ISG wins contract to redevelop Sky’s campus in west London
March 12, 2020 – UK-based construction services firm ISG has secured a contract from media company Sky to build an innovation centre at its west London campus.
The scheme at Osterley involves building a three-storey hybrid steel and cross-laminated timber frame structure to maximise natural light in the 77,000ft² open-plan structure.
The building will be constructed at a site of two former buildings that have already been demolished.
The raking aluminium and glass ziggurat façade leads to a roof structure with lightwell flooding the full height atrium with daylight and a large photovoltaic (PV) array to produce emission-free electricity.
ISG stated that all of the construction waste from the site will be diverted from landfill.
The company added that it will be working with subcontractors to remove single-use plastic packaging during construction as part of Sky’s commitment to becoming net-zero carbon by 2030.
Additionally, ISG will build an adjacent circular pavilion dining building with a CLT pitched roof. The single-storey structure will feature a large commercial kitchen and provides enough space for 450 diners.
The company will also offer hard and soft landscaping design elements.
A landscaping package will see ISG provide a range of hard and soft landscaping design elements.
ISG London construction business managing director Steven McGee said: “Sky is globally recognised as a company at the forefront of innovation, and this latest investment in spaces to inspire and nurture the creativity of its teams demonstrates the company’s commitment to delivering the best possible outcome for its people and its customers.
“People are at the heart of the design for the new innovation centre, which is targeting a WELL Gold certification, as is consideration for the planet.
“The focus around eliminating single-use plastics and reducing carbon are key areas which could have significant positive implications on behaviours and practices across the wider industry, and we see this as a major legacy of the project.”
