Tradespeople from East London and the surrounding communities were recently invited to a free Constructionline event to learn about upcoming work opportunities, including a new £3 million school extension in Brentwood.
Following our recent appointment as principal contractor for the Brentwood project at Becket Keys Church of England School, the Logan team welcomed the opportunity to meet with local suppliers and tradespeople with experience in the education environment and develop their ever-growing supply chain within the local and surrounding area.
The school project works include creating an extension to the school and a new timber-frame three-storey teaching block, in addition to the refurbishment of indoor and outdoor community spaces. Works commence June 2016
Peter Harkin, business development manager at Logan Construction, said: “We find these ‘Meet the Buyer’ events an excellent opportunity to engage with and encourage our Local Labour policy. The Becket Keys project is a significant investment for the local community and a fantastic project to be involved in. We are keen to work with a variety of SMEs in the area to help us bring the scheme to life.”

Logan Construction is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Kinetic Foundation Trust, who recently took a team of young male players out to participate in one of the most prestigious youth soccer tournaments in the United States, the Dallas Cup. The team then travelled to New York, to play three friendlies against MLS sides.
The Dallas Cup is prestigious international tournament, which has in the past featured Liverpool and Real Madrid amongst others, even our own David Beckham has played there, and for the boys taking part in the team, the experience is potentially life-changing. As a Company, Logan is very proud to be able to support the Kinetic Foundation Trust and give the young boys an experience of a lifetime.

We are pleased to be working again with Imperial College London on a £900k project to refurbish under-utilised areas to form new laboratory facilities. The facility requires a perimeter barrier with a separate entrance and some procedural space (2-3 small rooms).
As part of the company’s development plans we have recently opened another office based in Maidstone, Kent. Following the acquisition and conversion of a former car sales showroom, we have moved into one of the 2,500 sq ft business units.
With the planned growth in our business, our head office in Eltham was reaching capacity and we decided to relocate some back office activities, whilst providing our operational teams and Kent based people with spacious new office accommodation.
Managing Director, William Logan commented “I’m delighted with the new facility as I’m sure our people are. This consolidates our phased growth while offering greater potential for the future.”
This is another opportunity for us to work together with the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust on the £1.6m refurbishment of the Markus Centre.
The works involve the conversion of the existing ground floor in to a chemotherapy day unit. The existing third floor converted into an outpatients unit including alterations and extensions of the existing mechanical and electrical services and associated builder works.
We are delighted to have been awarded an opportunity to work with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust on this £1.7m project comprising the remodelling and refurbishment of the existing manufacturing Pharmacy Aseptic and Civas suites to provide a facility which achieves MHRA compliance.
Following extensive operational planning, including wind and weather considerations, Logan Construction together with Eco Modular Buildings and in conjunction with Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, jointly agreed to proceed with the installation of new modular offices during the weekend period commencing 16th January.
The modular offices were constructed off site with 12 separate ‘wide load’ sections transported to site and temporarily parked in the authorised highway allocation. A large, 500 ton lift, telescopic mobile crane was positioned and installed within the hospital service area, assisted by a service crane, prior to delivery.
Once final checks were completed, the lift programme commenced at approximately 19.30 hours with works scheduled to be undertaken throughout the night. The 12 modular sections were lifted into place and successfully installed on a prepared area of the existing flat roof over the main A&E hospital entrance.
During the coming weeks new entrances will be formed to join the new shell building to the existing hospital, whilst an extensive programme of works is undertaken to fit out the modular structure to form new office accommodation for the A&E administration team.
Commenting on the weekend’s crane lift and modular building installation Logan’s Project Manager, Stefan Caraba, stated ‘’The whole lifting operation of the modules provided by Eco Modular in conjunction with J&M Cranes has been successfully completed on time. Early planning of the whole process together with the active participation of all operatives involved has proved successful and the 12 modules are in place and ready to receive final fit-out. We would like to thank all parties involved that helped make the lift a success.’’
Our Managing Director, William Logan, has just confirmed that the company will (subject to audit) exceed this year’s £30m budget expectations.
William commented: “I’m delighted that the company’s commitment to continuous improvement, together with the professionalism, tenacity and loyalty of our staff is significantly reflected in our financial performance.’’

Logan Construction is delighted to be working in partnership with Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. The Emergency Care Pathway main works Phases 2 to 5 comprises the £17m refurbishment and remodelling of the Accident and Emergency department at St Thomas’ Hospital.
We have recently completed and handed over the first of four separate phases that we are undertaking. This comprised a footprint of approximately 2,300 m² which represents approximately 40% of the scheme as a whole.
The works were undertaken with the balance of the A&E department still functioning around it on a 24/7 basis and the logistical challenges were therefore paramount in the approach that was taken. With a very restrictive regime for any noisy works, the programming and forward planning aspect of the project was critical together with the flexibility to manage the unexpected aspects that a live hospital A&E environment can suddenly produce.
Along with general refurbishment and upgrade works, this phase of the project focussed on the paediatric A&E provision and the formation of a temporary main reception facility that will ultimately be converted into its permanent use once the new main reception area is completed as a part of the phase that we are currently working on.
Based in Stratford the Sir Ludwig Guttmann Health & Wellbeing Centre was originally constructed to provide medical facilities for the 2012 Olympic athletes.
We have just reconfigured the top floor to provide a new 26 chair Dental clinic. The new facility offers medical students the opportunity to develop their skills in a learning environment.
This £1.3m refurbishment project included substantial new mechanical & electrical services together with environmental improvements to facilitate the fit out of the high specification dental facilities.
We have recently completed an extensive refurbishment project for the London Borough of Camden to extend and upgrade the existing public mortuary.
This £1.7m project included enhanced working facilities and improvements to the public areas with new entrance and reception area.
We recently successful handed over the newly converted Royal Free School in Hammersmith. The 240 student placement facility was handed over on time to the client’s complete satisfaction.
‘Logan Construction did on outstanding job on a refurbishment scheme for the West London Free School. The programme was condensed at only 10 weeks and throughout the construction period and beyond, Logan Construction was highly responsive to the needs of the school.
Logan staff expertly managed a number of stakeholders including school leadership staff, the EFA and the technical advisers. Emails and phone calls were promptly returned, details were ironed out and no technical challenge was left hanging. We’re delighted with the results. The building is on time, on spec and on budget.’
Sarah Gore, Operations Director, The West London Free School Academy Trust
