Case Study - Milbrook Proving Ground Ltd

Organisation : Millbrook Proving Ground

Product : Ultima

Location : Bedford, UK

Requirement :

Millbrook is one of Europe's leading locations for the development and demonstration of every type of land vehicle - from motorcycles and passenger cars to heavy commercial, military and off-road vehicles. Renowned for hosting lavish press days and technical driving courses, it required a new high specification showroom and customer centre, to house such events.

Solution :

Cliff Robertson, Facilities Area Manager at Millbrook, said, ‘Portakabin was chosen due to the superior quality of accommodation the company could provide. We often work with prominent brands and our facilities needed to mirror the standards of our high calibre customers. We selected Portakabin as we felt, on this occasion, that only they could offer the quality of building specification and exceptional finish we required.'

The 150m² single storey building included a fully glazed wall; a light and spacious open plan meeting and reception area, as well as spotlights and floor tiles, both of which were specially imported from Italy. The attention to detail throughout the project has meant the building has seen the finest of finishing touches and distinguishing features.

Committed to providing the highest levels of customer service, Portakabin ensured a dedicated project manager was on site at all times for the duration of the project, giving Millbrook total peace of mind that the building would be completed on time and on budget.

Mr Robertson continued, ‘‘The end result is a stylish and modern building, delivered, installed and finished within just six weeks on-site. The workmanship, service level and professionalism of all involved were absolutely second-to-none.

‘Portakabin has a product range and service offering that leaves most of its competitors wanting. We would definitely consider using Portakabin again, whether it be for hiring or buying small buildings or creating a permanent modular facility.'

The Portakabin building was also delivered to Millbrook with a five-year product warranty and 20 year structural warranty¹ as well as the pioneering Portakabin Customer Charter. This states that if Portakabin fails to deliver a project on time and to the agreed contract sum, the customer will be entitled to an additional six months product warranty².
