Despite many challenges facing the project, ISG successfully completed the Sainsbury's Purley Way project on time. Delivery of the project in a busy live trading environment and with unexpected delays caused by the discovery of contaminated waste proved to be a real test.


Two sided extension to front and side elevations.

Scope of works:

 Extension to front and side elevations

  • Reconfiguration of the sales space
  • Extension to existing warehouse, car park and service yard
  • New mechanical, electrical and refrigeration installation
  • Removal of contaminated waste

The Added Value

In addition to a successful CSR initiative where ISG collaborated with Sainsbury’s to create a store challenge, the project also achieved a 36.5 score on their Considerate Constructors audit. This gained the project a performance beyond compliance certificate and a great chance of winning an award at next year’s ceremony.
