ISG has bagged a £34m deal to build a higher education campus in south-west London.
The contractor was chosen by Richmond-upon-Thames College (RuTC) to build its £34m Twickenham campus – the first part of a wider £80m masterplan by the college.
ISG’s contract will include the construction of a five-storey teaching block that will increase the campus’ capacity to 3,000 students when it opens in 2019.
The block will include a full-height atrium, internal wood cladding, and rainscreen cladding plus curtain walling on the structure’s facade.
The contract has been procured through the £5bn Pagabo framework, which was launched in 2016 for use by public sector bodies, charities and universities.
Other firms to have landed spots on the framework include Galliford Try, Interserve, Laing O’Rourke, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine and Vinci.
Last year ISG was chosen by Amazon to be the main contractor for its new multi-million-pound mega-shed in Bristol.
ISG construction managing director for the South Steven McGee said: “The complexities of this project have ideally suited the Pagabo framework procurement route.
“Our early engagement on the scheme has enabled us to interrogate the brief to drive efficiencies at every stage of the build process.
“This is a beacon project for RuTC, kick-starting the wider redevelopment of its entire campus site and a key win for the ISG business.”
