SCAPE Better for local communities

SCAPE's Hilary Carter, John Simons and Chris Clarke discuss how the new Construction framework will benefit your local community and economy.

In a world that’s seen significant and rapid change in recent years, priorities for your public sector funded projects have shifted focus to ensure that these vital amenities are built back better with social value in mind; that they help the economy, have a positive social impact, and reduce the environmental demands made by older buildings.

Putting communities and environments at the core of each project, right from inception, is the key tenet of the next-generation SCAPE Construction framework. Like you, we believe in creating tangible benefits to the people around us – not just for the duration of the project, but as part of a long-term, sustainable legacy.

We’re moving social value on, SCAPE is looking to create long term tangible benefits.

John Simons, acting group procurement director
