Scape and our framework partners have a deep understanding of complex engineering and building challenges e.g. Infrastructure, Utilities, Temporary Works and Land Remediation. We have extensive experience of working in close proximity to live transport networks, interfacing with the public and dealing with congested sites and live services, including BIM (including integration with Facilities Maintenance). We also have the ability to lead large design teams, often with multiple architects needed to address the complex nature of the regeneration
