Commenting on the agreement AV Group MD Helen Scott said: “We will be providing Castleoak with bespoke site accommodation for its contractors and sub-contractors which will be used at various development sites over the next five years. We have already begun to deliver and install units to eight sites including Bristol, Stratford Upon Avon, London, Newbury, Worcester and Kidderminster. The programme will see these units re-used by Castleoak at its future sites as they come live. We are really proud to have been selected to partner them on this volume of work which could total up to 45 sites overall.

The site accommodation for Castleoak is being built in Nottingham by AV Group’s sister company Danzer Ltd. It will be made to the highest specification and will meet the requirements of the Considerate Constructor scheme. The units will include office space, meeting rooms with presentation capabilities, washrooms and showers, locker facilities and leisure areas. Features include increased insulation to walls, ceilings and floors, double glazed windows, PIR controlled lighting, timers to all heating and water reduction features.  AV Group is also fitting out the units with the Castleoak branding and is supplying furniture as part of the deal.

David Thomas of Castleoak added: “We chose AV Group to partner us on this raft of projects because we are confident that they can deliver exactly what we need when we need it every time. They also showed that they could meet our exacting sustainability standards for eco-friendly site accommodation and we were impressed with their ability to roll the programme out as required, which will often be at relatively short notice.”

AV Group will be responsible for the design, manufacture, installation and removal of all of the accommodation over the five-year period.

AV Group specialises in providing modular and site accommodation for construction firms, hospitals, sports clubs and schools. It manufactures all of its stock in the UK at its sister company Danzer Ltd in Nottingham and invests up to £1m each year in replenishing its 4,000 unit hire fleet.
