The over-riding aim of the Facilities Strategy is to ensure the preservation and enhancement of a functional and attractive working, learning and living environment for staff, students and visitors. In addressing the future management, development, maintenance and renewal of the campus buildings and infrastructure, the Facilities Strategy seeks to ensure that the Campus exhibits an attractive image, with continuity and congeniality.
The Facilities Strategy encompasses a wide range of activities other than capital projects and reflects the need for radically different approaches to managing the University assets on a holistic basis. This includes a move from reactive to risk assessed planned maintenance and application of best practice techniques on life cycle management and value engineering. This philosophy also extends to recognising the environmental impact through implementing policies designed to achieve sustainability in products, recycling and other environmentally conscious policies such as transportation and traffic management.
