Physical Plant is now Facilities Services

Because a preeminent university needs preeminent facilities, we are committed to the services that help you achieve your goals.

The high standard of progress all Gators measure themselves by, is built in part on the foundation of our historic and modern facilities, dependable utilities and our robust and reliable infrastructure.

We are pleased to announce a fundamental change to one of UF’s largest divisions, Physical Plant. Beginning in September 2017, Physical Plant is renamed as Facilities Services, as a reminder of this ongoing pursuit of excellence, and our responsibilities to maintaining preeminent facilities for a preeminent university.

This name change also expresses our constant dedication to a campus that supports every pursuit, each discovery, and all our collective efforts for the Gator Good.

Mark Helms and the Physical Plant leadership consulted with The Agency (a unit within the College of Journalism and Communications) to develop an integrated communications strategy. Facilities Services will soon launch its With Every Step campaign, to make a powerful statement about the people and roles within this division that helps move UF forward.

The Facilities Services brand is based on integrity, professionalism and dependability. By making this change and being visible to the UF community, we demonstrate the importance of the commitment Facilities Services makes With Every Step taken across campus: as a vital contributor to individual efforts, as well as UF’s position as a preeminent institution.
