UCL Estates is responsible for managing all building
works or "projects" at UCL. Projects may be managed by one or
more of a number of sections within the Division. This page gives a
link to information on current projects and sets out the way projects are
allocated together with contact points.
Information about major building projects which are either agreed by UCL
and in the design stages or are in construction is provided by the
Transforming UCL website. This gives the list of the projects
with the location, a brief description, the name of the UCL Estates contact and
the names of any outside consultants. For projects under construction the
contractors names are also given. The information will be updated on a six-weekly
basis. For projects in construction there will also be a board or boards
on the perimeter of the works giving contacts in case of problems or emergencies.
To initiate a project please log in to the Project
Request form using your UCL
username and password and send the details of your proposal or advice
required. If you contact us by telephone, the member of staff concerned
will log the details of your proposal. In either case, the request will
be discussed at the next meeting following which the appropriate manager
will revert to you promptly.
use the online form to request advice concerning the feasibility
and costs of adjustments and alterations to improve the accessibility
of buildings and facilities. UCL Estates is committed
to improving access for all people with disabilities who study
at, work at and visit UCL.
The Director and four members of the Division's senior management group meet
at least fortnightly to allocate new projects to particular sections/individuals
and review ongoing schemes. Procedures now in place will involve requests for
the alteration, refurbishment and allocation of space being received by this
group before work commences.
Substantial capital projects involving alterations, new buildings or extensions
and schemes involving or consisting of the acquisition of property will normally
be dealt with by the project management group or property management group.
Minor works and smaller scale alterations are normally dealt with by our
in-house design team. For the provision, fixing and removal of door signs
please see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/estates/projects/internal-signage.
