ISG secures Pagabo education win

25 February 2019

Barking and Dagenham’s new Centre of Advanced Technologies

ISG has added to its recent education win tally, securing an additional project in the South East valued at over £7 million through the Pagabo Framework. 

The contract is the latest in a series of recent projects awarded via the influential framework, including a £34 million project at Richmond upon Thames College, which drives efficiencies and best value across public sector procurement. 

The project will see ISG’s Agility division refurbish Block D at Barking and Dagenham college to create a Centre of Advanced Technologies. 

The £7.2 million refurbishment of the centre will provide new teaching spaces, laboratories, open plan study areas, a café with associated plant rooms, storage areas and restrooms. 

External works will include new glazing, cladding and a high-specification feature entrance lobby area. 

The work on the new facility will form part of the upgrading works of the entire education estate, which will remain in full operation for the duration of the project.

Zoe Price, group director for public sector frameworks at ISG, said: “The increasing focus on how our industry can work smarter and more efficiently to deliver high-quality and future-proofed spaces for our communities is driving real change within our sector. 

“ISG and our partners have been working for 18-months on a standard component design for classrooms and we are seeing great synergy within the public sector, with the current government consultation on this very issue.

“Pagabo is a key procurement vehicle to deliver vital community infrastructure, bringing a broad range of efficiencies into the project development cycle, championing innovation and collaboration and enabling contractors to bring schemes to site quicker than ever. 

“It’s an exciting time to be working within the public sector procurement arena, where there is real momentum for transformational change that brings better results.” 

ISG will start on site in March 2019 with the project due for completion by the end of the year.  

The current framework runs until April 2020, enabling ISG to be selected for work from £5m-£50m+ in the North, Midlands, South West, Wales, London and the South East.
