Modular and offsite buildings solutions brand Algeco is opening a new sustainable site in Wigan to serve the North-West region.
The site, officially opening on 20 April, has photo-voltaic panels to help power its workshops and eight EV chargers to provide recharge points for customers, visitors and colleagues. Furthermore, all of the mechanical handling equipment on site is electric-powered to minimise emissions.
Hiring buildings also contributes to the circular economy by re-using modules when they are no longer required by the first customer. The Algeco Wigan site refurbishes and re-uses portable and modular buildings for use as temporary offices, welfare facilities, toilets, anti-vandal units, secure storage units, site accommodation and gatehouses, amongst many others.
Algeco has also partnered with Nature Positive to ensure biodiversity is addressed on the four-acre site, and has planted low-maintenance trees, plants and shrubs.
Richard Dey, area director, North at Algeco, said: “We’re pleased to announce our new site in Wigan as we look to strengthen our brand presence across the country. It offers customers from a wide range of sectors easy access to the huge range of Algeco temporary building solutions for hire.”
He continued: “By adding this new site to our network, we have been able to raise the bar on our sustainability, which now provides a blueprint for future Algeco sites.”
The Algeco Wigan site is located on Makerfield Way, Ince-in-Makerfield, Wigan WN2 2PP and the business will be hosting a discovery day on 20 April where key supply chain partners will be attending to offer free advice on specialist services.
