Biographical / Historical

In 1965, when the University of Edinburgh Development Committee was reconstituted, the Major Buildings Committee and the former Works Committee were dissolved and the new Works and Buildings Committee came into being. This Committee had control of all buildings, whether planned or existing, and liaised directly with the architects and user-group sub-committees, while a Minor Buildings Sub-Committee dealt with works under £5,000. Percy Johnson-Marshall reported to this committee in terms of his overall master plans, matters of general layout and coordination of external works etc.
