Press Release: December 17, 2009
The first modular building we installed as a temporary walk in centre, was a used 6 bay modular building. Prior to arrival on site, jackpad foundations were used to erect the building instead of traditional concrete foundations.
Portable Buildings have agreed to purchase the building back after the Primary Care Trust no longer have a use for the building and in addition will also purchase the jackpad foundations leaving a clear and clean car park area once again.
The Portable Building Sales buy back scheme ensures that the building is removed safely, professionally and to the current Health & Safety and CDM regulations. They ensure that the Primary Care Trust has no disposal problems and receives payment for the building before it is removed. Portable Building Sales Ltd is one of the few companies in the UK to provide this type of service.
The used steel framed modular building that was supplied consists of six plastic coated steel modules which have white Upvc double glazed windows. The building also has a plasterboard lined ceiling and walls and a double thickness plywood floor. This used modular building was decorated internally, cleaned externally and reinstated electrically to the latest regulations. This temporary modular walk in centre building complies with the current Part L2A 2006 building regulations and is extremely environmentally friendly as it only uses 3% of the energy required to manufacture an equivalent new modular building. This is because the embodied energy is transportable and therefore can be relocated to a new site. Also there are significant cost savings to the client and in this instance the tax payer as well, as this building was approximately a third of the cost of an equivalent new manufactured modular building.
Portable Building Sales completed the installation of this building within four weeks from the date of order and to the clients complete satisfaction. Even though this modular building is pre-owned, Portable Building Sales still provide a 12 months guarantee with the building.
Portable Building Sales provided the Coventry Primary Care Trust with complete peace of mind throughout the process of attending meetings, submission of our Health & Safety plans, supply and installation of the used modular building, arrangement of the crane, to even organising the transportation and temporary traffic management to enable the building to be off loaded from a road adjacent to the site.
