ISG has secured its first project in the north of Scotland, taking a major contract to build a highly prestigious car showroom in Inverness for Arnold Clark, Europe’s largest independent motor retailer. The project signifies ISG’s growing ambitions to the north of the country, closely following the recent announcement of the contractor’s high profile joint venture with the iconic Tulloch brand.
The fast-track project sees ISG build a 710 square metre Volvo/Skoda showroom with ancillary accommodation and a 112 square metre valet bay facility. Externally, the single storey structure will feature glass and cladding, and a large atrium will be constructed at the entrance to the showroom, whilst a porous paving show area outside will create ample room to display sufficient used cars. The project is due for completion towards the end of the year.
Andy Mallice, ISG’s Managing Director in Scotland, said: “This project is a significant win for the business and further strengthens our position as one of the country’s fastest growing contractors, in a sector which has not been without its difficulties in recent times. Set against the backdrop of the prevailing economic environment, ISG is making major inroads within the Scottish construction market and we are building up a considerable portfolio of high quality projects across multiple industry sectors.”
The Scottish arm of ISG, which is based in Stepps, currently employs more than 70 members of staff.
