Location : Nationwide, Ireland

Requirement :

The Construction Workers Health Trust is a registered construction industry charity which provides free medical checks for workers on building sites across Ireland. The Trust needed to source robust, hygienic portable buildings for its interim on-site health clinics. The facilities are staffed by qualified nurses and are located on building sites for two to three weeks, allowing workers to call in for free medical checkups.

Solution :

Brian Daly, CEO of the Construction Workers Health Trust, says: “We had some very specific requirements for these buildings, all of which Allspace was able to meet. We needed three buildings for each region in which we operate; one to house the on-site coordinator and two to house the occupational health nurses. They needed to be fitted out with a large counter, storage units, electrical sockets, heating and air conditioning and a fridge. We also wanted the exteriors painted in our own livery. The buildings needed to be very secure too, since some of the sophisticated diagnostic equipment we use is very expensive.”

Allspace was able to provide precisely what the Trust was looking for. Nine secure site accommodation buildings were supplied on hire, three each for the Trust’s south, east and west Ireland operations. Using its own transport fleet, Allspace delivers these buildings to the sites where they are required, installs them and sets them up ready for use. After two or three weeks, Allspace removes the buildings and takes them to the next site or back to its nearest depot for cleaning, servicing and storage until they are required again.

Brian continues: “Allspace was very flexible in meeting our needs. They are very reliable and responsive to our requests. We just give them a couple of days notice and they get the buildings to where we need them, right on time. The fact that they have their own transport fleet saves a lot of time and hassle for us.”

Allspace has depots in each of the three areas in which the Trust operates, providing local bases for storing its buildings. This is a valuable resource, since the Trust does not have space to store buildings at its own premises. The buildings contain sensitive and costly portable diagnostic equipment, and Allspace has proved very adept at handling and transporting them with the care they require.

Brian adds: “Our nurses have been delighted with the buildings so far. They find that they heat up very well in the cold weather and the air-conditioning systems ensure they remain comfortable during the summer too. Importantly for a health facility, the buildings are easy to clean and disinfect, with wipe-clean walls, floors and surfaces – helping us to maintain a hygienic environment.

“Overall, Allspace has been very amenable and approachable and the service provided has been excellent. They respond very quickly to resolve any issues that arise and the hire arrangements have been adapted to meet our particular requirements perfectly.”
