Yeah quite a bit was missing - Especially some Skyscraper complexes - but as SE9 was saying, it's more to do with Crossrail than anything.

ISG confirms £125m London UBS fit out contract

ISG has confirmed it has taken the largest London office fit out contract of the last twelve months.

As tipped by the Enquirer in December, the firm has secured the £125m project to deliver the new UK headquarters for UBS at 5 Broadgate ahead of rival fitout specialist Mace/Como.

The new office building is currently under construction with Mace acting as construction manager.

ISG is scheduled to start work on site at the start of 2015, following a 12-month pre-construction period.

Banking giant UBS will occupy the 1.2m sq ft scheme, which is currently under construction with Mace as project manager.

Appointed under a construction management form of contract, ISG will deliver 700,000 sq ft of high-specification commercial office accommodation for the global financial services firm.

The building will house up to three trading floors, enabling UBS to consolidate its London trading operations within one building, an auditorium, large executive area and a range of open plan and cellular office space.

David Lawther, ISG chief executive, said: “Following such an exceptional year’s performance for our London fit-out business in 2013 with a win of this scale and prestige is a tremendous result and further reinforces our position as the sector’s lead contractor.

“Reassuringly, confidence is returning to the London office market as a whole, and in addition to securing many of the capital’s most high-profile schemes, we have maintained and built on our reputation for delivering exceptional fit out solutions across all value bands.”

dang - the contract still went to Bombardier?? They absolutely wrecked the new signalling system plan for the tube, failed every target and deadline set (claiming it too complex years down the line), and walked off witha few hundred million without delivering.

Bombardier was the attractive option given that they're building the units in Derby.

Crossrail will transform rail transport in London, increasing capacity by 10%, supporting regeneration and cutting journey times across the city.

The Crossrail route will run over 100km from Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west, through new tunnels under central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.

200m Trains capable of carrying 1500 passengers 24-trains an hour service at peak times
