and aesthetically pleasing environment, while efficiently managing expenses, maximizing service levels, and achieving aspirational standards.

Facilities Operations is responsible for coordinating university efforts to assure that buildings and grounds constantly express the sense of place and quality that is intrinsic to Virginia Tech and providing effective vision, leadership, and strategic direction for the delivery of non-capital construction (renovation) services
