Galliford Try

This was a high profile site with very high expectations and the temporary accommodation needed extensive office facilities and several welfare facilities including a canteen, a drying area, toilets, showers and stores for this Infrastructure project.

“A-Plant Accommodation performed very well on this project, delivering high quality accommodation units within all agreed timescales and with minimum fuss. The planning stage and up-front site visits were simple and well managed, with all necessary information provided as requested. The installation process went as planned and on schedule, and all units were linked and operational very quickly after delivery. A-Plant Accommodation were then on hand to answer any further queries we had and iron out minor issues before the installation was signed off.”

Products Used

Site accommodation complex comprising 8 x 32’ office units, 1 x 32’ Heart Unit, 1 x 32’ Reception Area, 1 x 32’ Canteen, 1 x 32’ Drying Room, 1 x 32’ Toilet and Shower Unit, 1 x 32’ Store and 1 x Gate House. The units were stacked, linked and of environmental specification.

The Challenge

The site used to be an old landfill site which needed full preparation in order for the units to be delivered and positioned in a safe manner. A-Plant Accommodation had to deliver, install, stack and link a total of 15 accommodation units, all within a strict two day timescale. 

The Solution

We proposed an extensive accommodation complex comprising a total of 15 accommodation units which were linked and stacked. All of the accommodation units supplied were brand new and of environmental specification. With increased insulation, the Eco units are designed to reduce overall fuel usage, whilst reducing noise and the environmental impact. Galliford Try’s Safety Auditor reviewed and accepted the Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS) and Lift Plan. In preparation for installation of the units, Galliford Try built a haul road, prepared the ground and supplied excellent foundation pads.

The Results

The client was delighted with the quality of the units and the service provided by A-Plant Accommodation, as well as the rapid installation and optimum safety standards. The whole planning of this project was a great team effort, from planning to delivery and installation on-site. The A-Plant sales and service centre teams worked seamlessly to ensure the delivery sequence went to plan.
