General Services


The General Services group was established at the Laboratory in 1946 to provide vital services necessary for the operation of the research and administration groups within the Laboratory. The General Services group reconfigures laboratory spaces, assembles and moves labs and office furniture, as well as assisting with experimental equipment that is being shipped to off-campus sites.

During conferences, seminars and meetings, the General Services group provides transportation and assists with logistics. On a daily basis the group makes pickups and deliveries on campus and at local vendors. The group also provides a shuttle service to the Bates Research and Engineering Center in Middleton, MA upon request. (Bates is located twenty-five miles north of campus.) This group is also responsible for the maintenance and assignment of 5 lab vehicles (provided by MIT) and one forklift.

The Administrator for HR, EHS and Facilities is responsible for the daily operations of the group, assists with the coordination of the Laboratory's space changes, and maintenance of records on 185,338 square feet of laboratory space. The Administrator also serves as the Laboratory EHS Coordinator and interacts with Laboratory EHS Reps as well as safety officials from MIT EHS and OSHA.
