Additional North West Council Wins Secured by ISG

Taking schemes at the National Cycling Centre and at Cledford House in Middlewich, ISG has secured further work from the North West Construction Hub Framework.

The contractor has secured a £550,000 refurbishment scheme with Cheshire East Council to convert the former Cledford Primary School in Middlewich into ‘Cledford House’, which will house office accommodation for Cheshire East Children and Families Services.

The refurbishment includes reorganisation of the internal space, alterations and upgrades to the mechanical and electrical systems, new decoration and floorcoverings throughout and a range of external works. The facility will provide both offices and play areas, creating a base for Children’s Services as they process applications to foster or adopt, and a dedicated environment for children to come into contact with prospective parents.

ISG will also be returning to the National Cycling Centre, where the company has previously carried out a full track replacement, creation of a new restaurant area and various infrastructure upgrades, taking on two new projects for Manchester City Council under the auspices of the North West Construction Hub framework.

The first of the two schemes involves replacement lighting for the velodrome track area to improve lighting intensity and ensure facilities are in line with requirements for high definition TV broadcasts. ISG has also been contracted to upgrade the lighting in the central area within the track, which is used for other sporting activities such as basketball and badminton. The project will include the installation of additional wiring and lighting controls.

The contractor has also secured a £580,000 project, independent from the framework, with Cheshire West and Chester Council, to refurbish two industrial units to provide a new office and storage facility for the authority’s library service. The 16-week programme will see ISG install new mechanical and electrical services, create offices within the building and install specialist racking for the book storage areas.

ISG’s Jim Parker, managing director - North West, commented: “The latest wins via the North West Construction Hub are indicative of the variety of schemes delivered through the framework. This approach to procurement reduces the tendering process for both the client and the contractor, which has a positive impact on costs, quality and project delivery timeframes.”
