Nottingham City College is the first project to site for Wates through the Scape Major Works UK Framework. The new flagship college building in Nottingham City Centre will provide space for 16,000 pupils and 200 staff, providing a broad curriculum for the college including performance, media and business.

"We approached Wates through the Scape framework to work with us to get our project to a position where we had cost and design certainty. Initial meetings and workshops were established from the outset, and Wates were flexible, collaborative and ensured we had fast tracked solutions when time was critical."
