Space Standards Guidelines
These Space Standards are intended for new buildings such as UCL East but should be seen as applicable for the refurbishment of buildings in the core campus going forward.
A Space Standards Policy is commonly used by similar institutions to define the framework by which all space should be allocated which will improve space efficiency and help to deliver the Estate Strategy and other Master Development Plans.
UCL has a historic Estate with many new buildings also coming online, so space standards have to deal with existing buildings as well as being able to set templates for new buildings.
The guidance set out here is intended for new buildings such as UCL East but should be seen as applicable for the refurbishment of buildings in the core campus going forward. When looking to design new, or allocate existing space the following standards should be used as a guide to determine the extent of both cellular and open plan spaces. Particular attention should be paid to these where there is the option to create the spaces as new (i.e. construct spaces, rather than allocate an existing space).
The guide sets out the following:
- General Principles
- Staff Allocations
- Space Standards
- Configuration Guidelines
