We monitor service levels, ensuring that we deliver these safely, to high quality, and in a timely manner to meet the University’s operational needs. Our teams are multi-disciplined with colleagues drawn from across surveying, engineering, architecture and facilities management. This creates a fantastic learning environment for our Apprentices, who also benefit from the continual opportunity to learn from different colleagues.
