ISG Jackson clinches £13.7m Southwark job

ISG Jackson has won a £13.7 million deal to build a new library at Canada Water for Southwark Council.

The 3,165 sq m library building, designed by partner at CZWG Architects Piers Gough, overhangs the Canada Water basin.

Itwill sit at the edge of a new civic plaza which together will form part of a dynamic new town centre for Canada Water, which includes approximately 900 new homes, new retail and public space.

ISG Jackson’s public division director Ian Gifford said: “The scheme incorporates significant technical challenges for us as main contractor, with a tightly constrained site situated above a busy underground station, and a complex structure that overhangs the basin.

“Our early involvement in the design process has proved an important factor in the development of a robust strategy to successfully deliver this stunning building, which we confidently expect to spark further regeneration efforts within the immediate area.”

Work is due to start this summer with completion expected by early 2011.
