Estates and Facilities Services is made up of a number of key departments and teams who all report into the Director of Estates and Facilities Services.

All of our departments can be contacted by calling the Estates and Facilities Services Helpdesk (ext 2000) and then selecting the option for the service you require. See our full list of contacts (pdf). 


The Project office is the in-house team responsible for managing capital projects, refurbishment & minor works in accordance with the Estates Strategy.  Its principal aims include:

  • Improvement of the teaching & learning environment
  • Obtaining best value for money in the procurement of contracts for work
  • Complying with relevant statute, regulation and British/ European standards

Projects are developed from initial brief to completion and settling of accounts either entirely in-house, or with the assistance of professional consultants appointed according to the requirements of each scheme. The Projects department co-ordinates consultant’s and contractor’s work to ensure compliance with requirements, best value for money and least impact upon the ongoing operation of the University.
