ISG’s UK Construction South team has won a £34m project at RuTC’s Twickenham campus. This is the first phase of a wider £80million masterplan to transform facilities at the London HE institution - and it has been awarded via the Pagabo framework.

ISG will build a new five-storey, concrete framed teaching block, extending to circa of 161,000 sq ft. The striking building will become the college’s focal point for technology enabled teaching courses, and the facilities will include, TV studios, a 3D prototyping fabrication laboratory and digital golf studio. 

Recently we at Pagabo were delighted to attend the topping out ceremony for this project along with members of the team at ISG, RuTC staff and Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Vince Cable. Here are a few photos from the day.

 

The new learning centre will incorporate a full height atrium space, which features internal wood cladding creating an impressive design aesthetic and playing a functional acoustic role in the building - exposed concrete soffits and structural columns are a key design element, with aluminium rainscreen cladding and curtain walling to the structure’s front.

ISG will also create a 160-seater theatre and an art gallery plus a 60-cover silver service dining academy with full commercial kitchen and a bookable restaurant space.

The project is targeting BREEAM excellent and will be completed in February 2020.
