The university is divided into five geographic maintenance zones. A Superintendent leads each zone, which is staffed with seven to 12 multicrafted technicians. They aim to provide consistent, responsive service based on ownership and accountability for providing a complete job.

A Supervisor leads Shop 950, which is staffed with 10 technicians. They aim to provide consistent, responsive service to maintain the central HVAC and electrical equipment on the MCV Campus.

The zones and Shop 950 will facilitate cost-effective reimbursable services to our customers when requested.
