Space Management Group: phase two reports
Effective space management in universities and colleges can both save money and bring benefits for students and staff. The UK Higher Education Space Management Group (SMG) aims to provide tools to help HEIs manage their space in an efficient and sustainable way that meets their pedagogic, research and support needs.
The following outputs from the second phase are available on the SMG web-site:
2006/09 Promoting space efficiency in building design. This publication aims to identify which aspects of building design contribute most to optimum space efficiency. It includes 15 case studies of recent refurbishment, expansion, upgrading and new builds in higher education institutions.
2006/10 Impact on space of future changes in higher education. This report approaches space use from the perspective of how academic activity might change in the medium term. It will be of interest to academics and managers who are seeking a fit between their changing operations and the physical infrastructure.
The remaining five reports from Phase two of the project were published in September 2006.
