  • Client - Biffa Waste Services Ltd.

Biffa Waste Services Ltd is the leading nationwide integrated waste management business providing collection, treatment, recycling and technologically-driven energy generation services. The St Helens branch of Biffa required a 52 week hire building to be used as Office Accommodation and Site Welfare. Module-AR Limited were granted the contract and 6 No. AR3000 units were designed, manufactured and installed to complete the single storey building.

Externally the Biffa St Helens structure features GRP (glass reinforced plastic) external walls, steel columns & external doors, Plastisol (plastic coated steel) fascia and canopy and UPVC lockable windows with restrictors.

Inside the Office and Welfare Accommodation are various sized Offices, a Meeting room, Canteen, Delivery Office, a Locker/Changing room with showers, WC's and a main Corridor linking each room. The floor was constructed in a combination of Polysafe standard vinyl & Primavera Xtra carpet tiles for a robust, hard-wearing and maintenance-free solution.

Despite this being a temporary solution, Module-AR Limited installed additional extras such as standalone fire alarm and intruder alarm systems, manually operated roller shutters to doors and windows, vertical cream blinds, fluorescent lighting, Heat & Cool air conditioning and a multi-point water heater.

Only 1 day was needed to install the modules with a total project completed time of 7 weeks. This is up to 50% faster than if the project was completed traditionally.
