Konstructa Hire provides site accommodation for 300 workers in major construction project

Barr Construction, one of the leaders in UK construction, required amenities for over 300 of their workers for the duration of a store demolition and rebuild project in Cardiff.

They were completing the project on behalf of the UK’s largest retailer, Tesco, with whom Barr Construction has a multi-million pound agreement to fulfil high profile new store builds and extensions across the country.

Site accommodation provided by Konstructa Hire

Barr Construction needed to hire site accommodation that would meet the standards of the brand’s reputation, as well as providing safety on the construction site and the best facilities for its workers.

Barry Bryce, Retail Unit Manager at Barr Construction, said, ‘We hadn’t sourced temporary accommodation in the Cardiff area before, so we contacted Konstructa Hire to find out what they could offer. The quality of site accommodation available from the company was very good and met the strict requirements we set for our Tesco projects. The buildings also met our financial stipulations and could be delivered within short lead times.’

Konstructa Hire supplied twelve robust, anti-vandal construction site buildings, which were also able to provide comprehensive site amenities. These facilities included a reception, offices, meeting rooms, toilets and a canteen. The all-steel buildings that were provided offered the durability needed for a construction site, as well as extensive levels of security.

Within the three weeks notice that had been given to Konstructa Hire, they were able to deliver and install all of the buildings, even before the agreed deadline.

This enabled the construction to go ahead of the planned schedule. The anti-vandal site buildings were double stacked to create six two-storey buildings that were completely fitted-out by the team at Konstructa Hire and included office and canteen furniture.

Barry continued, ‘All of the units arrived in excellent condition, and many of them were brand new. Everyone on site has been very happy with the quality of the site accommodation, which looks clean and professional.

‘Because Konstructa Hire also supplied all the furniture we needed, we just had one point of contact for all of our temporary site accommodation needs. On this first project with Konstructa Hire, the company met all of our quality and service requirements, and we will certainly use them again in future.’
