ISG, fit out specialists in Dubai, has been awarded a design and build (D&B) contract to provide refurbishment of Capital Club – the first private business club in the region to be located within leading financial hub, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
The multi-phased scheme will see ISG delivering the prestigious fit out of a 44,000 sq ft space across three levels with a scope of work that includes interior design, construction, engineering services, commissioning, and associated works.
Following a nine-month programme, ISG has since completed design-related work for Capital Club’s facilities such as, meeting and event spaces, a majlis lounge, gallery, private meeting rooms, and dining spaces.
Construction activities are set to commence in three separate phases with a view for completion by end summer 2020. Working within a live environment, ISG will be ensuring minimal disruption to Capital Club’s business operations.
In explaining the project scope, Ian Palmer, general manager of Capital Club said: “The refurbishment of the Capital Club has been on table for the last 18-months and the scope has evolved significantly, and is now a full upgrade of the club’s amenities and back of house facilities, as well as renewal of our building services to increase energy efficiency, and enhance sustainability credentials.”
On choosing ISG for the project, Palmer adds: “ISG has shown an exceptional level of flexibility throughout the tendering process, and offered us a turnkey design and build solution, in addition to their global experience with comparable projects, which we view as a key advantage.”
Commenting on the contract win, Scott McCulloch, general manager of ISG in the Middle East said, “Working closely with the management of Capital Club we have created a comprehensive programme that focuses on quality, efficiency, and certainty of delivery, which is so essential to the club’s operations.”
