Cube Provides First CT Scan Modular Unit for Hallmarq at Valley Equine Hospital

We’re thrilled to be in collaboration with Hallmarq to deliver an all-time first state-of-the-art modular building, with a standing leg CT scanner for horses, to Valley Equine Hospital in Berkshire.

With a substantial caseload of thoroughbred horses, Valley Equine Hospital is now poised to revolutionise the early identification of distal limb pathology through the utilisation of this advanced diagnostic tool within a portable building. 

The introduction of a standing CT scanner within a portable structure offers numerous advantages over previous methods. CT scanning provides a wealth of information that surpasses the capabilities of radiography. It also reduces radiation exposure to staff. Furthermore, scanning is considerably quicker, enabling prompt diagnosis and treatment planning. 

With easy installation, the Cube x Hallmarq modular diagnostic room can be set up in any location and, once installed, is ready for immediate use. The standing equine leg CT offers safe scanning, with an easy entry and exit system, without the need for general anaesthesia. Full ongoing support is also provided from the team at Hallmarq to ensure maximum use of the facility, including staff training. 

A Safer Alternative

Valley Equine Hospital, with a substantial caseload of thoroughbred horses, chose the Hallmarq standing CT scanner, due to its ability to scan using just standing sedation. This ensures a safer and more efficient experience for the horses when compared to general anaesthesia. By working closely with Hallmarq’s training team, the veterinary professionals at Valley Equine hospital are actively optimising sedation techniques and patient positioning to achieve the best possible results. 

Tom McParland, Valley Equine Hospital’s surgeon, expressed his enthusiasm for the new device, stating: “The installation of the Hallmarq standing CT scanner is a fantastic addition to our hospital. We are confident that this diagnostic modality will significantly enhance our ability to identify not just thoroughbred fetlock pathology earlier but improve our diagnostic abilities of the distal limb for all our equine patients, racing, and leisure alike.” 

The portable Hallmarq standing CT scanner unit is set to revolutionise the equine world with many more units set to be installed at veterinary hospitals across the globe.

Earth Day 2023: ‘Invest In Our Planet’

On April 22nd, stakeholders of all backgrounds come together to advance sustainability and climate action in commemoration of Earth Day. First held in 1970, the annual event now includes a wide range of events and initiatives coordinated globally. This year, the Earth Day movement is rallying behind the theme ‘Invest In Our Planet’, which highlights the importance of dedicating our time, resources, and energy to solving climate change and other environmental issues, with a view that investing in our planet is necessary to protect it and the best way to pave a path towards a prosperous future.

Cube is equally committed to protecting the environment, as well as the health and safety of our employees and the global communities in which we operate. Our business takes the necessary measures to carry out its statutory, moral, and social duties to the highest standards, compliant with the current industry best practise.

Cube is constantly improving the environmental impact of its operations and follow these key principles:

  • Actively measuring and monitoring environmental impacts
  • Reducing waste, maximising the reuse, and recycling of materials and managing disposal responsibly
  • Ensuring our use of natural resources (energy, water, products we buy) is sustainable
  • Protecting the environment by seeking to avoid and reduce the pollution of air, water and land that may result as a consequence of our business operations
  • Ensuring that our activities are sensitive to the local community and that we leave areas exactly as they were found or better
  • Developing awareness of environmental context and initiatives to encourage proactive stakeholder engagement
  • Providing suitable environmental training for our staff and continuously promoting sustainability and environmental awareness.

Continest

Cube’s exclusive Continest build system uses foldable technology to reduce transport and logistical costs:

  • Ten buildings can be transported, folded and stacked on a single truck
  • Traditional fixed framed buildings would require five times the number of lorries
  • Continest foldable portable buildings achieve an 80% reduction in transport carbon footprint by reducing the number of trucks required, thereby also reducing our Scope 1 emissions
  • Reduced diesel exhaust fumes reduce carbon, C02, emissions and particulate soot –improving health and wellbeing in the event space and locations the units are installed.

Given the nature of Cube Modular’s business and our ISO20121 Sustainable Event Management Certification, we include:

  • Carbon emission reports for all our event clients and for internal reporting
  • These reports detail the quantity of CO2 emissions produced in transport, and the amount saved compared to transporting fixed framed cabins.

Our business measures its environmental health, safety and sustainability performance against established standards and this performance is reviewed by the Board of Directors and Safety & Sustainability team on a regular basis.

By making sustainability an integral part of our strategy and operations, we aim to achieve long-term returns and generate a positive impact for society and the environment, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and the Paris Agreement. We make sustainability an intrinsic part of all our global business relationships and work closely with our suppliers and business partners to achieve long lasting impacts across our entire value chain.

Cube’s New Service Supports Events to Reduce Travel Impacts

Cube has enhanced its service to the company’s event and festival partners by providing, at quotation stage, a summary of the carbon emissions that each project will incur through transportation. A new service aimed to aid discussion over maximising the efficiency of deliveries to ensure that clients can take advantage of carbon emission savings achieved through use of Cube’s sustainable infrastructure solutions.  

Ensuring our range of Cube’s Continest buildings, the most ecofriendly solution in the modular building industry, is even more flexible for use as retail, merchandising and box office units as well as security cabins, dressing rooms and admin offices, Cube’s able to provide an entire event infrastructure to venues, taking full advantage of transport, storage and logistics efficiencies.  

In addition, Cube provides each of its event and festival clients with a Travel Carbon Emissions Report using our partner, ecolibrium’s, carbon calculator tool. Headline figures show carbon emissions savings of 9,588kg for Boardmasters, 9,975kg for Black Deer, 16,788kg for Tartan Heart, and 11,000kg for On The Beach festivals. For those four festivals alone, 112 trucks were taken off the road because of using Cube’s Continest buildings.

In total over 1,000 units have been delivered to more than 40 festivals, music concerts and sporting events, including Chelsea Flower Show, Glastonbury, Formula E London and Monaco E-Prix and the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games. Total carbon savings from delivering our collapsible cabins to 15 UK festivals alone have topped 60,000Kg in the summer of 2022. 

CASE STUDY – Tartan Heart Festival, Inverness 

 

For the Tartan Heart Festival, Cube used just eight lorries to transport 24, 6m units and12, 3m units in and out of the festival instead of thirty lorries which would have been required to transport the equivalent number of units of traditional fixed framed cabins. The carbon emissions and savings achieved can be summarised as follows: – 

Transportation Carbon Emissions 

No. of trucks used Total mileage Carbon emissions (kg) based on DEFRA carbon conversion figures

Rugby League World Cup (RLWC2021) has today launched its new campaign ‘This is Real Impact’ officially marking 200 days until the biggest and best RLWC2021 arrives in England later this year. The event, which will officially open on 15 October, is set to make a huge impact across the nation, welcoming the world’s best teams and galvanising civic pride in England’s towns and cities.

The RLWC2021 is the pinnacle major event of rugby league, globally contested every four years. This year’s event will be a breakthrough moment in the tournament’s history with the men’s, women’s and wheelchair competitions being staged together for the first time.

Working in collaboration with the RLWC2021 team, the entire Cube International group, including Cube Partnership, Cube Management and Cube Modular will be working collaboratively to install, operate and manage bespoke official merchandise stores at each of the 61 matches across the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments.

The three tournaments will take place across 21 venues throughout England. Both the women’s and wheelchair competitions will be contested by two groups of four teams, whilst the men’s tournament will see 16 teams compete across four groups.

Cube Partnership, RLWC2021’s Official Retail Partner has designed and operates the official RLWC2021 online store, which was launched last year. The official online store has proven to be a world class ecommerce service, offering fans a comprehensive range of exciting merchandise for the biggest and best RLWC2021 in history. Cube will also manage the retail operation at all matches and venues.

Retail stores will be provided by Cube Modular, the portable building division of the Cube group, including Continest containers, the world’s most sustainable, foldable container, a product that offers an impressive 80% CO2 emissions reduction against standard container use. The Continest stores will be installed at the venues by the Cube Management team, a well-established event operations and services business, which also works in a wide range of other sports including F1, NFL, UEFA, cricket and golf.

The Women’s Sports Alliance, a global story telling platform, also part of the Cube International group, will be working closely with RLWC2021 to bring to light some of the most inspirational female player journeys to the World Cup. With behind the scenes access, courtesy of RLWC2021, to some of the most exciting players and coaches, the WSA will build hype not only around the teams, but the tournament as a whole, including championing the inclusivity element of the tournament through film, photography and journalistic means.

Cube’s RLWC2021 Business Director, Andy Smith, said: “The entire Cube team is delighted to be working with RLWC2021 and we are looking forward to bringing our exciting products and stories, and a great retail and fan experience for spectators and fans attending and watching the RLWC2021.

England Golf Championships to Boost Eco-Credentials with Cube’s Continest Sustainable Buildings

Cube Modular has won a contract to supply its award-winning Continest foldable container buildings to four England Golf championships this season. A total of 18 units will be supplied to championships in England and Scotland between May and August including the European Amateur Team Championship at Royal St George’s Golf Club.

“We’re really looking forward to working with England Golf to minimise the carbon footprint of this season’s events with our unique foldable portable cabins”, said Brandon Weston, MD of Cube Modular. “Our award-winning units provide high quality, versatile buildings that can be folded down and stacked, reducing transport C02 emissions and slashing haulage costs.”

James Crampton, England Golf’s director of championships, commented: “In everything we do as a championships team, the environmental impact of our work is now carefully considered. By choosing Cube Modular for office solutions at several of our key, large-scale events we are going that one step further to make sure that our carbon footprint is as small as possible.”

England Golf’s national amateur squads compete on a world stage and previous alumni include modern-day professionals Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Bronte Law and Georgia Hall. The four events Cube will be supplying units to are: the Brabazon Trophy (Saunton Golf Club), European Men’s Team Championships (Royal St George’s Golf Club), English Amateur Championships (men and women at Lindrick and Worksop Golf Clubs) and the English Women’s Stroke Play (Beau Desert Golf Club).

Cube’s Continest CN10 units will provide offices for organisers and staff at each of these championship events. These unique container buildings with patented hinge mechanism are folded flat for storage and transport and then erected in minutes on-site to provide a high quality, robust and versatile temporary infrastructure. They can also be jointed together to create larger open-plan spaces or multi storey buildings.

England Golf is the governing body for the club and amateur game in England and administers the game on behalf of around 1,800 affiliated golf clubs and 647,000 golf club members. The championships team stages over 50 tournaments each season for elite amateur and handicap club golfers.
