Quod provided advice to the Wellcome Trust on its plans to expand its South Cambridgeshire life sciences Campus, home to a cluster of world-class organisations leading pioneering genomic science research and development.
Expansion will allow Wellcome to grow research and commercial translation capabilities from this UK base – generating UK jobs, supply chain, intellectual capital and reputational benefits for the broader Cambridge and UK economy – and pursue its vision to make advances in tackling the world’s most urgent human health challenges.
Quod provided Planning, Socio-economic, Development Economics and Environmental Planning services to secure permission for a visionary masterplan including 150,000 sqm commercial space, 1,500 new homes ring-fenced for Campus workers, and supporting facilities and infrastructure. The proposals were granted planning permission by South Cambridgeshire in December 2020. The Campus hosts the largest concentration of genomic and biodata expertise in the world. It currently employs 2,500 people from 83 countries and hosts an innovation centre and conference facilities.
