ISG has been awarded three prestigious contracts within Glasgow city centre, with a combined value in excess of £11 million.
Securing two projects on Glasgow’s Queen Street – ISG will undertake a £7.5 million project at Royal Exchange House for Esson Properties, one of Scotland’s most successful and respected privately owned property development and investment companies. At 110 Queen Street, the contractor is due to commence a substantial project for one of the country’s leading professional services firms. In nearby West George Street, ISG has also been awarded a circa £2.3 million scheme for urban regeneration specialist Whiteburn Projects.
Located on the corner of Queen Street and Ingram Street, Royal Exchange House will undergo significant structural strengthening, enabling ISG to construct two additional floors, totalling 10,000 sq ft of new office accommodation at roof level on the six-storey structure, carrying out a Cat A fit out of the existing open plan office accommodation. As the scheme will be delivered within a live environment, the existing basement access route through the building to the neighbouring properties will be maintained for the duration of the works.
At 110 Queen Street, ISG will undertake a fast-track programme to fit out new office accommodation on the building’s fifth floor. The company will replace and upgrade the building’s mechanical and electrical services and complete an internal fit-out and reconfiguration of the existing space, creating a number of new cellular offices and meeting rooms.
Work has commenced on a project at 100 West George Street where ISG will carry out a major refurbishment of the existing six-storey office building. Over 19,500 sq ft of open plan, high-specification office accommodation will be created across the upper four floors, with space on the lower ground and upper ground floors prepared for a restauranteur to fit-out. ISG will also remodel and refurbish the entrance and reception areas to a high standard.
Andy McLinden, ISG’s Scotland regional managing director, commented:
“There are encouraging signs of growth in the Glasgow office market and securing three projects in such close proximity underlines this positive sentiment. Reinvigorating existing property assets by increasing capacity, remodelling and upgrading accommodation will be a key trend moving forward and ISG is well positioned to take an increasing share of this growing market.”
