The project:
Situated very close to St. Pancras International (with the Eurostar terminal) and King’s Cross stations, John Dodgson House student accommodation also offers budget summer non-term time accommodation in a central location.

Logan Construction’s development of UCL’s John Dodgson House successfully delivered 49 new bedrooms across two new floors, included refurbishment to elements of the existing six floors.

The works also involved part construction and repair of the existing roof and replacement of windows no longer fit for use.

The challenging project required closure of the building for one year in order to carry out intrusive construction work.

This included the integration of an independent structural frame to support the new roof extension, and the replacement of the existing lift, which was also extended by two floors.

John Dodgson House is an example of how excellent team work across the construction team, client and the professional consultancy team has successfully transformed a student residence. It has delivered improved facilities for students within extremely tight time scales on and within tight budget restraints.
