ISG moves to Tomorrow

Multidisciplinary construction firm ISG has taken an 8,500 sq ft lease at the Tomorrow building as it prepares to relocate its Manchester office from Exchange Quay.

The company will relocate its Manchester-based team from its existing facility at Building 1 on Exchange Quay, alongside Trafford Road, to move to its new office in MediaCityUK.

The building, designed by Chapman Taylor, was completed in 2016 and other occupiers include Global Capacity, StreamAMG, Fuzzy Duck Creative, and ZEAL Creative. Alongside its commercial tenants, the building also includes a 112-bedroom Premier Inn on the top four floors, and the 6,000 sq ft Ziferblat co-working space at ground and mezzanine level. The building is owned by Peel and Legal & General Investments.

ISG’s new office will have capacity for around 60 staff, and the company has taken 10-year lease on the space.

ISG’s move, which will take place in March, follows two senior appointments in the last nine months. Paul Munro joined as regional director for the North West, working under current North head Andy McLinden, from Carillion in June last year.

Paul Cook has also joined as senior business development manager from fellow contractor Galliford Try.

Munro said he expected the North West business to hit a turnover of £80m, and was targeting revenue of more than £100m by 2022.

Projects ISG are working on in the region include a £13m 114-bed aparthotel for operator Roomzzz in Manchester’s Corn Exchange, due for completion in the coming months, and a £39m mixed-use hotel and student accommodation regeneration scheme at Liverpool Lime Street for client Ion.

Munro added: “We have established a strong reputation as an innovative and technology-led contractor across the public and private sectors, with a high-profile presence on the North West Construction Hub.

“We have delivered a number of projects at MediaCityUK over the last five years, and have closely watched and admired the transformation of this area under the stewardship of Peel Media. It was therefore an easy decision to relocate to the Tomorrow Building and MediaCityUK, as a thriving hub and the perfect place to support our ambitious regional growth strategy.”
