Campus Development is responsible for the delivery of larger scale capital projects, space planning and campus property (acquisitions, disposals and asset management). Our work also focuses on operational sustainability, particularly the delivery of our scope 1 and 2 carbon net zero 2030 target and setting a target to reduce scope 3 emissions.
What we do
Our overall focus is on the development of a world class future campus; from planning right through to delivery. Our strong commitment to collaborative working is integral to creating a masterplan for the University’s built environment. One capable of imagining its future needs, and also of mapping the physical and digital projects required to achieve the vision.
We ensure that the needs of our educational, learning, research and professional services are met by our current built environment, and continue to be met in the future by systematically planning spaces and creating places.
