Shortlisted for the £1bn estates’ strategy, to work up a framework which would translate the University’s 2026 strategy into a deliverable estates plan. The university launched its 2026 Strategy in April 2016, laying out “visions and aspirations” for the next decade of growth. The strategy outlined an aim for the university to be world-leading in specific research areas, such as advanced materials, infectious disease and personalised health. Within our tender, we advised on the most efficient use of the University’s central campus in Liverpool, including whether to demolish, refurbish or develop new-build facilities.
