No9 Millbank

Even before we completed the show apartments, we knew we were working on a very special project and MPG are proud to have completed No 9 Millbank which graces the banks of the River Thames in the heart of historic Westminster, a landmark residential address that captures British style perfectly.

Situated within the impressive Art Deco themed former ICI headquarters, with original chrome and timber features throughout, on the upper levels of Millbank Residences, the heritage apartments celebrate a bygone era of craftsmanship and style.

MPG personnel hand made all of the exquisite cornices and roses individually in their North Kent factory and fitted them seamlessly to match all of the original features, including the arch windows and curved ceiling, reminiscent of an Elizabethan Hall.

Only by working with our other experts and managers could we have achieved such a perfect quality finish to all dry wall, plastering, GRG, and ceilings with a contract value of £10 million within these pristine completely refurbished apartments.

This is the ultimate testament to our dedicated staff and we would like to thank them all, including our fellow Subcontractors and the entire St Edwards team.



MPG Safety Statistics

MPG are proud to have achieved another year without a RIDDOR and only one minor accident in the last 12 months.

Clients, managers and operatives have all worked together to achieve this tremendous result and we look forward to another safe year in 2023.


5 Million Hours RIDDOR free

The Chelsea Creek Project has achieved 5 Million RIDDOR free hours.

MPG have been part of the St George, Chelsea Creek, Imperial Wharf Project for many years, currently on blocks G and H, previously Block F and prior phases and are proud to be an integral part of it's fantastic Safety Culture.

This is a great achievement which is thanks to all the hard work put in by the entire team.

Workers on site say this site is among the best they have ever worked on, the attention to detail is remarkable and several areas stand out including excellent welfare facilities, the public reflection of the site,  cleanliness and willingness to work together, workshops presented such as Working at Height , perimeter and fall protection, logistics and recycling and extremely well planned exclusion zones.

The team at MPG , led by our Project Leader Terry, always put Health and Safety first and make sure they look after not only themselves, but everyone on site, collectively creating a safe place to work.

Terry summed it up: "It's a pleasure to work on a well-planned and structured project. MPG along with St George pride themselves on working safely and co-ordinating with all those on site. Congratulations, to all of our onsite operatives, who listen and participate in ensuring everyone is kept safe and working in a pleasant environment"

World Suicide Prevention Day 2021

Construction Workers have the highest rates of suicide in the country and today MPG are taking time out to recognise World Suicide Prevention Day which is on the 10th September each year.

MPG recognise suicide is a complex and deeply personal issue and the most practical thing available to all of us is to encourage conversation and listen actively.
MPG are showing everyone the short video today "On the Edge - Suicide Prevention" and inviting other trades to do the same. Helplines are displayed around all of our sites and through organisations like the Lighthouse Charity, we have trained Mental Health First Aiders and encourage all of our personnel to take time to look out and listen without judgement to reduce the historical stigma associated with Mental Health illness, including strong suicidal thoughts.

Michael Gavin commented: "A recent study has found male suicides are now at their highest level in two decades and suicides peaked in the 44 to 55 age category, In construction we lose two workers every single day to suicide! We all have a responsibility to up our game to enable those in need to have the resources available to them for much needed help. If these deaths were accidents on sites we would be putting measures in place to prevent them. Just because these deaths mainly happen away from site does not negate our responsibility ! As an industry we must come together to double our efforts in our endeavour to ensure there is no stigma attached to mental health illness and asking for help is a sign of strength".

500 RIDDOR Free Days

After a Directors safety meeting involving MPG and fellow sub-contractors, the Mace team at Greenwich organised a BBQ for the whole site in recognition of reaching 500 days RIDDOR free. This is a great milestone and everyone remains committed to helping maintain the highest possible standards. Supervisors continue to put operatives to work safely and continuously check the MACE 4 steps to safety are being followed.

Along with other sub-contractors, MPG have attended the Safety First Second Nature workshop which has increased awareness of many safety issues such as:

• Promote and hold safety conversations
• Engage everyone in 'Safety first. Second nature.'
• Enhance knowledge of what is expected of our people and supply chain
• Embed tools and techniques such as the Four Steps and OEI
• Don't walk by

Ken Edwards, MACE Project Director said "Well done to all who contributed and attended the BBQ to mark our 500 day RIDDOR free achievement. Providing we remain truly focussed on putting Safety First, our operatives will continue to go home safe every day."



Quality Assured at Southbank Place

Following a recent visit by Canary Wharf Contractors Executives to the Southbank Place Project, MPG were highly commended for the quality of workmanship and finishes on the project. MPG are responsible for all drylining, ceilings and decorations packages over two blocks comprising of 380 apartments with a contract value over £8 million. Thanks to all our dedicated staff and operatives for ensuring we deliver another quality product for our clients.





MPG use over 5000 tonnes of plasterboard each year and incorporate several systems to ensure we send as little as possible to recycling centres and reduce labouring costs. Plaster board is not considered hazardous waste but is readily recycled and therefore must be segregated from other waste streams.

MPG order board cut to size, load out our boards to an exact area by area guide, to reduce double handling and damage. We adopt a Get It Right First Time Policy in order to minimise the waste generated by remedial works. By incorporating these procedures, we have saved an additional £135,000 in material, labouring & making good costs.

It is MPG Policy to handle our own waste stream whenever possible, which allows us to select the best waste carriers, accurately measure the amount of waste generated and carry out waste reduction exercises which can be analysed and reported upon via KPI's.

In order to bring this message home to all our managers and operatives, we have adopted a weigh station for small offcuts as well as a recycling area to construct baffle boxes from large offcuts, resulting in an even greater reduction of plasterboard waste.

Michael Gavin , Managing Director commented " We are delighted to be working again with the Canary Wharf Contractor's team that we helped to deliver the 20 Fenchurch Street project.

Southbank Place is a Joint venture with developers Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar.

A mix of offices, homes and retail space will integrate with open and attractive public areas, while new pedestrian routes will connect nearby Waterloo Station with the South Bank of the River Thames. A widened Chicheley Street will open up the approach to the London Eye, while a 'city square' at the heart of the scheme will provide open space and help people move around the area.

The well-known Shell Centre Tower will remain the centrepiece of the new site, occupied by Shell which is taking a further 245,000 sq ft of space. The Tower will be complemented by eight new buildings, one of which will incorporate new offices and trading floors for Shell. Approximately 800,000 sq ft of office space (including the Shell Centre Tower), along with around 80,000 sq ft new retail units, restaurants and cafés, will be accompanied by approximately 800,000 sq ft of residential space incorporating up to 790 new homes, including affordable housing. The development is planned for completion in 2019.

The proposals for the development incorporate a highly efficient energy centre which will reduce the carbon footprint of the site. The system will be designed to interconnect with a district heating network being explored for the wider South Bank area.

Canary Wharf Contractors will be Construction Manager for the project.

MPG Apprentice wins UK wide Gold Medal

Congratulations to Sean Dooner, part of the MPG Apprentice scheme, who has won the Gold Medal in Plastering and Dry Lining in the World Skills UK competition.

After winning the regional heat in Leeds in June, Sean spent four days at the NEC Birmingham Skill Builds Show, sponsored by the CITB and British Gypsum, competing against other finalists around the UK.

Sean demonstrated his skills in Drylining, taping and jointing and plastering which he has gained from training at Barking College and on MPG sites in Central London including Battersea Reach, Burdett Rd and lately the Canary Wharf project at Wood Wharf.

After several years working as a carer, Sean started working as a labourer on the MPG/ISG Aldermans House site. Knowing that Apprenticeships are for people of any age, MPG offered Sean, who left school over 20 years ago, a training contract, so that he could further his skills and become a Dry Liner under the MPG training scheme, with the help of the CITB and BDC College.

Over the last year Sean has worked with MPG and attended several training courses including British Gypsum and DULUX.

MPG have run an apprentice scheme for several years now in conjunction with the help of our colleagues including CITB, the FIS, London Borough Councils, Canary Wharf, Berkeley Group, BDC and CONEL College, and many others, and are looking forward to expanding our scheme into a Training Academy.

Michael Gavin, Managing Director of MPG said "It's extremely satisfying to see the potential in people identified and then realized through good mentoring and investment. Sean deserves all the plaudits he gets, hard work & dedication once he was giving an opportunity has resulted in this fantastic achievement."

MPG invests in new and improved PPE

MPG invests in new and improved Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

After extensive research into improving it's Personal Protective Equipment, MPG have identified EVolite Helmets as the most resilient and suitable on the market while Stealth 9000 safety glasses are deemed a superior safety spectacle. MPG's commitment to improving Safety and Health for all its staff and operatives is not about complying with legislation but going the extra mile and providing the optimum in PPE technology.

The safety helmets and glasses are made of high quality materials and while they cost in excess of three times the standard PPE alternatives, the directors of MPG had no hesitation in making it company policy and that all staff and operatives be provided with the upgraded equipment.

The key features of the new equipment are outlined below.


helmet1 helmet2

The EVOLite® Skyworker™ helmet has a suspension system and shell structure that has been designed to be used for industrial, mountaineering, rescue and leisure activities. Meeting the EN12492 standard. A helmet complying to the mountaineering standard is impact tested with two 5kg strikers. A hemispherical striker is dropped from 2 metres onto the crown of the helmet and a flat striker from 500mm on to the front, rear or side by tilting the headform to 30°. In all cases, the transmitted force through the neck of the headform must not exceed 10kN. Two penetration tests with a 3kg pointed striker are also performed within a 50mm radius of the helmet's crown without making contact with the headform.

Feedback from staff and operatives was that the new hats were lighter, comfortable, and the 4 point chin strap allowed a better fit and overall were more practical.



The Stealth™ 9000 is a lightweight safety spectacle, weighing just 25g, with a wraparound 9 base curve Polycarbonate lens. The slim stylish temples have been co-injection moulded with soft rubber to increase grip and provide excellent comfort levels. All of the Stealth™ 9000 safety spectacles come with class 1 optical lenses and block 99% of ultraviolet radiation.

Feedback from staff and operatives was that sports style flexible rims were more comfortable than the traditional glasses, there is no slippage when wearing the glasses as the soft nose bridge was adjustable , The anti mist and anti scratch features were a major positive.


Brand MPG

MPG staff are now proud to wear branded jackets, jumpers and polo shirts as well as adopting the new style safety helmets with a safety strap and branded safety glasses.

MPG - Key Performance Indicators

KPI - NLE.jpg

A recent extract from our client's assessment of our performance at the New London Embassy. Congratulations to all the team involved in the project and in particular for our KPI score relating to Health and Safety - keep up the good work.


MPG Invest in Power Lift Equipment

MPG working with Stark Arvid have invested in new power lifting trucks and trestles. The investment in the region of twenty five thousand pounds is in support of MPG’s health and safety initiatives and in particular to minimise manual handling of heavy loads of plasterboard. The equipment is currently in operation at the New London Embassy and Abel House projects and has been welcomed by clients and operatives. At the point of delivery the powerlift truck enables the boards to be transported through the site directly to the work face. The truck allows a single person to load up to 1200 KG of plasterboard . The electric drive system has traction in both rear wheels which allows it to manoeuvred across rough surfaces and reduce the load on the user. When plasterboard is taken into the building the power lift truck is a natural link between the In lift Frame, as it easily fits under , and the Trestles where the plasterboard is stored ready for installation. The stacking of plasterboard horizontally on the trestles miminises the risk of boards falling that is common when stored vertically and not secured. The battery within the Power Lift Truck will typically last a normal working day and is easily rechargeable.


t1 t2t3


The Trestles allow the materials to be stored off the floor area and the boards can be stored in the work area at the correct working level. The use of the trestles free up the trucks for other needs. The benefits of using the Trestles are ease of movement, less strenuous lifting or risk of trips and falls, increasing overall safety levels. When Trestles are not in use they are easily stored on a Trestle Stand that holds up to 100 Trestles.

Thanks to Mark Grogan and Michael Gavin for organising a great Friday night out.


Face Fit Testing Training

MPG have recently carried out training for all project staff in Face fit testing. As part of MPG's continuous improvement initiative in site safety and occupational health this training has been welcomed by clients and operatives alike.

facefit1 facefit2 facefit3

The HSE as part of their wider communication highlighted the risk of disease from overexposure to dust with the result of individuals suffering from disabilities and even death in some instances. The idea of the Face Fit testing is to understand that each face is shaped differently and therefore each mask is to fit each individual. The mask must have an effective seal to ensure there is no ability for dust particles to be inhaled.

The training focuses on testing each individual wearing a mask after they have been trained to correctly put the mask on and replicating a scenario of movements that would happen in a normal working day. Bitrex, a harmless substance. is released into the hood of the mask they are wearing to test the individual fit - any failures in the fit an alternative mask is then tested until the correct fit is achieved.

20 Fenchurch St - Old and New

The ultra modern "Walkie Talkie" building is looking magnificent as it nears completion, but hidden away around the corner is an equally incredible structure. St Mary-at-Hill Church ( is built on consecrated land dating back to the 12th Century. The Church was severely damaged in 1666 (the Great Fire started a few hundred yards away) and completely renovated by 1677 at the cost of £3,980. Another fire in 1848 damaged the ceiling and interior walls,renovation followed, only to be ruined in 1988 by yet another fire. Restored again, visitors are very welcome, and even allowed to eat their sandwiches in the Church during lunchtime Organ Recitals.

Now in 2013 MPG workers are giving up their time to restore the remaining internal areas of the church. Colin Wells, Andy Baker, Dave Butcher and other members of the team will be starting work in the next few weeks and we look forward to publishing pictures "before and after". Watch this space!

Many of the flats are selling at £2.5 million and above, and working in conjunction with other trades, MPG have performed consistently well, thanks not least to Project Leader Joe Adams and colleagues. On hearing the news Joe wrote: "In the first instance I would like to say I have enjoyed working with a great team on this project and would like to thank them all. The quality of the finished apartments within this building is outstanding which is visibly noticeable but also behind the scenes there is a great amount of sophistication and detail within the construction to give some of the highest performing apartments the industry has seen. This project is a great turning point for design and performance in the residential industry and one that I hope is continued as I look forward to producing further works at this high quality in the near future".
