Organisation : Drax Power Limited

Application : Offices

Product : Duplex, Pacemaker, Titan, Ultima

Location : Selby, North Yorkshire

Requirement :

Drax Power Station is the largest, cleanest and most efficient coal-fired power station in the UK, supplying seven per cent of the country’s electricity needs. Drax Power Limited was revitalising its on-site office buildings, and needed high-quality decant accommodation to house its staff while the refurbishment work took place.

Solution :

Barry Watson, Head of Facilities at Drax Power Station, says: “When we set out to find a building supplier, we were looking for the best-value package. Aside from price, service levels and building quality were vitally important. Portakabin emerged as the supplier offering the best overall package of products and service.”

Drax appointed Portakabin to provide all of the accommodation needed to house its office-based staff during the major refurbishment project. For this, Portakabin provided complete interim office facilities, comprising two large Ultima and Duplexmodular buildings, a range of Pacemaker buildings, and two large Titan buildings.

Portakabin carried out all groundworks, fitted the modular buildings with climate-control systems, and pre-wired the offices with more than 250 I.T. points.

This extensive accommodation provides a welcoming, bright and attractive working environment, with a range of cellular and open-plan offices, meeting rooms, toilets and kitchen areas for the 120 people who will be based there over a two-year period.

Barry continues: “When the buildings were delivered, I was particularly impressed by the performance of the site installation teams from Portakabin. Its safety procedures were exemplary, following precisely the strict protocols we had agreed. The power station is a hazardous environment for craning in large buildings, with many high-voltage overhead wires and other obstructions, but the way the team delivered and installed all the buildings was absolutely spot on.”
