The framework covers a range of projects including fit out, heritage refurbishment and retrofit jobs across existing buildings within the university estate, such as heritage buildings, research centres and laboratories. 

ISG is one of fourteen contractor partners appointed to the framework, for projects valued between £1.2 million to £7.2 million.  

Other low and net-zero carbon projects by ISG in the Cambridge area include the first live decarbonisation initiatives for the Crown Estate, and the Entopia Building, an office retrofit of a former 1930s Telephone Exchange into the new headquarters for the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).  

Nick Oddy, ISG’s director, said: “The University of Cambridge’s Estates Division is one of our most innovative and progressive clients. Their holistic vision for the future, which revolves around environmental, social, and governance values, demonstrates a commitment to promoting leadership and sustainable solutions for the economy.

“We are immensely proud to have been selected to help bring this vision to life. Our role in creating spaces that unite academia and industry leaders, fostering a community dedicated to integrating sustainability into business leadership provides a legacy with significant implications for the future.”
