The Estate Management Division at the University of Cambridge is a multi-disciplinary organisation responsible for the development, management and maintenance of the University estate.
Adoddle is a cloud-based collaboration platform . Together, this relationship will establish Adoddle as the pivotal Common Data Environment for the University of Cambridge and allow project teams to realise a global connection with the most up-to-date information in real-time, directly from the Adoddle Cloud Model Server.
Chris Hinton, Technology and Innovation Lead, Estate Management, University of Cambridge said: “Our challenge within a diverse estate is to structure data and define assets to clear and industry recognised standards. The procurement of Adoddle as our Common Data Environment is the foundation for this and our vision of a digitally enabled estate.”
The non-residential estate is valued at £2.7 billion (Insurance Replacement Cost) and its broad and complex nature presents many demanding challenges. Some buildings are 800 years old, Grade I Listed and protected by English Heritage, whilst others are new with highly sustainable building fabrics and buildings management systems.
The capital development pipeline is £4.7 billion. The current building programme has committed funding of £640 million and provides a rich mix of activities that utilise best practice ‘risk-averse’ methods of planning, design, development and construction.
