Real estate and development

In a fast-paced world, real estate and development opportunities must be flexible to the changing needs of their communities.

Real estate and development opportunities must provide funders with confidence in committing to capital investments, demonstrate an ethical footprint and provide project predictability.

Exceptional experience across commercial spaces

In today’s market, with increasing end-user requirements, spaces need to be more attractive and flexible than ever before. In a climate where organisations are looking to achieve more with less, the need for certainty of returns and asset resilience is key – meeting these needs is reliant on the best quality spaces which meet the highest environmental standards. 
Our breadth of expertise gives us the ability to deliver a new build project, complex refurbishment or high-quality fit out to maximise the lettable floor area, and configure the space so it is adaptable to changing needs.  
Our work across a wide range of projects, from repurposing office space or retail outlets to building major logistics and distribution centres, means we also provide a turnkey offer for our clients – as demonstrated by our fit out project in the City-Point for ECE in Kassel, one of the European leader of shopping centres. We delivered the food court in the lively 20,000 sqm marketplace including demolition, M&E and fit out works during the centre´s full operation. With detailed planning and a precise time scheduling the team kept the works at an absolute minimum to reduce the impact on customers and other tenants and handed over the new food court to an extremely satisfied customer.

“The Hamburg ISG team stands out for its professional, open, and proactive approach to tasks, contributing significantly to the success of the Hamburg projects.”

Understanding the issues that matter 

From efficient build methods to retrofit solutions and the social impacts that now inform development projects, our dedicated teams understand the pertinent issues, creating high-quality spaces tailored to client need. We know the construction phase presents investment risk, and delivery assurance must win out. 
A case in point is our end user fit out of the individual office levels and the reconstruction of the foyer and roof top of the nine-storey office building “Merrow” in Frankfurt, which took place during ongoing operations. Working above a doctors' surgery on the ground floor required careful planning and close coordination with the tenants and property management team to avoid any disruption.
