ISG awarded second Dudley College contract

ISG has won a contract for the construction of a new sixth form building for Dudley College in the West Midlands.

The scheme, thought to be worth more than £5 million is set for completion by the beginning of the 2012 term.

The win comes following the award of a regeneration contract with Dudley College believed to be worth £16 million in February.

The three-storey block will accommodate A-Level teaching for a raft of different subjects.

ISG midlands managing director Jonathan Kell said: “Completing a full sixth form facility in just 41-weeks, within a live campus environment is a challenging brief and, as the college is already inviting applicants for the September 2012 intake, there can be no margin for delays.

“Our understanding of the sector and precise project management will be critical in delivering the project, which is a landmark development for Dudley College.”

It will be constructed using piled foundations and a composite frame, with a pre-cast concrete ground floor and steel frame structure for the remaining two storeys.

External finishes to Dudley Sixth’s façade include brickwork, copper cladding and curtain walling.

In addition to the Ednam Road building, the project also involves minor refurbishment and extension works to Priory Villa, an existing Victorian building on site.

The works will create enhancing accessibility and form a new entrance. ISG will also carry out extensive external works, including the creation of a new plaza and lawned area with associated paths and paving.
