Many research and teaching activities at York are supported by full technical service facilities, including a machine shop, a student machine shop, an electronics shop, a glassblowing shop and two science stores.
If you have questions about the operation of the technical services department in general, please contact Brad Sheeller at email@example.com or Room 317 Lumbers Building.
The technicians have more than 150 years of combined experience. Work is requested by submitting a Job Request Form to the shop staff by e-mail or in person (Read SOP for Submitting Work to the Shops [PDF]). A $65 per hour rate applies to all work done by shop staff; however the Faculties of Science and Health subsidize work performed for its staff and faculty members. Materials are extra and are not included in hourly rates.
The shops are open Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
