Estates covers a wide range of various tasks that can be both reactive and planned. Our team consists of the Maintenance Team, Project Managers, Infrastructure and Energy, each helping to maintain and improve the operational running of the University.



The best way to explain infrastructure is that it is all of the unseen systems, equipment and appliances that keep the University running effectively. This includes gas and water pipework, power supplies and much more.


Our aim is to implement our Energy Management Strategy as well as leading both practical projects and behavioural change programs.
