willana has successfully completed the following projects for clients.


University of Technology, Sydney

 

Willana was commissioned to undertake a 3 months project to manage  the overall Facilities information Unit of the Facilities Management Unit (FMU). The project involved updating and review of the space management database, together with the liaison with the Faculty and administrative staff.

 

The priority during the course of the project was to provide strategic input, through space analysis, for the proposed relocation and increase of accommodation space, for the Faculty of Science.

 

The project required analysis of the accommodation, full time and part time student loads and faculty requirements. A further requirement was ongoing reporting to the Director of FMU and subsequently the Vice Chancellor.

Campus Space Management

 

Willana was contracted to undertake a 2 year project for the University of Sydney. The aim was to evaluate and update existing space information on all university property. The project provided an understanding of Faculty requirements and information for strategic planning.

 

Willana was able to coordinate the audit process for over 250 buildings, involving consultation with 27 Faculties and over 250 Departments. Open and regular communication with the large numbers of staff proved essential. Vital to the projects success was a consistent, diligent process to ensure the integrity of information collected. Space surveyors were specially trained in the database use and information collection.

 

A systemic methodology was implemented to facilitate the analysis of space information, strategic planning and management of all University teaching and research facilities. Specialised reporting was made available to Faculties and Departments for the University's Annual Report. The information produced included analysis of building occupancy; identification and location of specific functions and types; development of an indicative space model; analysis of space usage against an indicative space model, accurate reporting for accommodation studies and building efficiency.
