RG Group chooses Allspace anti-vandal buildings to meet demanding quality requirements of prestigious Ikea construction project

When retail construction specialist RG Group was contracted to build a major warehouse extension to the new Ikea store in Dublin, the company needed to find high-quality site accommodation to house its workforce for the duration of the six-month project. As a well-established and growing construction firm, RG Group sets high standards for its on-site buildings – meaning that quality and service, as well as cost, were key criteria in its search for a building supplier.

Solution :

Following a competitive tender process, Ireland’s leading portable and modular building specialist Allspace was chosen to provide the site accommodation for the Ikea project.

Mike Schofield, Costs Manager at RG Group, says: “Allspace came up with a competitive price, but also offered buildings that met all of the quality standards we expect for our site buildings. As a result, we hired all of the office, mess room, drying room, toilet and storage buildings we needed for the entire project from Allspace.”

The robust, anti-vandal site buildings supplied by Allspace provide comfortable, secure accommodation for every construction site application. The all-steel buildings are designed to withstand the rigours of even the busiest and most exposed sites, providing welcoming office and break-out areas for workers on site, as well as secure storage facilities for valuable tools and equipment. The office and mess room buildings are fully electrically tested before installation, and are fitted with kitchen areas and carpets. 

Allspace provided all the chairs and tables required for the mess rooms, as well as fitting out the drying rooms with lockers, bench seating and coat hooks.

The company delivered all 14 buildings to site on the agreed date, and connected and installed them ready for immediate use. Some buildings were stacked to optimise the space available on site, with robust external staircases fitted to provide safe access.

In total, RG Group hired three offices, three mess rooms and drying room buildings, two toilet buildings, five secure storage containers and one site security office. At the peak of the 26-week project, these buildings will cater for up to 50 on-site workers.

Mike adds: “The service provided by Allspace was excellent. We built up a good working relationship with the local Allspace team, who listened to our requirements and delivered exactly the accommodation we needed. During the hire period they have been very responsive and are always quick to resolve any issues. The buildings themselves are far better than many site units I have used in the past, and they are performing well on our busy site.”
