Background

A higher education client based in the English Midlands operates a main campus of 672 acres, with more than 30,000 students attending the university.

The estate is undergoing a large-scale, campus-wide redevelopment since the first phase of building was completed more than 120 years ago. The portfolio comprises over 200 properties of different ages, complexities, physical condition and use, including grade one and two listed properties.

The portfolio is spread across two main campus sites along with properties in surrounding areas, including

  • teaching departments, lecture theatres and offices
  • research and laboratory facilities
  • recreational and sports areas and centres
  • retail and commercial outlets
  • student accommodation.
