We have been privileged to work with Thames Water on several occasions. Their first requirement was for modified, insulated containers that needed to be free of condensation.
The next contract was for bespoke built welfare units that were located at specific sites. These units were inhabited by the Thames Water workforce, to enable some team members to live onsite when needed. The containers were transformed by our skilled team, including the installation of electrics and plumbing. They were also fully furnished with beds, chairs and tables etc and equipped with sinks, toilets and other general household amenities.
Once the container conversions were complete, all units were transported by our team and offloaded to the relevant sites.
