Scott Brownrigg’s South East Asia Director, Mike Warren, who heads the Singapore outfit, explains why Singapore is an ideal location to set up an Asian base.
“Singapore is very significant in the region. It’s an easy place to set up a business, and it’s extremely well connected [to Southeast Asia]. It is definitely the right place, we think, to have a [regional business] hub.”

It’s designed to support 2,000 students and 400 staff, and will incorporate a forum of teaching spaces arranged around a landscaped, naturally ventilated area that’s protected from the tropical elements via a translucent ETFE roof. This lush green area serves as the social heart of the campus, is designed to emulate the open lawn areas that are popular with the students from the university’s UK campus.
