Estate Matters

Looking after, 370 buildings, worth 3 billion pounds, (2017/18) is no small task, requiring repair and maintenance skills that cover listed buildings hundreds of years old up to cutting edge green technologies. Our in-house knowledge of the quirks of such a varied estate is unparalleled. 

Headline statutory compliance performance has improved to 93%

I wanted to pass on some great feedback received from David Cardwell, Chair of the Health & Safety Exec Committee and of Planning & Resources Committee.  We have reported to these committees that our headline statutory compliance performance has improved to 93%, which is a significant improvement on where we were a couple of years ago and is testament to the work you and your teams have been doing.  David asked for both committees to formally minute their thanks and appreciation for this achievement.

The Strategic Framework for the Development of the University Estate 2016 was prepared under the governance of the University’s Estates Strategy Committee and approved by the Council and the General Board on 7th November 2016 (click here to see the Reporter Notice).

The framework seeks to ensure that the University estate supports the University’s mission by developing and managing the estate so that it will:

Be an expression of the University’s academic excellence, with high quality places and services, in order to contribute to the University’s and the City’s competitive advantage;

Support productivity by delivering a positive experience for students and staff;

Be developed sustainably;

Deliver value for money, and generate additional income, to improve the University’s financial position.
