ISG has been chosen for a £46m student accommodation project in Sheffield.

The win continues a strong 12 months for ISG, which earlier this week won its biggest UK construction job of the year with an £89m deal to build a new transport hub in Cardiff.

The Sheffield job is the contractor’s second win for Fusion this year having previously been picked to build a £39m, 17-storey tower in Swansea.

The firm has also completed a £40m student halls complex in Cardiff and a £26m mixed-use scheme in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, for the same developer.
