Mechanical Services

The Mechanical Services Department is responsible for the operation, maintenance, and repair of the University’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.

Superintendent – Stephen Frawley

Control Systems

Johnson Controls Inc. is the sole provider of our building automation systems on the Statesboro campus, while Siemens Controls provides this service for the Armstrong campus.

These two systems allow us the ability to monitor and control equipment status, hot water temperatures, chilled water temperatures, discharge air temperatures, relative humidity, and pressures. This is a critical component allowing our team to provide a more conducive and comfortable learning environment for our faculty, staff and students.

Supervisor – Matthew Jenkins

Electrical Services

The Electrical Shop operates, maintains, and repairs building electrical systems to include lighting, power distribution, fire alarm, and emergency power.

Supervisor – Mike Markovcic

Energy Management

The Energy Management department oversees campus energy usage for the University. Our Energy Manager works closely on all construction projects to ensure that the systems being installed are the most efficient, reliable, and cost effective. We have implemented a load shedding program through our building automation system (BAS) that provides two stages of energy reduction. Our BAS system monitors energy usage by reading total amps coming into campus. Once this threshold is reached, the two stage process is initiated to reduce energy consumption by the campus air conditioning systems.

Supervisor – Steve Watkins


The HVAC Shop operates, maintains, and repairs all of the University’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment as well as providing preventative maintenance measures to extend the life of the equipment. This equipment includes cooling towers, chillers, boilers, pumps, motors, air handling units, and veritable frequency drives. 

Supervisor – Justin Cameron

Plumbing Services

The Plumbing Shop provides maintenance and repairs for campus water systems to include all storm, sewer, domestic water, lift stations, and associated plumbing fixtures. Ninety five percent of the domestic water that is used on the Statesboro campus is owned and operated by Facilities Services. There are two deep wells which supply this water, with an associated 300,000 gallon water tower located on Plant Drive.

Supervisor – Ricky Sapp
