The Physical Plant Area includes nine departments: Grounds, Building Services, Carpenters, Electrical, HVAC, Locksmith, Painters, Plumbers, and the Power Plant.  In addition to ongoing housekeeping and maintenance, Physical Plant provides support and guidance for capital improvement projects: from oversight of construction, installation, and updating of fire protection services to the creation of new living spaces.

For faculty, staff, and students who require services the Physical Plant work order form is located in the list of services on the Welcome page of InsideWheaton.

A work order should be submitted for all NON-emergency requested work, such as moving a file cabinet, maintenance-related repairs, and painting, transferring records to storage, etc. If you have questions or need assistance, contact Karen Karevicius via email at

For emergency issues, please call the Physical Plant office at ext. 3879 to report the problem. The office will then contact the appropriate department for a response. Typical issues that fit the emergency category include loss of electricity, a clogged toilet, leaking, or flooding.
