Space and Asset Management ensures that the University has the right amount of space to carry out its business efficiently and cost effectively. The three areas of Space and Asset Management are:
- Space management: carries out rigorous reviews of spatial allocations on behalf of all University departments, both academic and support. We are also able to review spatial needs at institutional level, developing sustainable models for the future size, quality and location of the estate and using sector wide tools developed by HEFCE and AUDE. Space management has a particular responsibility for Estates data quality, including the CAD master drawings library. Space management leads on the development of spatial standards for University teaching, research and ancillary activities.
- Asset management: manages the University property portfolio. Scope of work includes property transactions, landlord/tenant relations, ratings assessments and records of NHS properties.
- Learning facilities management: is responsible for the operational management of central teaching spaces and for the provision of audiovisual support across University space.
