The Quadrant

The Trust board recognised the long term nature of the work and as long ago as 1998 started to consider the need for an independent source of income that could assure the sustainability of the Trust itself beyond SRB and maintain its capacity to deliver.

 
It was the pioneering spirit of the Trust plus its capacity for innovation and creativity that led to the birth of what is now known as the Quadrant. The project satisfied three key aims :
 
  • To begin the process of regenerating the former Parkway Wholesale Markets site and act as a catalyst for the development of Parkway Business Park, identified by Objective 2 as a Strategic Economic Zone.
  • To provide SMEs with much needed high quality managed workspace within which growth would be encouraged and supported ( research carried out for Objective 1 had identified a gap in the South Yorkshire market for high quality accommodation that would meet the needs of the high growth, high technological companies and for “grow on” space that would free up incubator units).
  • To provide MCDT with an asset that would provide a long term income stream to ensure the community regeneration activity continued beyond the current grant regimes.
