Each year the Division of Facilities Management (DFM) provides the Capital Improvement Report which summaries the capital works delivered across Charles Sturt University. The current Capital Plan sees us transition from predominantly a new build focus (strongly supported by Government Grants funding) to a more refurbishment and adaptive reuse focus.
Historically there have been some fabulous transformations of old and existing spaces into new generation learning spaces and we look forward to continuing this work in coming years.
We trust you will enjoy these publications and the summary of the capital works that have been delivered within CSU. Further detailed information for each of these projects is available on request.
The 2019 Capital Works Project Summary highlights those major projects completed during the calendar year, with many more still in the delivery phase. While the overall project listing is not as extensive in terms of previous years, the annual expenditure has increased in line with the Capital Plan allocation.
Student and Campus amenity was significantly improved with extensive works in our student residences and external facilities. The brand refresh has created some significant opportunities for all our capital projects and our design teams have relished the challenge of incorporating the brand elements into our refurbishments and new buildings. Our commitment to sustainability has strengthened and Learning and Teaching space improvements have continued.
The summary of the 2018 Capital Works Projects delivered by the Division of Facilities Management continues to report the trend established in 2017 where we saw an increased number of smaller projects.
Overall we completed in excess of 100 jobs for a total Capital expenditure of approximately $50million for the year, which was less than initially planned.
Our focus in this area will continue to be strong for the next few years as we consolidate and improve our ageing building stock. We trust that you will enjoy this publication and summary of the capital works that have been delivered for 2017.
The 2016 Capital Works Improvement Report highlights the depth and breadth of the Capital Improvements undertaken which is now characterised by a higher number of smaller improvements that we have seen in the past.
We trust that you will enjoy this publication and summary of the capital works that have been delivered for 2016.
The 2015–2019 Capital Plan is well under-way which sees us transition from predominantly a new build focus (strongly supported by Government Grants (funding) to a more refurbishment and adaptive reuse focus.
This transition places more emphasis on analysis and review of existing facilities and overlaying new Learning and Teaching directions.
Since this date DFM has continued to deliver strategic and priority projects for Charles Sturt University students and staff across a range of locations.
Over the past 5 years approximately $250 million worth of projects have been delivered and this publication provides a brief snapshot of the major projects completed in 2010 and 2011.
