“The overwhelming benefit of Scape Venture is that it allows Incrementum to access a full range of professional services under one pre-qualifying contract. This saves considerable time on procurement, and also has the added advantage of allowing us to work directly with the main contractor throughout the initial stages, thus ensuring the housing is designed for maximum efficiency and buildability.”
Robust budget that informs business case and viability
Viability is key to every Incrementum scheme, and our early budget advice during feasibility stage enables Incrementum to assess its business case before committing to a particular scheme.
We prepare a robust budget that gives the client confidence that there will only be one request for funding, before driving down the cost plan through innovative design and a rigorous survey process. Again, this has major benefits, as Jonathan notes:
Wates is already progressing plans for four sites across the borough, including a mix of low-level housing and mid-rise apartment schemes. Ultimately the aspiration is to set a brand for the borough, whereby units immediately look and feel like an Incrementum property.
Helping Incrementum deliver Warrington’s housing needs is an exciting opportunity for the Wates North West team, and through an efficient and socially responsible route provided by Scape Venture, we look forward to building a valued relationship with a potential repeat customer.
