      Keble College graduates get 'legs' on this highly complex ground-breaking build, incorporating a basement research space

      We take the time to make sure that the investment, disruption and opportunity fulfil your strategic objectives.

      Sensitive to the live nature of the site, we will work with you to develop a brief that will provide a transformational asset that is functional, responsive to the college’s operation and changing landscape whilst providing value for money.

      With trusted input from the outset, we will take the time to test and challenge the brief and work with you to define and shape the core objectives. We will consider sustainability, equality, finance, disruption, programme, risk and opportunity.

      Establishing solid foundations from the outset, we commit to ensuring a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process is maintained, understanding the governance requirements and ensuring they align with your statement of need.

      We work with Oxford and Cambridge colleges to unlock the maximum potential of their sites whilst preserving their unique brand and historic identity. Delivering well-considered, ground-breaking and award-winning projects.

      The team have been supporting the University for over 10 years, delivering high priority complex capital projects. Most recently, on an extremely complex project requiring commitment, dedication and expertise to work through all the logistical and programme challenges, delivering in line with an accelerated programme.

      Dr David Prout, Pro‐Vice Chancellor (Planning and Resources), University of Oxford

      The college appointed Bidwells at the project inception stage to help develop a design brief and run the architectural competition for the scheme, which was a truly collaborative process. The building finished in time to celebrate the college’s tercentenary, delivering everything it promised and more.
