Case Study - Easyjet

Organisation : There are no client.

Application : Offices

Product : Duplex

Location : Luton

Requirement :

The low-cost airline urgently needed quality office accommodation at its easyLand headquarters in Luton following its merger with Go. With the permanent offices not yet ready for occupancy, it was important to integrate the two airlines as soon as possible. The interim buildings needed to accommodate employees who had transferred from Go's Stansted headquarters.

Solution :

Following a competitive tender process, easyJet awarded Portakabin the contract to build the extension to easyLand. Due to the tight deadlines specified, Portakabin built the extension in less than nine weeks, compared with the 32 weeks it would have taken to build traditionally. Portakabin built 1,300m² of high-quality office accommodation in three stages, which allowed for the seamless integration of personnel into the easyJet operation. The building houses 200 people, and has the capacity to comfortably accommodate easyJet's predicted growth.

"After meeting with two preferred building suppliers, it was clear that only Portakabin had the capacity to meet our specified deadlines for transferring staff from Stansted. The Portakabin environment adheres to the same principles that characterise the existing easyLand building; open plan, air conditioned, no private offices, hot desks and informality amongst staff. We have the option to extend our initial hire contract if we need the building for longer, which gives us flexibility and peace-of-mind."

Huw Thomas, Projects and Facilities Manager

"We are very pleased with the new accommodation, which also includes a very responsive climate control system. The offices are light, airy and comfortable and the staff have been pleasantly surprised with the large open-plan office and have responded to the quality working environment it provides."

Sarah Pritchett, Public Relations Officer
