Event description

Description

Improving estate efficiency without compromising good design

Sharing approaches for an effective and efficient estate, ensuring the everyday projects deliver under financial pressure using good quality design. We will consider estate optimisation and the design of teaching, learning and support space, making best use of space to ensure an affordable and efficient estate.

Speakers

  • Solent University – Liz Hudswell and Laure Potter: Sink or Swim. The Solent Maritime Relocation Project

  • Bristol University – Matt Fulford: Satisfaction and savings (evaluation of an activity-based work programme)

  • Bournemouth University – Andy Scott: Space Matters? Space Quantity v Space Quality in HE

  • AECOM – Gorana Banic - Masterplanning for Estate Efficiency

What will attendees take away from this event?

With Universities under more financial pressure than ever before, it is essential that the estate is sized as efficiently as possible. Good design is essential to achieve this. Through a mix of case studies attendees take away a variety of approaches to improving design and space utilisation in a number of settings within Universities. This will include teaching space and office accommodation for both academic and professional services staff.

What is unique about this event?

This shines the spotlight on the importance of the small but important projects, which can have a big impact, rather than the large new build iconic projects which dominate the headlines.
