Find out more about ISG
ISG Middle East is part of ISG Plc, the award winning, $US 2 billion fit out and construction services business based in London. ISG now employs 2,500 people globally in 31 countries. Our core activity has always been commercial interior fit out, where we have a 25% market share of the London market.
However ISG offers more than just delivering great office space. The broader sector capability of ISG is illustrated by the successful hand over of the Olympic Velodrome, the first new stadium to be completed for London 2012, while at the same time during the past year, helping our global retail clients to open 637 retail banks, 141 food retail outlets and 123 high street and shopping mall retail projects.
Within the Middle East market, ISG does not offer a design service, however we are involved with successful design and build projects collaborating closely with the best design firms. Testimony to ISG client commitment is that 70% of our activity is repeat business.
This month ISG is sponsoring the Student Challenge at Index. To provide a focused service for our retail clients we have established ISG Middle East retail division. This year wewon Contractor of the Year at the Retail and Leisure Awards and 2011 Fit Out Company of the Year at the Mixology Awards in London.
We have just moved to Sama Tower on SZR, Dubai which gives our staff a terrific work environment easier access and communications with most of our clients within the Dubai central business district. Recently we have established an ISG office in Cairo. In addition, we are currently setting up our Qatar office which will be opening in November 2011.
Consistency is what we aim to deliver for our clients so that they know what they are going to get from ISG. Delivery of great space every time. We have stability with flexibility.
Being part of the larger ISG group gives us capacity to respond to challenging technical projects and our geographical coverage allows us to respond to multinational clients on a global basis. At the same time we are responsive locally. ISG Middle East is set up as a fully functional business with full support services. Our local staff have a clear understanding of the specific requirements of operating within the Middle East region.
We recently picked up the International Project Award at the British Safety Council (BSC) awards ceremony. This award was in recognition of ISG excellence in Health and Safety standards achieved on a special project for a global oil and gas company in Dubai. This was the first award of this kind for a project within the UAE.
ISG is completely committed to health and safety, and we always aim to bring our high global standards to all of our work within the region. It is this global consistency that sets us apart.
In UAE during the past year we have recently completed projects for Mubadala, Yahsat, Pfizer, Siemens, Philips, Exxon, Bristol Myers Squibb, RBS, and Latham & Watkins.
Currently, in the new financial district on Sowwah Island, Abu Dhabi we are working on six commercial office projects. We are also actively working directly for the developer on Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi. The pipeline of new opportunities to work with our global clients is still evenly balanced between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The Qatar projects next year will mostly be for existing ISG clients.
