ISG to deliver Edinburgh office and leisure project

ISG has landed a contract to deliver a multi-million pound Edinburgh office and leisure project.

The contract, awarded by Chris Stewart Group, is part of the redevelopment of The Registers, a regeneration of the the south east corner of the Capital’s St Andrew Square.

ISG will create Grade A office accommodation and leisure space across ground and basement levels of the Mint Building. The facility includes an 1860s warehouse, with the facade set to be retained and repaired during the works. A number of adjacent buildings have been demolished as part of the scheme. ISG said it will construct a new steel structure to “seamlessly link” into the existing warehouse building and provide seven floors of open plan office space.

Andy McLinden, MD of ISG’s UK construction north and Scotland business said, “There are encouraging signs of growth in the Edinburgh office market and reinvigorating existing assets is a key trend. Refurbishing and retrofitting existing properties, especially within a heritage context, requires a very specific skillset and high levels of expertise.”

ISG will work on the project with Hoskins Architects, RYBKA M&E consultant and structural engineers Will Rudd Davidson.
