The framework is expected to be worth £22m to ISG over the four year term, during which time the contractor will build a technical hub and training facility for the Cleveland Fire Authority and four local fire stations in Middlesbrough, Headland, Thornaby and Grangetown.
The first project is the construction of a £6m training and administration centre in Hartlepool.
As the first phase of the redevelopment of the existing Queens Meadow Business Park site in Hartlepool, ISG will build a ‘delta-shaped’ training and administration centre designed by Bond Bryan Architects. On completion, fire authority staff will vacate the existing headquarters building on site, which will be demolished to make way for the new technical hub and training facility that ISG will also build.
The circa 3,000m2 training and administration centre has been designed to maximise the amount of daylight entering the building, with extensive glazed elevations and a full height atrium.
Working with the client’s agent and cost consultant, Bradshaw, Gass & Hope, ISG has been involved in the design process at an early stage.
ISG regional managing director Danny Murray said: “The redevelopment of Cleveland Fire Authority’s Queens Meadow Business Park site is a major investment in purpose-built accommodation to support the service’s vital work in the region. The partnership approach to delivering this key infrastructure brings all stakeholders together, working collaboratively and sharing knowledge and best practice to add value at every stage of the build process. This brings real benefits, getting these vital projects to site more quickly and cost-effectively and leverages ISG’s considerable ‘blue light’ expertise and innovation.”
