ISG Secures Three School Projects Via Lewisham Framework
ISG has been awarded three primary school extension projects, with a combined value of around £5.4 million, in the London Borough of Redbridge. The schemes have all been procured through the highly-regarded Lewisham Modular Education Framework.
The Lewisham Framework was designed to allow neighbouring local authorities to utilise the vehicle as an efficient and cost effective procurement route for a broad spectrum of capital projects. The scheme involves the construction of a two-storey, 8,600 sq. ft. extension at each of three Redbridge schools - Chadwell Primary, Barley Lane Primary and Downshall Primary - all of which are located close to Illford.
The schemes are all due to start on site in April, with each 19-week project due for completion in time for the start of the new academic year in September. Providing additional teaching accommodation to enable the schools to increase their intake, the three classroom blocks will be constructed using a Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) system, to reduce the overall build programme and maximise the thermal efficiencies of the new structures.
ISG’s Stuart Deverill, managing director – London, commented: “There is a clear and urgent requirement to enhance and expand existing school buildings to provide sufficient school places to meet growing demand. The flexible nature of the Lewisham Framework has demonstrated how important these procurement vehicles can be in fast-tracking projects to ensure schemes get to site quickly and efficiently.
“Bringing extensive live environment working expertise and a strong track record in the successful delivery of modern methods of construction, ISG built a compelling case to secure these projects with the London Borough of Redbridge. We are anticipating further opportunities in the sector given the nature of the increasing demand for school places within the region.”
