The project comprised of the design, remodelling and refurbishment of an existing recently refurbished office building to provide a new secondary school. The works included minor external works and all necessary site investigations and surveys.

The building was a self-contained, detached office building totalling 15,896 sq. ft. over four storeys (ground and three floors) of modern, open-plan office space. The building was purchased by West London Free School in March 2014, with financial support from the Education Funding Agency.

This ten week design and build schedule included for the formation and fit out of, six teaching classrooms, three science laboratories, library, art room, music room, staff accommodation, dining hall and kitchen. Together with the provision of a second fire escape and new mechanical ventilation to the top floor music room.

The 240 student placement facility was handed over on time to the clients 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.
