Southern Construction FrameworkFor the SCF, ISG has delivered projects in education, healthcare, sports, leisure and office sectors, and for the emergency services across earlier versions of the framework. 

Examples of our work include a new build, three-storey 'lifestyle centre' at Petroc College in Barnstaple, Devon, construction of the North Devon Enterprise Centre, now known as Node and completion of the new Hamilton College SEMH school, formerly Phoenix College, in Reading. 

The framework helps public sector bodies to achieve a fast route to market, that is OJEU compliant and cost effective.
