Modular Connections

When Bridgend County Borough Council identified the need for new, high quality nursery facilities, Portakabin, with its reputation for exceptional levels of service, provided the ideal solution in the shape of its Lilliput nursery building – specially designed to meet the needs of young children.

The Welsh Assembly’s Flying Start scheme, which aims to give children aged 0-3 the best possible start in life by providing access to high quality services, required two new nursery buildings to accommodate 40 young children within 16 weeks.

The delivery of the buildings within this timescale was absolutely crucial to the successful delivery of the project in the area.

Tina Haddon, Flying Start Co-ordinator at Bridgend County Borough Council, explains, ‘It was critical that the new nurseries were delivered within 16 weeks to enable us to quickly start providing childcare provision in the area in line with the objectives of the Flying Start project.

However, it was equally important that the company we worked with had the ability to provide high quality buildings, which wouldn’t be compromised by the short lead time. After meeting with the Portakabin team it was clear that their level of knowledge and expertise in the education sector was excellent. This provided us with the peace of mind that the buildings would meet all of our needs, be delivered on time and that the project would run smoothly.’
