Space is a strategic resource
Its effective management is a means of tackling a wide range of issues facing universities and colleges in the currently challenging funding and competitive climate.
The hallmarks of effective space management at this level include:
- Application of strategic briefing techniques to identify and reconcile stakeholder requirements which can often be in conflict
- A robust space modelling process which allows future needs to be assessed with skill and care and which allows decisions to be made with confidence
- An understanding of physical capacities, adjacencies and design requirements and their compatibility with current and future parts of the property portfolio
Our briefing tools and facilitation process help clients to identify and evaluate their requirements before embarking on major projects and provide a critical foundation for business cases and project planning. We use our depth of understanding of the education sector and its recurring space issues to connect the teaching and research activities of our clients with their major property challenges.
In so doing, we provide a range of solutions for academic departments and property professionals alike to develop their understanding of critical priorities, realistic needs and major risks.
