ISG has completed a 12-week fit out in Dubai for the University of Birmingham's first international campus.

ISG Middle East has completed the Phase 1 fit out of the 2,601m² campus.

A 180-seat lecture theatre, laboratory classrooms, and a computer room were delivered. All classrooms and lecture halls were fitted with unspecified digital infrastructure to make connectivity simple and straightforward.

ISG’s Middle East general manager Scott McCulloch, said: “Phase one of the campus provides a great showcase of the fantastic facilities and ambition that the University of Birmingham has to create a global centre of education excellence in Dubai.

“The project has been an excellent example of the very best collaborative practices in action and we are delighted to have played a role bringing this great university to a new home in Dubai.”

ISG said the University of Birmingham was planning Phase 2 expansion of the premise, to increase the capacity of students at the Dubai campus.

No details were given on the nature of building works that could be launched to expand the campus that already accommodate hundreds of students.

McCulloch added that work on the University of Birmingham’s Dubai campus was a “major vote of confidence” in the company, which recently hired a business development director for the Middle East as the company looks to grow its fit-out operations in the region.

Dima Qumsieh was appointed in December 2017 to grow the company’s healthcare, leisure and hospitality, engineering and technology-led corporate office fit outs.

Her primary focus has been ISG Middle East’s strong grip on Abu Dhabi and Dubai, as well as the Northern Emirates.

The company has made good progress on projects this year. In February it completed the refurbishment of Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Sports City Stadium, one of the oldest sports facilities in the UAE.
