Elliott provided Willmott Dixon with temporary Moduflex cabins to support the development of 133 new homes in Bristol. The development is one of the first for its kind for Bristol City Council, with the council building homes for sale on the private market. Willmott Dixon have 133 homes to build in Bristol, they required onsite temporary offices and facilities for the people doing the job, so Elliott happily provided them with Moduflex cabins. Willmott Dixon are long standing clients of Elliott, therefore there is a deep understanding of their specific requests from previous hires.
Willmott Dixon required flexibility from their working space which is what led them to choose Moduflex from Elliott’s wide range of solutions. Moduflex can create a variety of different building designs including offices, sales centres, welfare facilities, break-out rooms and kitchens. This is because Moduflex can easily be stacked and linked to create large, airy and open spaces up to three stories high. They can also be used as standalone units if space isn’t a priority.
Elliott keep a good supply of the Moduflex cabins in their depots across the UK which means they are available for hire instantly, no matter where you are. For Willmott Dixon, the other advantage of choosing Moduflex was that it can be supplied with Elliott’s robust and high quality furniture packs. This saves time and costly extra charges from having to go through another company. Elliott also supply a whole host of welfare facilities including canteens, changing rooms, toilets and showers so that upon delivery, the Moduflex cabins are ready to go. For this specific hire, Willmott Dixon chose Elliott’s 9M Type C Moduflex cabin.
Willmott Dixon had the big job of building 133 homes and thanks to Elliott, they had somewhere to work, relax, get clean and socialise should they need it. By taking care of their employees, Wilmott Dixon could maintain high welfare and safety standards and ensure the project was completed to the agreed timescales. The development is predicted to complete in 2020 and will result in 40% affordable homes for the city, available for social rent.
