Infrastructure Survey 2009
Group of Eight (NJ1)
In 2008 the Group of Eight (Go8) released a first report on the state of its buildings and infrastructure, based on a survey undertaken in 2007. A further survey was undertaken in 2009, updating some information about the assessed quality, value and condition of buildings and use of space. It also collated data related to aspects of the estate not previously explored, including student accommodation, energy and other environmental issues and initiatives. Some of these data are provisional: data sources are not yet well developed, and definitions and classifications are being reviewed for some of these topics. This is particularly so of the data related to space management and environmental issues including carbon measurement and reduction strategies, where further work is being done on both strategies and measurement/data issues. Where appropriate, the survey has used Tertiary Education Facilities Management Association (TEFMA) definitions and methodology. As for the previous survey, two reports from the survey data are being prepared. This summary presents aggregates across the Go8. The second report contains data about each member university. It is confidential, and has limited availability. Appended are: (1) Glossary of Terminology and Definitions; (2) Survey definitions; and (3) Go8 survey form 2009. (Contains 3 figures, 7 tables, and 2 footnotes.)
