Modular accommodation for the construction sector

Site accommodation for Docklands Light Railway extension

Organisation : GrantRail

Building Use : Construction

Product : Cabins, Modular Buildings

Location : Docklands

Requirement :

Site accommodation was required by GrantRail Group and Skanska who are joint venture partners in a multi-million pound extension of the Docklands Light Railway to Stratford International Station in the heart of the Olympics regeneration area.

Solution :

Two-storey offices were provided by ConstructionSpace in just four weeks from receipt of order.

The 500 sqm building comprises 20 pre-owned steel-framed modules which were relocated to the site in Stratford to accommodate around 45 people for up to three years. It was supplied complete with open plan offices, meeting rooms, cellular offices, reception, toilets and kitchenette.

ConstructionSpace is the web-based service from Foremans that provides modular accommodation to the construction sector on a site-to-site basis, eliminating double handling charges and reducing costs. For further information, visit  http://www.constructionspace.co.uk/.

"We have used ConstructionSpace previously, to supply site accommodation for a project in Kent. When we were awarded the DLR contract with Skanska we looked at a number of building solutions and felt the ConstructionSpace option best suited our needs, programme and cost requirements." 

"This approach is significantly faster and more cost-effective than new build. We needed the accommodation as soon as we won the contract to move in the team and organise the site. We had a good working relationship with ConstructionSpace and the project manager was excellent, giving us a single point of contact throughout. We are now working with ConstructionSpace again following our success with Skanska in winning the second phase of the DLR extension."
