The Irish Government’s new scheme to provide free nursery places for all three to five year-olds has created huge demand for new nursery buildings across the country. In the village of Carrigaline, Little Einstein’s Nursery did not have enough space in its existing building to cater for all the local children now entitled to free places. A new nursery building was needed very quickly to meet demand.
Janice Edwards, Director of Little Einstein’s Nursery, says: “We needed the building at very short notice, and we also expected that our needs would change in future, which is why hiring a modular building was deemed the best option. It gave us the flexibility we needed, as well as the short lead time.”
“We requested quotes from a number of building suppliers, including Portakabin. We visited the Portakabin Hire Centre to see for ourselves the quality of Portakabin buildings on offer – and we were very impressed. This, combined with the experience of dealing with the people at Portakabin, was the reason we chose them to supply our new nursery building.”
Portakabin designed a Portakabin Titan building layout that fulfilled all of the nursery’s requirements. The Portakabin Titan is the largest stand-alone modular building in Europe. Its large open-plan interior can be adapted to meet the demands of a variety of applications.
For Little Einstein’s Nursery, Portakabin recommended a 54m2 Titan building, which was configured to include a large nursery room for up to 20 children, three toilets to cater for staff and children and a lobby. The building’s entrance and fire doors were repositioned to meet the nursery’s particular requirements, and other adjustments were made to create a bespoke nursery facility for the children of Carrigaline.“We are all very happy with the quality of the building. The children have settled in well and the staff are absolutely delighted with the standard of facility it provides. It means we can now deliver a high-quality nursery environment for all the local children who need it.”Janice Edwards, Director, Little Einstein’s Nursery
