When TTS Interiors were fitting-out the interior of a building at Glasgow Airport, they encountered a problem with the delivery of the welfare unit that was due to be delivered. Without it, BAA had stipulated that work could not commence. So when they received a call from their chosen supplier, on the morning of delivery, telling them that there would be a 24 to 48 hour delay, they needed an alternative solution urgently to avoid costly delays.Solution :
Portakabin Site Accommodation stepped in, taking the order at 9.30am and delivering a 32x10ft toilet/mess unit to site by 1.30pm, having sourced the required unit from stock and prepared it, with all relevant processes followed and administration complete.
Steve Raw, Contracts Manager, at TTS Interiors, says: “We needed to provide welfare accommodation for our team on an internal fit-out project at Glasgow Airport without delay. Even unloading of wagons was not possible without a fully functioning unit in place. Portakabin Site Accommodation lived up to its promises of excellent customer service and an exceptionally quick response.”
Portakabin Site Accommodation provided an energy-saving 32 foot building incorporating full flushing toilets and a mess room which included a kitchenette area, instant hot-water provision, worktops, easy-clean tables and canteen seating. The natural ventilation and bright internal environments provide workers with comfortable, pleasant surroundings for their breaks.
Steve continues: “Not only was the turnaround time remarkable but so were the facilities. The brand new unit was far superior than we would have had from the original supplier. It was exceptionally clean, making a pleasant environment for our workforce. We were extremely satisfied with the efficiency - initial promises were carried through to fruition, with additional support arranging the Heras fencing which the original supplier had also failed to deliver.”
Portakabin Site Accommodation is committed to delivering all buildings on time, which is backed by a unique on time delivery promise to provide a week’s free hire in the unlikely event buildings are ever delivered late.
Since completion of this project the unit has been hired by two further contractors working on interior fit-out projects at Glasgow Airport.
"The speed of delivery given the short notice was extremely impressive, with the unit being delivered only four hours after initial contact. Also the fact, that although we were plainly desperate, there was no attempt to capitalise on this by inflating the charges. The hire charge per week was in fact lower than what we had expected to pay, which, for the quality of the unit was a surprise.”
