Learn more about some of our projects recognised in this year’s awards:

New Welsh Medium School – Gold

The New Welsh Medium School project involved the construction of a new build school for circa 540 students in Rhydyfelin, Pontypridd. Delivered for Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council and procured through the SEWSCAP framework, we created a state-of-the-art teaching and learning facility in partnership with Welsh Government and the 21st Century Schools and Colleges programme.

Scoring highly against innovation and best practice, our site team implemented a number of initiatives, including a hydrogen fuel cell as a substitute for fossil fuel to power site walkway lighting, which proved to be a successful green energy solution on site. 

Supporting local communities was another metric we performed well against, with the site team fostering goodwill and educating on the various opportunities the construction industry has to offer. Lastly, the team received outstanding scores for their care of the environment, including active promotion of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, providing valuable resources to help the industry achieve outstanding environmental standards.

National Cycling Centre, Manchester – Bronze

The refurbishment of the National Cycling Centre for Manchester City Council, via the North West Construction Hub (NWCH) framework, focused on modernisation and operational performance upgrades, involving transforming the track and centre facilities.

Our refurbishment project achieved significant carbon reductions in line with Manchester’s 2038 zero carbon vision, resulting in an estimated carbon saving of around 517 tonnes CO2 per year. Circular economy principles were embedded across the project lifecycle, to reduce embodied and construction carbon. The modernisation of the centre leaves a legacy of social, economic, and environmental value for the people of Manchester and the wider British Cycling community.

During the scheme, a charity cycle event took place in partnership with the NWCH, framework partners and suppliers, raising more than £5,200 for the We Love MCR Charity.

Project Redkite – Bronze

Project Redkite involves construction of two 30 MW data centres, located near London, with the project being the first of its kind to be recognised by the national site awards. ISG started onsite in the summer of 2022 and is scheduled for completion of the second stage of the project in early 2025. The team was commended for their volunteering efforts, which involved supporting local communities during the project build and raising significant contributions for nearby charities. Leading innovation through trialling new products and materials, combined with the wider ISG ethos, heavily contributed to Project Redkite being recognised for a bronze award.

Institute of Neurology, UCL - Bronze

The Institute of Neurology at UCL will become a global hub for neurology, and a state-of-the-art research facility. During the project our team has displayed outstanding support to the wider community, leaving a lasting project legacy. Our social value efforts included offering apprenticeships and work experience, partnering with local charities and hosting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sessions with women in the local borough of Islington. The team partnered with a local college, delivering a talk on International Women’s Day, focused on reducing the barriers to entry for women in construction. With regards to commitment to the environment, the team is using 100% responsibly sourced materials where possible and is ensuring that recycled materials are put straight back into the local community.
