For its new housebuilding regeneration project at Stanwell in Middlesex, A2 Dominion New Homes needed to source energy-efficient site offices, toilets and canteens for its on-site workers. The company's target for the year was to significantly improve its environmental performance, so it wanted to find a supplier of site buildings that could deliver quantifiable energy savings.Solution :
Clive Pollock, A2 Dominion's Senior Site Manager for the Stanwell project, says: "The site cabins we were accustomed to would not meet our new energy-saving objectives, so we researched the market and discovered the Konstructa Energy-Saver range of buildings. These were exactly what we were looking for. We ordered six 32-foot units to create the facilities we needed."
Konstructa Energy-Saver buildings incorporate enhanced insulation, energy-efficient PIR lighting and a host of features that can reduce energy use by up to 32% compared to a traditional site cabin. Konstructa Energy-Saver toilet buildings have water-saving features that can reduce water use by up to 40%.
Portakabin Site Accommodation worked closely with A2 Dominion New Homes to devise the specific building configurations needed for the Stanwell project. The company wanted a number of combination units, incorporating both office space and kitchenettes, and Portakabin Site Accommodation was able to develop precisely the internal layouts requested.
The Konstructa Energy-Saver buildings supplied included three office units fully fitted out with robust furniture, a toilet block and two spacious canteens. These facilities cater for the 60-strong on-site workforce. The buildings were delivered in two phases to suit the works programme, and were double-stacked to optimise space available on site.
Clive continues: "All of the buildings were delivered on time, ready for us to use. The quality of the cabins is brilliant. The standard of the accommodation is way above anything we have used before, and the units are standing up well to heavy duty use every day."
"The buildings are performing very well and we have recorded notable energy savings on this project compared with previous jobs. The service from Portakabin Site Accommodation has been excellent."
