  1. The Requirements

    A new wakeboarding centre opened in August 2017 and is part of the £1 billion transformation of Dundee City Waterfront.

    Foxlake recommended market-leading modular construction expert Portakabin to Dundee City Council for the project after working closely with the Portakabin team on the Foxlake sister site at Dunbar, East Lothian.

    Providing a high quality, high specification outdoor environment was vital for Foxlake. The centre caters for the entire Dundee community and aims to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for all who use it. As well as developing sport locally, the centre will also deliver social programmes with local schools and community groups.

  2. The Solution

    Working with Dundee City Council, modular expert Portakabin delivered an exciting new wakeboarding hub for the waterfront redevelopment with Foxlake.

    Portakabin engineered a modern, multi-use building to complement Foxlake’s vision.

    The new site, located on City Quay, Dundee, is three modular buildings which Portakabin designed and installed to host a shop, reception, office, changing facilities, showers, toilets and disabled facilities.

    Additional glazing to the reception and retail elevations of the building allow more natural light to flood the busiest areas. Previous experience with the Dunbar site allowed Portakabin to spec more robust fittings for areas with high footfall. The external finish was completed with timber fencing, Foxlake branding, decking and a canopy.

After commissioning Portakabin to supply and install bespoke shower, changing and toilet blocks for our site in Dunbar, East Lothian and finding them a very professional company to work alongside, with an excellent after sales service, we did not hesitate in recommending them to Dundee City Council as a potential supplier of buildings for the Dundee project. Our existing buildings at Dunbar have been in operation for three seasons now, and have had tens of thousands of customers using them, proving they are as robust as they come. Again, Portakabin has not disappointed and we are extremely happy with the finished article we have at Foxlake Dundee.
