Space Management is an important strategic and operational activity. It provides an essential role in building a balanced, competitive and sustainable University.
The key aim of Space Management and Design is to effectively manage a dynamic and limited resource in order to support academic activity while minimizing cost and achieving efficient design, planning and use of the University's space.
The Space Management and Design Team provide a professional support service to the University with a responsibility to allocate space across the University. This service includes space planning, move management, space auditing, space data management and reporting.
Whether there is a requirement for additional space or the reconfiguration of existing space, change of occupancy or vacation of space, the Space team can assist.
The Space Management Policy by the University's Space Management Group (SMG) chaired by Pro VC Neil Ward demonstrates that the University is committed to effective space utilisation, providing a framework from which space is allocated, reconfigured and vacated.
It is very important that all space related issues are communicated to the Space Management and Design Team within the Estates and Buildings Division.
