Timperley is a suburban village in Altrincham, southwest of Manchester. Its local Co-op Food supermarket plays an important part in keeping the local community stocked in provisions. As part of a £700,000 makeover which will create four new jobs, the permanent store will benefit from an enhanced in-store bakery, Costa coffee dispenser, hot food and an increased focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, wines and essentials. While the refurbishment takes place, Co-op Food required a temporary store to be installed in the car park. Portakabin specialises in this; providing much needed space quickly, with no compromise on quality.
Candice Everingham, Area Hire Manager for Portakabin comments: “This type of tight turnaround is our speciality – we know how to make it happen. In order to ensure the buildings were installed without a hitch, we craned them in at 5am on a weekend morning due to restrictions around the site. It was vital for Co-op Food to be able to provide on-going convenience for its customers throughout this refurbishment project and maintain a level of retention and loyalty within the local community.
"We’re delighted to have been able to be part of ensuring Co-op Food remains an important player in the local community in Timperley.”
Having no presence in the town for up to six weeks while our main store was refurbished would have been a real problem for us. Thanks to Portakabin, a temporary store meant we stayed open to serve our local community. Customer feedback was very positive and has left a lasting impression in the town. The reopening of our refurbished store was a great success thanks to the quick turnaround on our temporary premises.

Key requirements for the project were to incorporate the structure of an existing two-storey modular ward block into the new scheme; to minimise disruption to the adjacent hospital building.
