We were pleased to recently welcome the Land Economy course of Cambridge University who inspected our development at 101 Cambridge.
Firstly we arranged for two members of our development team, architects Scott Brownrigg and Quantity Surveyors from EC Harris, to present at a course lecture and run a workshop to assist students on design and cost matters relating to development options. This was followed up with a site visit to 101 Cambridge to show the students a development in the middle of the construction period complimented with a session on development appraisals and financial models with Michael Bucknell, Senior Development Manager at Exemplar Properties.
Dr Helen Bao from Cambridge University commented: “Our students found the seminar and site visit very interesting and informative. In particular, they found Gerard’s in-house cost figures, Ed’s answers to questions regarding design and planning issues, and Michael’s demonstration of the financial analysis of the site very helpful. Thanks very much for sharing this information with us. We run this real estate development course every year. It would be great if our students can share your experience and expertise again.”
