Facility Maintenance Decisions

Michigan State Grounds Management Groups Find Benefits from Sharing

Beaumont Depot opened in 2009 as a centralized topsoil storage area on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing. Four year later, the development has emerged as a vital part of the operations for the university’s infrastructure planning and facilities unit.

Managing the use of topsoil, mulch, sand, stone, and recycled concrete are only some of the responsibilities of the staff at Beaumont Depot, located on 20 acres of land that also includes a tree nursery and a parts warehouse shared by the other departments within the infrastructure planning and facilities.

Originally profiled in a 2012 Facility Maintenance Decisions article (click to read), Beaumont Depot has become a model of efficiency and bottom-line savings.
