Ridge was appointed by MEPC to drive its masterplan for Silverstone Park, an 130-acre innovation and business development park, attractive to high-tech engineering companies.
Initially, Ridge provided an overall strategy to enable the development to progress and enable critical activities to be identified and focused on. The Project Team was formed and consisted of multiple consultants for whom Ridge provided an overall management role. As the masterplan has developed, Ridge involvement has evolved into providing specific services on a project-by-project basis, such as Cost Consultant, Employers Agent and Principal Designer.
