Hi Arthur, at Humber College we encourage our academic folks to take on the responsibility of operation and maintenance of the infrastructure they build. For example, our Arboretum is maintained by the Landscaping Program at our College. We also have similar academic projects for solar panels and our academic teams manage their maintenance. At this stage, is it possible for your team to re-start the conversation with the academic team so they can take on the maintenance and operations of the finished infrastructures they built? I hope this helps.
