Hinkley Point C is the first nuclear power station to be built in the UK in nearly 30 years. Once completed, it will supply 7% of the UK’s electricity. The latest contract awarded to Portakabin was for a 3,450m2 office and welfare building. This building provides facilities of the highest standards for the increasing number of staff and contractors working on the Hinkley Point C project.
The three-storey ‘East Office Annex’ provides desk space for more than 220 staff working on the civil construction; meeting and IT rooms; welfare accommodation for the site workforce including 1,200 lockers, changing rooms, showers, and drying space; and a 450-seat multi-use canteen which will serve around 1,350 meals a day. The project offices were built and fitted out to create a high specification working environment, with ventilation and climate control systems, fire alarms, emergency lighting, data communications, and a lift for disabled access to the upper floors. To reduce work on the Hinkley Point C site, which is one of the UK’s largest and most complex construction projects, Portakabin installed 90 fully-fitted, steel-frame modules in just three weeks.
Portakabin met all our requirements for build quality, design, flexibility, stringent health and safety standards, and speed of delivery. We wanted an interim building that would maintain the high standard of office accommodation and welfare facilities that we already have on this site.
Rapid Energy required an office area and a kitchenette that was airy and light, creating a comfortable workplace for employees at Rapid Energy. As a fast-growing business, the client required a building that meets their current needs and can be easily upscaled for future growth.
