Brogan Group have received a number of strong testimonials from satisfied clients for our work on various projects. Read on to see what our clients have said about our service.
'Brogans have worked closely with the Balfour Beatty team to plan project logistics, build sequence and inform both the cladding, modularasation and internal fitout package scopes.During the pre contract services agreement of the project, early engagement was made with Brogans Group as a preferred supplier, to understand how the hoist could be designed and manufactured to best suit the project needs. One of the primary requirements on the project is the large pre-fabricated bathroom pods which are transported from Italy and distributed directly into the tower from the articulated wagons. To enable this process to function correctly the largest goods hoist (The Colossus) was fabricated oversized to accommodate the largest DDA bathroom pod measuring 4.5x5x4.5m with a critical element being the clear height available once the temporary run off of the tower structure was taken into consideration (coordinated with the assistance of Brogans Group).
The temp structure or common tower is a bespoke design which facilitates the use of 3No. hoists and reduces the number of cladding panels that are to be left out of the initial build. A giant structure, the common tower is pre-fabricated on the ground and installed with one lift via the Tower crane, by a specialist working at height team provided by Brogans. The team are highly trained at working in high risk environments controlling the 8 tonne lift accurately and positioning it in place to allow the distribution of material further up the tower. During installation no loose components are permissible at height, with the Brogan team securing every component with designed lanyards or restraints to remove the risk of falling items. In several locations, Brogans Group have successfully fabricated their own solutions to restrain bespoke components such as landing gates, structural ties and structural legs.'
- Paul Smith, Project Director
'Brogan were personable, responsive and proactive, always considering what was necessary to meet the needs of our project.
Brogan responded very well to everything from general maintenance to hoist breakdown response and they were very much part of the success of this project.
We look forward to working with Brogan again soon'
- Patrick Shaughnessy, Construction manager, St George
IKEA, Abu Dhabi
'I write this email on behalf of all of us from operations team to thank you and your whole team from Brogan for the exceptional works done at IKEA YAS.
From the initialization of this project, your whole team worked tirelessly at site to meet all deadlines & site requirements.
Every team member demonstrated highest levels of professionalism in terms of occupational safety, response times, work schedules, understanding customer needs etc.
We thank you all again and look forward to work with you in future.'
- Anish Thomas, Senior Maintenance Assistant
‘I just want to record that Brogan done a fantastic job at Cornerstone. We had no problems with commercial, safety, programme or temporary work design. I would like to recommend that Brogan be put forward to tender on all Kier Southern Jobs. They are willing to go down to Portsmouth and Southampton, as well as to Kent and Maple Cross. They have management and labour that live on the south coast so will be good for the Solent office.'
- Andy Plail, Senior Project Manager for Kier Construction
‘Wates are proud to have Brogan as a supply chain partner. They were instrumental in the success of Project Alto Wembley from design through to completion of the project. This was a £113million milestone project for Wates which led to further projects, the development of which Brogan are part of our success.
This could not have been achieved without the site team led by Steve Herbert and Pat Cobaj on what was a difficult project due to cladding issues. Their cooperation and willingness to get the job done along with the site team has been second to none.
To add to this success, Brogan won the Wates safety award based on the performance on Alto.’
Well done and thank you.’
- John Connell, Project Director

Ken Taylor, Commercial Manager at Balfour Beatty
"We found working with Brogan to be a pain free experience. The design team were helpful in coming up with the retractable cantilevered decks that we required to over come projecting parts of the building's structure. Jim Casey and his installation team were professional and efficient throughout the project with a very good outlook on working safely. I would certainly use Brogan Mast Climbers again in the future and would have no problem recommending them to others."
Hugh Kirkland, Project Manager at Szerelmey
Battersea Power Station Phase 1
"Brogan Group are providing the 17 hoists on the Battersea Power Station Phase 1 project for Carillion. They won the contract through a competitive tendering process showing innovative solutions to the interfaces with the concrete frame and external cladding. We carried out a factory visit in Europe to view the proposed hoists prior to appointment and believe that we have bought an excellent product with good run time.
Brogan Group are a collaborative contractor who work well with other contractors to achieve project success."
Kenny Ryan, Project Director at Carillion plc
"Having worked with Brogan Group on our Archway Tower Project, it is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial. From our early meetings with Brogans, they were able to meet our design requirements with the construction of a twin mast, twin platform, mast climber to work in conjunction with a 60 metre high scaffold for the external cladding removal. Led by an extremely efficient site management team in Ady Payne and Nevill Guest, they produced excellent productivity in the installation. Their attention to health and safety and dedication to its promotion was singly the best I have seen from a contractor and I have actively canvassed for them to be on all my future projects ."
Darren Breen, Site Manager at Prime Construction
Capitol Way, Colindale
"Working with Brogan Group on this project has been a pleasure from the start, from the early design stage to the actual completion of installation has been a pleasure. This project lends itself to the main use of mast climbers and areas where not achievable, the co-ordination between scaffold and mast climbers to give a complete access has been outstanding with no problem too big that could not be overcome easily by Brogans. Health and Safety is obviously our number one priority and it is refreshing to work with subcontractor who have the same vision and goal, Brogan Group have a very proactive approach to Health and Safety, which to a main contractor is very refreshing”
Ray Sweeney, Site Manager at Shepherd

High level of praise received from BAM Construction Ltd for Brogan's Design Team
"A major strength that Brogan Group offers is from their in-house scaffold design section. This section is particularly strong in the complex façade access arrangements that form a typical requirement for the multi-storey, limited access, city centre projects."
"The 20 Gracechurch Street project has, for two consecutive years, been awarded a Gold Award in the City of London’s Considerate Contractor scheme. Clearly a major part of this is the face the project presents to the outside world and the way in which Brogan Group operated through the two contracts was a very major part of this"
"I first worked with Brogan Group ten years ago and again on several projects since. Each project has been successful and reflects their position as a Category 1 subcontractor"
George Green, Project Manager at BAM
"So pleased with Brogan Group, past records will show that they have always been on projects that I have started up. I would use Brogan Group anytime"
