Estates & Facilities Management - striving for excellence
Achieving excellence by developing, maintaining and investing in our world-class University with vision, purpose and pride.
The 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.
Transforming our public spaces
We're working with Sheffield City Council to transform public spaces around the city campus.
There'll be new and improved crossings on Western Bank and Upper Hanover Street, pedestrianisation of a number of streets, new cycle routes, lots more trees and plants and some great integrated public art.
The transforming our public spaces project is part of our Campus Masterplan.
