North West Cambridge Development

A new district and extension to the city, centred around a mixed academic and urban community.


The client

As part of the University of Cambridge’s continued growth as one of the world’s leading universities, the North West Cambridge Development was born.

The vision; to create a new district and extension to the city, centred around a mixed academic and urban community.

Following a highly competitive formal tender process, we were awarded the opportunity to create a new website for NWCD with the aim to introduce their new brand and reflect the next part of the project lifecycle.

The project

The original site was created to predominantly reach the local community and was used as a device to support the planning process. 

As the project entered a new phase, a new site was needed to reflect the background of the development, current progress and news. 

“The website design and functionality have been well received by our audiences and our webstats show an increase in visitors. The team worked extremely hard to provide a fresh-looking and user-friendly website that aligned to our brand identity.”

The solution

To meet the aims of the new website we:

  • Designed a visually stunning website to engage and enthuse stakeholders
  • Created a fully operational and compatible site within the given timeframe
  • Developed a complete Drupal site compatible with the hosting service
  • Introduced social media integration
  • Ensured the site could easily be edited by non-technical administrators

The client was extremely happy with the outcome and we have already begun scoping out the next phases of the project.

Our ongoing work with the NWCD team aims to ensure that continues to inspire key stakeholders and remains a great place to engage and find out more about the North West Cambridge Development.
