Buildings and Facilities Officer
James is one of the key members of the building’s Facilities team.
The Facilities team is the main support network setup to help run the daily operation of the Building and it's laboratories. Working under the guidance of both the Building & Facilities Manager and Building's Laboratory Manager, James ensures that both aspects of the building are able to run as smoothly as possible. This in turn provides a service that allows all of the building's occupants to work to the best of their abilities.
James works with Peter, the other Buildings & Facilities Officer, to help rectify building related issues, Health & Safety matters, problem solve equipment faults, respond to reactive failures/breakdowns and coordinate & arrange building run contracts as well as managing the service engineers & external contractors associated with these contracts. Together with the Laboratory Support, James helps to oversee the running of the building's Autoclave and Glasswash Facility.
