Scarab Sweepers Case Study photo

Background to the temporary workshop project

Founded in 1979 Scarab is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of road sweepers. Their vast range of sweepers all share the same superior build, performance and low environmental impact and come with an after sales service that ensures this high performance level and superior quality is maintained.

Client’s requirement

When public services provider, Amey, won a contract for cleaning the city of Liverpool they ordered twenty vehicles from Scarab and also secured them as an ongoing service provider. Although Amey had a suitable site to house the vehicles there wasn’t a workshop available for Scarab’s ongoing maintenance and servicing work.

As a solution had to be found quickly Scarab and Amey between them began researching different prefabricated building solutions. After some good recommendations from a customer who had already used Aganto they got in touch and requested a site visit.

Temporary workshop solution

Aganto proposed and went on to install a 12m wide by 15m long temporary workshop with a 5m working height to the eaves. The building had non-insulated steel clad walls and an insulated roof to help prevent any condensation build up. For vehicle and personnel access two roller shutter and two pedestrian doors were installed.

It took less than a week to install the structure, meeting the fast turnaround time that was critical to both companies.

Andy Farley, After Sales Director, managed the project with Amey and said this about working with Aganto and their buildings.

“Due to the speed of delivery and build, Aganto were chosen to provide the portable building on site at Liverpool. Currently we have three staff working from the building carrying out servicing and repairs on the sweepers.

“The Aganto portable building was an excellent solution for us and our client, Amey. It provided the right amount of workshop space we needed, in the right place and in the short lead time that was essential to the requirements of the new contract with Liverpool City Council.”
