The School’s Estate comprises a number of buildings ranging from mid-18th Century to recent constructions. Several of the school buildings are listed and fall within two different conservation areas. Recent developments have taken place to a number of the buildings over the last several years with over £12m being spent on new build, renovation and refurbishment. Whereas the new and refurbished buildings require careful maintenance and control of the building management systems, upkeep of the other buildings relies on planned maintenance regimes and replacement of long-standing systems and fittings.
We are seeking to appoint a Project Manager (Buildings & Compliance) responsible for managing and delivering new build developments and refurbishment projects, whilst ensuring that other school-built assets are maintained from the annual maintenance budget. Health and Safety and Compliance have become key aspects of Facilities Management and the new post-holder will be expected to ensure that all Estates practices and procedures comply with current legislation and the Management of Health and Safety at Work legislation.
This exciting new standalone role is accountable directly to the School’s Bursar.
