Route 66 directors Jamie Loudon and Tom McNally wanted to develop a new market-leading, professional motorcycle training school. They needed a comfortable, contemporary and welcoming building to provide a reception area, classroom space and restroom facilities for their students and staff. They also wanted to deliver excellence to their customers from the moment they entered the premises, which meant that the quality and finish of the building were top priorities.Solution :
Director Jamie Loudon says: “We had a very limiting design brief, with restrictions on the dimensions of the building and a very narrow but precise delivery window. Delivering all this with the flexibility and attention to detail that we required was a tall order for any supplier. Portakabin was the only company able to match our exact specifications and to promise delivery within the timescales we had in mind.
“We were initially attracted to Portakabin by the quality of buildings shown in its product brochure, however it was our first meeting with their sales executive that really clinched it for us. From the very first meeting Portakabin listened to all our requirements, took time to demonstrate all the variations in the product range and sought solutions to the limitations of our brief. Their commitment, flexibility and willingness to assist was a real breath of fresh air.”
Portakabin supplied Route 66 with a high-quality, spacious Titan building – the largest single modular building model in Europe. Its sleek, simple design and bright, spacious interior fulfilled all of Route 66’s requirements, providing a pleasant environment in which students can learn and relax.
Visitors enter the building through large patio-style double-glazed doors which open into the reception area and accessories shop. At either side of the reception area, doors lead into two very large, light and airy classrooms. Adjacent to the reception area is a washroom and kitchen facility.
Just days after the final specification was agreed, Portakabin delivered and installed the building within the customer’s tight delivery window. Portakabin has a unique Customer Charter which assures customers of such timely deliveries. It promises that all buildings will be delivered on time and on budget. For complete peace of mind, Portakabin even promises that if it ever fails to meet this commitment, it will provide a week’s free hire for every day it is late.*
Jamie continues: “We are all very proud of our new building. It always receives a positive reaction and excellent feedback from our customers. Our staff are delighted to have a leading-edge, quality environment to work in, which is modern, robust and practical. It sets our training school’s standards way above our toughest competitors.
“The outstanding customer service we received from Portakabin made the whole experience a pleasure. Their professionalism, product knowledge and attention to detail was backed up by prompt responses to all communications from us. They ensured that any possible complications were dealt with prior to delivery and it was clear from the start that Portakabin shared our passion for excellence.”
