ISG wins £13.5 million office development at Watford business park

ISG has been awarded a £13.5 million contract to build a new office block at Croxley Park near Watford.

Chosen by the business park's owners, the contractor will work alongside development manager Bell Hammer to construct a 65,000 sq ft office development for the 60 companies and 2,500 employees on the 75 acre site.

The new concrete frame building incorporates extensive curtain walling and a copper canopy feature entrance, with a full height glazed atrium on the first and second floors, which opens up at ground floor level. The Grade-A open plan office accommodation has been designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ environmental performance standards and the scheme also includes external landscaping and car park.

Graeme White, ISG’s divisional director, said: “With Government backing now secured for a third runway at Heathrow, it’s clear that there will be increasing office construction, refurbishment and fit out opportunities in the region moving forward.

“By laying the foundations for a strong and sustainable business in the area and beyond, we are well placed to secure an increasing share of these new opportunities, such as this exciting new development at Croxley Park.

"ISG has forged excellent client and supply chain relationships and our robust delivery track record has helped us win new clients, like Croxley Park and Bell Hammer, as well as making us a preferred partner with our existing client base.”
