All Capital Projects, whether new-build or refurbishment schemes, are undertaken on behalf of the University by the Estate Development Section of Estate Management.
The revelant teams within the Estate Development Section are:
This group comprises building professionals from various disciplines who undertake, in the role of Project Manager (PM), the delivery of allocated projects with a value generally in excess of £2M. PMs take responsibility for the management of their schemes from inception to physical and financial completion. For each scheme they will commission the Consultant resources needed to develop the design, specification and cost estimates, lead the briefing process with the User Department, direct the project team in all matters related to the invitation and award of the building contract, and generally manage the interface between the University and the Project Team, ensuring compliance with University procedures and reporting as appropriate. PM's are supported by a Services Engineer who provides specialist advice with respect to the design of the mechanical and electrical services content of projects.
This group also comprises building professionals who manage smaller projects – generally schemes valued at less than £2M – in a similar manner to those managed by the Major Projects group.
In addition, the Minor Works group includes building professionals (Architects and Services Engineers) who undertake the design development for their particular elements of smaller projects, and commission Consultant resources for the design of the remaining elements, and subsequently manage the implementation of the works.
This group comprises Architects who analyse the space requirements of User Departments prior to the schemes being delegated to the Major Projects or Minor Works groups for implementation. The space analysts provide information for consideration by the University’s Space Management Advisory Group. For further details please see Space Management
