Our carpenter shop does many of our small carpentry related tasks. They make adjustments and repairs to chairs, tables, and Herman Miller flipper shelves and key boards. They hang pictures, bulletin boards, chalk boards, white boards, smart boards, coat hangers, and TV wall brackets. They do most carpentry repair projects.
Larger carpentry projects, such as installing new doors or new millwork are normally completed by private contractors and are not normally funded by the physical plant.
The Physical Plant does not employ a fulltime carpet layer. Work requests of this nature are completed by hiring private contractors. Private contractors are also hired to do most of the larger carpentry and painting work that is requested. Flooring replacement, mostly carpet, is done by competent outside contractors, hired by the Physical Plant to install approved carpet from bids.
Small Herman Miller adjustments and repairs are completed by the Physical Plant staff, for larger projects requiring purchasing and redesign of existing furniture, we recommend contacting Nate Bierman, with Office Systems Exchange (OSE), at 276-9900. OSE has the state contract to provide refurbished components as well as design and installation of Herman Miller office furniture. Since the state price is 70% off list price , design time, when required, is an extra charge of $45/hour. To purchase office equipment other than Herman Miller, please contact the Purchasing Department.
