Facilities teams maintaining an ideal exam experience for UBC students

Every semester, the Custodial Services team and Municipal Services’ Streets & Operations Support (SOS) team within Facilities are heavily involved with the set-up and take-down of exam spaces. Setting up an exam space is not an easy task. Not only are the teams expected to perform a high volume of work in a short period of time, but there are also strict procedures they need to follow to ensure compliance with UBC’s exam requirements, especially with space setup and delivery of exam booklets.

Last semester, the teams once again demonstrated excellent teamwork and dedication in setting up the Osborne Gym (OSBO) and Student Recreation Centre (SRC) for exam season.

A total of 126.25 hours was spent on setting up SRC — 106.75 hours from Custodians, 2.5 hours from Utility Workers, and 17 hours from Storekeepers; and 60.5 hours were spent on Osborne Gym — 45.5 hours from Custodians and 15 hours from Storekeepers.

Big thank you to our team members for continuing to support and maintain an excellent learning environment for students at UBC!
