Office of the Executive Director

Facilities Services (FS) supports Antelope Valley College’s mission by maintaining and enhancing buildings, grounds and the physical infrastructure in a cost-effective, safe and environmentally responsible manner.

Collectively, the Facilities Services staff identified three critical areas for maintaining the FS focus needed to support our mission. The three areas are SAFETY, SERVICE, and SUSTAINABILITY and are represented by the symbol S3.

Facilities Services maintains over $350 million of Antelope Valley College’s physical assets including over 662,585 square feet of building space, 125 acres of campus area and 65 acres of undeveloped property.

The employees of Facilities Services represent a broad range of expertise and are known for their dedication to the work that they do.
