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.

Current Projects

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.

Project Initiation

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.

Please 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.
