Physical Resources aspires to be an innovative leader in sustainable campus planning, design and facilities management. We work closely with students, faculty, staff, alumni and the wider community to provide a welcoming and healthy environment. The Physical Resources department consists of five groups.

Business Operations manages programs such as Energy Management and Deferred Maintenance, develops Capital Plans, establishes bulk utility contracts, initiates continuous improvement programs such as Quality Assurance for the department.

Facilities Operations manages the iServiceDesk, issues keys and ensures the optimal operation and maintenance of the systems that keep Laurier's buildings functioning, including heating and cooling, plumbing, electrical and life safety.

Grounds and Custodial Services maintains Laurier's grounds and buildings, including landscaping, recycling and waste removal, set up and special events, moving services and general cleaning with environmentally preferred products.

Planning, Design and Construction manages the planning, design and construction of Laurier's physical assets, supporting and enhancing the student, academic, research and administrative environs of Laurier.

Sustainability Office assesses and develops sustainability practices including transportation, waste, energy, water, construction, procurement, food, conservation and academics, and ensures that these practices are integrated into all areas of the university.
