Mobile Mini UK is the UK division of Mobile Mini Inc, the world’s leading provider of portable storage solutions. Mobile Mini was founded in the USA in 1983 and now has locations in the US, Canada and in the UK.
Although the Mobile Mini name is fairly new to the UK, being established here only in 2006, our roots run deep in the UK’s portable storage and accommodation industry, with some of our predecessor companies having been founded in the early 1970’s. Today, we have a national network of 16 sites with over 37,000 portable units which provide site accommodation and secure storage solutions to approximately 11,300 customers including construction companies, retailers, manufacturers, hospitals, schools, utility companies, distributors, local and national government, hotels, restaurants, entertainment and shopping complexes and individual households to name but a few.
“ Bugler Developments provide residential and commercial buildings for both the public and private sector, throughout the London and South East area. Mobile Mini are a preferred supplier for the companyÂ’s onsite accommodation and storage needs, across their many projects. As well as a number of medium site set ups, Mobile Mini was instructed to install a significant number of units at BuglerÂ’s biggest project to date at London Road, Hounslow. Our drivers and yard operatives did an excellent job of installing the site, as was noted by Steve Smith, Buyer at Bugler who said, Â“It was a refreshing change to find out from the guys on site that a company and their operatives have exceeded expectations. Thanks for going the extra mile for usÂ”. View video testimonial here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCMOzCFShWs ”
HB Projects Ltd are a multi-disciplinary Principal Contractor, that work on a diverse range of construction projects throughout the UK, particularly for the Industrial, Retail and Commercial sectors. The company required site accommodation facilities for their employees, who were building a Co-op Store in Kirton in Lindsey, North Lincolnshire.
Story Contracting, on behalf of Nexus, installed the new Killingworth Road Metro Bridge in Tyne and Wear. One of the biggest engineering projects in the Metro’s history.
The old bridge which connects Newcastle and North Tyneside, which dated back to the Victorian era, needed to be replaced due to its age. It was demolished at the start of the project to make way for the new bridge. The work formed part of the £350m Metro all change modernisation programme to modernise the railway’s ageing infrastructure.
The new bridge, which weighs 370 tonnes, was assembled on a nearby site compound and then was moved into position on a multi-wheeled lifting rig, which utilised two secure, anti-vandal, steel storage containers. The containers offered a perfect solution due to their height, width and strength.
The bridge was then secured on to its new concrete abutments and made ready for the scheduled re-opening of the Metro line between South Gosforth and Shiremoor on Sunday 3 September – the scheduled end of the 34 day major line closure.
Commercial Director, Alan Huddart at Story Contracting, said: “This has been one the biggest engineering projects in Metro’s 37 year history.
“A huge amount of planning and work has gone into making this project a success, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of Mobile Mini. As always, they supplied us quality storage containers which were a fundamental part of the project. We were working within an extremely tight time frame, and Mobile Mini were able to meet our requirements and were flexible in their solution, which all contributed towards the success of the project”.
Heritage Building & Conservation (York) Ltd, a specialist conservation and restoration contractor, have been awarded a contract to work on Manchester Cathedral, a historical building in need of repair and maintenance.
The tower at the west end of Manchester Cathedral is currently in a poor condition and in urgent need of repair. The majority of the works will be in relation to the repair and consolidation of the masonry on the elevations of the tower including: stone de-scaling; the addressing of loose stone; louvres replacement; re-instatement of masonry; the removal / treatment of vegetation to the tower; the checking of the tower pinnacle and tower roof replacement.
During the project, the highly skilled team completing the work will be on site for approximately 12 months.
On-site facilities were needed, from a secure storage container to store safely site equipment such as tools and materials, as well as canteen facilities and an office to work from.
As space was limited, the solution was to install the two units onto a gantry 5ft from the ground. A risk assessment and site survey had to be completed to ensure the gantry could take the heavy load and would be safe for the long period of time.
Contracts Manager, Marcus Walker said: “We have worked with Mobile Mini on several projects to date and they have always met our expectations. This time with the added complex of the gantry installation, they didn’t fail to impress. All the assessment work prior to installation was of a professional nature, the delivery was to a high standard and both units are fit for purpose.”
