The Maintenance Service is in charge of the maintenance and conservation of the building, of all its facilities and of the equipment. It works from the year 1991, when the Institute moved to the new building. It is also responsible for all the equipment, materials and tools (mechanic, electronic and electric) available to all the ICMAB personnel.
As every year, the Maintenance Service has carried out preventive maintenance and direct or indirect reparations of multiple breakdowns, and has been in charge of installing new equipment and installations. It is important to highlight the renewal of the compressed air compressor that supports the installation of this gas in the MATGAS building.
From the Maintenance Service we want to thank for their work, dedication and friendship Roberto Ibañez and Juan José Monis, who left the ICMAB Maintenance Service to follow a new stage of their lives in Valencian and Andalusian lands with their families in February and March 2019.
In mid-2019, work was completed on the structure and air conditioning of two new clean room laboratories, consisting of a Chemistry Laboratory, corresponding to the ERC-Nest project, and a Chemistry and Physics Laboratory, corresponding to the ERC-Tmol4Trans project. During 2020 the laboratories are expected to be completed with the assembly of the fume cupboards and suitable laboratory furniture.
