ISG Construction

Construction Project Overview

This project is dedicated to producing additional educational facilities within an existing school, including a new 6th-form building and sports fields. Demolition and refurbishment will also take place. The project is being delivered across several phases, requiring a focus on maintaining a positive working relationship with the existing school to ensure successful completion. ISG Construction has been awarded a Considerate Constructors Scheme Gold National Site Award for the incredible standards upheld during the project in 2023. The project team has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to delivering high standards at the site in line with the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice.

Project Highlights

The project team played a crucial role in maintaining excellent site condition and presentation. Their ongoing community engagement met the scheme’s needs superbly. Strong leadership was evident with a clear understanding of the scheme’s goals. Proactive efforts minimised disruptive impacts, evidenced by clear communication with community stakeholders. Environmental issues were emphasised during workforce induction, and notice boards provided necessary information for workers, visitors, and the public. The project team demonstrated commitment to environmental issues with relevant accreditations in place. Innovative initiatives were underway to reduce the project’s carbon footprint. Workforce welfare remained a top priority, demonstrated by the excellent facilities provided. Positive leadership and an understanding of scheme requirements created a strong foundation for health, safety, mental health, and overall wellbeing.

Innovations & Best Practices

The site team has been remarkable in achieving excellent standards, but they have also taken things further by implementing 2 on-site innovations to maximise performance. They introduced a new ISG excavator bucket to improve safety and eliminate manual labour. They also introduced a Studbrite Airconditioning Cassette Lifter for safer and more efficient air-conditioning installation.

Respecting the Community

The project team has understood the Scheme’s requirements and maintained a community-focused site setup. Their proactive communication with community groups fostered effective project management and showcased accomplishments. This transparent approach provided an open feedback channel for all stakeholders.

Caring for the Environment

The site team has prioritised the protection and enhancement of the natural environment. Their environmental accreditations and carbon-reduction initiatives illustrated a comprehensive approach. This commitment extended to their supply chain, ensuring widespread participation in sustainability efforts. Waste reduction measures and a detailed landscaping plan contributed to a lasting positive environmental impact.

Valuing the Workforce

The site team has also placed a high value on workforce safety, wellbeing, and mental health. The meticulously maintained on-site facilities reflected this priority. Additionally, progressive workforce policies such as paternity schemes, flexible working and more have further enhanced team welfare.

Congratulations to the team for these outstanding performance levels.
