ISG takes Edinburgh office scheme

Property developer Chris Stewart Group has appointed ISG to deliver a multi-million pound office and leisure project as part of the £60m redevelopment of The Registers – a regeneration of the southeast corner of St Andrew Square in Edinburgh.

The Registers development comprises the Mint Building at 28-52 West Register Street and adjacent 42 St Andrew Square.  The mixed-use Mint Building scheme sees ISG create 5,700 m2 of Grade A office space and 1,000 m2 of leisure space across ground and basement levels.

The Mint Building incorporates a warehouse constructed in the Venetian Gothic architectural style in the 1860s. ISG will retain and repair the building’s façade, whilst reconfiguring and extending capacity with a new steel frame structure. A series of adjacent buildings in a poor state of repair have been pulled down as part of the project and ISG will construct a new steel structure to link into the existing warehouse building, providing seven floors of open plan office space. The new build element incorporates sandstone cladding with glazed curtain walling.

ISG is working alongside architects Hoskins Architects, RYBKA M&E consultant and structural engineers Will Rudd Davidson.

Andy McLinden, managing director of ISG’s UK Construction North and Scotland business, said: “There are encouraging signs of growth in the Edinburgh office market and reinvigorating existing assets is a key trend. Refurbishing and retrofitting existing properties, especially within a heritage context, requires a very specific skillset and high levels of expertise. When you also add complex logistical constraints and busy locations into these scenarios, it’s clear why clients are actively seeking out contractors with a proven track record of delivery.”
