The University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA) provides recreation and culture programs and events to approximately 16,000 residents who live in five separate Neighbourhood Housing Areas on the Campus at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

With the expected growth of the UNA population and the demand for programming and events increasing, the UNA is seeking a consultant to review current recreation and culture programming provided by the UNA, and, after undertaking a relevant trends analysis, population and socio-demographic analysis and comprehensive community engagement, determine community needs and provide recommendations on the provision of recreation and culture programming over the next five years.

Landscaping Management Plan [Closed]

Closing Date: Friday, September 3, 2021 at 3 p.m. [Closed]

The UNA is responsible for the provision of the operation, maintenance, repair and replacement of street lighting, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, roads, and landscaping within the Neighbourhood Housing Areas;

Although not a municipality, the Association provides municipal-like services to area residents, and therefore has landscape services that mirror those in a municipal setting.

The purpose of this project is to conduct an assessment of the UNA’s landscaping services and current practices, provide recommendations, and develop an overarching landscaping plan and applicable landscaping management guidelines and policies for a consistent approach to landscaping that embeds sustainable best practices into operations.

Office Space Needs Assessment [Closed]

Closing Date: Friday, August 20, 2021 at 3 p.m. [Closed]

The University Neighbourhoods Association (Association) provides municipal like services to approximately 14,000 residents who live in five separate Neighbourhood Housing Areas on the Campus at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

The number of full-time equivalent employees is approximately 35, and the employees currently work out of three separate facilities (two community centres and an administration office).

The UNA does not own its facilities; either leasing them from UBC Properties Trust (administration office) or operating and utilizing them under license agreement with UBC (community centres).
With the expected growth of the University Neighbourhoods Association population and the demand for services increasing, the organization is finding that space is becoming increasingly limited.

The Association is seeking a long-term office space needs assessment that will provide a framework for decision making related to office space needs that meet the requirements of the organization for the next 10 years.
