ISG has been appointed by medical equipment manufacturer and supplier, KARL STORZ Endoscopy UK Ltd, to undertake a £1.4 million project to expand the company’s Scottish facility.
The 47-week, dual-phased scheme will see ISG substantially increasing office accommodation and demonstration facilities at the KARL STORZ site in Thomas Wise Place, Dundee. The initial phase of the development involves the construction of a 12,900 sq. ft. steel frame office extension, with render, facing brick and cladding to its façade and a section of curtain walling showcasing a new feature stairwell. In order to boost the overall sustainable credentials of the building, the new structure will also include a planted green roof to absorb CO2 and other pollutants, and reduce the impact of surface run off.
The extension will be fitted out to create contemporary open plan office space. Upon completion of this first phase, staff will then relocate into the new accommodation to allow the commencement of the second phase of the redevelopment. During this final 12-week programme, ISG will comprehensively refurbish and reconfigure the existing office building to create a high specification Sales and Demonstration area. The contractor will install a number of new windows to maximise the volume of natural daylight entering the building, as well as replacing all existing glazing with modern, high performance units.
ISG’sAndy Mallice, managing director – Scotland, commented: “This latest win represents a significant addition to our growing client base and further demonstrates our ability to successfully convert opportunities across multiple industry sectors. It is particularly pleasing to support successful international businesses with a strong Scottish presence, and we are confident that these new facilities will further underpin KARL STORZ’s plans for the future.”
Wellwood Leslie Chartered Architects and Chartered Quantity Surveyors, Christie and Partners have also been appointed to work on the project.
Upon completion of the works, matters relating to Finance, IT and Quality and Environmental Compliance will be overseen from KARL STORZ’s operation in Dundee.
