PURPOSE: To ensure the continuity of the decor of renovated, refurbished and newly constructed buildings, interior structures and furnishings.
- BUILDINGS AND INTERIOR STRUCTURES
- All construction, painting, repair, maintenance, and alteration to buildings must be accomplished by Facilities Management craftpersons or contracted through Facilities Management. Random modification can damage the appearance, operation, and serviceability of facilities. This applies to all partitions, doors, windows, window coverings, floors, cabinets, shelving, bulletin boards, chalkboards, lighting, and other equipment attached to a structure.
- Facilities Management is responsible for retaining color boards provided by architects or interior designers. Architects or interior designers provide color boards as a part of the cost of new building construction, renovation or remodeling. Color boards include samples for carpet, tile, paint, wallpaper, laminate, and molding.
- Facilities Management is responsible for providing normal repair and painting of walls and inner structure. The Director of Facilities Management maintains an overall maintenance plan for all College buildings. Facilities Management will honor the unity of buildings and follow the color boards for all repair, replacement and painting.
- Facilities Management evaluates requests for repair and painting in accordance with the overall maintenance plan.
- The Director of Facilities Management, in consultation with the President, will authorize deviations or changes to color schemes (for areas of responsibility listed in item #2 above) provided on building color boards. Changes may occur, for example, due to obsolescence and other factors.
- FURNITURE AND OTHER FURNISHINGS
- Budget Administrators must make all requests for new office furniture, including conference and reception area furnishings, to the Purchasing Office. The Purchasing office is responsible for ensuring that furniture finishes and wood grains coordinate with interior color schemes.
- The Director of Procurement Services and Risk Management, in consultation with the President, may authorize deviations or changes to color schemes (for furniture and other furnishings) provided on building color boards. Changes may occur, for example, due to obsolescence and other factors.
- Office furniture, including conference and reception area furnishings, purchased as a part of new building construction, renovation or remodeling is not to be moved to other buildings. College employees are not to remove furniture and other furnishings from general assignment classrooms and conference rooms. Inventory Control personnel monitor these rooms to ensure that they contain the required number of seats as determined by the Director of Instructional Services.
