LCMB guide for higher education estate management

LCMB guide for higher education estate management

Posted on 13th April 2017

Pathfinder LCMB offer building performance expertise. Their work with a number of universities has shown that Estates Managers are often expected to manage increasingly complex estate operations in laboratories and high tech facilities.  At the same time, safety and compliance requirements are becoming ever more challenging. They also have to factor in a range of different student experience requirements.

LCMB could not find a single guide that provides UK universities with a structured framework for approaching these pressures, so they’ve written their own. The guide takes estate managers through a four steps process to assess, measure, prioritise and take action.

The guide is designed as an estates management and transformation framework to help UK universities;

  • Have more productive, satisfied students and staff
  • Enhance their reputation, and be more impressive in a competitive environment
  • Become more cost and energy efficient
  • Get ready for future demands

Estates professionals at King’s College London and University of the Arts London have praised the guide: “excellent … succinct, challenging and useful”, and Sustainability West Midlands say: “We commend LCMB! …functional and easy to follow, diagrammatic and challenging”.”
