ISG has been appointed to Derwent’s £12.4m office refurb at Whitechapel High Street.
The contractor will refurb the former RBS office to provide 18,600 sq m of office space with a new entrance and reception area.
ISG will strip out the eight-storey building with structural alterations at ground floor level including partial infill of the existing atrium.
The project includes the upgrade of M&E infrastructure and is located close to ISG’s head office in Aldgate.
ISG Southern regional managing director Stuart Deverill said: “Office construction activity within the immediate vicinity of our head office has significantly increased over the past six months and really highlights the strong levels of occupier demand in this area.”
ISG last week revealed it had won a £16.9m deal to refurbish a seven-storey London office at 72-75 Fenchurch Street.
The company is currently the subject of a hostile takeover by US firm Cathexis.
