  • Overview

With student numbers growing by 44% in the last 10 years, demand for energy outputs increases and expanding/redeveloping HE Estates & Facilities become institutional priorities. What should be considered when expanding to meet demand? Recent statistics demonstrate consistent years of considerable growth for higher education estates and facilities; physical HE infrastructure in the UK amounts to more than 22,000,000msq. and generate an average of £28 billion per year. Is this sustainable?

This conference will bring together professionals from across HE, energy, digital, construction and procurement to discuss and develop strategies for low-carbon facilities that assist innovative research, accommodate growing student numbers and support mental and physical wellbeing on campus. Key areas of focus for the event are:

How HE estates and facilities can become energy efficient - reducing the running costs and decreasing the carbon footprint of institutes.
Ways in which HE estates and facilities can support student wellbeing initiatives on campus.
Developing strategies for increasing revenue income through estates and facilities.

Venue

The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Construction of The Bridgewater Hall commenced on 22 March 1993, but the idea of a new concert hall for Manchester dates back to the reconstruction of the Free Trade Hall in the 1950s after wartime bomb damage. The Free Trade Hall was home to the city’s famous Hallé orchestra and also hosted rock and pop concerts. However, despite holding great public affection, the 1850s Free Trade Hall was ill-equipped to respond to the rising standards of service and acoustic excellence demanded by performers and audiences.
