Media Release: ISG completes £5.3m Higher Education projects in Dundee


ISG has successfully completed two important projects at the University of Dundee’s prestigious School of Medicine, located within the grounds of Ninewells Hospital.

With a combined value of £5.3 million, the two projects form part of a wider £11 million investment by the university to upgrade facilities at one of the UK’s top performing medical schools.

In the larger of the two projects, ISG extended the existing building to provide additional teaching accommodation, a new library, IT suite and study areas for the School of Medicine.

The first brick of this 6,549 sq ft extension was laid by TV personality, Lorraine Kelly, an enthusiastic supporter and former rector of the university.

This multi-phased scheme, carried out within a busy, live environment also included the transformation of the existing IT suite to form new meeting areas, group teaching space and a medical illustration work area.

A new undergraduate office was also created and ISG comprehensively refurbished the communal hub area.

Part way through this important upgrade scheme, ISG was awarded a second contract by the university to refurbish the School of Medicine’s main lecture theatre.

The 375-seat Lecture Theatre One facility was stripped out and reconfigured to improve the seating layout, a new feature staircase installed and teaching space refurbished during the 19-week programme.

ISG has also recently completed a fast-track project for the city’s Abertay University, to replace and upgrade the roof structure on the Old College – one of the most historic buildings on the Abertay campus.

Alan McCarthy-Wyper, managing director of ISG’s construction business, commented: “We continue to build on our strong education sector credentials and within Scotland are adding to our portfolio of projects with leading institutions.

“Delivering outstanding learning environments is central to our offer as an innovative and highly experienced sector specialist and these high-profile projects reflect positively on the key investment being made in core infrastructure for future generations.”
