The UPC Central and HSC Building Trades shops are comprised of tradespeople organized to perform small renovations, installations and other construction-related activities. The carpenters, electricians, locksmiths, plumbers, and painters of the FMS Central Shop perform and manage single trade projects while also providing their technical expertise to renovation projects managed by Capital Construction and Development (CCD).

In partnership with the USC Auxiliary Services Department (including Housing and Hospitality), CSS is responsible for the preventive maintenance services regarding: water heaters; boilers; sewer ejectors; grease interceptors, sewer jetting; exhaust hoods/fans; and backflow testing and repair.

Additionally, the FMS Central Shop assists in attending to issues regarding campus water mains, storm drains, sewer mains, gas laterals, and pulling permits as necessary.  We also assist Capital Construction Development (CCD) and Construction Project Management Services (CPMS) with various projects.
