The project

ISG is increasingly recognised as the go-to contractor for highly technical fit out requirements. We have extensive experience in future-proofing businesses with the latest technology including state-of-the-art audio-visual systems and virtual meeting installations such as telepresence and halo rooms, fibreoptic installations, structured data cabling and converged IP networking.

The main challenge was sustaining the building’s live systems while modifying them in specific areas. Maintaining close and efficient communication with the staff was key to our success in overcoming programming challenges. Effective communication with the customer also ensured steady progress, and seamless staff transition into completed spaces, with zero interruption to business, while progressing with fit out works.
