Douglas Little is Director of Estates at Glasgow Caledonian University with responsibility for GCU’s campuses in Glasgow, London and New York.
Douglas and his team support management in implementing the estates strategy which aims to provide a campus environment that is consistent with one of the UK’s most dynamic universities.
Douglas, who is a member of the Chartered Institute of Builders, delivers the planning, development and management of GCU’s land and buildings.
He led a team on the construction of the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed Saltire Centre and was instrumental in the introduction of a Combined Heat and Power engine (CHP) and district heating supply to help the university reduce its carbon footprint. The CHP energy centre is also used as a teaching and research resource.
This year, Douglas will oversee one of the GCU’s biggest transformations yet, the £30 million Heart of the Campus project which will create state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research facilities and inspiring social spaces.
