It is our goal to support Kearney's mission by providing prompt and dependable service. We have put a priority on energy savings projects and the improvement of the facilities comfort and overall appearance. Our services include work on all types of refrigeration, air conditioning, heating, plumbing, compressed air, vacuum and energy management systems.
Prior to the purchase of new equipment please contact Bob Ray, superintendent of physical plant, in order to determine space, power and utility needs. Keep in mind that projects and repairs to equipment and systems installed to benefit a specific research effort are considered researcher owned and are maintained at departmental expense on a recharge basis. To request routine repair or project assistance, please contact Bob Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a written work order. Blank work orders can be obtained in the KARE administrative offices located in Building 105.
