Think Environmental Ltd, Northamptonshire, exists to provide sustainable, cost-effective, flexible and reliable solutions to the commercial and industrial waste markets. The company required a 5 year hire Visitor Centre, Office and Welfare facility. Module-AR Limited were awarded the contract consisting of 4 No. modules and an overall footprint of 149m².
The building opened into a 52m² Visitor Centre with a small Office, Lobby, Dining Area (fully-fitted with seating, tables, base units and worktops), staff Showers and WC’s. The main Visitor Centre was furnished with desks, chairs and computer equipment for 4 members of staff. Polysafe Standard vinyl flooring was installed in the wet areas and carpet tiled flooring for the office & visitor centre for a maintenance-free, hard wearing and robust finish.
Heat & Cool air conditioning, suspended ceilings, standalone fire alarm & intruder alarm systems, internal vertical window blinds and an entrance door canopy were also fitted as part of the hire building to ensure the building felt and acted like a permanent solution for the members of staff.
Externally the Visitor Centre, Office and Welfare facility was clad in Pigeon-Grey Plastisol (plastic coated steel) walls, Leaf Green fascia (with Think Environmental Ltd signage) and plinths. UPVC lockable windows with restrictors and multi point locking steel doors completed the exterior of the extremely secure structure.
The project was designed, manufactured and completed in 8 weeks and just 1 day was required for Module-AR Limited to deliver and install the modules on site. This is a large advantage over traditional construction methods due to the reduction in site traffic & disturbance and the reduced overall programme time – up to 50% faster than a traditional build.
