Facilities Management and Operations

Central Piedmont Facilities Management and Operations supports the college's core business as well as its mission to provide engaging and supportive environments that are conducive to student learning. The overriding values of our facilities operations run parallel with the college's values that spotlight the importance of collaboration, excellence, and accountability.

The college’s asset portfolio includes 56 buildings totaling approximately 4-million SF situated on 256 acres and across six campuses and one center located throughout Mecklenburg County, NC. Our philosophy and approach to facilities management at Central Piedmont is based on a robust Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) model which focuses heavily on preventive maintenance, inspections, active analytics, key performance indicators, and customer service at its core.

Facilities Services strives to implement the latest technology, best practices, and methods in the industry while exercising creative and innovative technical approaches to meet the unique needs of Central Piedmont.

Facilities Management Partner: Our Outsourced Approach to Maintenance Service Delivery

Central Piedmont has implemented an outsourced service delivery model to address anticipated future growth and to improve upon the day-to-day facilities maintenance services to Central Piedmont.
