Organisation : Lend Lease


Location : Hertfordshire

Requirement :

When Lend Lease was contracted to complete major construction and refurbishment work at  HM Prison, The Mount, it needed to source the highest-quality site office and welfare facilities. Lend Lease sets global minimum standards for its sites, which include site buildings that deliver a 40-60% carbon reduction over standard cabins.

Solution :

Julian Floyd, Commercial Manager at Lend Lease, says: “We had hired Konstructa Hire buildings before, so we knew its Energy-Saver range offered the environmental performance we needed to meet our carbon-saving requirements. In addition, the  company’s Fire-Safe buildings offer the highest fire-rating available, which was essential for a site where some cabins would be located within ten metres of existing prison buildings.”

Konstructa Energy-Saver buildings are packed with energy and water-saving features that significantly reduce energy use and carbon emissions. Konstructa Fire-Safe buildings are the only energy-saving site buildings that are also fire-rated to offer 30 minutes’ fire-resistance in multi-storey mode.

Julian continues: “Another Lend Lease requirement is that ladders must never be used as a primary means of access. The only solution offered by most cabin suppliers for installing two-storey buildings is to use highly expensive lifting equipment. So we were delighted to discover that Portakabin Site Accommodation had developed a new installation technique that enabled buildings to be double stacked from ground level with no need for ladders, and at a tiny fraction of the cost of alternative methods.”

The innovative low-level installation tool was devised by Portakabin Site Accommodation in response to demand for safer, ladder-free installation of two-storey site buildings, eliminating the risk of falls from height.

Lend Lease hired a range of Konstructa Energy-Saver and Fire-Safe buildings, which were fitted out with furniture and painted in Lend Lease corporate livery to create a smart, professional-looking site.

“The buildings were all installed on the agreed date and the low-level installation system worked very efficiently and safely. We initially hired ten buildings, but this has increased to more than 20, providing our site-based teams with all the high-quality office and welfare facilities they need.”
