We carry out a wide range of architectural and other studies to support the better use of space in the estate, including:

  • measurement of space utilisation in teaching spaces
  • working with departments to optimise the use of space
  • investigation of space requirements as part of the Capital Projects Process

The space requirements of User Departments are analysed prior to schemes being delegated to the Major Projects or Minor Works groups for implementation. Information is provided to the University’s Space Management Sub-Committee for consideration.  Further information is provided on the Academic and Financial Planning and Analysis website here.

We work closely with the Space data team who are responsible for the information held on the University's live space database Micad, as well as keeping an up to date record of all the CAD drawings/floor plans of the University's buildings.

We work with the Programme Board for Education Space whose mission is to improve the use and management of spaces for teaching, studying, and sitting examinations across the University.
