Trade Services

The Facilities Building Trades organization conducts corrective and preventative maintenance on roofing and interior building systems and operates the electrical distribution and energy management systems for the UConn Storrs Campus.  The organization includes the Carpentry, Electrical, Energy Management Systems, HVAC, Locksmith, Plumbing, and Roofing/Sheet Metal skilled trade shops and is currently staffed by a total of 96 employees.  Within the Facilities Building Trades organization also exists a second shift work group typically consisting of seven employees and a third shift work group made up of two HVAC Technicians.  Our goal is to provide excellent customer service and to safely and efficiently minimize the duration of routine maintenance and equipment repairs impacting the University at large.
