ISG has announced its Manchester office will move to MediaCityUK as it targets growth in the North West region.
The move, which will take place in March 2018, will see us take up 8,500 sq ft of flexible, open-plan space at the Tomorrow Building.
The announcement follows several senior appointments in the region, including Paul Munro as regional director for the North West, and Paul Cook, who takes up the role of senior business development manager.
Paul Munro said: “We have delivered a number of projects at MediaCityUK over the last five years, and have closely watched and admired the transformation of this area under the stewardship of Peel Media.
“It was therefore an easy decision to relocate to the Tomorrow Building and MediaCityUK, as a thriving hub and the perfect place to support our ambitious regional growth strategy.
“We are in an incredibly strong position in the North West, and expect to turn over £80 miilion across our offices in Manchester and Liverpool this year, growing to over £100 million by 2022.”
ISG is currently delivering some of the North West’s most high-profile projects, including the £13 million Corn Exchange hotel project and a £39 million mixed-use hotel and student accommodation regeneration scheme at Liverpool Lime Street.
“We have established a strong reputation as an innovative and technology-led contractor across the public and private sectors, with a high-profile presence on the North West Construction Hub (NWCH)”, Paul continued.
“We are currently delivering a £25 million programme of schools for Manchester City Council through the Hub.
“This has already seen us hand over two successful projects, with a further seven currently in planning, or on site, through this important public sector framework.”
Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK, said: “We’re delighted to welcome ISG to MediaCityUK where the company is perfectly aligned to work alongside the creative, digital and tech industries.”
The Manchester and Liverpool offices form part of ISG’s wider UK Construction North & Scotland business, which is headed up by regional managing director, Andy McLinden. This business currently has a turnover in excess of £200 million and employs almost 300 people.
