ISG has secured a £30m contract from investment firm Blackstone to modernise and renovate its Adelphi Building on Victoria Embankment in London, UK.

Under the contract, ISG will deliver about 190,000ft² of office space over six floors of the grade II-listed building, which will be partly engaged during the project.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2015 and involves significant structural alterations to upgrade and modernise the building, in addition to renovating internal light wells.

"By deploying a highly experienced delivery team from the outset, Blackstone has maximised the benefit of our pre-construction and enabling works expertise."

The scheme also involves the replacement of ten existing lifts and the addition of two more, as well as altering the main reception area and introduction of new entrances at levels one and three to boost accessibility.

The renovation work will replace existing smoked glass windows with high-performance clear glass units, and create a new landscaped roof terrace area overlooking the restored glazed light wells.

ISG construction business managing director Alan McCarthy-Wyper said that, with the historical building being part-occupied in a busy central location, the project faces challenges that require a real breadth and depth of technical experience and effective implementation.

"Early engagement is central to this project and by deploying a highly experienced delivery team from the outset, Blackstone has maximised the benefit of our pre-construction and enabling works expertise," McCarthy-Wyper said.

"This collaborative approach at an early stage in the process has proved vital in developing the design and scope of the project, generating important cost and programme efficiencies."
