Since joining the University of Nottingham in 1995, Chris has brought a visionary approach to long-term integrated planning, development, maintenance and growth of the multi award-winning estates provision for the University of Nottingham (UoN), delivering a pioneering sustainability agenda, on an estate exceeding 1,300 acres.
Chris has directed on the largest number of BREEAM accredited HE schemes, including two achieving Outstanding, and one project recognised as LEED Platinum.
This leadership has enabled the University to establish itself as one of the pioneering universities in the UK to adopt and embrace sustainability as a core principle in how it operates and how it supports teaching and research.
Top 3 learnings:
1 Principles of sustainability need to be established at the beginning and applied throughout.
2 Take opportunities to integrate operational needs and teaching and research opportunities and use spaces and buildings that support teaching and research.
3 Recognise and respect how campus development should consider the local environment, local communities and the history and legacy of the area - industrial heritage.
