Estates Strategy

October 12th, 2016

The University has been recognised for the quality of its estate overall, its buildings and its commitment to sustainability – attracting a number of prestigious awards and accolades over the period 2010-2015.

We know the architecture, landscape and facilities we provide are important to students and staff – it’s part of our wider offer that attracts and retains the very best people here at The University of Nottingham and in 2015, it was placed 1st in the University of Indonesia’s Global Green Metric as the most sustainable university in the world for the fourth year since 2010.

Our refreshed strategy aims to provide a long term development and management plan for the estate (both UK and international campuses) which underpins the University’s Global Strategy 2020. It outlines aims, objectives and performance assessment for the Estates Office in the next ten years, whilst building flexibility and agility to enable The University to respond effectively in a fast changing higher education environment.

Delivering a coherent estate strategy means listening to the needs of our customers to achieve the University’s objectives. We work closely with each of the five faculties to develop and deliver investment that meets their needs in terms of teaching and research. We also work collaboratively with key services to ensure the supporting infrastructure for study-space, accommodation, libraries, sport and catering are met.

Over the next five to ten year period, the estate will continue to remodel its teaching and learning spaces and to provide the right facilities for world class research. Alongside this, we will continue to further enhance Nottingham’s unparalleled parkland campuses; provide sector leading Library and social learning spaces; Acquire land to support further development and consolidation of our campuses; refresh our long-term (10 years +) master plans for all our campuses.

Alongside the most recent developments, such as the Carbon Neutral Laboratory and the David Ross Sports Village, over the period up to 2020 we will deliver the following projects with agility to respond to new opportunities:

  • Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre extension
  • Teaching Building
  • Centre for Biomolecular Sciences Phase 3 and 4
  • New Health Centre
  • Portland Building Remodelling
  • Campus-wide Arboretum
  • Ingenuity Centre
  • Advanced Manufacturing Building
  • G-ERA Building
  • National Centre for Dairy Research
  • North Laboratory Re-modelling
