Exclusive member content
In this case study CEG and Pierre Angulaire explain how they measured the social benefits at Kirkstall Forge, a huge £400m regeneration project near Leeds. Using a social value calculator, based on 30 criteria, the social value was calculated at over £10m. The final value may be as high as £240m.
Howard Metcalf, project manager at Pierre Angulaire, says: “The social and environmental impacts of projects are becoming more important when assessing whether a project will go ahead. Through projects like Kirkstall Forge, CEG and its partners have real evidence that they can deliver.”
