The Master Plan ~ An IntroductionJuly 2010

UCL ESTATES & FACILITIES


  • This is a vital piece of work designed to inform and enable the UCL Estate to best support the University’s academic mission over the next 10 – 15 years through the efficient and effective use of its built space, provide integrity and coherence to the campus and integrate it into the local urban fabric.

  • The success of the project depends upon the co-operation of us all - academics, students and support staff – with the Master Planning team. We will have failed if we do not buy into the process and feel a sense of ownership in the outcomes. It is our future.

The master planners
The Master Planners the UCL Estate to best support the University’s academic mission over the next 10 – 15 years through the efficient and effective use of its built space, provide integrity and coherence to the campus and integrate it into the local urban fabric.

  • Following due process, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, architects and planners, has been appointed as Master Planners.

  • They have a wealth of experience working with public sector (including higher educational) and commercial clients. One of their first commissions was with the Coin Street Community Builders working to regenerate the South Bank against a proposal to redevelop the area by a huge commercial developer.

  • Their team includes –

    - Space Planners FiD to take forward the findings of the AMA report.

    - Montagu Evans to advise on planning and development issues.

    - WSP to advise on energy and environmental issues.

UCL ESTATES & FACILITIES


Our Bloomsbury Campus forms part of the largest University campus sites in Europe. Yet it is hardly visible to the general public.

UCL is the largest employer in the London Borough of Camden yet its existence is barely recognised in literature promoting the Borough – a major opportunity for them and us.

The campus has to work more efficiently and effectively to support the work of the University. The Space Utilisation Study points to many areas of usage and practice where improvements can be made – see this and the next slide.

There are opportunities to improve the student experience and the utilisation of key areas such as the lower refectory. Can there be a cross-over with the function of meeting spaces and social learning spaces?

  • The Master Planning team are already hard at work getting to understand the campus through guided visits and consultation.

  • They have access to our extensive database of drawings, surveys and audits and are already mapping their analyses. Preliminary examples are given on the next three slides.

  • They also have access to previous studies and Master Plans.

  • An examination of the systems and support functions play a vital part of the process. Consultation with EFD Energy, Maintenance and Domestic Services staff is already under way.

  • Sustainability and environmental issues too play a vital part. Consultation is under way.

outcomes July 2010 – March 2011. reporting

  • The Master Planners are briefed to challenge the way we use the Estate.

  • Much of the current practice may only need fine-tuning

  • Some change will be radical.

  • There will be empowerment through change.

  • There will be proposals that can be realised early to the benefit of all.

    The following slides set out some possibilities.

UCL ESTATES & FACILITIES


We will be seeking to work closely with the London Borough of Camden to soften the boundaries between the University and its environs.

One idea is to make Gordon Street more pedestrian friendly, even closing it on occasions for parties and festivals – such as the Lunch on the Bridge event on London Bridge.

With appropriate furniture and good Wi-Fi the cloisters could be transformed.

This site has been vacant since the Second World War. The Master Plan will identify its long term strategic importance and look at how best it can be utilised in the short term.
