About Us

Who We Are

Longwood University's Department of Facilities Management and Real Property Management, headed by Vice President Richard Bratcher, is composed of six sub-departments: Administrative Services; Campus Design and Construction; Landscaping and Grounds Management; Campus Planning and Development; Physical Plant; and the Campus Master Plan


What We Do

Each of our sub-departments works in conjunction with each of the others to maintain the comfort, safety, sustainability, and aesthetic character of this 50+ acre campus.

Sprawling lawns, eye-catching color gardens, meticulously maintained Colonial brick buildings in the Palladian/ Jeffersonian architectural style, soaring trees: all fall under our care.

Members of our team handle all areas of beautification from planting and caring for the smallest of autumn's pansies to managing the design and construction of the majestic LEED Gold Certified Student Health and Wellness Center. 



Recently, the University has adopted a sustainability initiative, which we are very excited to be spearheading. We not only promote recycling efforts, but ensure that all of our projects are as capable as possible of, as the 1987 Brundtland Report states:

"meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
