CGGVeritas praises 'class A' facility when Portakabin delivers fully-fitted 2,000m2 office building of unsurpassed quality

Organisation : CGG Veritas


Product : Ultima

Location : Crawley

Requirement :

International geophysical equipment and service provider, CGGVeritas, wanted to bring all employees based at two sites in Crawley together on a single site. It decided to move people out of a leased office in the town and construct a major new building for them on an empty plot of land adjacent to its head office. While plans for the new building were developed, the company decided to hire an interim office building for three years. It wanted the building to provide premium-quality office space to match the high standards of its head office.

Solution :

Tony Maynard, Facilities Manager at CGGVeritas, says: “Portakabin is the biggest name in modular construction so we went straight to them. We had seen other large buildings they had delivered in London, so we knew they could provide the scale of facilities we needed, but we didn’t know if they could meet our high expectations for the specification and fit-out of the building.”

The vast two-storey building created by Portakabin for CGGVeritas provides more than 2,000m2 of exemplary executive office space, incorporating open-plan areas, individual offices, videoconferencing suites, training rooms, meeting rooms, break-out areas, kitchen facilities and toilets.

To match the specification of the head office building, Portakabin provided energy-efficient PIR-controlled lighting throughout, an advanced building management system to monitor and control electricity use, a high specification air-conditioning system and plentiful large windows to create a bright, naturally lit interior.

“Working with Portakabin felt like a team effort from day one, not a typical supplier-client relationship,” says Tony. “The Portakabin project management team did everything possible to fulfil all of our specifications. Everyone, from engineers to the shop-floor technicians building the modules, made suggestions, offered advice and recommended improvements to ensure we got the building we desired.”

“The response to the building has been overwhelmingly positive. When we first took employees to see the interior for themselves, they were amazed by the standard and wanted to move in immediately. This is truly a ‘class A’ office facility for the people from our old site, providing a bright, pleasant working environment that is far superior to anything they have had before.”
