ISG has completed phase one of University of Wollongong Dubai’s new campus at Dubai Knowledge Park. The first phase of the new high specification 200,000 square feet, seven floor campus development, has seen ISG hand over levels one, three, four and six to the university. These key areas house UOWD’s renowned English Language Testing System Centre, alongside students’ lounges, laboratories and lecture theatres, and the university’s leadership, management, and administration offices. Commencing on site in November 2019, this first phase handover is fully aligned with the fast-track programme, that will see ISG deliver the new campus, ahead of the start of the new academic year in September.

With an absolute focus on the health, safety, and wellbeing of every operative across its sites, and strict compliance with UAE Government’s health and safety guidelines, ISG worked diligently to successfully mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on productivity. Comprehensive measures have included the review of safe travel to and from site, one-way site route planning, agile shift patterns and flexing the number of operatives on site to conform with strict social distancing regulations.

ISG has also recruited dedicated occupational health first responders and introduced daily temperature checking of operatives, as part of a robust package of measures to maintain consistently high productivity rates.

As one of the region’s most innovative contractors, ISG has accelerated the roll out of visualisation technology to reduce the requirement for site visits during the crisis.

Using 360-degree cameras, inspections and validation work have been carried out remotely, increasing efficiencies for operatives and project stakeholders.

Project teams across the territory have also utilised the UAE’s official contact-tracing app to allow timely and accurate identification of any infection risks.
