The Asset Digitisation Programme aims to:

  • Improve the quality, consistency and reliability of the information that we hold about the assets (lifts, boilers, fire extinguishers) in the University of Cambridge buildings
  • Increase the transparency and visibility of the data by providing full access to this information to building managers so they can better manage the spaces they look after
  • Review and reset the condition of each building by identifying outstanding or persistent maintenance issues and developing plans to tackle these
  • Work together with those who manage and work in each building to produce new Planned and Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedules individually designed to respond to building requirements and meet the needs of building users
  • Better control and co-ordinate future estate maintenance activity and projects in each building

It will develop a clear picture of how our buildings operate through the recording and collation of accurate data about building assets and systems. This information will be stored and managed digitally to deliver a range of benefits and give building managers and administrators transparent, consistent and reliable data regarding the assets in their buildings, so that they can better manage the spaces they look after.

A pilot phase focused on 20 buildings, including the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Zoology building, Electrical Engineering Division building, and the Chemistry of Health building, has been completed.

The team will survey all the remaining buildings in the University estate during the first half of 2024 and will work with the Departmental Administrators and Building Managers for each building to agree an approach and schedule that works for them.
