Space Management: Review of Space Norms

This study by Kilner Planning and London Economics researches the scope for providing updated space norms for the higher education (HE) sector.

It sets out a method using principles similar to those underpinning space norms to calculate indicative space needs based on HEI's own particular profiles of academic activity and methods of delivery.

This approach, for which a framework is provided, is likely to be of most interest to HEI's, which would like to better understand the capacity of their estates; to start from first principles in getting an insight into what type and how much space may be needed; and to model the effect of changes in student and staff numbers.
