Center Parcs accommodation contract goes to ISG

ISG has won a £61m contract for the construction of 625 lodges at Center Parcs new development at Warren Wood near Woburn in Bedfordshire.

The firm beat major industry players including Kier, Leadbitter and Ardmore to the contract.

Work on the 59 week fast track scheme will start in November, ready for the holiday parks opening in the spring of 2014.

ISG’s Craig Tatton, managing director – UK Construction, said: “There has been a great deal of interest in this high profile development and I’m delighted that ISG has emerged as Center Parcs’ contractor of choice.

“Delivering 625 lodges across such a large site over an accelerated timeframe is a logistically challenging undertaking, especially when you factor in the restricted woodland setting and simultaneous infrastructure development works on site.

“Our extensive experience of off-site construction and just in time delivery solutions will prove critical to the success of this scheme, as will be the adoption of direct learning from our Olympic projects, in terms of waste management implementation and fostering positive behavioral change from our workforce.”
