Case Study - Lafarge Aggregates

Organisation : Lafarge Aggregates

Application : Offices

Product : Pacemaker

Location : Peterborough

Requirement :

When Lafarge Aggregates, the UK’s largest producer of construction materials, was called in to work on a project just outside Peterborough, the company quickly needed to get office accommodation on site for its team.

The company had always used the same supplier for its temporary accommodation in the past, but because of the poor service they had received they were keen to look elsewhere. Portakabin’s Peterborough Hire Centre was not far from the site of the project, so Lafarge approached the company to see what it could offer.

Solution :

The promise of high service standards set out in the Portakabin Customer Charter, combined with a promise to deliver buildings on an agreed date – and to compensate the customer if this date was missed – encouraged Lafarge to choose Portakabin to supply the temporary buildings for this project.

An order was placed on a Friday, and four large Pacemaker office buildings were delivered to the site on the following Wednesday, as agreed. Two were open-plan, and two included a partition wall with an area for sinks and worktops. Two Portaloo units with access steps were also supplied, and the office buildings were fully kitted out with furniture by Portakabin, so that office staff could move straight in.

Andy Cottam of Lafarge Aggregates, says: “The service we received from Portakabin was excellent. The key thing for us on this project was to get buildings in place very quickly, with no hassle, so that we could get on with work on site. Portakabin enabled us to do this by acting fast to get buildings delivered to us on the promised date. The whole project went very smoothly, and we are very impressed by the quality of the buildings supplied.”
