New buildings come under FM management

Several new buildings around the University of Oxford estate are now in the care of the Facilities Management (FM) team.

The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages at 41 and 47 Wellington Square is the latest addition. The Faculty is one of the world’s leading centres for the study of European languages, literature and culture. Senior Facilities Manager Greg Demetriou-Swanwick is responsible for the building’s management.

Boundary Brook House, near the Old Road Campus in Headington, is also now being managed by FM. It is under the control of Toby Christensen, Implementation Manager, who oversees the process of bringing new buildings under FM management; in due course responsibility will move to a permanent Facilities Manager.

Finally, the new modular structure at the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter site, now known as the Anna Watts Building, is now under full FM management. It will be used for research and teaching by the Experimental Psychology department until a permanent replacement for the Tinbergen building is available. Ian Hope is its Facilities Manager.
