Modular building provider Portakabin appointed accredited supplier by public sector procurement agen
Throughout a four-year contract, public sector organisations looking for portable office space, temporary classrooms and other accommodation solutions will be able to avoid the costly, compulsory competitive tender process and turn to Portakabin to fulfil all their requirements.
A spokesperson for OGCbuying.solutions said, ‘Portakabin has successfully been through our very stringent selection process, which includes pre-qualification questionnaires, a competitive tender stage and interviews, proving to us that the company offers the high standards of service, product quality and value we demand from our accredited suppliers.
‘In addition, we were very impressed by the full turn-key package that Portakabin offers. From processing planning applications to installing climate control systems, access ramps and furniture, the company is able to handle everything, offering complete peace of mind for our customers.’
Plus, each new Portakabin modular building comes with a pioneering 20-year structural warranty and 5-year product warranty package.
OGCbuying.solutions is an Executive Agency of the Office of Government Commerce in the Treasury. Its primary role is to help its public sector colleagues maximise procurement efficiency and value for money.
Its services are available to a large cross section of public sector customers including the Ministry of Defence, HM Prison Service, the Police, Emergency Services and any organisation that is more than 50 per cent publicly funded.
In addition, private-sector specifiers working for the public sector, such as architects, engineers and facilities management companies, can access its services.
Graham Burnett, Commercial Manager of Portakabin Hire Division, said, ‘OGC accreditation demonstrates the level of competitiveness and quality that our company represents. It’s an important badge of professionalism that will give public sector companies peace of mind that they are choosing a modular building solution that has been pre-assessed for quality and value.’
Furthermore, every Portakabin building procured comes with the company’s unique Customer Charter*, which states that if the company fails to complete projects on time and on budget, customers are entitled to a week’s free hire for every day Portakabin is late, or an additional six months’ product warranty on buildings that are purchased.
