Event description

Description

Join us for the Education Estates and Facilities Conference where leading experts will discuss how to tackle the infrastructure challenges facing the sector, from primary to post graduate. Understand the evolving role of the facilities manager, see how technology and data analysis can enhance the estate and identify areas in need of improvement and plan ahead to anticipate changes in funding and set appropriate spending priorities.

In February 2017, a National Audit Office report concluded that school buildings in England would need £6.7 billion of capital investment to return them to a “satisfactory condition”. With 60% of the estate built before 1976, the NAO estimates that the cost of maintaining school buildings and facilities will double by 2021.

Some of our speakers for the full day include:

  • Rachel Stephenson, Programme Director for Priority School Building Programme, Education Funding Agency
  • David Oldham, Director of Capital Developments, Edge Hill University
  • Sue Holmes, Association of University Directors of Estates
  • Jayne Townsend, Chair of Education SIG, The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM)

Some topics of discussion covered by our speakers will include:

  • Planning for the Future: Schools, Colleges, Universities
  • Address the condition needs of the schools most in need of urgent repair
  • A macro view of HE income and expenditure and where facilities management sits within this
  • Engaging academic and student communities to deliver formal and informal learning spaces
