Estates and Facilities at the University of Huddersfield
This is an exciting time to be joining this award-winning Estates and Facilities Service, having an operational budget of over £13 million per annum. Since 2015, four significant brand-new buildings have been constructed, as well as two major refurbishments – all delivered with BIM for integration within Planon. Furthermore, permission has recently been granted for the first 10,000m2 building of our new National Health Innovation Campus, which will eventually provide over 75,000m2 of exemplary specialist clinical teaching facilities, world leading research facilities, public facing clinics and co-located public and private sector partners. This will bring the total University area to over 200,000 m2.
The Digital Systems and Information Team
The Digital Systems and Information Team manages and supports all the hardware and software used by the Estates and Facilities Service to deliver our first-class campus. In addition to the CAFM system (Planon), these include electronic security (Milestone CCTV, SiPass access control and Xellip intercoms) Trend building management, Kelio time and attendance, Systemslink utility metering, EPOS and payments (catering), Autodesk drawing tools, desktop and laptop PCs and mobile devices. The team also has a close working relationship with the central IT service which provides the University-wide infrastructure and sets the policies for IT provision.
A major expansion of the capabilities and usage of our Planon system is being planned, including increased focus on structured asset and space management leading to more effective maintenance regimes, space planning, and a vision for BIM to become increasingly embedded in the operations of the Estate.
