ISG is a leading UK-based construction company with a global reach, including offices across the UK, Europe, the Middle East, The Far East and South Africa.
P&R Morson has worked with the company for the past eight years and the mechanical and electrical installation at two recent leisure centre projects exemplifies the team’s approach and the added value that P&R Morson brings to a scheme.
ISG delivered upgrades to Bloxwich and Oak Park leisure centres as part of a £24 million investment by Walsall Council, involving schemes with 25 metre pools, six court sports halls and 100 station fitness suites. The company engaged P&R Morson to install all mechanical and electrical services in a £3.6 million programme across both buildings involving all heating, ventilation, lighting and power.
“While P&R Morson are competitive on price, it’s the company’s experienced and highly trained in-house team that has underpinned our long-standing relationship.
“The company’s management team takes a collaborative approach and is non-confrontational when it comes to communicating on a job which means that we can work in partnership, making life on site easier and more productive for everyone and working together to address the challenges that occur on all schemes.”
Amongst the challenges on the Walsall leisure projects were design obstacles, an exacting programme and a tight budget.
“P&R Morson was proactive in suggesting value engineering opportunities while remaining compliant with the specification and they were flexible about working hours, helping the scheme to remain on track.
“Much of the work on these two schemes had to be carried out in a live environment to maintain services for local residents and P&R Morson performed very well against that challenging backdrop.”
