Lymington Yacht Haven wanted to replace its 20-year-old floating toilet facility with a new one that would match the standard of its newly refurbished land-based toilet and shower block.
Lymington is rated as a ‘five gold anchor’ marina – the highest rating possible – and hosts more than 600 boats, some worth £1m-plus. This means that high quality standards are absolutely essential for all of its facilities, to ensure they live up to clients’ high expectations.Solution :
Edward Mead, Marina Manager/Director, says: “We visited a marina in Scotland where they had fitted out a large Portakabin Titan building as a land-based toilet facility.
“The quality of the building matched our high standards, so we contacted Portakabin to look at the options available. We finally chose a Titan building too, because of its size, build quality and suitability for installation on a floating platform.”
The Portakabin Titan building is the largest stand-alone modular building available inEurope. Its robust, all-steel construction makes it ideal for harsh coastal environments, while its smart, clean-lined appearance makes an attractive addition to any site.
Portakabin adapted the building to meet the marina’s specifications, with bespoke windows and door positions to suit the unusual location. A major challenge for this project was safely installing the building onto the floating platform. Portakabin delivered the building to the dockside ready for fitting out. It was then craned carefully onto a specially prepared floating platform and towed into position, without a hitch.
During the refurbishment of its land-based toilets and showers, the marina also hired a premium-quality Portaloo toilet and shower building, to ensure the high expectations of its clients were met throughout the building programme.
Edward adds: “We were very happy with the way Portakabin listened to our requirements and provided exactly the building we needed for our floating toilet block. The building was delivered promptly on the agreed date, enabling us to keep our programme on schedule. We have now ordered a further two Titan buildings to go to our Plymouth marinas.”
