Aberdeen modular cabin firm supplies accommodation for Forth Crossing project

An Aberdeen modular cabin firm is supplying accommodation for the multi-million pound Forth Replacement Crossing construction project.

Greenwell Equipment, which is headquartered in Aberdeen, has this month supplied further modular accommodation, to add to the existing offices, canteens, laboratories, changing facilities, toilets and showers the firm has already provided to the project.

The new Forth Crossing, to be named the Queensferry Crossing, is due to open to traffic by the end of 2016. The impressive new construction is central to a major upgrade to the important cross-Forth transport corridor in the east of Scotland. The 1.7 miles (2.7km) structure will be the longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world.

Greenwell, which supplies modular buildings, office cabins, shipping containers, pallet racking, shelving and office furniture to a range of different industries, has recently supplied further office and welfare units, bringing the total of fully fitted-out cabins over the past 18 months to over 200 based shore-side, positioned on the four construction barges located on the Forth Estuary and on the deck level.

Family-run business Greenwell, which has 15 employees, is the North of Scotland official trading partner for Containex modular buildings. Greenwell holds a large stock at its depots across Aberdeen and Angus, enabling the firm to respond quickly to customers’ demands.

Scott Brown, sales manager for Greenwell said: “The latest phase meets the increasing need for accommodation as the project progresses to its next stage. The modular cabins are of a very high specification, which can be built up to three storeys high and assembled quickly according to individual specific requirements.

“Over the last 18 months, Greenwell has supplied welfare units, office accommodation, canteens and changing facilities for the Forth Crossing construction barges, onshore services and on the top of the towers.

“This ongoing prestigious contract is testament to Greenwell’s excellent reputation for supplying large quantities of high specification cabins at short notice, and on time.”
