It is one of the final fit-out contracts to be let for the high-rise office block, better known as the Cheesegrater. ISG’s client is Brit Insurance, whose new UK headquarters is to be in the building.
ISG has been contracted to deliver a Cat B fit-out across five floors, totalling 66,000 sq ft. The contractor will create majority open plan accommodation across levels 16 to 18, including the provision of meeting space, break out areas and the installation of a large feature staircase between the three floors.
Across levels 39 and 40 of the building, ISG will install formal client meeting space, creating a new reception area and installing a helical staircase to link the two floors. The mechanical and electrical services specification includes specialist lighting solutions and an upgraded building management system (BMS).
Matt Blowers, managing director of ISG’s UK Fit Out business, commented: “With over 90% of The Leadenhall Building now let, our expertise delivering live environment, multi-level projects in high-profile office developments will prove essential to a successful outcome. Our appointment at an early stage in the scheme, through a two-stage tender process, has proved highly beneficial in navigating the project’s complex logistical challenges – enabling the development of innovative solutions to deliver this key win for ISG.”
