Latest Depot News
Leeds depot has recently expanded its team together with its capacity which has resulted in steady, incremental growth.
Following the recent RAAC (Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete) crisis, Portable Offices has stepped up with a raft of temporary classroom solutions designed to assist schools in a smooth interim transition.
Leeds depot provided a two bay temporary classroom and office for Abbey Lane School in Sheffield while they addressed their RAAC issue.
Since then, the office has provided a number of quotations for other schools affected and is waiting to see what results.
Manager, Becky Scholefield commented: “We have continued to assist clients in a variety of sectors, from our usual ‘bread & butter’ clients like housebuilders looking for marketing suites to motor traders looking for temporary office and reception areas whilst their buildings are being refurbished.”
JCT Seat in Sheffield is one example, where temporary offices were required to accommodate staff during their refurbishment. A new Enterprise operation in Bradford together with John Roe Toyota in Hull and Northgate Vehicle Hire were able to benefit from temporary accommodation during their period of expansion.
The depot also provided a state-of-the-art changing room for Bruntsfield Golf Club in Scotland, a high specification shower room for Parraloy, a potato laboratory for Seabrook crisps and a 40’ unit for a food bank in Northumberland.
Becky has also recruited two new team members:
At the office, there is a new Customer Account Manager Sales, Darren Bean, who recently joined.
Darren will respond to new and existing customers providing a professional first port of call and arranging quotations, logistics and operations.
In the yard, Luke Lupton has joined as a multi-skilled yard operative. Increasing the team’s skilled capacity.
