Plan for our new Cambridge HQ

01 October 2013

Cambridge Assessment is proposing to invest in a new purpose-built HQ. Plans are being developed for a new office at the site known as ‘The Triangle’ off Shaftesbury Road, south east of the city centre. ‘The Triangle’ is presently the site of the Edinburgh Building offices and warehouse site, which is currently used by Cambridge University Press.

Assuming that planning permission can be achieved, the proposals would allow Cambridge Assessment to bring its several existing offices located around the city together under one roof. This will allow it to continue to grow and to provide the best possible working environment for its over 1,600 Cambridge-based employees. A major local employer, and world leading authority on examinations assessment, Cambridge Assessment is continuing to invest in the city. With its commitment to being a good neighbour, over the coming months Cambridge Assessment will be speaking with and listening to the local community through consultation events on the emerging proposals, prior to submitting a planning application to Cambridge City Council.

Comments Simon Lebus, Group Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment: “Our proposals reflect our continuing high levels of international growth and our confidence in the future. The current situation of being spread across several different locations in the city centre is proving to be increasingly inefficient and unsustainable. The project provides us with an opportunity to create a new home to reflect Cambridge Assessment’s role in the heart of our great city.”
