Regent’s Park in London is getting superb new sports pitches and a brand new pavilion – thanks to Lottery funding distributed by Sport England. Work got underway after the old pitches and pavilion were demolished – and a year later the new pitches were almost completed. However, it was to be six months before the new pavilion would be completed, and the local sports teams were eager to try out their new grounds. The Royal Parks quickly needed to find interim changing room facilities to cater for the players until the new pavilion was finished.Solution :
Robust all-steel buildings from Portaloo were chosen to fill the gap. The Royal Parks hired five changing room buildings, with toilets and showers, as well as an attendant’s room and a disabled persons’ shower and toilet unit. These buildings will provide high-quality facilities for local sports people until they can move into their new pavilion.
The Royal Parks Project Sponsor Edward Strickland, says: “Regulations dictated that we had to supply adequate changing facilities for any league games that were to be played on the new pitches, and this was also a condition of the Sport England funding.
“We chose to hire Portaloo buildings because they offered the best value for money and met all of our specifications. Portaloo delivered the buildings on schedule and installed them to comply fully with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. People seem very happy with the interim facilities.
“The service from Portaloo has been excellent, and the local Hire Centre team has maintained a very good relationship.”
