Online PR News – 08-April-2013 – UK – Site accommodation specialist Konstructa Hire Ltd has launched the Konstructa Fire-Safe building, the only premium quality, fire-rated, energy-saving offering on the market to be supported by a unique on time delivery promise.

Aimed at housebuilders and other construction companies, as well as contractors in civil engineering, transport, education and utilities, the Konstructa Fire-Safe building has been developed to meet the demand for fire-rated buildings that are also energy-efficient, low maintenance and versatile in application. The fully compliant, fire-rated structure delivers half-hour resistance in multi-storey mode and is independently tested and certified by Warringtonfire.1 Providing the highest levels of security and fire containment, Konstructa Hire also offers a unique on time delivery promise that compensates with a week’s free hire in the unlikely event that the company fails to meet the agreed contract start date.

In addition to proven anti-vandal and theft benefits, the building’s energy-efficient design can save contractors up to £256 per year on running costs and bring as much as 28 per cent reduction in energy usage and carbon emissions. Motion sensor lighting, time-regulated heating, extensive CFC-free insulation and double glazing are complemented by power ethernet data ready sockets that can facilitate a secure high speed network.

The Konstructa Fire-Safe range is available in a wide range of options from site offices, canteens and toilet facilities to changing and drying rooms. Whatever their internal layout, the robust steel-framed buildings are of standard design to ensure visual consistency on site and can be double or triple stacked - or linked - to meet individual requirements. As standard, all buildings have provision for low-level lifting which supports The Work at Height Regulations 2005.

David Griffiths, Director and General Manager of Konstructa Hire, explained: “Konstructa Hire Ltd was established with the over-riding objective of providing high-quality site accommodation for the construction industry. The company has since gone from strength to strength despite the challenging economic climate and our buildings now appear throughout the UK on a broad range of sites including retail construction, water and power generation and local government projects.
“The Konstructa Fire-Safe building is our newest product and possibly the most impressive demonstration to date of our advanced manufacturing and engineering facilities. We are confident that this design will be as successful as its predecessors and will rapidly become established as the default market leader in premium quality, fire-rated, energy-efficient site accommodation.

“As the UK’s fastest growing supplier of high-quality site accommodation, Konstructa Hire is committed to exceptional service and our on time delivery promise demonstrates that we ‘put our money where our mouth is’. As part of the Portakabin Group, we have invested significant resources and expertise into the development of class-leading accommodation solutions that not only meet current site requirements but also anticipate and embrace future trends in private and public sector construction.”

The Konstructa Fire-Safe building fully complies with the Joint Code of Practice on the Protection from Fire of Construction Sites and Buildings Undergoing Renovation which gives further reassurance of the tried and tested fire safety performance. Additionally, every Konstructa Hire building achieves ISO 14001 accreditation for control of environmental impact - and can help contractors to achieve certification under the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
