University of York

Since 2007, Faithful+Gould has been supporting the University of York's Estates Development Team with professional consultancy services applying both our local knowledge developed through the delivery of University of York projects together with the ability to channel our wealth of experience in the higher education sector.

In 2014, following a competitive tender process, Faithful+Gould was appointed as the University's single service provider of cost management and employer's agent services and have since continued to be an extension of the Estates Development team, working in partnership with the University and its key stakeholders.

Having this collaborative approach and long term commitment has allowed us to add real value to the University's programme of work resulting in social, economic and environmental rewards. In addition to our core services the University has been able to draw on our vast internal and external resource pool together with our established supply chain design partners utilising national framework delivery vehicles such as GPS and Scape. This project management approach has allowed the university to fast track and efficiently appoint multi-disciplinary design teams with the relevant experience and expertise to deliver challenging projects with a quality outcome.

We have successfully delivered a variety of commissions covering both project and non-project related services including:

  • Major capital and infrastructure projects on Heslington East and Heslington West campuses
  • Minor projects including backlog maintenance and summer refurbishment projects
  • Building surveying and access reviews
  • Multi-disciplinary design and project management services
  • Life cycle costing
  • Access simulation
