A-Plant invests in accommodation fleet

A-Plant Accommodation Mobile Welfare Unit

A-Plant’s accommodation division has splashed out almost £2 million to renew the company’s static and mobile welfare unit fleet.

84 Genquip Groundhog units have been bought, a number of which have already been utilised to provide welfare facilities for workers on ‘smart motorway’ schemes to upgrade the M3 and M5.

Ian Needham, A-Plant’s director of accommodation said, “Over the last two years, we have invested almost £5 million with Genquip Groundhog as part of a major investment and enhancement programme for our accommodation fleet.

“The latest order ranges from mobile units which are easily towed, secured, manoeuvred on-site and accommodate up to six people, to the very latest in environmentally friendly and sustainable temporary accommodation.

“There is tremendous demand for the new units and we are delighted that many of these have gone straight out on hire for contracts involving upgrades to the motorway network.”

A-Plant said the latest order includes a number of eco-friendly static welfare units which have the optimum ‘A’ Energy Performance Asset rating and features such as full flush toilets, double glazing, extra insulation and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
