When appearances matter, Portakabin buildings provide the quality and visual appeal to make a positive first impression

Organisation : Glanbia Ireland

Product : Titan, Ultima

Location : Kilkenny

Requirement :

Glanbia plc is a global nutrition company headquartered in Ireland, employing over 6,000 people in 32 countries and selling or distributing products in more than 130 countries. Glanbia Ireland appointed PM Group to manage the construction of a major new milk processing plant in Kilkenny.  

The scale of the programme meant that extensive on-site project offices were required for both Glanbia Ireland staff and the construction management team, as well as welfare facilities for the site-based workforce.

Solution :

John Clancy, Senior Project Manager at PM Group, says: “The appearance of the new building was extremely important, as it would be prominently located and would provide a vital first impression of the site for any visitors, suppliers or contractors. We believe the quality of on-site buildings reflects on the quality of the work we carry out for clients, so it’s vital that they have real visual appeal.  

“We had used Portakabin buildings in the past, so we knew what to expect in terms of building quality and service. The company’s on-time delivery promise was also an important factor, given our tight deadline, and the buildings it proposed offered everything we needed.” 

Portakabin supplied a range of premium-quality modular buildings to meet the various requirements of this prestigious site. The energy-efficient, eye-catching Ultima building system was used to create a large open-plan building, with offices and meeting rooms for around 30 people, fully equipped with IT data connections.  

Portaloo toilet buildings and a spacious Titan building completed the 400m2 of new facilities, incorporating an induction centre, security building and toilet block for site workers.   

John adds: “In line with its promise, Portakabin delivered all the buildings on time, ensuring our works programme could proceed on schedule. The large number of sub-contractors on site meant that safety was a significant challenge, but Portakabin managed the whole building installation very efficiently and safely.” 

The Portakabin buildings will provide a comfortable, well-equipped working environment for Glanbia and PM Group staff throughout the two-year construction project.  

“We are very pleased with the buildings provided by Portakabin, which meet all of our quality requirements and provide a positive first impression for visitors to the site. We were impressed by the service from the team at Portakabin, who were eager to work closely with us and ensure they fulfilled all our needs.”
