Celebrating Success: Portable Offices Wins Prestigious MMC Award

At Portable Offices, we’re thrilled to share some exciting news! Our team has recently been honoured with the prestigious MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) Award for our exceptional work on the SS Simon & Jude CE Primary School project in Bolton. This recognition highlights our commitment to excellence and innovation in the field of temporary building projects.

Recognising Excellence in Construction

The MMC Awards, in collaboration with the MPBA (Modular Portable Buildings Association), aim to celebrate excellence and achievement in modern construction methods. We’re proud to have been awarded first prize in the category of Temporary Building Project in Education/Healthcare/Events/Other. This award serves as a testament to our dedication to delivering high-quality solutions tailored to our clients’ needs.

A Collaborative Success Story

The success of the SS Simon & Jude CE Primary School project was the result of collaborative efforts and dedication from our team. Depot Manager, Sue Holland, emphasised the importance of teamwork and the pivotal role played by Sandycroft in bringing the project to fruition. Together, we provided a rapid and comprehensive education solution, enabling the school to reopen to pupils in record time following a devastating fire.

Rapid Response and Exceptional Results

In just five weeks, we delivered a total of 73 buildings, including 69 modular sections, to the site – an impressive feat that showcases our team’s ability to respond quickly and efficiently to challenging situations. Ian Smith, reflecting on the project, highlighted the dedication and agility of our team in meeting tight deadlines and delivering exceptional results.

Investing in Growth and Development

Closer to home in Chester, Sandycroft is undergoing major renovations to update office and yard facilities, providing greater opportunities for clients to explore our portable building options. The addition of new Operations Coordinators, Liam Moores and Clare Cartlidge, underscores our commitment to investing in talent and fostering growth within our team.

Welcoming Clare Sherlock to Head HR

We’re excited to announce that Clare Sherlock has joined us to head up our HR. Based at Sandycroft, Clare brings a wealth of experience and is looking forward to meeting everyone during her visits to the depots soon. Her addition to the team is a significant step forward in our ongoing commitment to supporting our teams and further fostering a positive workplace environment.

Celebrating Personal Milestones

In addition to professional achievements, we’re delighted to celebrate personal milestones within our team. Katie Trevorrow, now Katie Peers following her recent marriage to Graham, exemplifies the spirit of family and camaraderie that defines Portable Offices. We wish them both much happiness for their future together.

Supporting a Worthy Cause: Charity Initiatives

Our team at Sandycroft also embraced the spirit of giving with a fun charity morning, ‘Eat Cake Day’, supporting our new charity, Children’s Hospice – Hope House & Ty Gobaith¬† based just outside of Oswestry and Conwy respectively. The event was a sweet success, with team members bringing in a delightful selection of cakes, pastries, and treats. We raised over ¬£100 for the charity and are excited to continue our fundraising efforts throughout the year for this worthy cause.

Susan Holland provided an overview of some of our latest contracts, including installations for RVT Commercials in Shrewsbury and the upcoming Storyhouse project in Chester. It’s an exciting time for Portable Offices as we continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in temporary building construction.
