ISG - Skills Initiative of the Year - Building Awards 2017

ISG has been shortlisted for three Building Awards in recognition of its innovative approach to the issues facing the future of construction.

The company is up for awards in the categories of BIM Initiative of the Year, Skills Initiative of the Year, and Building Magazine Project of the Year.

Organised by Building Magazine, the accolades showcase the best in the industry at an annual awards ceremony hosted in central London.

ISG impressed this year’s judges with its unique approach to key issues in the sector, including BIM (Building Information Modelling) and ways of combating the construction skills shortage.

Head of BIM, Mark Norton, said: “At ISG, we are unique in our approach to the problems facing our industry and look towards technology to streamline our processes, resulting in greater efficiency and agility on site.”

To help tackle the skills shortage, ISG launched WOWEX in January 2017 as part of its work with the National Skills Academy for Construction (NSAfC).

The work experience programme has seen four groups of students come together for a fully immersive week of practical and site-based experience, with the findings being reported back to the industry through the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) later this year.

Since 2014, ISG has delivered more than 11,292 training events and sessions through the NSAfC, as well as creating job opportunities in its supply chain and up-skilling its own workforce.

The third project to be shortlisted is the delivery of Dyson’s new headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, which is up for the Building Magazine Project of the Year.

ISG brought Dyson’s corporate values of innovation, design ingenuity and environmental responsibility to life using the latest construction methods.

The Building Awards 2017 will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 7 November.
