CSR

As one of the leading construction companies within London and the South East, we have a responsibility to work with, protect and respect the people and communities in which we operate.

Our approach to CSR is led from 4 areas – Community, People, Environment and Health and Safety.

 

Community

We are a member of Constructing Excellence and consider ourselves a considerate constructor, which means being a good neighbour within the local community. This includes taking steps to minimise disruption to daily life by managing our sites carefully so as not to inconvenience the local community and reducing the perceived impact of our works to provide a calm environment wherever possible. Where construction may have an impact on local people, we ensure that they are fully informed about our work whilst caring for the environment and keeping people safe.

Where possible we actively support communities by offering local job opportunities, by interacting with schools and colleges to promote career opportunities within construction, by supporting local activities, charities and voluntary organisations.

People

We invest in our staff and provide them with a positive work-life balance, supporting family life and encouraging growth and progression. Our staff are our key asset and staff wellbeing features highly in our company objectives.

We offer formal and informal opportunities to discuss roles, training opportunities and mentoring. We encourage our staff to approach us with ideas and requests for training or improvement that may fall outside the key competencies needed for their role.

We are investing in wellness campaigns and have previously looked at subjects including stress and health and this year we are focusing on mental health.

Environment

We are ISO14001 accredited and have an extensive Environmental Policy which embraces the principles of the Considerate Constructors Scheme and industry wide Constructing Excellence principles.  We have in place measurable annual KPI targets for environmental performance (such as Construct CO²) and are working collaboratively with our clients and contract partners to support and deliver new initiatives. Our objectives for 2018 into 2019 are to increase the amount of waste diverted from landfill to 99% and to improve energy efficiency within our offices on a per person basis.

 

Health and Safety

Logan is OHSAS 18001:2007, CHAS and Constructionline certified, demonstrating our ability to deliver to excellent Health and Safety standards. Health and Safety is our number one priority with delivering projects safely and getting all staff home safe at the top of our agenda. As a company we have adopted the principles of successful Health and Safety management set out in the Health and Safety Executive guidance HSG65 ‘Managing for health and safety’. We employ a dedicated Health and Safety Manager, Samantha Booth, who ensures adequate planns, monitoring and auditing takes place on our projects.
