The firm told the City today: “Following the recruitment of some of the senior management team from Rok’s former Scottish business, ISG has opened a new office in Glasgow and secured contracts totalling £40 million, including completion of a bottling hall scheme for Diageo, a regeneration scheme for Home Scotland and a luxury accommodation scheme in St Andrews’.
“The Scottish business has to date created 43 jobs.”
The £40m contributed to a £120m haul of recent new contracts across the UK including projects for Imperial College and British Land in London, Dudley College in the Midlands, Railtrack in Yorkshire and BAE in the North West.
David Lawther, ISG Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to announce these contract awards in our UK Construction business across our network of offices, and in particular the creation of our presence in Scotland.”
Craig Tatton, ISG’s UK construction managing director, said: “The business had a great December, winning orders right up to Christmas Eve, which provides us with a great springboard for 2011.
“Significantly, the construction business has secured projects right across its national office network, indicating that there are real opportunities for those contractors with the expertise and ambition to assist clients in bringing schemes to site.”
