38 Cover Story ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE A Collinson BestHall building provided the perfect solution for one of the world’s largest peat producers storage needs Port side building Collinson have recently completed another port side building, this time for one of the world’s largest peat producers - Bord na Mona at the Port of Dublin. Following the restructuring of their whole processing strategy, Bord na Mona’s storage of bagged home heating products such as coal and briquettes was relocating to a new site so a warehouse had to be sourced. The Port of Dublin is reclaimed land, therefore it was the ground conditions that determined the type of structure required and due to their minimal foundation requirements a steel frame tension membrane structure was selected. Several companies were approached but it was a Collinson BestHall building that was chosen. Lisa Furlong the project engineer at Bord na Mona, explains why: “Collinson were marginally cheaper, however the main reason was not only the quality of the product but the support and assistance given by Collinson personnel in the initial enquiry stage, this support and attention to detail continued throughout the build.” Bord na Mona also commented on the Collinson installation team’s attention to Health and Safety. Collinson are members of the SafeContractor accreditation scheme for business. Best-Hall® Buildings consist of a Steel lattice superstructure covered with a Tensioned PVC coated membrane. The buildings are capable of clear spans from 10metres to 100metres, with lengths from 24m upwards and heights to suit the project. The white coloured membrane allows high levels of natural light to enter the structure eliminating the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours making a pleasant, energy efficient working environment. Designed as a permanent structure in terms of durability, strength and quality, Best-Hall® buildings can also be easily relocated if required. More than happy with their new facility, Bord na Mona are happy to discuss the attributes of the building and anyone interested should contact Lisa Furlong at lisa.furlong@bnm.ie. Meeting the demand for Magners Cider C&C Group is one of the UK’s largest manufacturers, marketers and distributors of branded beverages and savoury snacks. The company also exports a range of spirits and liqueurs, to over 80 overseas markets. When the group launched ‘Magners’ - the export brand of Bulmers cider - in the UK it soon became the fastest growing packaged cider in the country. The immense demand for Magners -not just in the UK, but also from Europe and the Middle East - took the Group slightly by surprise and their existing stock holding area became inadequate for the escalating production. An urgent solution was needed to ensure all the orders were met in a timely manner. John Hayes, Head of Logistics at the company’s Tipperary site, considered hiring offsite space, but decided against it due to previous experience with difficulties in controlling the stock and the additional expense in overheads such as transport costs. After approaching a couple of temporary building companies based in Ireland, John Hayes contacted Spaciotempo and visited the company’s UK headquarters in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. Several proposals, conversations and CAD drawings later, John was confident that Spaciotempo had the best product and most professional approach. At the Bulmers Tipperary site, Spaciotempo provided 7,500 sq metres of additional warehousing space made up of 5 buildings, 30metres wide by 50metres long and 6metres high, gutter linked together. Included within the building specification was a double skinned air-filled PVC Polyester coated roof and UPVC wall panels in green – both these systems considerably assisting the insulation factor. The buildings also included twelve personnel fire doors, five electric roller shutter doors and 135 40watt mercury lights! www.spaciotempo.co.uk June 2008 www.ukwa.org.uk

Temporary Storage 39 Spoilt for choice “You are literally spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the most suitable means of access for a smartspace temporary building,” says Anthony Hunt of Smart Space. He continues: “Because of the variety of uses, there are a number of access options we’ve come up with, to help users get the most out of their building. “For instance, by far and away the most popular method is the roller shutter door option, which can be supplied in either manual or three-phase electric format. You can have a roller shutter door fitted to either the sides of the building, or to the gable end of the building. “And depending upon the access width you need for your building, you can have the door up to a maximum of 7 metres in width, with a maximum height of 6 metres high. But if you don't need the security of a roller door, a cost-effective option is the PVC fork lift truck curtain, which is ideal if your site is secure, and the integrity of goods is not critical. “Another useful application is the undercover loading bay. We can supply an openended building to enable even the tallest lorries to drive underneath for loading and unloading, to enable staff to work in the dry, whatever the weather.” “Another option, which is great for moving large machinery or other goods in and out, is to use sliding steel doors because they offer the widest opening. We can provide temporary structures with steel doors up to 15 metres wide. “Finally, if you don’t need access for fork lifts or vehicles, you can opt for either single width opening or double opening lockable doors, in either steel, or glazed.” Ideal solution for Ideal Standard The UK’s top bathroom manufacturer, Ideal Standard, recently purchased another Rubb building to meet their rapidly expanding storage requirements. The manufacturer, which has eight plants sited throughout the UK, required additional storage space in 2002 when a 12metre x 30metre Rubb THA shelter was purchased and erected at the company’s Hull plant. Pleased with the product, price and flexibility of use that such re-locatable storage provided, Ideal Standard ordered an additional THA shelter late last year measuring 12metre x 42metre. Speaking for Ideal Standard, project manager, Neil Owen, said: “The flexibility of storage that the THA shelter provides enables Ideal Standard to better satisfy the needs of the market, especially when new trends and new ranges have to be catered for.” Need more space Let Spacemart help The Rubb organization, with production facilities in Great Britain, Norway and the United States is recognized as a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of relocatable structures and is quality certified to ISO9001: 2000. www.rubb.com Members are reminded that UKWA and Variation have created a space marketing and search service where members can advertise spare space and services and can search for flexible warehousing and associated resources. SPACE- MART matches demand for space and services with companies with spare warehousing capacity.
