Over the course of several previous projects, ISG has introduced a standardised and inter-operable set of components to its designs.
By transferring and replicating proven techniques and processes, it is now fast-tracking pre-construction periods, saving time in the design phase and improving cost and programming advice at an earlier stage.
Robust data captured from previous education projects is proving the benefits of standard component design, such as structural and roof solutions, while allowing further refinements.
New projects to be fast-tracked
Through regular workshops, ISG brings together designers, suppliers, consultants and end users to find innovative practices, modernising school building.
These fresh wins follow the successful completion of Churchward School in Swindon earlier this year, which represents the latest iteration of ISG’s standard component design approach.
Alongside schemes at Badbury Park, Norton Hill and Monkerton in the South West, each of these schools are being constructed to similar fast-track timeframes, using replicated standard components, such as structural and roof solutions, to achieve consistently high quality and timely delivery.
Zoe Price, chief operating officer for ISG’s UK Construction business, said: “The DfE’s goal to embrace digitised specification in its construction framework leads the way and encourages pioneering and modern practices from its partners.
“ISG is proud to be a part of such an innovative and forward-looking approach.
“By harnessing new and revolutionary Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) elements, contractors, consultants and supply chain participants can align operations.
“This in turn enables better collaboration and smarter ways of working that pool expertise across the board and delivers enriched learning environments.”
