The University was seeking to modernise and rationalise the Faculty of Engineering estate (occupying approx. 60,000m2) as well as respond to significant planned growth.

Bond Bryan were appointed to provide a 10-15 year route map for transforming the estate to meet these challenges, targeting:

- Demand led space modelling, providing an efficient and flexible state
- Improved condition of the estate
- World class teaching research facilities
- A realistic phased delivery plan that ensured continuity of provision
- Reduced carbon levels to meet HEFCE and University targets

Working closely with the Estates and Faculty teams, Bond Bryan started with a high-level-visioning workshop to identify and prioritise the key issues and objectives.  Using examples of innovative practice from around the world to help stimulate the discussions, a key focus for this exercise was exploring with the University how future changes to educational delivery might impact on the type and amount of space required.

Alongside this work, we undertook detailed space needs analysis using current and projected teaching, research and staff numbers modelling a range of possible growth scenarios in order to test the potential implications on the space needs over the next 15 years.  

From this thorough understanding of the Faculty’s needs, we led the University through a diverse range of development options, undertaking qualitative and quantitative appraisals to identify a preferred direction.  Working alongside the Estates Team and Project Managers, we assisted in developing a phased delivery programme, critically demonstrating how the framework could meet needs of the rapidly growing faculty. 

The output of the study was a strategy that would see the Faculty accommodate 110% growth in teaching and research, with just a 60% increase in the gross internal floor area.

Bond Bryan have subsequently been delighted to have been commissioned to design a number of the projects identified by the development framework; completing the first phases of this strategy with a series of refurbishment and new build projects, with other phases on site or in the design stages.
