Mansell Construction - Case Study

Energy-saving site accommodation is embraced in Andover

Organisation : Mansell Construction


Location : Hampshire

Requirement :

When Mansell Construction Southern required high-quality site accommodation, it immediately appointed Konstructa Hire to supply site facilities for workers undertaking major refurbishment work at a residential home.

The £1.6 million demolition and rebuild project of Copper Beeches Older People's Home in Andover, Hampshire, meant that high-quality office and recreation facilities were required on site for 10 months to accommodate over 20 workers.

Working on behalf of Hampshire County Council, Mansell Construction Southern ordered two, 30 by 10 foot Konstructa Energy-Saver buildings that delivered significant cost savings and a 32% reduction in energy use compared to traditional site cabins.

Solution :

Daniel Coniam, Site Manager at Mansell Construction Southern says: "We were really impressed by the specification of the units Konstructa Hire could supply.

"The accommodation needed to be high-quality yet competitively priced, with low operating costs but also environmentally friendly to meet criteria within the Considerate Constructors Scheme."

The Konstructa Energy-Saver site accommodation features energy efficient lighting measures, including high frequency lighting with time clocks and Passive Infrared (PIR) motion detection sensors, to ensure lights are always switched off when they aren't needed. Improved heat transmission values and lower heating bills are also delivered through the use of double glazed tinted glass.

Designed to reduce water wastage and deliver significant water usage cost savings, the ground floor toilet features low volume dual flush WC / urinal cisterns and push button taps.

Daniel added: "We were really impressed with the cost savings resulting from the environmental features of the innovative units. By reducing energy consumption on a daily basis the benefits of saving money and minimising impact on the environment will be considerable over the duration of the project."

The buildings were double stacked due to space constraints on the site and Konstructa Hire provided and fitted all the necessary staircases.

With a commitment to outstanding customer service, Konstructa Hire delivered and installed the accommodation on the agreed date - enabling the construction project to begin on schedule.

"The accommodation has exceeded all our expectations. We have been really impressed with the specification of the Konstructa Energy-Saver buildings. They help to minimise operating costs ensuring the site is being run as efficiently as possible. We are just as delighted with the professional customer service we have received from Konstructa Hire throughout. "
