As the airport has grown, the Building Maintenance Dept. has combined age-honored traditions of craftsmanship with the latest computer technology. It's how the crew of 35 — operating on three shifts — keeps up with the wear and tear of millions of passengers a year.
The department averages about 30 calls a day for service and repairs. This is on top of the special projects and regular maintenance. The crew stays ahead of the curve by bringing an engineering mind-set to many of its tasks.
"When a problem comes up, our response has to be immediate. Instead of just repairing something, we go in and analyze why it broke so we don't have to repeat ourselves," says Bill Fitzpatrick, building maintenance supervisor.
Their greatest asset is the wide range of talent. The crew consists of master carpenters, painters, heating and air conditioning technicians, plumbers and locksmiths.
"All the best tools are of no value if you don't have the dedicated people willing to do whatever it takes,” Fitzpatrick noted.
