Case Study: Culford School

Top marks for additional accommodation and secure storage

Schools, Colleges & Daycare

Extra office accomodation and more secure site storage was urgently needed by Culford School, based in Suffolk and Portable Space was able to provide exactly what was required.

Culford, an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls, had recently undergone a re-organisation of its maintenance yard, resulting in a shortage of dry, lockable storage for sports equipment.

The school ordered two storage containers for the sports equipment, as well as a 24ft jackleg cabin for use as additional office space. Jackleg cabins have adjustable legs which makes them ideal for situations where the ground may be uneven.

Jason Goodall, Commercial Manager at Culford School said: “Portable Space is a local company to us and were able to help with our need for additional accommodation and storage.

“Following a site survey, which confirmed restricted access for delivery, our two storage units were delivered and lifted over the side of a building into place using one of Portable Space’s specialist crane lorries. As we are a listed site, we then clad the units with timber so they blend with the background. We later took delivery of a further unit which we use for office space.

“Both products and customer service have been excellent and we are very happy with the solution provided by the company.”
