Building Services

The University's Building Services is broken into two major departments, the custodial and general maintenance departments. The custodial services department cleans approximately one million square feet of building space. This includes over 800,000 square feet in the administrative buildings and 200,000 square feet in the hallways and bathrooms of the residential halls. The general maintenance employees inspect, repair, and/or remodel campus structures. This branch includes repair, painting, finishing, flooring, and carpentry specialists, who provide in-house professional grade cabinetry, furniture, and custom woodwork. The responsibilities of facility coordination (furniture moving/event set-up) and pest control are gathered under the general maintenance umbrella as well.

Daniel L. Orr, Manager of Building Services

Dan first worked at Cedarville from 1981 - 85 and returned in 1997. He manages thirty-four full-time employees and student workers on the Building Services Team. He is responsible for assessing, developing, coordinating and supervising the work of his team. Dan attended Practical Bible Training School (now Davis College).

Prior to coming to Cedarville, Dan worked for 13 years as a residential builder, four years as an assistant pastor, and four years in the tool and die industry.

Dan became the Manager of Building Services, which includes Custodial Services. Dan embraces this position with love and compassion, and his desire is that all of his employees perform quality work at a steady pace so that “whatever they do, they do it for the glory of the Lord.”

In this new position, he enjoys spending time with his employees as well as the challenges of custodial, maintenance and remodeling work.

Custodial Service Regular Cleaning Duties

The goal of Custodial Services is to provide a healthy, clean environment for all University employees, students, guests, and visitors.
