A large workforce of in-house and contracted tradespeople provide preventive, corrective and reactive maintenance services to buildings and infrastructure at ANU.

Facilities and Services Division manage maintenance via a computer based maintenance management system (MMS) called Maximo.  All service requests should be logged through this system via your local building custodian or nominated delegate.

Service requests are ranked allowing the maintenance team to respond according to priority.
