Organisation : Utility Operations & Maintenance Services (UOMS) LTD

Location : Dublin

Requirement :

Dublin-based company Utility Operations and Maintenance Services Ltd (UOMS) provides operating and maintenance services to Dublin Bay Power Station. Responsible for managing a major overhaul at the power station, they required office and welfare accommodation for the 12 week duration of the project.  

With tight deadlines and site access issues, UOMS needed a turnkey solution for the supply and management of the accommodation to minimise disruption.   

Solution :

Following a strict tendering process, Allspace was chosen to supply a total of 49 buildings from its secure site accommodation range - tough, secure, galvanised steel buildings designed specifically for the most exposed and demanding sites.

Dave Carson, Technical Services Manager at UOMS, explains how the process worked for them: “In the lead-in to the overhaul, power station staff were busy preparing for the maintenance works whilst still operating the plant, so disruption to operations and drawing on staff resources were not an option. Having Allspace come in and provide full site services and total project management, including design, helped us greatly.”

Accommodation included open-plan office space, partitioned offices, meeting rooms, storage, canteen, plus accommodation unit, shower unit, toilet/wash units, changing/drying rooms, and a computer based training room with furniture and appliances.

Dave continues: “The quality and size of all products met with our requirements, along with the provision of additional materials such as furniture and electrical appliances, and the utility services such as electrical connections and plumbing.

"As with previous experiences of working with Allspace, I was very satisfied with the service and found the team and their sub-contractors to be friendly, helpful and responsive to all requests. Agreed response times, additional health and safety guidelines and deliveries were all adhered to, minimising the involvement of site staff and disruption to other activities on site.

"Another of our requirements was for all units to be electrically certified which was done, with the certificates displayed in each unit.”

Despite the tight deadline, the project was delivered on time and on budget.
