Changing conditions in Higher Education and national funding regimes preceded a proliferation of construction projects in
universities between 1996 and 2006. This book reviews a hundred projects between 1996 and 2006, and uses 9 detailed case studies
from the author's time in charge of capital projects at the University of Cambridge to show us how these projects were conceived,
argued for, designed, procured, managed, constructed, and passed on to building users. Readers with an interest in project
management, estate management, University management, or the history of the University of Cambridge will find this fascinating
and wide-ranging book to be uniquely valuable.
