Mission statement

The Physical Plant is located on the main campus of Lake Erie College. Our department is spearheaded by the Director of the Physical Plant, Herb Dill. Herb has extensive experience in all points of facilities as well as an Electrical Engineering Degree, HVAC certification and other certificates in machine and electrical repair. Under Herb's direction the Physical Plant oversees all aspects in facilities from plumbing to HVAC to carpentry and everything else involved in daily maintenance. The Physical Plant also oversees all new construction projects and development of future endeavors to help better Lake Erie College and its student experience. The main goal of the Physical Plant is to make sure that everything is functioning properly and to develop and put into motion plans to correct larger issues within the college. Although located on main campus the Physical Plant also is responsible for other properties owned by the college such as the Equestrian Center. With Herb's leadership the Physical plant has transformed into a one stop shop with as little outsourcing as possible to maintain and avoid added costs. With Herb developing that "we can do this" attitude Lake Erie College can overcome obstacles that would be an enormous undertaking at other small colleges, such as the new College Hall steps and landing. Great things are to come from the Physical Plant and great things will continue on with good leadership and a positive attitude.
