St Mary’s A&E refurbishment handover

We are delighted to have successfully handed over the A&E department to the client at St Mary’s Hospital.

All refurbishment works were carried out within the live A&E department at one of London’s main trauma centres.

Commenting on the completed project, senior contract manager Colin Hart said: “This has been a very complex refurbishment where everyday has produced a new challenge, working alongside the specialist medical teams within the busy A&E department. The Logan team have worked extremely hard to successfully handover a fully refurbished emergency department to such a high standard of workmanship.”

Logan supports Hopefield Animal Sanctuary

We are delighted to have been able to help Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Essex to rebuild fences, improve public areas and create new plant potters by donating a collection of wooden pallets from our nearby site.

Hopefield Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit organisation caring for around 200 sick, unwanted and mistreated animals. The sanctuary is based in Brentwood, Essex.

The recycling initiative was set up by site manager Darius Narusevicius, who heard about the sanctuary which was located close to the school project that he was managing. Darius commented “I knew that the charity relied solely on donations and wanted to help. We had a collection of wooden pallets on site – I spoke to the sanctuary manager and discovered that they were keen to have the wood to make much needed repairs and improvements for both the animal enclosures and the public areas. It was a great local charity to get involved with and I am pleased that Logan chose to support Hopefield.”

Hopefield cares for a variety of animals including horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks, cats and more recently has become home to smaller animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas.

As a small charity Hopefield relies upon donations and support from volunteers to be able to continue this work.

Brook House School – 2 years on…

We recently had the opportunity to revisit one of our previous projects… 

Brook House Primary School in London – a 2100m² shell and core fit-out project completed by Logan back in August 2015.

It was a fantastic opportunity to see the results of our construction team’s hard work and how it has benefited the local community. It’s brilliant to see the building fully utilised by the school and pupils and it still looks amazing.

Project and stragegy specialist, Christopher Stark commented: “The Logan team remain the ‘high water mark’ for contractors in my experience. Hope we can do another one together soon!”

Project director attends Y9 maths lesson!

Pupils at Becket Keys Church of England School in Brentwood have been eagerly watching their new teaching block develop over the past ten months and as we near the end of the project, we were delighted to be invited by the headmaster to speak with some of the pupils during their maths lesson about the importance of maths in everyday life and how it is very relevant to everything we do on a daily basis within the construction industry.

Project director, Darren Warner led the class of year nine pupils and actively engaged with them, taking them through the construction process and explaining the importance of percentages, ratios, area, volume, trigonometry and pythagoras – giving real life examples of how these mathematical aspects are used during day to day construction.

The talk was well received by the school and Mr Scott-Evans, Headteacher thanked Logan for their efforts. “Thank you so much for coming to speak to my mathematicians today. It was an excellent session and really interesting for us all.

I am sure that the message of mathematics being important really got through… I also think the friendly and open presentation will have given them a very good impression of the construction industry. You were encouraging and warm and I think they will all think very highly of you and Logan specifically and the trade more generally after this.”

Speaking after the lesson, Darren Warner said: “It was a real pleasure to give some year nine pupils an insight into how important maths is in every day construction. They showed a real interest in our project and hopefully this talk has given them some encouragement to pursue a career in construction, and to continue with their efforts in maths.”

The educational session was such a success, that Darren has been invited back to talk at more maths lessons over the next few weeks. At Logan, we actively engage within the communities in which we build and we are proud to have been given this opportunity to work with Becket Keys Church of England School.

Contracts awarded for James Lighthill House & Compass School

We are delighted to announce that following two successful tenders, Logan Construction has been awarded main contractor both Education Funding Authority’s (EFA) Compass School and University College London’s (UCL) James Lighthill House.

Compass School
The aim of the project is to bring the Compass School’s currently out of date 1960’s building up to building regulations and fit for use, offering an excellent state-of-the-art modern teaching facility.

Works include the remodelling and refurbishment of the three storey Block G and the link access to Block F. We will be converting the current reception office into a dining area and changing the status of Block G to become the main school entrance. There will also be some external works.

Speaking about the recent EFA appointment, William Logan, managing director said: “We are delighted to be working with the EFA on the Compass School refurbishment project and look forward to being able to offer both pupils and teaching staff, a safer and much improved school.”

James Lighthill House
We have been awarded the 11 week summer works contract to refurbish the Lower Ground and fifth floors. The works will include replacement floorings and kitchens, fire stopping, replacement doors, electrical works and redecoration throughout.

James Lighthill House provides accommodation for 189 students in flats of five, six or seven. Situated adjacent to both residential and business properties, the building will remain fully functional throughout the summer works.

Upon appointment, William Logan, managing director commented: “Our excellent working relationship with UCL has developed over the years, following numerous successfully completed projects. Our appointment as contractor for the James Lighthill House refurbishment, will further enhance this and we look forward to completing yet another successful project for them.”

Excellent feedback received from Royal Free

Working within a live hospital environment is always challenging, but can also be extremely rewarding. The success of refurbishing a fully functioning department is dependent on meticulous planning, detailed programming and clear and open communications with both the client, key nursing personnel and the construction team.

Our teams work hard to deliver each and every healthcare project with minimal disruption to both the hospital staff and their patients, and as such it is always fantastic to receive feedback from those closest to the works.

“I wanted to share from a personal perspective, my experience of working with the Logan team on the Royal Free ED rebuild. I have the fortune (or misfortune) to have been involved with three different contractors on three different builds. I can say with all honesty, that the way that the Logan team have worked on this build has been exemplary. They have a genuine understanding of the limitations that we put on their works due to our work of caring for patients. More importantly, they demonstrate a pride in the work that they complete and clearly care about the final result. You should be really proud of the team that you have.” Ruth Green, Matron at The Royal Free Hospital.

The new three-storey building is designed to maximise space and usage and includes a new study garden for sixth form students.

The newly designed pupil entrance is intended to facilitate the flow of pupils in and out of the school and develop the connection with the local community.

All construction works have been undertaken adjacent to the main school buildings and we have liaised closely with teaching staff to minimise disruption to daily teaching regimes.

We are on schedule to handover the new teaching block in June of this year.

Royal Free A&E completion of phases 2a & 3a

We have recently successfully completed and handed over the first two phases of the refurbishment project within the Royal Free Hospital London A&E department. The hospital are delighted that we delivered the works on time and with minimum disruption.

This complex multi-phased project comprises the demolition, new build extension, fit-out and refurbishment works within the lower ground floor of the live hospital A&E department.

The completed works within phase 2a included demolition of the existing public toilets and construction of new reception and main waiting area, together with new offices.

Phase 3a works necessitated demolition of minor elements to create a new access corridor from the main waiting area to provide improved access.

The overall construction scheme is to be undertaken within a fully operational occupied 24/7 A&E environment. The challenges are to ensure that all other hospital departments above, below and adjacent to the A&E department remain fully operational throughout the duration of the project.

Logan appointed framework partners with Goldsmiths

We are delighted to announce that Logan Construction is now a contractor framework partner with Goldsmiths University of London.

Located in south-east London, Goldsmiths University specialises in the study of creative, cultural and social subjects. Founded in 1891, Goldsmiths now ranks among the top universities in the country.

Commenting on Logan’s appointment as framework partner, William Logan, managing director said: “It is fantastic that Logan has been selected as contractor framework partner with Goldsmiths University of London. We look forward to working with the university, bring educational excellence to a diverse range of students and allowing Logan to contribute to and strengthen the local communities with possible opportunities of both employment and procurement.”

Logan awarded new Urology Centre project

We are delighted to confirm that we have recently been awarded the contract to build a new, and much awaited Urology Centre, at the Royal Surrey Hospital. The works provide us with another opportunity to partner with the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the delivery of this prestigious scheme.

Royal Surrey County Hospital urology centre by Logan Construction

This world leading centre will span approximately 1600m² across two floors, comprising consultancy rooms and meeting areas, to facilitate patient treatment together with ground breaking research facilities. The new facility will provide significant increased capacity and convenience for people in the south of England.

Royal Surrey County Hospital has been at the forefront of prostate cancer treatment for many years, yet a severe lack of space within the hospital has restricted the ability to offer enhanced care. Prostate cancer patients have suffered long waiting times, diagnostic delays, availability of specialist equipment, fragmented/delayed diagnostic procedures and treatment programmes. Additionally University of Surrey researchers (part-funded by The Prostate Project) lack dedicated accommodation and facilities.

The new highly specialist centre will allow prostate cancer patients to benefit from an integrated service within a high quality environment. It’s anticipated that these excellent working conditions for the medical and nursing staff will encourage the recruitment of further world leading specialists. In addition to prostrate, the centre will also provide leading diagnosis for other urological cancer treatment. Once completed the new centre will release much needed space within the main hospital building which will be reallocated to improve existing services.

Scope of works:
The 65 week project comprises the formation of a two storey new build centre, to provide a centralised hub for the Urology department. Additionally, the proposed building is to provide consultation and treatment rooms, administrative and staff offices, clinical facilities and a new lecture facility.

Constructed on pad foundations, this steel frame building takes on a contemporary style, featuring a curved front, open atrium entrance and is further enhanced externally by copper cladding panels, along with white rendered walls and complementary Atlas Blue facing bricks and a flat roof.

Enabling works include the diversion of existing live utility service cables. The new building hosts extensive air handling and ventilation equipment, along with specialist electrical installations.

Collaborative working and added value:
Having previously successfully delivered a comprehensive surgical theatre project for RSCH, we have an established relationship with the team and a good working knowledge of hospital. This experience has assisted with a prompt efficient start to the project, excellent teamwork, good communications and mutual trust being the benchmark for a successful project.

Key challenges:
With a very tight budget and high specification build we were challenged to consider all options, including an initial comprehensive value engineering exercise to identify best value whilst retaining integrity of design and finishes. We will undertake ongoing monitoring and review throughout the construction phase. Further consideration was given to minimising disruption to patients, staff and visitors during the works as this was a key concern of the Trust. With more than 20 years’ experience working in similar hospital environments, we have established procedures and controls in place to meet these requirements, together healthcare trained operatives.

The logistical challenges of constructing a new building within a restricted occupied hospital site include ensuring the safety of the general public and hospital staff, operating a safe and professional site with minimal impact on the hospital’s adjacent buildings.

In order to do this, we have re-routed pedestrian footpaths and closed the adjacent vehicle access route, ensuring that our site is safely segregated from the rest of the hospital.

We have also been working with the client to relocate departments in adjacent buildings prior to the works starting. This includes logistical moves to relocate the audiology department to ensure that patients would not be effected by noisy works.

Commenting on the new urology centre, Chief Executive, Paula Head said: “The Trust already achieves fantastic outcomes for its urology patients and the new facility will ensure an excellent experience during their treatment.”

“Together, we can realise our dream of creating a true centre of urological excellence. This will benefit not only Royal Surrey’s patients, but people from throughout the UK and beyond.”

“The new centre will be a key referral and information facility as well as an important site of clinical trial development and research for the team of scientists and technicians from the University of Surrey headed by Prostate Project trustee, Professor Hardev Panda.”

You can get involved in this project too…
Partially funded by charity, the Prostate Project are running a ‘Buy-a-Brick’ campaign to raise further funding. Click here to watch the video and find our more, or visit their website.

Logan Construction's Southend Police Station wins sustainability award
Southend Police Station has won the prestigious ‘Public Sector Energy & Sustainability Award 2016’

Contract name: Southend Police Station

Contract address: Victoria Avenue, Southend, Essex SS2 6ES
Client: Essex Police
Project duration: 60 weeks

Description
A refurbishment and new build extension at Southend Police Station. The project comprises of the main police station undergoing a full refurbishment, whilst the existing custody suite was demolished, making way for a new extension to the main building, housing a much needed 30 cell custody suite.

The refurbishment and new extension works are undertaken in three phases and total approx 3,370m2. During the building of the new custody suite, minimal disruption is essential as the main building of the police station was fully operational.

Sustainability Award
Southend Police Station has won the prestigious ‘Public Sector Energy & Sustainability Award 2016’. It was chosen as the winning project due to the Essex Police’s commitment to provide an energy efficient sustainable building that would have a positive impact within its surrounding neighbourhood and the area in which it serves.

Environmentally friendly products have been used as part of the continued commitment to reducing the carbon footprint. Examples of this include the external glazing of the main building and the addition of a solar panel to the custody building.

The old single glazing has been replaced with solar glass double glazing. This innovative product contributes to the retention of (and resistance to) heat within the building, reducing heating and cooling costs. Ceramic graphite paint has been added to surface three of the glazing, which not only limits the views into the building from outside but also gives the original building a modern look.

A new solar panel system will generate the hot water for the entire custody operation.

The vast majority of luminaires are LED based with efficiencies achieving 138 chip lumens per watt, with the luminaire efficiency being 121.4 luminaire lumens per circuit watt. This is double the target figure of 60 luminaire lumens per circuit watt required by Part L2 building regulations. Fittings also include a daylight sensor, meaning the illumination is consistently maintained in conjunction with the natural light of the space. Whilst the initial cost of this lighting system is greater, it is offset by the revenue and carbon savings, reducing electricity use by up to 40%.

The daylight sensors are also being installed in custody for the first time. The intelligent redesign of the building has enabled the retention of some of the original window spaces in custody. In combination with the addition of ‘sun pipes’ for the internal windowless cells in order to provide natural daylight, these solutions further contribute to the reduced lighting costs.

Client cost savings
The new station has allowed Essex Police to save public money across several areas. The remodelling of 49 offices across three floors, into 18 offices and large open plan spaces holding significantly larger numbers of people and effective use of space, will contribute to reduced travel costs and carbon emissions. The project has enabled the closure of three other local stations which will also enable annual revenue savings and a reduced carbon footprint. Products have been carefully selected to enhance value for money. The court building next to the station has expensive limestone cladding externally. At a fraction of the cost, an alternative rain screen cladding has been used that is aesthetically very similar and in keeping with the surrounding buildings. Anticipated savings in utility consumption for the main building is between 35-40%.

In summary
Congratulations to Lee Sims, Arnold Maskell, Stuart Barrett, Pawel Zielonka and all the team for overcoming the extensive project challenges.

“Logan managed and delivered a complex refurbishment project despite numerous challenges faced from it being a partially operational police station.” Patrick Duffy, Head of Building Services Essex Police.

Key challenges:

• Overcoming issues in the ground including freshwater wells and extensive underpinning to the court tunnel
• Logistics and construction of numerous small dimensional rooms with 3.7m high ceilings
• Complex coordination of M&E services
• Intensive amount of M&E services provided within available ceiling voids, splitting the services and providing detectors in the ductwork
• Rain screen cladding
• Access only available via two security controlled doors
• Overall logistics within the site, working in a live police station
• High volume of design changes and variations.

The sheer volume of variations and design changes, together with the logistics of the build, working collaboratively with the police, presented challenges to the team at every stage of the programme which made this a demanding but rewarding project.
