ROK team forms basis of ISG ‘s new Scottish office

8 Dec 10 ISG has opened a new office in Glasgow, headed up by senior managers from Rok's Scottish business and taken over £30m of work that was being undertaken by Rok before its collapse last month.

ISG will now complete work on Diageo's £86m bottling hall scheme at Leven and £9m cooperage project at Cambus, as well as a £6.7m housing development in Dundee for Home Scotland. The value of the remaining stages to ISG is £30m.

The move to Scotland for the construction, fit out and management services contractor follows the opening of new offices in Cardiff, Liverpool and Newcastle, as well as relocating its Birmingham team into larger premises.

ISG takes over from the failed Rok on the 16,500 square metre bottling hall at the Leven packaging plant and try to get the project back on schedule. Mill O Mains' residents in Dundee will also see the re-commencement of the first phase of a major £45m regeneration scheme, with ISG delivering 65 new homes for rent for social enterprise client Home Scotland.

Craig Tatton, ISG's UK construction managing director, said: "Formalising our presence within the Scottish market has been a long-held business objective and I am delighted that we have been able to achieve this goal and brought along a strong senior management team, which has proved invaluable in our initial successes. ISG's construction business now has a truly national network that supports clients across England, Scotland and Wales.

"There is strong conviction that ISG can establish itself as a major player within Scotland's construction and fit out market by demonstrating excellent industry credentials, exemplary project delivery and a truly customer focused approach. We are committed to making our new Scottish office a successful addition to ISG's existing network, generating prosperity for local communities through employment and training opportunities as well as support for local businesses and the supply chain."
