It does this in an environment where funding is limited and priorities are ever-shifting. Hear about some of the challenges and successes that the agency has experienced in the past several years in its comprehensive facilities management of Stanislaus County’s 140-building inventory – totaling more than 2.5 million sq. ft. Discussed will be maintenance – routine, preventive and predictive – of HVAC and electrical systems, water and wastewater systems, roofing, security systems, and more.
