How Can I Report Problems?


We depend on you to report facility problems within your department. Plant Operations is here to maintain the Health Sciences Center, Preston Smith Library, Academic Classroom Building, Texas Tech Physicians Medical Pavilion and the Center for Cardiovascular Health facilities. Building systems are included in our preventive maintenance program. If you have trouble with building systems such as electrical, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), plumbing or other components of systems which are part of the infrastructure, call 743-2070 and report the problem. Plant Operations will assign a work order to your request, and a representative of Plant Operations will respond. We provide telephone coverage 24 hours a day and on-call personnel will respond in situations requiring immediate attention.

E-Mail correspondence to individuals does not guarantee that your request for service will be entered into the system. Work requests by phone continue to be the most effective procedure for assuring that your facilities issues are addressed.

Extended Air Handler Run-Time Requests

Plant Operations plays an integral role in reducing energy consumption by minimizing equipment run times. HVAC-related utility consumption is the single-most significant energy-related expenditure. HVAC equipment run-times are scheduled to meet departmental needs with consideration for institutional funding.

Facility occupants requiring extended run-times to accommodate events should provide requests 36 hours in advance by fax to 743-1090. "Request for Extended HVAC" should be in the subject line. Provide specific information to include date, times, room numbers, and a contact name and phone number so clarification can be obtained, if required.

See TTUHSC OP61.10 for additional information.
