Mobile Mini UK is the UK division of Mobile Mini Inc, the world’s leading provider of portable storage solutions. Mobile Mini was founded in the USA in 1983 and now has locations in the US, Canada and in the UK.

Although the Mobile Mini name is fairly new to the UK, being established here only in 2006, our roots run deep in the UK’s portable storage and accommodation industry, with some of our predecessor companies having been founded in the early 1970’s. Today, we have a national network of 16 sites with over 37,000 portable units which provide site accommodation and secure storage solutions to approximately 11,300 customers including construction companies, retailers, manufacturers, hospitals, schools, utility companies, distributors, local and national government, hotels, restaurants, entertainment and shopping complexes and individual households to name but a few.

In December 2016 Mobile Mini acquired container company Mr Box, based near Ipswich and servicing customers...

Bugler Developments “ Bugler Developments provide residential and commercial buildings for both the public and private sector, throughout the London and South East area. Mobile Mini are a preferred supplier for the company’s onsite accommodation and storage needs, across their many projects. As well as a number of medium site set ups, Mobile Mini was instructed to install a significant number of units at Bugler’s biggest project to date at London Road, Hounslow. Our drivers and yard operatives did an excellent job of installing the site, as was noted by Steve Smith, Buyer at Bugler who said, “It was a refreshing change to find out from the guys on site that a company and their operatives have exceeded expectations. Thanks for going the extra mile for us”. View video testimonial here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCMOzCFShWs ”

HB Projects Ltd

HB Projects Ltd

HB Projects Ltd are a multi-disciplinary Principal Contractor, that work on a diverse range of construction projects throughout the UK, particularly for the Industrial, Retail and Commercial sectors. The company required site accommodation facilities for their employees, who were building a Co-op Store in Kirton in Lindsey, North Lincolnshire.

HB Projects discussed their needs with a dedicated account manager from Mobile Mini. As a result, we provided stacked 32ft units with a staircase, that provided comfortable office, drying room and canteen facilities for staff on-site, as well as a toilet block.

Mobile Mini’s health and safety team provided the necessary risk assessment and lifting plan beforehand. The units were then delivered and installed, by our Immingham branch using a lorry mounted loader crane vehicle.

HB Projects were very pleased with the end result.



Tyne and Wear Metro’s new bridge is inst

Tyne and Wear Metro’s new bridge is inst

Story Contracting, on behalf of Nexus, installed the new Killingworth Road Metro Bridge in Tyne and Wear. One of the biggest engineering projects in the Metro’s history.


 
 

The old bridge which connects Newcastle and North Tyneside, which dated back to the Victorian era, needed to be replaced due to its age. It was demolished at the start of the project to make way for the new bridge. The work formed part of the £350m Metro all change modernisation programme to modernise the railway’s ageing infrastructure.

The new bridge, which weighs 370 tonnes, was assembled on a nearby site compound and then was moved into position on a multi-wheeled lifting rig, which utilised two secure, anti-vandal, steel storage containers. The containers offered a perfect solution due to their height, width and strength.

The bridge was then secured on to its new concrete abutments and made ready for the scheduled re-opening of the Metro line between South Gosforth and Shiremoor on Sunday 3 September – the scheduled end of the 34 day major line closure.

Commercial Director, Alan Huddart at Story Contracting, said: “This has been one the biggest engineering projects in Metro’s 37 year history.

“A huge amount of planning and work has gone into making this project a success, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of Mobile Mini. As always, they supplied us quality storage containers which were a fundamental part of the project. We were working within an extremely tight time frame, and Mobile Mini were able to meet our requirements and were flexible in their solution, which all contributed towards the success of the project”.

 



Heritage Building & Conservation Ltd

Heritage Building & Conservation Ltd

Heritage Building & Conservation (York) Ltd, a specialist conservation and restoration contractor, have been awarded a contract to work on Manchester Cathedral, a historical building in need of repair and maintenance.

The tower at the west end of Manchester Cathedral is currently in a poor condition and in urgent need of repair. The majority of the works will be in relation to the repair and consolidation of the masonry on the elevations of the tower including: stone de-scaling; the addressing of loose stone; louvres replacement; re-instatement of masonry; the removal / treatment of vegetation to the tower; the checking of the tower pinnacle and tower roof replacement.

During the project, the highly skilled team completing the work will be on site for approximately 12 months.

On-site facilities were needed, from a secure storage container to store safely site equipment such as tools and materials, as well as canteen facilities and an office to work from.

As space was limited, the solution was to install the two units onto a gantry 5ft from the ground. A risk assessment and site survey had to be completed to ensure the gantry could take the heavy load and would be safe for the long period of time.

Contracts Manager, Marcus Walker said: “We have worked with Mobile Mini on several projects to date and they have always met our expectations. This time with the added complex of the gantry installation, they didn’t fail to impress. All the assessment work prior to installation was of a professional nature, the delivery was to a high standard and both units are fit for purpose.”



AMCO Giffen

AMCO Giffen

The team at AMCO Giffen were contracted by National Rail to complete some essential maintenance and strengthening works to the Kirkgate Station and Ings Road bridges in Wakefield.

Due to the temporary nature of the work, and nocturnal requirements of the team, traditional office spaces were neither suitable nor available so a short-term solution was required.

With teams of up to 50 people working on the project at its peak, mainly overnight during the weekend, it was essential to ensure that all facilities were provided.

As such we installed:

  • Welfare facilties
  • A 32ft double-stacked unit complex to act as the briefing room and main office
  • A 32ft double-stacked unit complex to act as a canteen and drying room
  • A 24ft conference room to hold private meetings with senior teams and clients
  • Two 20ft storage units for equipment

Working on a very small site, it was important to understand the layout and requirements of the client meaning working as a team was vital.

Site manager Nigel Hodgson said: “We’ve got to work and plan together to ensure we make the job as safe, efficient and effective as possible.

“Working with Mobile Mini has been fantastic; from a number of site visits to changing dates due to external influences, the team have worked with us to make sure the whole project ran smoothly.

Health and safety is paramount to us, so working with a company that puts it above everything else is key. What impresses me about Mobile Mini is the detail the team goes to when it comes to safety – cameras around the wagons and bottom lifting in particular.

“Especially when working in compact sites like this with complex lifting, small safety considerations can make a huge difference and I’m always confident in the knowledge that Mobile Mini has thought of everything.”

Paul Abbott, West Yorkshire branch manager for Mobile Mini, said: “Stacking units means we’re able to get a better footprint for a site, allowing for more and better facilities for the teams using them that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

“In this particular case, stacking has given the teams working overnight a separate space to meet, eat and change without getting in the way of the offices or potentially important meetings.

“When working on a lifting operation, there’s a lot that goes into it. First of all, ensuring that the units are compatible – testing them in our yard before taking them to the client. Then working with our clients to develop a sensible plan for their site, taking into consideration the ground, height and any obstacles such as cables.

“We’ve got the best equipment, fleet of vehicles and operatives who are all highly trained to carry out any job – simple or complex – so we are confident that we are able to meet the needs of any client across the country.”
