ISG is based in Milan and has been active on the Italian market since 2008, working as a general contractor specializing in refurbishment and fit out. It also offers a range of specialist services in the construction field, including structural modifications, the installation of mechanical and electrical systems and the expansion of infrastructures. ISG’s client portfolio lists local and international organizations across different sectors (finance, the service industry, ICT, telecommunications, petro-chemical, hospitality and retail). Among the most recently completed projects, the fit out of the new Heineken headquarters in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) stands out for the extension and high-quality of the scope of works. The project, designed by DEGW, is located within the Edison Park business centre and encompassed 6,000 sq m, including a comprehensive revamp of five floors and the construction of a data centre. ISG, as general contractor, carried out all builders’ works, including false ceilings, internal partitions, coverings, glazed walls, special joinery as well as the update and completion of mechanical and electrical systems throughout. The concept design of the overall project, agreed with the client’s representatives, took inspiration from the new tendencies in work organization: flexible spaces and transparency. As such, the design entailed the creation of closed offices next to open spaces, phone booths, formal and informal meeting rooms, break out areas and exhibition spaces on every floor. The display of the innovative approach in the design and execution of this project is at its highest on the 7th floor, where an Ale-house has been constructed for Heineken employees, with direct access to a wide outdoor terrace furnished with tables and plant racks. Indeed, the corporate identity is displayed throughout the building and every floor is branded according to each one of the trademarks pertaining to the Group, with structural elements and bespoke pieces of furniture. Realized in a four-month time programme on site, the project of the new headquarters for Heineken represents a successful synergy between the main stakeholders: client, designers and general contractor.
