Putting technology on the map: how are we adding value in the triangle?

The 'Golden Tech Triangle' consists of institutions typically considered members who have among the highest research incomes of all British universities and collaborate closely through initiatives.

 At ISG, we have long-standing relationships with some of the world's higher education institutions who trust us to deliver a range of schemes, ranging from laboratories and classrooms to student accommodation and new build research facilities.

Check out our new interactive map to find out more about how we revolutionising the delivery dynamic.

The golden technology triangle: what are the opportunities?

Richard Irwin, ISG's business development director, shares his thoughts on the conglomerate of world-leading education institutions that are helping shape the technology and biosciences corridor between Cambridge, London and Oxford.

"The growth of the golden technology triangle is showing a lot of promising opportunities for the construction sector with more university establishments needing to expand or  upgrade existing facilities to keep up to date with the everchanging demands of technology"

Finding the right chemistry at Imperial College

Construction acrobatics were required to squeeze the complex mass of services for a seven-storey chemistry laboratory at Imperial College London into the inflexible footprint of a new build office block.

Find how we are transforming the new home of Imperial College London’s renowned Department of Chemistry, on a regeneration site in White City, west London.

Pioneering scientific discovery in the Antarctic region

Funded by the UK Government through the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with support from Cambridge University, the new Aurora Cambridge Innovation Centre is a research-led organisation that seeks to be a world-leader in polar science and operations - encouraging global collaboration in the field.

ISG is helping to pioneer scientific discovery after delivering British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) state-of-the-art Aurora Cambridge Innovation Centre at its headquarters in Cambridge.

A formula for success at Oxford University's new chemistry labs

Leading trade publication, New Steel Construction Magazine, has published an in-depth article on our new chemistry teaching building at Oxford UniversityThe double-spread feature titled, ‘Top marks for steel frame’, featured comments from ISG project manager, James Howard.

James discussed how cellular beam steelwork had revolutionised the delivery of the new chemistry teaching block, located on a tightly constrained site.The building forms an integral part of Oxford University’s wider investment into its estates portfolio. The new three-storey steel-framed extension will transform an existing 1960s university building into a suite of highly specified undergraduate laboratories for the Department of Chemistry.

Transforming 1960s office space into Europe's largest pathology lab

We have dispelled the myth that a state-of-the-art laboratory cannot be housed within a pre-existing office building, says ISG’s healthcare building specialist.

ISG’s divisional director, Paul Sharp, made the comments in a special feature in The Pathologist, one of the UK’s leading publications on pathology.

Paul said turning the established 15-storey building into a new facility – known as the Halo Building - for Healthcare Services Laboratories (HSL) – involved an unprecedented level of complexity. Find out more in our 'what we think' section.
