The design approach is based on a suite of standard design principles and carefully selected range of components which provide sufficient flexibility to create tailored design solutions. 

In order to reduce whole life costs and deliver an efficient building form the architectural designs are predicated on a hierarchy of environmental considerations and passive solutions with the preferred prevailing orientation of general teaching classrooms driving the generic footprint of the accommodation and the location of the new building form across the existing developed sites.

The BBB- rated project is funded by a mix of private equity and debt with private sector capital managed via an aggregated managed fund.
