Event description

Description

Demands on public infrastructures are changing quickly. No longer are buildings only a base from which public services are delivered. Ongoing austerity, growing competition, and the impact of disruptive technologies and the Internet of Things is leading to growing obsolescence. Nor is design the sole responsibility of a single local institution. Governance is becoming more complex and multi-level, and finance is becoming increasingly risk based. Meanwhile, the withered local state seeks new opportunities to rationalise with other partners and the long term trend of the decentralisation of local taxation is forcing new financial directions.

Local Growth Academy; Rethinking the Estate will help senior leaders in different local anchor institutions to understand these higher level drivers, to hear about latest thinking and best practice, and what forms of support are available to work in partnership. Delegates will also hear in detail about the work of the Future Cities Catapult and how it can support local anchors help reimagine the future of a smarter place. An interactive session will challenge delegates to reimagine their estate in different ways and to reflect on first steps they may need to make to create new value.

09.30 Registration and refreshments


1000h. New Drivers and Concepts: Kevin Richardson, Local Growth Consultant, HEFCE


An introduction to the high level drivers that are differently and increasingly impacting upon the design and management of the public estate across different anchor institutions. These require leaders to reconceptualise estates beyond their primary functional purpose.


1030h The Future Cities Catapult: New Perspectives and Approaches: Gemma Ginty Urban Futures Lead, Future Cities Catapult

How are universities changing? What do new technologies mean for the way student learn and academics teach? And how are university campuses going to adapt to new technologies whilst maintaining their position as incubators for exploration and innovation? This presentation will focus on the case study of Glasgow University’s Smart Campus strategy. Focusing on the role of the user, data as a building material, the estate as a living lab for research and learning, and smarter use of existing assets. This presentation will also cover related projects where the Future Cities Catapult is having transformative impact on how we use the city.


1105h Using Data Differently: Jennifer Macdonald, Mott Macdonald

Higher Education estates owners and managers are faced with similar problems to many other sectors; the need to get greater performance out of their assets in financial, social and environmental terms while facing fast changing patterns of usage and pressures for return on investment. Organised information that informs better decision making at all levels is central to meeting this challenge. The idea of an accurate asset information model starts from BIM, and must go well beyond 3-D models or be limited to new projects. Through our Data Science proposition, we look at the value that can be obtained from analysis and visualisation of asset data models, including capturing data from existing assets both in terms of condition and use patters. By linking in to external data sources and connecting to the community of students, academics, local citizens and other institutions, even more value can be obtained and use of physical estates can be optimised.



1130h A commercial property market perspective: Dr Kevin Muldoon-Smith,
Northumbria University / R3Intelligence

Building, town and city centre use is increasingly dynamic and short-lived. In response, commercial landlords are developing agile tenancy strategies and meanwhile use alternatives to combat redundancy, obsolescence and vacancy. This session considers what the public estate can learn from this recent commercial activity - in order to increase the return of its property stock and to extend the reach of its land and buildings.



1150h One Public Estate

How can a One Public Estate approach assist participating institutions to work together to succeed with the better use of public land and property and deliver improved public services? Case studies of early successes are outlined.


1230h Lunch



1315h Existing and Changing Best Practice: TBC.

A response to the morning session setting out real world examples of current and changing best practice.


1345h The Case of Northavon: Group Task

Delegates will work in cross sectoral groups to develop proposals in response to a complex case study in the fictional city of Northavon.


1445h Reimagining the Campus through Partnership:
Caroline Chipperfield, Business Development Director, UPP Group Ltd

An overview on the value of the partnership approach in supporting universities to make the very best of their physical assets, whilst simultaneously making a step change in service provision. Participants are encouraged to think strategically about the role of the university in the neighbourhood, the opportunity for developments to create new and revitalised civic spaces. The case study of UPP’s recently-completed Garden Halls residence in Central London is used to explore its role in the local community.


1510h-1530h Get Involved! Future Cities Catapult

Practical forward opportunities for delegates to work in partnership with the Future Cities Catapult.
