Maintenance of Campus Facilities

As an institution we are not only concerned with bricks and mortar, but also student and staff well-being. Effective institutional maintenance protects capital investment, ensures the health and safety of students and supports educational performance.

Being located in prime South Mumbai area, we meet the challenges of maintenance and utilization of physical, academic and support facilities. The college is proactive in developing and implementing a facilities plan for dealing with these inevitabilities. Thus, the college lays down policies and procedures for effective facilities maintenance. The consequences of an ill-conceived maintenance policy and procedure affect teaching and learning, student and staff health, day-to-day building operations, and the long-range fiscal outlook of the organization.

Facilities maintenance is concerned about more than just resource management. It aims at providing clean and safe environments for students. It is also about creating a physical setting that is appropriate and adequate for learning. Facilities maintenance and utilization builds the foundation of physical, educational and financial of the institution and should, therefore, be a focus of both day-to-day operations and long-range functioning.

The facilities plan follows the procedure:

  • Survey of the present condition
  • Prepare budget costs to needs
  • Send the requisition to the management
  • Arrange the financing
  • Executing the facilities plan (operate, maintain, optimally utilize and promote facilities and services to efficiently and effectively support the instructional programs)
  • Auditing of the plan
