This summer has seen Portable Offices? Sandycroft green credentials coming to the forefront with an increase in demand for its eco-pad foundation system and an over-riding need to preserve trees at a flagship contract site.
Loreto College ? a Catholic sixth form education facility in Manchester ? had an urgent requirement for additional lecture rooms resulting in a hire order for six buildings in the recently introduced ?2020 design. However, a prime requirement was the continued well-being of the College?s magnificent Horse Chestnut and Oak trees, the subject of a tree preservation order.
This created an unusual installation challenge for the company tasked with avoiding any damage to the arboreal splendour that surrounded the college.
The former old convent has nurtured the trees for many years and the use of the eco-pads was vital to avoid damaging the tree roots during the foundation process.
Needless to say the team rose to the challenge and no trees were cut or damaged in the making of this modular buildings production.
With a buzzing order book and high levels of interest from the education and public sector, the depot has continued its marketing focus on specific sectors. This approach, combined with the product displays, has combined to bring several large contracts to fruition.
Manager Ian Smith, commented: ?Busy times for the Sandycroft team include a further order for the 2020 product at Rainbow Day Nursery in Middlewich, an 350m2 modular building extension at Condover?s centre to create light, airy, open plan learning areas, plus a 250m2 executive building for PM Projects? Medlmmune (UK) Ltd, again using the eco-pads system to protect the fragile grass site.
?The further investment and expansion of our Customer Account Manager resource in Sandycroft is working extremely well with total focus on customers and single point of contact both of our existing and also our new potential customers resulting in outstanding customer satisfaction survey feedback ?
