Centrica were due to commence a major project in Lincolnshire and wanted to be as “green” as possible on site and considered many options.
One of these was to hire energy efficient portable buildings to reduce the amount of electricity and water used during the project. After searching the market Centrica placed an order to hire 14 Elliott Eco-Cabins and these were supplied from the local Elliott hire depot, one of many strategically placed throughout the UK.
These portable buildings were delivered and installed in a double stacked formation at the plant to rigorous safety standards and initially used for a 6 week period during a plant shutdown. The Elliott Eco-cabins were used for the temporary workforce as offices and welfare accommodation.
Elliott Eco-Cabins were purposely designed to meet the rising need to protect our environment. Compared to standard portable buildings these provide a range of energy efficiency including double glazed windows, improved wall and roof insulation, PIR lighting and thermostatically controlled heating.
