      Estates, Facilities and Equipment

      We're putting our buildings and facilities to use to support the effort to combat Covid-19.

      Campus lends a helping hand

      In this time of crisis, everyone has a part to play – and our estate, facilities and equipment are no exception.

      Director of Estates and Facilities, Iain Garfield, co-ordinates our efforts. He's making University facilities available to support our vital NHS frontline workers.

      "Newcastle University is a vast and complex organisation", says Iain. "Under normal circumstances, we're the size of a small town. We have some 28,500 students and 6,200 staff on and around our campus on a daily basis."

      Unleashing the potential of our buildings and facilities

      "Since the country went into lockdown, the majority of our students have gone home. Everyone other than essential welfare, security and maintenance staff are working remotely. So our campus is considerably quieter.

      "What that means is that there is enormous potential to put our buildings and facilities to good use. We can support the effort to combat Covid-19. I'm incredibly proud of the colleagues who are helping me to ensure we can do so in a safe and timely manner."

      More ways our buildings, facilities and estates teams are contributing

      3. We're putting our technical facilities to good use manufacturing PPE for health workers and parts for ventilators
      4. Our maintenance team and contractors have offered to provide emergency cover for the team at the Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI).
