Estates and Facilities



​​The Estates and Facilites Department incorporates the previously independant Estates Services and Facilities Management departments. For the time being Customers will see little difference in our service delivery as we move forward with the integration of the two units. However, I am determined that our outlook will be "not just business as usual", but that we listen to the wider Cardiff Metropolitan University community and focus on the support of our core business strategies and to develop a new and exciting service delivery vehicle; capable of responding to the ever changing needs of the University positively and professionally.​


Our mission is to work closely with our customers to:

  • Ensure that accomodation and facilities are provided which enable Cardiff Metropolitan University to deliver its strategic and operational objectives

  • Promote sustainability in all we do

  • Provide a quality and responsive service which we will continuously seek to improve

  • Provide a central source of expertise and support on Estates and Facilities related matters to Cardiff Metropolitan University as a whole


We believe our services should demonstrate the following core values:

  • Delivery of a quality service and the adoption of best practice standards

  • Development of team working and collaborative partnerships

  • Offer flexible ways for all stakeholders to access our services

  • Sustainability shall be embedded in all that we do

  • Facilitate solutions to diverse problems which involve people from different parts of the organisation

  • Support and respect each other, all customers and stakeholders

  • ​Challenge the status quo; use of novel and creative approaches to enhance Estates and Facilities related solutions and services ​
