FOLLOWING recent wins in Glasgow, totalling over £11 million, construction services company, ISG, has commenced additional projects in the east of the country – for the University of Edinburgh.

These awards mark the continuation of ISG’s strong relationship with one of the longest-established educational establishments in Scotland.

After successfully completing the first phase of the Ashworth building redevelopment for the School of Biological Sciences, ISG is now commencing the second phase, valued at £1 million.

Encompassing the three remaining levels of the five-storey building, the contractor will reconfigure existing accommodation to create high-specification office and laboratory space.

The University has also awarded ISG a £1.2 million project at the Michael Swann Building, which also forms part of the prestigious School of Biological Sciences.

Work has commenced on the second floor of the Michael Swann Building, where 7,900 sq.ft of study space will be reconfigured to create two new research laboratories, as well as high-quality office and meeting accommodation.

As part of the project, existing mechanical and electrical infrastructure will be stripped out and replaced with modern, highly-efficient services.

Both schemes are being carefully phased to minimise the impact of this work on teaching and research activities at the University.

Andy McLinden, ISG’s Scotland regional managing director, commented: “We’re seeing a solid pipeline of quality opportunities from the Scottish education sector and our strong credentials with key institutions continue to prove influential in securing new projects.

“Operating effectively across busy, live environments demands a collaborative and disciplined approach and this is where our expertise and sector insight are highly valued by customers.”
