Estates & Facilities Management - Achieving excellence

Achieving excellence by developing, maintaining and investing in our World-Class University with vision, purpose and pride.

Keith Lilley, Dirctor of Estates & Facilities ManagementThe Estates and Facilities Management at the University of Sheffield are responsible for maintaining the University's buildings and gardens, managing its property and facilities and procuring new buildings.

The University's estate contains a wide and varied range of properties which understandably present their own challenges. Some, such as the Arts Tower, are of great architectural importance and must be preserved as part of our national heritage, whilst others such as the award winning Information Commons, are modern and sophisticated in their design and servicing.

Our staff will continue to strive for excellence in everything they put their hand to. The integration of these services does provide a unique opportunity to improve and build on the firm foundations that have been achieved over many years.

"This is a fantastic development which will transform the campus environment and support the University’s links with the city centre. The improvements, including the pedestrianised streets, will make the campus much easier and safer for our staff and students to get around and better connect the University with the city.

“We want to encourage the people of Sheffield to enjoy and use our campus whether it’s to have lunch in one of our cafes, cycle through the campus area up to Weston Park, or just enjoy sitting and relaxing in one of the new greener, safer places that will be created through this development.”

- Keith Lilley, Director of Estates and Facilities Management

“I am very proud of The Diamond building development. Twelve Architects has worked tirelessly to bring forward what I believe will be both a fantastic addition to the University estate and Higher Education as a whole.

Twelve has interpreted our vision and taken the final scheme so much further than we had hoped with a truly world class facility to compliment the excellence of the University’s academic endeavour.

The Diamond is the single largest academic project the University has undertaken, and is a truly unique and inspiring facility.”  - Keith Lilley, Director of Estates and Facilities Management.
