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.
