Space data audits and surveys

It is the responsibility of Faculties and Departments to notify the Space data team of any inaccuracies in the data and any changes to the size, type, or use of space. Departments are also asked to participate in an annual audit to ensure that the records held on our Micad space management system are accurate and up to date. The space data/CAD team also carry out a number of surveys on buildings across the estate throughout the year.

  • Space survey guidelines - this document is a guide on how to complete the Space Survey using Micad, the University’s space database. [Due to an upgrade of the Micad IPR system in August 2020, new guidelines are currently being developed and will be published here]
