The NIA of offices associated with research space.


  • research support staff offices,
  • managers, administrators, executives, secretaries, and technicians (if they have identifiable office space),
  • ancillary storage space,
  • the offices of staff who are contracted to undertake research,
  • any attribution of other office space used for research activities.

Commercial space that can be separately identified as a discrete area together with all associated costs, staff, energy, waste, emissions etc. is considered non-returnable and should be excluded from the Estates management record.

Only in circumstances where commercial space cannot be identified in accordance with the aforementioned conditions is it considered returnable and should therefore be included in the Estates management record (together with all associated costs, staff, energy, waste, emissions etc.).
