Working in partnership with Bouygues UK, Open Spaces was awarded the contract to deliver the detailed landscape design phase of the £120m flagship headquarters for Cambridge Assessment, the organisation responsible for delivering the operation and management of the University of Cambridge examination boards.

Working collaboratively with other professionals in the team, Open Spaces delivered the detailed landscape design for ‘The Triangle Project’ using KeySCAPE LT and Revit software, ensuring the scheme is fully compliant to BIM Level 2.

Using KeySCAPE LT, Open Spaces provided the design for all formal and informal, soft and hard landscape elements including the planting plan, landscape build-ups and the tree planting details.



KeySCAPE LT is a cost effective, standalone solution that includes its own AutoCAD (OEM) engine, enabling you to quickly design landscape projects and easily collaborate with your design partners.

KeySCAPE LT supports BIM which relies on a single source of the truth. It allows you to create and edit in one place, improving accuracy, speed of modifications and minimises errors, compared to managing duplicate copies of the same data within separate applications.
