A major refitting and refurbishment project at Stobart Rail’s large warehouse in Lutterworth meant the company needed to provide office and welfare facilities for the 25 sub-contractors who would be working on site. Timescales were very tight, as the buildings were needed within a week if the project was to begin on time, so speed of delivery and building quality were top priorities.Solution :
Portakabin has provided Stobart Rail with many high-quality buildings to meet urgent requirements in recent years, and is now a preferred supplier. That meant Portakabin was the first choice to supply the Lutterworth warehouse project. Hiring buildings from Portakabin is the quickest and simplest way for Stobart Rail to get assured-quality buildings delivered from stock and installed in a matter of days. It means the company has no capital outlay when it needs new buildings, and no maintenance worries – and it can keep the buildings for just as long as they are needed.
Portakabin delivered and installed all the required buildings for the Lutterworth project and had them ready for use within just five days. This incredible delivery speed was made possible by the stock held at local Hire Centres in the region. There are more than 50 across the UK, from Inverness to Plymouth, giving customers a local service and an assurance of rapid delivery, wherever they are.
Nine self-contained buildings were supplied to the Lutterworth site, including Pacemaker buildings for the office and canteen facilities, and Portaloo toilet units. To streamline the project and give Stobart Rail a single point of contact, Portakabin also provided all the office and canteen furniture, steps and access ramps needed to fully equip the buildings. Neil Gooding, Site Agent for Stobart Rail, says: “The standard of the buildings supplied was immaculate and they all arrived right on schedule. They were sited very quickly and the furniture arrived about an hour later – so the buildings were immediately ready for us to use, which was exactly what we needed.”
“We always look at a number of suppliers for every building project, but Portakabin has always been very competitive, and its buildings provide excellent quality facilities. We needed a very quick turnaround on this project, and Portakabin responded by getting all the buildings installed and fitted out in good time.”
