The resulting development, Cornell Quarter, is one of the largest schemes procured under the Scape Venture framework to date and only took 24 weeks from initial inception (with a feasibility assessment) to work starting on site.

  •  95% SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) engaged
  •  Seven National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) delivered
  •  100% cardboard and plastic recycled
  •  46/50 Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) score
  •  98% of waste diverted from landfill
“The Cornell Quarter Project illustrates perfectly the benefits of the Scape Venture framework. By bringing together the very best of public and private procurement expertise, the student accommodation and facilities will be delivered with efficiency and value for money, whilst being rigorously performance managed throughout.”
