ISG wins £12m Scottish Widows refurb

ISG has been awarded a £12m contract to carry out a refurbishment scheme for Scottish Widows Investment Partnership in Reading.

The 12 month contract will see ISG undertake a comprehensive refurb of Abbots House, increasing the useable floor space of the 100,000 sq ft premises.

It will construct two new staircases into the four-sided central atrium, which will be stripped back to shell and core.

The works to the atrium will also involve the extension of a number of existing slabs to create a larger office floorplate to all levels.

ISG Fit Out managing director Paul Cossell said:  “SWIP is one of the largest asset management companies in Europe and this represents the latest project secured by ISG in a burgeoning relationship with the business.

“This scheme demonstrates how an existing building can be significantly enhanced to make it more commercially viable for the owner and more attractive to tenants. ISG has the required experience of completing complex schemes under business-as-usual conditions to help the client realise its ambitions at this site.”
