The Office of Facilities Management professionally maintains, renovates and improves buildings and grounds. OFM provides quality support services that provide a safe, comfortable and attractive environment for tenants and visitors, while preserving and protecting state property under its management.
OFM directs management, operations and maintenance of 2.5 million square feet of space in 23 major State buildings valued at $690 million. Primary buildings include the State Capitol, Governor’s Mansion and the office buildings in the Capitol Complex and Tulsa. OFM maintains approximately 150 landscaped acres within the State Capitol Park, Mansion grounds, and Tulsa Office complex.
The Central Maintenance Unit is comprised of managers and technicians who receive and resolve tenant work requests. Technicians are trained in many areas to develop a diverse set of skills while honing a specialized expertise.
OFM strives to provide aesthetically pleasing surroundings for state buildings that adhere to environmentally-friendly precautions and champion water conservation efforts.
- Native and adapted plant species are incorporated where possible.
- Used plant pots and cuttings of mature landscape plants are traded for seasonal color plants to enhance the grounds.
- Plants are relocated to new areas when they are endangered by construction.
- Tenant staff and guests should properly dispose of cigarette butts in the appropriate receptacles and not place them in planters, flowerbeds, lawns or surface parking lots.
- Issues with grounds maintenance should be reported by initiating a tenant work order request.
The Energy Management division of the Office of Facilities Managment provides energy accounting services, manages building energy profiles through the EnergyCAP program and maintains the OFM Sustainability Plan. EM collaborates with the Facilities Services division during the planning and management of construction projects and to establish efficiency standards for equipment, processes and buildings.
Any successes of the OFM Sustainability Plan would not be possible without the support and cooperative efforts of the agencies in each building. In addition to upgrading the building’s mechanical and technological aspects, it is imperative that state agencies work together to develop a culture to improve building sustainability.
