The plumbers perform general plumbing repairs of valves, faucets, flush-o-meters, urinals, kitchen and cafeteria sinks, laboratory equipment, and hot water heaters. These are only a few of the various activities that the plumbers engage in on a daily basis.

They respond to all plumbing related emergency situations that occur during and after work hours at BBC.

The electricians perform preventative maintenance of all electrical systems, and direct support technicians in procedures related to electrical installations. The electricians also investigate areas of electrical power variations and shifts, and any light deviation and reduction. In addition, they trouble shoot and repair electrical circuits serving buildings, walkways, parking lots, and security systems.

The painters prepare surfaces to be painted using sandpaper, scrapers, sanding machines, and paint removers.
