Cardiff is internationally recognised as being among the very top tier of Britain’s research intensive universities and is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading Universities. The University exists to create and share knowledge and to educate for the benefit of all. The University has over 6200 postgraduate students, about 23% of the total; research is practised in each of its 28 schools; and at any one time there are more than 1000 research contracts in operation. The vast majority of the University’s academic staff are working in areas that are acknowledged by independent assessors as being of national and international significance. Such research earns grants and investments totalling many tens of millions of pounds each year and attracts to Cardiff top researchers from around the world.
In order to build on this enviable track record and to further its role as an internationally excellent research centre, Cardiff University is about to embark on the development and preparation of a Strategic Master plan to help the University strengthen its position as a world-class, research-intensive higher education organisation within the City of Cardiff capable of attracting internationally renowned academic staff and high quality students.
The aim of the masterplan is to provide context in which the University is to develop over the next 10 years, identifying individual projects and programmes of work (including refurbishment, relocation and new build). The masterplan is required to be seen as the blueprint for the future and include concept designs for development and design within which individual projects can move forward.
The University now wish to appoint the specialist team working closely with the universities appointed project manager to produce a detailed, practical and realistic master plan that articulates the University’s aspirations in terms of the quantum and quality of the proposed development/s and the ambitious programme for implementation. The master plan must be fit for purpose and all proposals must be tested against the universities way forward document and strategic direction.
The specialist team must be able to demonstrate previous experience in successfully delivering a similar scale project for a similar size client either in the Higher Education Sector, the public sector or the private sector. The specialist team must also demonstrate that they have experience in working closely as an integrated team and delivering a successful similar scale project within the timescales set.
