Unipart Group is a multinational logistics, supply chain, manufacturing and consultancy company headquartered in Cowley, Oxfordshire. Unipart Logistics had a requirement to house a temporary waste management process at their National Distribution and Repair centre in Nuneaton, so were looking for a building solution that could be swiftly installed.

Senior Facilities Manager at Unipart Logistics, John Jobson has worked with Aganto for a number of building projects over the years, so when the need arose for a budget cost, John knew to get in touch with Sales Manager Janos Szabo.

Janos recommended an insulated building with dimensions of 15 x 40 x 4.2 metres at the eave. This was specified to include two electric roller shutter doors – one at each end, to allow for easy movement of material through the waste process. The modular construction of Aganto temporary buildings means they can be dismantled and resold at the end of their useful lifecycle or moved to an alternate location. In addition to their suitability for waste management processing, the aluminium structures themselves are recyclable. After comparing both hire and purchase costings, the client opted to purchase. Once planning was approved, pallets, fencing and compactors were moved to create space for the building, and installation work could begin. Initially, the base plate was fixed to the existing concrete hardstanding, then the frame profiles could be erected. The build schedule concluded with installation of the pedestrian access doors, guttering and sealing.

The full installation was completed ahead of time, with a five-man site team in just one week. In line with standard procedure, and as the build process neared completion, Aganto’s in-house Site Manager Wayne Bradshaw inspected the structure alongside the client. This is done to ensure any additional snagging works are quickly identified so they can be immediately addressed. There weren’t any complications with this project though, and the Operations department were sent some great feedback from John, who commented,

“Can I pass on my thanks to all concerned for the installation at our Nuneaton site build completed today. Wayne and his team have done a brilliant job ahead of time, to a high standard of workmanship, and with no issues or causes of concern to us for the duration of the works.”

Aganto temporary buildings and canopies are an ideal option for manufacturers managing their waste on-site, or for recycling and environmental companies. Due to their lightweight, yet robust modular design they are very quick to install to enable clients to make best use of their existing space on site. Their flexibility is also a significant benefit, as they can be relocated or extended as needed. With eave heights up to 6 metres, machinery such as auto-balers and conveyors can be accomodated.
