    How Can Agencies Use the MAS Contract?

    Agencies can use the GSA MAS contract in place of internal procurements. The contract can be used for one-time projects or to establish blanket purchase agreements (BPAs). BPAs are indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts that ensure skilled contractors like Logan Simpson are available to meet needs as they arise.

  • Queen Creek gets two new schools

    For families in Phoenix’s East Valley, back to school won’t be just about returning – it will include exploring  entirely new campuses. 

    Logan Simpson is proud to have been a part of the Silver Valley school project! Our team provided hardscape, landscape, irrigation and site design. The site design including all site planning- fields, courts, walks, fire lane location, parking lot layout, and fencing.

    From azfamily.com: 

    Silver Valley Elementary will have nearly 600 pre-K through sixth-grade students for its first year. School officials say it’ll be STEAM focused. It’s decked out with high-tech technology like smart panels which give teachers the ability to write and save their work on a big monitor. It also has breakout areas in the hallways with special paint that transforms the walls into a dry erase surface. Students can write on the walls with a dry erase marker, and it’ll come off.

    Lamb said it cost a total of $70 million to build both schools and that a voter-approved bond paid for half of it and the other half came from the state.
