Global professional services firm KPMG has awarded a contract to construction services company ISG to begin a project to fit out the company's new Leeds office in the UK.

Under the terms of the contract, ISG will deliver high-specification accommodation at One Sovereign Square, Leeds city centre, spanning around 60,000ft² of space, across four floors.

KPMG's new building is said to be part of the regeneration of the Sovereign Street area of the city.

According to ISG, the office fit out will target building research establishment environmental assessment methodology (BREEAM) environmental performance rating, and includes a chilled beam cooling system, LED lighting throughout and an advanced building management system.

"The return in confidence within the London office market shows signs of positively impacting activity within some of the UK's major conurbations."

The company will create a reception area and café at ground floor level, in addition to a flexible presentation space and training facility.

Across the first as well as second floors, the majority open plan office accommodation will offer quality, flexible working space for staff.

Comprising a high-end reception area and meeting rooms, the third floor hosts front-of-house areas for clients. It will also feature an outdoor terraced area overlooking the landscaped courtyard below.

ISG plans to complete the project in summer 2015.

ISG UK Fit Out business managing director Matt Blowers said: "The return in confidence within the London office market shows signs of positively impacting activity within some of the UK's major conurbations.

"Our latest regional project for KPMG is significant from a repeat business perspective, and as an indicator of the firm's commitment to key regional markets."

In 2014 ISG completed the fit out of KPMG's new office in Manchester.
