ISG wins contract to fit out Kings Cross community centre

ISG has secured a £1.2m fast track project to fit out the newly constructed Q2 Sports Centre in Kings Cross for the London Borough of Camden.   

The company is undertaking the first phase fit out of the new community leisure amenity, providing a two-storey health and fitness suite and associated changing facilities. The 14-week programme sees the contractor transform the striking base build structure into a gym with multiple activities rooms, contemporary changing facilities and a spacious reception area.   

ISG is maximising the social value legacy of its project at the sports centre by collaborating closely with the Kings Cross Construction Skills Centre, which is being temporarily housed at the Q2, whilst its own facility is under construction. Students will benefit from on-site work experience, mentoring and curriculum support, in a tie up that will provide real life insights into contemporary construction practice.

“Enhancing access to quality leisure amenities is a key aim of the Q2 Sports Centre scheme, and we have seized the opportunity to maximise the wider value of our project through active collaboration with the students at the Kings Cross Construction Skills Centre to generate a further positive community legacy,” says Daryl Hardy, divisional director at ISG.
