Construction management company ISG undertook the fit out of Man Group’s new head office on Upper Thames St during 2010. As part of their corporate sustainability strategy ISG engages with communities local to their projects, aiming to leave a positive legacy in neighbourhoods after their time on site.
The ISG team and their subcontractors donated their time, labour and materials to refurbish Downside Fisher Youth Club’s boxing gym and raised funds for the Club through a variety of activities – the total contribution was valued at £41,000.
ISG found that as well as engaging with the youths of Bermondsey and enhancing the Club’s rundown facilities, the project enhanced relationships between their employees and their subcontractors, as well as providing valuable project management experience to junior employees.
Moving forward, ISG is planning to engage with Downside Fisher Youth Club on two new projects, bringing with them different supply chains and client teams who will add further value.
