UAL has an incredibly diverse estate spanning Central and Greater London and includes a broad range of property types encompassing academic, teaching, research, commercial, social, hospitality, residential and public realm spaces. The property portfolio is made up of 16 academic sites and 13 student residences hubs with buildings ranging from listed historic buildings to new state of the art facilities. This dynamic and diverse mix in one the world’s leading cities gives an exciting and challenging proposition to the UAL Estates department. The Estates department is currently undertaking an unprecedented estate transformation programme. Following the success of UAL’s relocation of Central Saint Martins as the centrepiece of the King’s Cross regeneration scheme, we are proposing over the next 5-7 years to replace over half of the academic estate with some major developments including two buildings in Stratford and Elephant and Castle totalling circa 70,000 sq m. We will increase our portfolio of owned halls of residences by the addition of at least two halls totalling circa 800 beds and continue to maintain and adapt the remainder of the 170,000 sq m estate to meet the needs of the University for decades to come. To support the Major Capital Projects team in realising these ambitious projects, the Estates Department is now seeking to recruit a Senior Project Manager who will have focus on the delivery of the FF&E and Operational aspects of two major capital projects, initially focused on the Stratford campus for London College of Fashion and subsequently the Elephant & Castle campus for London College of Communication.
