Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance has invested in a brand new Clearview Modular Building for its HQ at RAF Waddington – designed, supplied and installed by Portable Building Sales.
The new, bespoke modular building will act as a central base for the helicopter emergency medical team, in support of the work the charity does saving lives across the counties. It replaces a small, old building, providing additional space and improved facilities to help the air ambulance team deliver its vital service.
The new 13 section Clearview Modular Building includes a wide range of facilities, including an operations room, board room, training room, mess room, reception room, toilets, showers, study room, drying room and sluice room.
Roger Linell, Air Operations Manager, comments:
“The new building is a huge improvement – providing us with all the space and facilities our team needs to effectively run the service. We chose the Clearview Modular building because it offered the best all round package in terms of the aesthetics, performance and cost.
“The work was beyond our expectations in terms of cost savings, and the speed with which the project was finished was astonishing!”
The new HQ exterior was designed to fit in with the existing air force station buildings, with a dark green cladding, in addition to a brighter yellow roof to match the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance branding. It features large, full length windows, designed to maximise natural light inside.
The building was delivered and installed in a single day – with the Portable Building Sales team spending a further 3 weeks to complete the project, including the creation of a free decking area that can be accessed from the rest room.
Mike Ward, Managing Director of Portable Building Sales, said:
“We felt honoured to be involved in this project – the charity does so much great work across the region, and we were committed to delivering an HQ they would be proud of. This building will provide decades of faithful service, and we hope it makes a real difference.
“The Clearview Modular Building is really versatile – and it’s proved really popular with customers across a huge range of industries, thanks to its unique appearance, quick installation times and excellent value for money. They can be installed virtually anywhere, and the exterior finish can be customised to suit a full range of environments.”
