Projects of the year 2011

ISG has bagged the £125m job to fit-out the new UK headquarters for UBS at 5 Broadgate, in the City of London.

The contract is the largest London office fit-out job to come to market in the past year.

According to construction data analyst Barbour ABI, ISG beat off competition from Overbury and Como for the contract.

The office building is currently under construction, with Mace acting as construction manager.

ISG is scheduled to commence work on site at the start of 2015, following a twelve month pre-construction period.

ISG will deliver approximately 700,000 sq ft of high-specification commercial office accommodation for the global financial services firm.

The building will house up to three trading floors, enabling UBS to consolidate its London trading operations within one building, an auditorium, large executive area and a range of open plan and cellular office space.

David Lawther, ISG chief executive, said: “A win of this scale and prestige is a tremendous result and further reinforces our position as the sector’s lead contractor.

“Reassuringly, confidence is returning to the London office market as a whole, and in addition to securing many of the capital’s most high-profile schemes, we have maintained and built on our reputation for delivering exceptional fit out solutions across all value bands.”
