Having successfully carried out a Timetabling Process and Procedure Review for Cardiff Metropolitan University, Elaine Griffiths has provided us with the following testimonial;
“As part of the work to enhance the quality of Timetabling services to the University, ECS were invited to undertake a review of the current timetabling processes and procedures. The objective was to identify areas for improvement that would deliver timely and robust timetable data to serve a new Student Personalised Timetable service.
Ben Moreland led a comprehensive review, that involved meeting with all School and department stakeholders, which resulted in a clear set of recommendations. Clearly Ben has excellent knowledge and experience in this field. He was professional and very personable at all times during the study.
We would have no hesitation in using ECS for future work”

After recently completing the University of South Wales, Timetable Modelling project, Greg Kemp has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“Having been impressed with the way Education Space Consultancy had undertaken space utilisation survey work for the University, ESC was engaged to provide a timetable modelling service which was required to test the provision of teaching accommodation for the courses that would be delivered at one of the University’s main campuses. The modelling work incorporated significant changes to the mix of courses that would be offered at this campus and took into account plans for major redevelopment of campus buildings and remodelled teaching accommodation.
Ben Moreland provided the timetable modelling service for ESC and worked closely with the University’s Estates and Timetabling departments to collate and refine the base information required for the model. The findings were brought together in a very useful report which included a set of practical recommendations designed to achieve the alignment of activities to rooms ahead of the new academic year.
I was very pleased with the standard of service offered by Education Space Consultancy and would not hesitate to use them again for space utilisation survey and timetabling modelling services.”

Having completed the 2015/16 Teaching Space Utilisation Survey & Consultancy Report for London Business School, Rodney Ardé has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“London Business School engaged Ben and his Education Space Consultancy services for 2 week long space surveys over the last 2 academic years. Surveys were across an extended day concluding at 9:30PM Monday through Friday. The survey included all school bookable space used to support teaching and study activities. In the second survey we included library pod and open seating areas to gauge level of library space use. Ben and his team of surveyors conducted themselves with utmost professionalism and were able to conduct their rounds with minimal disruption to activities taking place in the survey spaces. Ben was on site throughout and it was very reassuring to know that he was on hand to deal with any issues that arose leaving my Space Management team to deal with the normal complexities associated with timetabling and managing room bookings.
Survey data was collated very quickly and Ben’s associated report detailing findings was informative and very useful in creating a high level executive summary to present to Senior and Executive Management groups. We required amendments to the initial report to ensure that particular emphasis was drawn to key spaces in the school and Ben was very flexible and quick to turn around these report amendments. I have no hesitation in recommending Education Space Consultancy for this type of work and will be using their services for repeat survey work over the coming academic year.

Having recently completed a Teaching Space Utilisation Survey & Consultancy Report for the University of Winchester, Julia Cradock has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“The University of Winchester engaged Education Space Consultancy to carry out our annual teaching space survey. The preparation for the survey was very thorough, and it was clear that Ben’s team were well trained to cause as little disruption as possible to the normal running of the teaching day.
The data was collated quickly and was followed shortly after by a detailed report. Ben was very responsive to any queries and happy to include additional report tables we requested. The report was well presented and extremely useful in highlighting areas for investigation. Ben’s extensive knowledge of timetabling and space utilisation was apparent throughout the process, and we would readily ask Education Space Consultancy to help us with future space surveys or other timetabling and space related consultancy.

After successfully completing the University of the West of England, Office Utilisation Survey earlier this year Pete Sutherland has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“University of the West of England engaged Education Space Consultancy to undertake an office occupancy study for three weeks to inform our Professional Services project. This was looking to identify opportunities to reduce the number of fixed desks in a future move, so involved auditing several buildings and approximately 450 staff.
Ben and his team were very professional in their approach and undertook the surveys with discretion, always remaining mindful and respectful of the occupants’ concerns. We were given regular updates informing us of progress and any issues encountered and the reports that were submitted at the end of the study were very detailed and produced very quickly. I would not hesitate to use Ben and his team again for a similar exercise or indeed for our annual teaching room surveys, as I am certain ESC would do an excellent job.

After successfully completing a Timetable Process Review for Edinburgh Napier University earlier this year, Cathy Lambert has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“Edinburgh Napier University commissioned Education Space Consultancy to undertake a review of our timetabling activities with a view to ensuring our processes, policies and systems were fit for purpose and capable of supporting our future plans to enhance both room utilisation and the quality of the student experience.
Ben Moreland understood our requirements and successfully tendered for consultancy work. He met with academic and support staff to review our current timetabling processes, practices and solutions.
Ben produced a detailed set of recommendations and summarised his findings in both a brief and full report to inform our project implementation plans. His reports were well written and met the needs of both senior staff and timetabling experts. Ben has a detailed knowledge and understand of timetabling activities across the sector which were hugely beneficial to our timetabling project. He was professional throughout his engagement with Edinburgh Napier University and I would involve Education Space Consultancy in a similar project in the future.

After successfully completing the University of South Wales, Teaching Space Utilisation Survey earlier this year Simon Walker has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“After a recent competitive tender process USW appointed Education Space Consultancy to carry our spring utilisation survey.
The survey covered over 400 teaching rooms at 3 campuses in Pontypridd, Cardiff and Newport. The surveyors carried out the survey from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, checking each room on an hourly basis.
Education Space Consultancy was very professional in all aspects of this project and everything went according to plan without any problems. The data collected was produced into an excel spreadsheet, as per USW specification, the following week.
The accuracy of this data is very important to USW as it is used in the creation of a report that is shown at, many high level management meetings throughout the University. I look forward to using Education Space Consultancy in our future Utilisation surveys.

Following the recent completion of the Teaching Space Utilisation Survey and Consultancy Report for Gower College Swansea, Colin Richards has provided Education Space Consultancy with the following testimonial;
“Following a recent competitive tender process Gower College Swansea appointed Education Space Consultancy to carry out a space utilisation of teaching accommodation on all college sites for this year and a further two years.
This survey was carried out w/c 10th November 2014. The survey covered the day from 09.00 on Monday morning to 16.30 on the Friday afternoon checking each room on an hourly basis in line with the college timetable.
The survey was very professional and went smoothly with no disruption to teaching and learning reported during the week. The report on the utilisation survey was produced very quickly and is a complete and comprehensive record of the week. The report was issued in draft form to enable the College to comment and ensure accuracy prior to the final report. The conclusions and recommendations from Education Space Consultancy are both sensible and achievable and are being closely looked at within the College to bring about a sustained improvement in our use of space.
I have no hesitation in giving Education Space Consultancy this reference and look forward to working with them next year.
