Client is Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP), a long-standing ISG customer. This contract follows a previous £6.5m project at the site.
ISG completed the fit-out of Building 1 for tenant BP last year and is now set to focus on Building 2 after the oil company agreed terms with SWIP on additional office accommodation at the business park.
ISG will extend the three-storey building, strip out existing accommodation and re-fit it with new mechanical and electrical services to achieve a BREEAM excellent environmental performance rating.
The project involves extensive structural works, which sees ISG enlarge the external envelope of the building to create a double height entrance lobby. Inside, floor space will be increased by 35% to 135,000 sq ft.
The existing atrium will be converted to form new accommodation in the central core with two smaller atrium enclosures. ISG will also construct new stair cores in each corner of the building, one of which will serve the basement level, where the space will be remodelled to create shower and changing facilities with a shell and core fit out to accommodate a gymnasium at a future date.
Externally, ISG will refurbish the existing building façade and upgrade the roof structure, deliver an attractive landscaping scheme and create new car parking, secure bicycle and bin store enclosures.
ISG’s Paul Cossell, managing director of fit-out, said: “The scale of the structural work involved at Bedfont Lakes elevates the complexities of the project. However, ISG’s excellent track record in remodelling, extending and retrofitting existing buildings makes us the ideal delivery partner for such a high profile scheme.”
