ISG is the appointed contractor. It provides a comprehensive construction service to its clients around the world, working across sectors and geographies.
ISG believes in a flexible approach to delivery and recognises the importance a good design and high-quality build plays in creating inspiring, successful and dynamic environments.
Its experience in the education sector includes The American School in London, an international private school in St John’s Wood and Julian’s School, a primary school in Streatham. It has also worked on a variety of residential schemes including the Marylebone Village estate, a 139 unit residential project.
ISG is part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, which ensures the impact of building works on local communities is minimised in terms of noise, traffic, access and hours of operation. The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a national initiative set-up by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites and companies registered with the Scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice.
