Our People – Brynley Ferris, Fire Marshal at DGP Logistics, has taken our step challenge to a whole new level. Last month he achieved 628,491 steps, the equivalent of over 300 miles and winner of our monthly £50 M&S voucher.

He is seen here receiving his voucher from Steve Hawthorne, Project Director at Woolwich Creative District.

We are providing Site Security on 60% of sites throughout the UK where we are providing a logistics package.

Gary McPartland, Divisional Director of DGP Security said “this represents a 30% increase on the previous 12 month period and testament to our ongoing commitment to providing a range of support services to compliment our Construction Logistics package.”

Saheb Dhesi said, “It was an honour to announce and present the CEO of the Year award sponsored by DGP Logistics PLC to Paul Cossell of ISG plc at the 2019 Building Awards at Grosvenor House Hotel. Paul has been doing a fantastic job and fully deserved it. Always a bonus when it’s one of your clients that wins the award you’re sponsoring!

Congratulations to all the winners, especially to our friends at Mace who won the coveted Contractor of the Year award two years in a row!”

Hoardings under construction at Broadwalk House in Appold Street, London, for our client Modus Workspace Ltd. They included an external hoarding, basement hoarding and one in the reception area, erected out of normal working hours.

This is one of a range of services offered as part of our Site set-up and Enabling Works, which also includes: temporary welfare accommodation; access gates; planning and installation of security services; site surveys; temporary electrics and mechanical services.

DGP Logistics is proud to be the sponsor of the CEO of the year Award, at the prestigious 2019 Building Awards being held next week. Congratulations to everyone who made the shortlist in each of the categories and good luck to all the finalists on the night.

A big welcome to our new Operations Manager, Martin Allum. Martin has 23 years’ experience in the construction industry working on a number of high profile projects in the UK, as well as aviation and nuclear. We look forward to working with Martin as part of the DGP Logistics team.

Celebrating Excellence – Sam Yell, Associate Director at Mace has congratulated the DGP Logistics team at Lancer Square for winning yet another award, the Team Safety and Service Excellence Award, for the month of September.

Well done to Christopher Hitches, his team and all involved supporting them behind the scenes.

Six teams from all departments recently took up the Step Challenge in a friendly competition in a bid to improve their health and fitness.

Using a wrist monitor device or mobile phone, all competitors measured the number of steps they amassed over a period of one month. The combined total of steps for all competing teams was an amazing 597,613, the equivalent of 272 miles, or to put it into perspective, the same distance from our head office to Paris!

Congratulations to the winners, the Swashbuckle team, consisting of (left to right) Louise Down, Shaun Welch, Samantha Bates, Mick Doyle and Kelly Buckle. Each member of the winning team received a High Street voucher.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge.

In true Viking style, we say a fond farewell to Lee Goodrum. Lee has finally decided it’s time to hang up his boots, retire and spend more time with his family.

Lee’s barbecue retirement party was a real family affair. Lee was joined by his wife Nicky, son Harry, (who also works at DGP), together with three generations of the Dhesi family and members of the head office team.

Lee was our Storeman and carried out many of our deliveries. We wish him well in his retirement.

Celebrating Excellence – Congratulations to Brynley Ferris for winning the Health & Safety award for September at the Woolwich Creative District project.
