Multi-disciplinary construction company Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd was appointed to carry out site clearance and land remediation work ahead of the construction of a major new youth football development facility. The client wanted the project to use as many local suppliers as possible, so Buckingham Group Contracting set out to find a local site accommodation supplier that met all of its high standards.Solution :
Steve Foster, Senior Project Manager at Buckingham Group Contracting, says: "Our head office buying team pointed us in the direction of Portakabin Site Accommodation, which has a depot close to the project site. The quality of the cabins was very important, especially for such a prestigious client, and we found that Portakabin Site Accommodation buildings matched up to our high standards. The buildings look professional and clean and are easy to maintain, which is exactly what we were looking for."
Buckingham Group Contracting needed extensive on-site facilities for the 14-month project, during which up to 95 people would be based at the vast site. Portakabin Site Accommodation responded quickly to deliver an initial batch of buildings immediately, allowing on-site work to start on schedule. The remaining cabins were delivered soon afterwards, providing a total of 18 units for the site.
Sixteen of the buildings were connected and double stacked to create a two-storey block, providing offices, canteens, drying rooms, toilets and shower facilities. The two remaining buildings provide a 32-foot drying room and a ten-foot security hut. The doors and jacklegs on all buildings were painted in the blue corporate livery of Buckingham Group Contracting.
Steve continues: "Portakabin Site Accommodation offered an excellent service, from our initial enquiry through to the rapid delivery and installation of the buildings. Everything was completed on time, despite the very tight timescale. Working with Portakabin Site Accommodation was a simple and painless experience; everything was done quickly, efficiently and to the highest standards."
“Everyone on site has been very pleased with the quality of the buildings, which are a big improvement on anything we’ve used before. I know that the client has been impressed by the quality and appearance of the buildings too, and they are keen to keep them on site for the next phase of construction.”
