Infrastructure and Property Group

We're a team of trained specialists providing facilities management and support across all campuses. We're responsible for the operational management of Deakin's existing infrastructure as well as the strategic planning for new building projects.

Our focus

We aim to deliver an outstanding environment for education and research that meets the needs of the University, our students, staff and partners.

Our services

Strategic planning – a long-term view

We consider the long-term development of each campus, preparing master plans that support Deakin's strategic goals and growth targets.

The Campus Infrastructure and Utilisation Plan, which is updated annually, provides a summary of Deakin’s infrastructure needs today and into the future.

We are responsible for operational management of Deakin’s infrastructure and related services through the delivery of this plan. In addition, we lead the management of all real-estate acquisitions and disposals, leasing and town planning.

Ensuring peak campus performance

We deliver an industry-leading operations and maintenance plan that guides the management of existing buildings and infrastructure. Delivery of this plan ensures ongoing efficient and safe operations.

We manage over 230 buildings across 330,000m2. Our team completes more than 18,000 reactive and unscheduled maintenance jobs per year in addition to planned works undertaken as part of our scheduled maintenance program.

Building Deakin’s future

We manage the design and delivery of new buildings and facilities that meet the university's long term needs. 

Several major building projects are currently underway across Deakin’s campuses.

Efficiently managing space

We manage Deakin's space needs by analysing current space use and modelling future requirements. We provide guidance in preliminary discussions on driving the development of new spaces, including teaching spaces.

We also maintain the university's timetabling system and manage the drawings database (including architectural and building services drawings).
