ISG is successful in winning a contract to build a new innovation centre at the Sky’s Osterley campus in West London. The area under construction covers up to 77,000 sq ft and designed in a way to allow natural light always. The innovation center under planning is a new three-storey building which would be made of hybrid steel and cross laminated timber frame structure.
The roof structure would be a raking aluminum and glass ziggurat façade to allow daylight and a large photovoltaic array to generate emission free electricity. Sky’s new innovation centre is designed in a way to reach the excellent environmental performance rating and reducing embodied carbon. Additionally the contract covers up the environmental standards such as efficient design, reducing waste through prefabrication, and ensuring materials are responsibly sourced.
The construction waste is planned to be diverted from landfill. And ISG will be working alongside the supply chain to eliminate single-use plastic packaging. As part of Sky’s commitment, this process of diversion and elimination respectively is to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2030 while implementing during the construction phase.
