  • In terms of Investment Planning for the estate it’s critical that we maintain short and long-term investment planning to maintain building asset functionality and safe condition. This enables us to target Backlog Investment and financial resources where they are most needed, and rectify any potential breaches of emerging statutory legislation.

    Last year MMU approved the framework for a Risk-based Estate Maintenance Strategy which will move us away from a reactive approach to this important area to a planned preventative approach. The strategy has been allocated a delivery fund of £20m over the next 5-6 years.
  • The brand new Benzie Building combined with the historical Grosvenor Building provides an ambitious inter-connected art & design complex, featuring an impressive array of digital and technical workshops, gallery spaces, numerous studios, a café area and a communal roof terrace. Benzie is one of three buildings that make up the School of Art. Grosvenor Building, the original school of art, embraces the history and traditions that are at the heart of the School and is home to numerous studios and a public gallery. Both buildings are connected by the recently refurbished Chatham Building which has been transformed beyond recognition as part of a £34m investment programme. Alongside the transformation of the School of Art buildings and spaces, the project included refurbishment of our workshops and the purchase of £3/4m of new equipment.
  • MMU Cheshire was first in the process of campus consolidation with the phased transfer of all study programmes over the academic years 2009/10 and 2010/11. This summer we are undertaking a significant programme of investment in the legacy estate.
