Summary

The physical plant administrator manages men, money and materials to create the best possible physical environment for the educational processes at his institution. Areas of concern of the plant administrator are administration, building maintenance, janitorial services, traffic, security and safety, utilities, grounds, alterations, and improvements. Elements suggested for successful plant management are--(1) planning, both immediate and long-range--defining goals and determining means, (2) organizing, with emphasis on communications, (3) supervision--directing, motivating and co-ordinating, and (4) controlling--setting standards, checking and reporting on performance, and correction of performance. Development of people is also listed as an important aspect of successful plant administration. A job description for a superintendent of buildings and grounds is outlined under two major headings--(1) development for approval of the business manager programs for the maintenance, repair, and operation of college buildings and grounds, and (2) assisting, serving and acting for the business manager in planning the development of the physical plant.
