Our Major Works Framework has proven to be the winning combination for another construction services provider. This time, ISG have secured two Pagabo-aided education projects in the South East valued at over £15 million.

The brace of contracts are the latest in a series of awards via our influential framework, and underline Pagabo’s aim to drive efficiencies and best value across public sector procurement.

The exciting news for ISG is also excellent news for us. In 2018, we delivered 195 projects across all frameworks worth in excess of £462 million – with £1.6bn worth of construction work secured. We are more SME friendly dealing with over 450 clients, delivering real social value across a variety of sectors and frameworks.

Our CEO, Simon Toplass said:  “Our clients are so important to us, but we don’t have premises for them to come and see our work – it’s not that kind of business - but what we do have are great organisations like ISG that can fly the flag for Pagabo in terms of how they interact with our clients from the very beginning of a project through to hand over.

Looking across the contractors on our Framework I see teams focussed on their work, who have an excellent understanding of the construction industry. Within these teams are some great individuals who all own a high degree of integrity, a real flair for building and managing client relationships but also display Pagabo’s values too – a great combination.”

Zoe Price, group director for public sector frameworks at ISG, said: “Pagabo is a key procurement vehicle to deliver vital community infrastructure, bringing a broad range of efficiencies into the project development cycle, championing innovation and collaboration and enabling contractors to bring schemes to site quicker than ever. It’s an exciting time to be working within the public sector procurement arena, where there is real momentum for transformational change that brings better results.”

Our company’s wins for ISG will see a £7.2 million refurbishment of Barking and Dagenham college. It will provide first class teaching spaces, laboratories, open plan study areas, a café with associated plant rooms, storage areas and restrooms.

The second is an 83-bedroom, student residential unit at Oaklands College in Hertfordshire. The scheme also includes the construction of a new college car park and associated hard landscaping works on the western side of the campus. Both schemes will commence in March 2019.

We’ve played our part in realizing ISG’s vision to be the world’s most dynamic construction services company. That’s what we call good work.
