Third MediaCityUK Scheme Taken by ISG

ISG has won a third project at Peel Holding’s MediaCityUK development in Salford, the new home of numerous BBC departments and national hub for creative industry businesses. The contractor’s latest win at the 36-acre media site is for SIS (Satellite Information Services), a world leader in the television production industry.

SIS supplies high quality real-time data and video from horse and greyhound racing, football and other sports, to bookmakers and retail markets worldwide. The company’s broadcast business, SIS LIVE, operates Europe’s largest fleet of satellite uplink and outside broadcast units.

The fast-track design and build scheme involves the specialist fit out of the company’s 25,000ft2 premises at MediaCityUK, including a recording space with bespoke acoustic requirements and a complex technical specification, along with an open plan office floor with reception, meeting rooms and breakout areas, with handover scheduled for early spring 2012.

The contractor has previously completed two fit out projects at Peel Media’s 18-storey ‘Blue Tower’ at MediaCityUK and was invited to tender for the SIS project following a referral from Peel Media. ISG’s growing reputation in the creative industries sector includes its award winning £2.4 million creative industries teaching facility at Glyndwr University’s Wrexham campus, which includes the BBC’s outdoor broadcast unit base for North Wales and the recent Baltic Creative development in Liverpool.

ISG’s Jim Parker, managing director - North West, commented: “Fostering strong and mutually beneficial relationships with key regional developers is central to our strategy for growth. ISG’s relationship with Peel Media and experience of successful project delivery at the MediaCityUK site has directly led to this latest opportunity with SIS, which is an excellent endorsement of our capabilities and sector credentials.”
