Children of Marafa

It is a pleasure to give donations to various charities and people in need and it is even better to receive feedback on how our donations have helped. We have supported the village of Marafa in Kenya for a couple of years now and we received the following email showing how our donation made a difference.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your continued support and standing with me to help the people in my community.
The global effects of the Covid 19 pandemic and the stringent measures to contain its spread has affected us all, infections and knock on effects resulting to job losses have hit hard already deprived families in the village.

Michael, this is how i managed to distribute and help with your donation:
{ All funds were sent at different times as need arose, exchange rates considered at times of money transfers }. Any one in the community is right to get our help whenever we are able to do so.

Education Support and its maintenance:
{ School fees, Books and Uniforms }

Learning institutions, Colleges and Schools were shut due to the pandemic best part of 2020 only to re open early 2021.

We continue to support children from last year with education, these are Kassim, Khadijah and Naila. This year we took on another two children, Kerry and Luke. All these children are from families that i know are struggling to put them to school. Parents have no steady employment, a situation that has been worsened with the pandemic.

Kassim: In his last year ( Form 4 ) at Mind Hills Secondary.
Paid from your donation in aid of his first term school fees, uniforms and books.

Khadijah: At Almersy Primary school, Mombasa.
Sent from your donation to pay for her first term school fees, books and uniform.

Naila: At Almersy Primary School, Mombasa.
Sent from your donation in aid of her school fees, books and uniforms.

Kerry: At Voi Girls Education Centre, a boarding Secondary School.
Sent from your donation in support of her first term school fees and books.

Luke: At Mt. Everest Primary School, Mombasa.
Sent from your donation in support of his first term school fees, books and uniform.

For these school going children, i try and follow up on their progress through their parents, i continue to support on any other need that arises.

Medicare and Health care Support:

To access good health care is still a big challenge in the village, diagnostics and treatment costs pose a big challenge to many who are financially deprived.

Some hospitals wouldn’t admit patients unless a deposit has been paid, a short fall to many to raise the required amounts.
Families turn to group funding from friends and Good Samaritans for help.

Michael, this is how i distributed and who you helped with your donation:

Mapenzi:
This middle aged lady was diagnosed with Large Uterine Fibroids and large ovarian cysts.
A 4 hour Myomectomy and Cystectomy surgery to remove the Fibroids and Cysts was done at Bomu Medical Center, Mombasa.
To facilitate the cost of the surgery, a group funding was done and a contribution was sent from your donation towards the main hospital bill.

Mr Yaa:
Admitted at Tawfiq Hospital in Malindi to treat his low blood levels and blood transfusion, low blood pressure, kidney stones and tests to treat his high PSA level.
A payment was sent from your donation to assist while in hospital. Unfortunately he passed away few days later on the 25th.Feb.2021. Group funding to raise funds to clear the hospital bill and towards funeral costs was done.

Mrs Shamun:
We have been supporting this lady since last year. A mother of three children struggling to pay for her treatment for arthritis, high blood pressure and duodenal ulcers.
A payment was sent for treatment and 50 for food support was sent from your donation.

Mr Jefwa:
In our support from last year. Needs regular treatment to manage his prostate enlargement illness.
A payment was sent to buy medicine from your donation in support to his long term treatment.

Mrs Margaret:
In our support from last year. Needs regular checks and treatment for Arthritis, blood level irregularities, duodenal ulcers and heart condition.
A payment was sent from your donation towards support for her treatment.

Mr Bori:
A family man left jobless and struggling to feed his family, also facing eviction from his house due to accumulated unpaid rent.
A payment was sent from your donation to assist him buy food stuff for his family.

Michael, i am grateful on behalf of those you reached to help at a tough time when most people were holding tight onto theirs, to those you helped who had nothing, little was more.

May you be blessed with abundance as you continue to give back and help others.

Thank you for your support.

Patrick.

We recently provided Illuminate with a new manufactured 24′ x 10′ open plan portable building which was delivered using a hi-ab craned vehicle.

Unfortunately the factory roof was not high enough to unload the building inside the factory, so we sent one of our teams down who unloaded the Jack Leg Cabin outside the factory and then skated it inside before leveling the building. Another very happy customer.

It’s nice to receive a huge thank you from one of your customers. In this instance, we provided a company in Cambridge with a 3 section used Portakabin Duplex modular building as a “Trade Sale.”

A Trade Sale, is when we sell a building in its existing condition and configuration at a significantly reduced price. We still deliver and safely install the building, but then it is the customer’s responsibility to make any alterations or upgrades as they require.

We successfully delivered and installed this building and immediately had the following feedback;

Good Morning Callum,

We hope all is well and good with you and the rest of the team at Portable Building Sales?

I write to you on behalf of J Shevlin Ltd to pass on our thanks for providing our new office here in Cambridge last week. The entire service we received from yourself, and the whole Portable Building Sales experience has been fantastic; from helping us visualise the buildings with videos, supporting us through the sales procedure, coming across to view our site and plan the delivery and lifts to our new location, and the eventual flawless delivery. We are very happy with the building and we now move into the exciting stages of fitting it out internally for our new office.

We cannot fault Portable Building Sales at all; we would definitely work with you again and we would certainly recommend you to anyone whom was looking for a very good building delivered to them.

Thank you

Yours Sincerely,
Michael Martin
Commercial Director

We were happy to be chosen to provide Southview School in Essex with one of our new manufactured Clearview Modular Classroom Buildings.

The building was safely and successfully installed onto concrete foundations in just one day and in challenging muddy conditions. The modular building included a 68m2 classroom area, a breakout room and a DDA compliant toilet and shower area.

Our customer was extremely pleased with our service from their enquiry to completion of the project and said;

“Just wanted to drop you a short note to say how delighted I am with the build! It’s been a challenge to get here (to say the least!!) but you’ve been fantastic, and very patient, throughout – thank you. There’s still a bit of work to do with getting everything connected but I’ll work on that next week!

We were delighted to recently win a contract to supply East Transportation Ltd with a new modular office facility. Our installation team were also pleased as this company is only located 30 miles from us, so they could travel home each evening.

Our client wanted additional office space that included a 10 person open plan office, a 2 person smaller office, a meeting room, a kitchen area and a toilet area that included a disabled facility.

We manufactured the building to the client’s specification and delivered and safely installed it in just one day. We spent a further three days completing our on-site works and our client used many of the services we are able to offer.

We were pleased to once again be approached by Fairfield Primary Academy in Nottingham to supply them with a further two classroom buildings. We previously supplied the school with a 3 section modular classroom building and they were so delighted with our product and service that they contacted us again to supply new matching buildings.

Malcolm Lucas the Head of Estates and Facilities ordered a 12m x 6m 2 section open plan classroom with a toilet and disabled toilet facility / entrance area and a 3 section open plan classroom with the same toilet facilities.

As part of our contract we were asked to also undertake the safe delivery and installation of the new modular buildings and the ground work requirements.

As you can see on the photographs, the entrance to the school was particularly tight, but having arranged a free site survey by the transport company, we were confident of successfully delivering the modules to their final location.

New portable building

We received an enquiry from The Park Lane Group who urgently needed an open plan 32′ x 10′ marketing suite complete with a small kitchen and w.c. area.

When we say urgently, they needed this new manufactured building delivered in just two weeks.

Being the flexible company that we are, we managed to re-arrange our production schedule to achieve their required date. The client wanted to fit their own unique sliding patio door to the building on their site, so we cut out the exact aperture and temporary weather sealed it for transportation.

The building had to be delivered first thing on a Monday morning, so we arranged for it to be collected on Friday afternoon and stored it over the weekend.

“People learn through horses”

Martin Clunes is patron of The Fortune Centre For Riding Therapy near Christchurch in Dorset. This organisation does extremely valuable work, motivating young people through contact and involvement with equestrian life.

We have just supplied them with a new timber clad two section modular building, to further develop their facilities. We were delighted to tackle this unusual installation, as our experienced and capable installation team were keen to help provide a valuable modular building facility..

We had to install the building into a particularly tight space, under an existing low canopy. Final positioning  could only be made using two forklift trucks.

The RAM’s health & Safety documentation for this installation project demonstrates our careful installation procedures.  Fortune Rams Install

Due to the sheer size and weight of this enormous 60′ x 13′ jackleg cabin, it required to be craned into position, instead of using a typical hi-ab vehicle.

The self contained unit features an open plan office area, toilets, kitchen, and is fitted out with air conditioning.

Built with 6 jacklegs instead of the usual 4 to provide added support, we also manufactured the building in just 6 weeks for Whites Properties. 

It demonstrates that it’s ‘all white’ to go to this size in an individual cabin, and also that we can provide brand new bespoke cabin space at short notice.

We seem to have hit upon a real foodie themed portable cabin sales period recently.

The Wise Herb company asked for a cabin kitchen facility to be installed right inside their factory.

As you can see, it was snowing at the time, but as the main photo illustrates it was no problem for us.

Moving swiftly on, we have just delivered another 20′ x 10′ cabin to Glanbia Cheese, the leading mozzarella cheese manufacturing company in Europe and we were pleased to offer our usual excellent service.

Additionally, in this blog we’ll mention another couple of recently delivered cabins. One has been installed within 5 weeks of initial order, eliciting this response:

“A quick email to show you my new cabin. I’m really pleased with it … thank you for getting to me quickly. It’s a fabulous cabin… thank you again”

Jeff and Sunny Cornock

A further portable cabin delivery was to Beech House in Ripon. Again, we delivered this portable building very quickly, as required, within a mere three weeks of the initial enquiry.

This delivery prompted another lovely testimonial from another satisfied customer:

“Exceptional service and care from the first call to delivery. I would not hesitate in recommending Portable Building Sales for their care and build quality”.

A2B Online, based in Felixstowe, are moving from their current site near Felixstowe Port to a new location at Orwell Crossing and required a new office complex on site. They had originally designed a permanent building, but the cost indications alerted them to other potential building solutions.

The company approached us via a recommendation from Smeets Ferries who we have previously supplied a building to, and our modular building plan proved a very attractive alternative proposition.

We took the floor plan design from their original permanent building plans and applied it to a bespoke five section modular building.

The building and foundations have been constructed with the future in mind so that a second storey can be added in due course, as and when further expansion is required.

This building features from a large open plan office, meeting room, director’s office, drivers’ break out room, wet rooms, toilets and it is fully DDA compliant.

It is entirely possible to make a bespoke modular building to mirror and even further elaborate on the features within a potential permanent building design.

If you’re at this stage of company development, why not give us a call? You will be surprised at the cost advantages, and the wide variety of aesthetic possibilities, too.

Modular buildings… not merely a cheaper solution, but a very CLEVER solution.

In quick succession we manufactured, delivered and installed two brand new 48’ x 12’ jackleg cabins.

Spectrum Freight:

Spectrum already had a 48’ x 12’ jackleg cabin on site and required more equivalent office space. We manufactured and supplied a brand new 48’ x 12’ jackleg to their precise specification.

Spectrum Freight are a transport company who collected the building themselves once it was finished. They collected the building with a very impressive artic hi-ab craned vehicle which fully supported the building.

Once the building arrived In Chesterfield, we were present at the delivery to install the building and link through to their current jackleg cabin.

Felixstowe Port Containers:

Felixstowe required a new office building onsite and decided to go for a brand new manufactured 48’ x 12’ for their new offices.

This building was manufactured to their bespoke specification which features a main office, manager’s office, kitchen and toilets and was complete with heat / cool air conditioning.

Topline cabins contacted us looking for a cost effective modular building solution. We had a building available, located in Anglesey, North Wales, not too far from Holyhead port. The location made it ideal for Topline to get the building transported across the Irish Sea.

We supplied the building on a trade sale basis and allowed the building to be decommissioned and removed by Topline. The client loaded the building onto their transport and ferried it to Dublin.

The building’s new home will be a construction yard.

Booker and Best asked us to provide this jackleg cabin as an IT server room to St Richard’s Catholic School in East Sussex. With Air conditioning units to keep the servers cool, we were also perfectly cool and OK about storing this unit at short notice as a friendly gesture, when the delivery requirements were unexpectedly delayed.

It’s in our nature to provide the best possible service, no matter what the size of the job. It’s heartening to have this regularly recognised … as in this case:

Good morning all,

 

I am pleased to say that the delivery and positioning of the cabin to the school this morning went without a hitch.

I was particularly impressed in the fact that Bill took the time to have a look at the delivery area yesterday so he knew exactly what was required with regards access and so on. The space where the unit was being placed was in between two brick built buildings with not a lot of space for manoeuvre. Bill managed to get it in there without a scratch to either the unit or the existing buildings with military precision and everything was carried out with Health & Safety in mind for both himself and anybody in the immediate area.  

I would like to thank Bill for the excellent job carried out this morning and to everybody at Portable Building Supplies for their assistance and patience in dealing with this job. Both our customer and Booker & Best Ltd are extremely pleased with the unit being exactly as specified and quoted for .

I hope that we will all have the opportunity to do more business in the future.

Regards

Andy Miller

Maintenance & Small Works Contracts Manager

We fully refurbished this pre-owned four section modular building, to IT Fleet’s specific requirements.

IT Fleet have bought some modular buildings from us previously. They subsequently required further office space on site and came back to us with their latest proposals.

We supplied this pre-owned four section modular building… completely refurbished at our premises… to IT Fleet’s specifications.

Unique to this building, we fitted a number of internal glazed partitions, as seen in the photos.

This building features an open plan office area, meeting room, manager’s office, kitchen and toilets.

We have the capacity to provide such unique buildings, thoroughly refurbished to a high standard, to meet your exact requirements.

A consistently high level of repeat custom highlights the reassuring recognition of our excellent quality products and our attentive customer service.

This is merely a sample of a number of repeat orders in the last few months:

Servomex – They received a brand new 40’ x 10’ cabin early 2017 and were so impressed they ordered a brand new cabin, same size and specification just with an extra door.

PD Ports – They purchased a new cabin from us back in 2010. Like so many others they subsequently required further new space and came straight back to us. The latest 40′ x 12′ building is a welfare facility for the workers on site. The latest building features a canteen, changing room, toilet and DDA compliant toilet.

Autism Anglia – The society purchased our stock 32’ x 10’ jackleg cabin earlier this year and then required another small classroom space. They came back to us without hesitation for a 16′ x 9′ jackleg cabin that they could use to take small groups to one side for extra learning.

Goodrich Control Systems – Goodrich have purchased a number of modular buildings and jackleg cabins from us in the past and came back yet again with their latest requirement. This time they required a small office building at very short notice.

True to the excellent reputation and relationship we have formed with Goodrich, we moved heaven and earth to ensure the building was manufactured and delivered to their site in just three weeks!

Why not join the Portable Building Sales client list?  We will look after you in a similarly exemplary way.

With installations across the country, and our reputation for service and reliability to maintain, we’ve invested in another new van. Our installation teams are, after all, a driving force within our company!

This new Mercedes Sprinter LWB van has a host of features, and a comfort level that’s more limousine than van like.

It’s a reminder of how far technology has progressed – and parallels the developments which make our modular buildings so comfortable, light and airy.

We like to keep building for the future, on every level.

If it’s not the VATman, it’s Batman!

All for a fantastic local cause, though…

Just as our accountant Stuart Watts was enjoying his Monday morning after becoming a grandad for the first time at the weekend, then in comes Hull Batman into our office to extract another Christmas donation for ill and under privileged children.

Hull Batman does a wonderful job giving up his crime fighting time to buy and distribute toys and selection boxes to the many children who need them most.

This is the second Christmas we have donated to the Hull Batman cause and we are happy to help again. For more details about this worthy cause, see our blog from last year. Also available on facebook.

Blyth Star needed a canteen / office extension to their original building, purchased from us last year.

We looked at various options together, and a cabin was the most convenient and cost effective addition, linked through to the original modular 2 bay.

The company wished to fit out the open plan building with their own kitchen design – it was the 40′ x 12′ cabin solution that made it all a cost effective viable option.

Customers are not always aware that we can link and match cabin / modular buildings in this way – it could well be a solution to suit your needs?

Totts Nursery were delighted to receive a complete new nursery unit over the October half term. They’d had a difficult time coping with nursery provision within the main building after the demolition of the old nursery buildings.

This new building has a large open plan area, wet play area, kitchen, disabled / adult and children’s toilets, entrance lobby and cloakroom. It is one of the most bespoke buildings we’ve supplied, with a host of particular features.

Planning and ground works were completed by us too, so we provided the complete package from beginning to completion.

The school community are delighted with their new nursery – and we always get a warm glow helping the next generation with the light and airy learning environment they deserve.

This building was sold on as a trade sale, in its existing configuration and condition. It was installed in 2 days by our experienced team, and the new owner was delighted by the current excellent unworn interior and exterior.

There was no particular refurbishment necessary, and we are always happy to sell on without extensive modifications to the existing buildings, though we obviously have the capacity to do so.

It’s always worth enquiring if we have this sort of building in stock, as it’s a very cost effective accommodation solution, when available.

It’s always nice to help a small local football club and we get a kick out of supporting communities. So we offered a very good deal on this changing facility. We were, apparently, significantly cheaper than our competitors.

With home and away changing, shower and toilet, plus access for the public via a third entrance to toilet facilities, this was exactly what the customer required.

Resplendent in thermowood cladding, with entrance canopies, skirts and steps to match, this is a changing facility to be proud of.

Fair play – a fantastic building at a fantastic price.

Another example of a bespoke building constructed to our customer’s size requirements, the bay lengths are usually 8.5 m – however these were 8.3 m, as requested.

We very rarely provide a black building, so we were interested to see how this turned out. It actually looks very smart finished with Thermowood cladding and stained black. The colour choice was stipulated in the planning application and used to match the existing groundsman storage facility.

Installed using track-way and a crane to access the site location, this 2 bay Clearview building features a shower and toilet room, office and kitchenette and is to be used as a welfare facility for the groundsmen who work at the college.

Dark on the outside, this superb Clearview building has the light, airy and modern interior that features within all of our buildings.

Our installation and removal team are having another very busy week next week. They’re delivering, installing and commissioning a new 3 bay nursery from Saturday through to Tuesday, at Tottington.

This is a bespoke building, with the client having been deeply involved in the design of the nursery school building.

Overlapping this installation, we’re installing a 2 bay Clearview building at JAG UFS in Feltam, London. This building is actually being installed inside the main factory building. Delivery is at  6:30 am Tuesday morning and we will be skating the building into their factory then linking it into the current offices. It will feature three offices and a board room for the Director and his staff.

Overlapping this, we will be removing a double classroom building for Emanuel School in Battersea, London. Decommissioning of this double classroom is to happen on Wednesday, with the building to be lifted out Thursday and delivered back to Hull on Friday.

This building had to be removed w/c 16th October so we have arranged for it to be done,  despite the two buildings above being installed.

Our installation and removal teams will certainly be pleased when they’ve successfully completed such a varied set of tasks around the country!

Although we’re known primarily as a provider of new and pre-owned buildings, we also purchase and safely remove them.

Emanuel school in Battersea, London contacted us, looking to sell their double classroom modular building. They were looking for the removal to be done in a couple of weeks. These were tight timelines, but nevertheless we fitted it in at short notice, around our installation programmes.

When we undertake removal, we look after everything, arranging and incurring all the costs involved with decommissioning the building, craning out, and transporting back to Hull. We offer a free site survey along with all the health and safety documentation involved in the decommissioning process.

In this instance we also offered a small amount for the building. Through using our professional expertise, there was no hassle and complete peace of mind for the school.

If you have a building surplus to your requirements, why not ask us to quote you?
