ISG has bagged a £61m contract to fit-out Imperial College’s chemistry hub at its White City campus in west London.
The contract will see ISG carry out work on the Department for Chemistry facility, located in the £76m Molecular Sciences Reserch Hub campus, which is being built by Laing O’Rourke.
Work will include the design and fit-out of the laboratories, as well as the creation of specialist laboratory space and 250-seat lecture theatre in the building’s basement.
Significant structural reinforcement will be needed at basement level for the facility’s Advanced Nuclear Magnetic Resonance suite.
The fit-out job is the latest major win for ISG at the White City campus.
Earlier this month Construction News reported that ISG had been chosen as the preferred contractor for Imperial College’s Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Hub.
The firm was also chosen to build the £40m Wood Lane Studios student housing scheme at the site, which was completed in 2013.
This latest win means ISG has carried out more than 30 schemes for Imperial College.
ISG managing director of engineering services Danny Blakeston said: “Our return to the White City Campus to deliver a key element of Imperial’s research and innovation vision reinforces our strong working relationship and specialist credentials in the technical fit out arena.
“Our early engagement reflects Imperial’s forward thinking approach on this highly-complex and large-scale project, enabling us to collaborate closely and develop an innovative fit-out solution that delivers world-class teaching and research facilities.”
