Facilities Management & Planning maintains administrative offices throughout the Charles River Campus to ensure a clean, safe, and productive working environment. We manage recycling and document shredding services as well as trash removal, and perform routine and emergency repairs. We support you with set-up for small events, small furniture moves, installation of whiteboards, and more. We’re also your first stop if you’re thinking of  renovations or major changes to furniture and office design.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Your Area Manager is your first point of contact for all cleaning and maintenance services. FMP custodians clean offices and common areas including bathrooms, kitchens, and hallways. Our skilled trades and maintenance workers respond to routine and emergency requests for repairs, and perform upgrades and improvements identified during annual inspections.
