UK-based construction services company ISG has secured eight new projects from Cheshire West and Chester Council of worth approximately £4 million ($6.2 million) as part of the North West Construction Hub Medium Value Framework.
ISG will refurbish seven of the eight projects at schools across the local authority, with projects at Upton Westlea Primary, Highfield Primary, Acresfield Primary and Cherry Grove Primary making up one package and Byley Primary, Aston-by-Sutton Primary and Winsford High Street Primary combining to make the second package.
The classroom refurbishments build on ISG’s education sector track record with Cheshire West and Chester Council, with work progressing on a £1.8 million ($2.8 million) mobile classroom replacement programme across four schools and a £1.2 million ($1.8 million), four classroom extension project nearing completion at Mickle Trafford Primary School in Chester.
Work on the new suite of classroom projects will commence in February/March 2012 and will be completed as true design and build schemes, with ISG carrying out feasibility studies, early cost plans, design and construction.
The final project in ISG’s latest round of North West Construction Hub wins is the £636,000 refurbishment of Chester Town Hall. The project will involve reconfiguring the existing building, extensive internal refurbishment to create high quality function facilities and an upgrade of the existing Assembly Room, including the installation of a new audio visual system.
