ISG begin construction work on £32.5m Cardiff office scheme
ISG has won a contract worth more than £32 million to build a 12-storey office block at Cardiff's Central Square development.
The development next to Cardiff Central Station is the second major contract the builder has secured with developer Rightacres at the scheme after also building the new headquarters for BBC Cymru Wales.
ISG will construct the circa 130,000 sq ft steel frame building, which will include nine floors of open plan office accommodation and a terrace area at level seven with views over the city.
The building will also boast a comfort cooling system, LED lighting throughout and advanced data connectivity. A state-of-the-art building management system (BMS) and a core focus on the environmental performance of every element of the building will enable the office to achieve a BREEAM Excellent performance rating.
Jon James, regional director for ISG’s UK Construction West business, said: “Demand for highly specified office space in central Cardiff is significantly outstripping supply so it’s not surprising that there has been so much interest in this office development at such an early stage.
"Building on our partnership with Rightacres, this latest win gives us the opportunity to complete two of the key elements of the Central Square masterplan and represents a major vote of confidence in our credentials delivering high value, high quality new build schemes in Wales.”
