Organisation : Ericsson

Application : Offices

Product : Duplex

Location : Athlone

Requirement :

The Ericsson Software Campus is the largest Java software house in Ireland, with more than 750 engineers responsible for delivering the Operator Support System. The system is the global market leader in mobile telecoms network management; delivered into 320 operators in 150 countries, managing over 1 billion subscribers.

With existing office space at the campus in need of modernisation, 150 software engineers required a short-term building. The interim solution needed to be of a suitable standard to accommodate a high-end mechanical and electrical fit out and security was of paramount importance.

Solution :

Mark Bourke, of Mark Bourke Consulting, explains what the priorities were for Ericsson: “We needed to source a building large enough to comfortably accommodate the amount of staff and equipment, for the two year duration of the modernisation project. Due to the high-spec nature of the equipment and the sensitivity of the software and intellectual property stored there, quality and security was critical. Portakabin Allspace satisfied all those requirements.”

Portakabin Allspace created the spacious, open-plan 707m2 office using Duplex Modular buildings, which have an internal height of 2.7m and large windows. They added washroom facilities in an adjoining Portaloo toilet block. Delivery of a turn-key furniture package completed the order.

Mark continues: “Although the Portakabin Allspace product was marginally more expensive than some others we considered, the benefits far outweighed this, with more flexibility in the open plan design, superior warranties and full building regulation compliance provided. And we certainly made the right decision because the customer service response throughout the project matched the excellent quality of the product.

Portakabin Allspace met the very tight timescale, amid tough conditions. The building was installed close to Christmas on a working site, with no disruption to existing operations.
