Cube Creates New Range of Bespoke Gatehouses

Cube Modular’s bespoke gatehouses are creating a striking first impression for visitors.

The visitor centre pictured is one of a series of gatehouses, control centres and security cabins on Cube’s order books currently.

The 6m fully insulated modular cabin was designed to integrate with the style of the existing buildings and features performance panel cladding with extended side wall detail and an overhanging GRP roof. The attractive frontage consists of floor to ceiling aluminium framed glazing and fully glazed door.

The interior has an equally smart high quality specification finish with lots of glazing for good vision and lots of natural light.

Cube Modular’s MD Brandon Weston is enthusiastic about the new range: “A gatehouse is the first impression a visitor has of a company and we love working with clients to create something special. The roof overhang, large areas of glazing and dark cladding all contribute to an overall effect that is truly stunning.”

Other gatehouses recently completed or in the pipeline for Cube include a composite wood clad security hut for a London football club, a gatehouse for an international food and drinks group in Wales and another for a leading global e-commerce firm.

Cube Launches Sustainable Event Hotel at Event Buyers Live

We’re delighted to have launched our sustainable event hotel at the Event Buyers Live conference in Nottingham recently, which was received with rave reviews!  

Our new state-of-the-art and sustainable event hotel, available for 2022 events and festivals, is constructed using Cube’s market-leading and award-winning Continest foldable containers, buildings which can be rapidly deployed to create multi-room accommodation structures.

Showcasing our innovative design at the conference with a two ensuite bedroom structure, the insulated buildings can be jointed and stacked to form a two-storey 20-bedroom hotel, with air conditioning available where required. Full service and furnishing contracts are also available. Our eco-friendly modular hotel is suitable for any large scale event, making it ideal for organisers looking for on-site staff accommodation to reduce their travel and transport costs.

The Event Buyers Live conference, where prospective clients pre-book meetings with suppliers whose products they are interested in, saw a fully booked Cube team showcase its modular portable hotel to many curious parties. In fact, due to demand, the team was unable to fit everyone into the conference timeframe, meaning more showings and demonstrations have been booked in the weeks ahead.  

Festival and event organisers who did manage to book an appointment to see the team were particularly interested in discussing their sustainability goals for 2022 and finding out how Cube can help to reduce their travel and transport emissions through the use of its foldable containers. Continest’s innovative foldable container technology means just two trucks can deliver an entire 20-bedroom ensuite pop-up hotel to any location, leading to an 80% saving in carbon fuel emissions compared to fixed framed portable buildings.  In addition, an entire event infrastructure consisting of ticket offices, security units, admin offices, merchandise units, bar and catering units as well as accreditations offices, can also be delivered on just two trucks*. 

Cube Modular’s charity partner, ecolibrium, also hosted a panel of experts discussing the challenges and looking at strategies for reducing travel carbon emissions at events, focusing on innovation in the supply chain and how stakeholders across the sector can collaborate to create positive change. Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s Managing Director, was part of this thought-provoking panel, alongside Naomi Lawson (project manager, ecolibrium) and other eminent players in the environmental and events industries. 

Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD, said: “We had a very successful time at Event Buyers Live and received some fantastic feedback on the launch of our new event hotel, which will be available for 2022. This event has been a fantastic networking opportunity for developing both new and existing relationships and we very much look forward to working with them all in what is sure to be an exciting year for the event and festival industry.”

Cube Modular to launch first Sustainable Event Hotel at Event Buyers Live

We’re delighted to be launching our new sustainable event hotel at the Event Buyers Live conference (EBL), taking place 29th November – 1st December at the De Verre Orchard Hotel, Nottingham.

Branded as ‘The place to do business’, Event Buyers Live offers one-to-one meetings between event organisers and suppliers, and prides itself on a packed educational programme. This year the event will see ecolibrium, Cube Modular’s charity partner, host a panel of experts with a view to tackle the environmental impacts of travel and transport at live events. Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD, will be part of this panel, alongside Naomi Lawson (project manager, ecolibrium) and other eminent players in the environmental and events industries. The panel will discuss the challenges and look at strategies for reducing travel carbon emissions at events, with a focus on innovation in the supply chain and how stakeholders across the sector can collaborate to create positive change.

Cube’s new and innovative sustainable event hotel, available for 2022 events and festivals, will be made using Cube’s market-leading and award-winning Continest foldable containers which can be rapidly deployed to create multi-room staff accommodation complete with en-suite facilities. The insulated buildings can be stacked to form a two-storey hotel, with air conditioning installed where required. A full service and furnishing contract is also offered. Suitable for any large scale event, the hotel is ideal for organisers looking for on-site staff accommodation to reduce travel and transport costs.

Due to Continest’s innovative folding technology, two trucks and a couple of days are all that is needed to transport and build a 20-bedroom pop-up hotel, leading to an 80% saving in carbon fuel emissions upon transport compared to fixed framed portable buildings.

Brandon Weston, Cube Modular MD, said “We are very excited to be showcasing our new sustainable event hotel at the Event Buyers Live this year. It is great to be able to offer this ground-breaking sustainable staff accommodation for the 2022 festival and event season”.

Through its modular, multifunctional portable buildings, which include Continest containers, Cube offers the most mobile and sustainable temporary portable building solution in the modular accommodation industry.

Cube Expands Its Shop Structures At Lord’s Cricket Ground

Cube Expands Its Shop Structures At Lord’s Cricket Ground

Cube has recently installed a new retail structure at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The new shop, located next to Lord’s East Gate entrance, has replaced the venue’s existing store which was taken down during the stadium’s recent redevelopment.

This is the second ‘pop up’ store Cube has installed at Lord’s, following an 11x6m store installation in 2019 which is situated at Grace Gate.

The latest store, commissioned by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the owners of Lord’s, provides a fully fitted out store, smaller in size than the previous retail structure, but with the aim to maximise space and give the perception of a larger store. The Cube team installed the store within 5 days.

Created and designed by Cube’s in-house tech team, the 15x7m store includes a metal faced sandwich panel structure, with automatic doors on entrance and exit. A 6m glazed frontage with large shopfront window display and external large format stretch fabric branding completes its exterior.

Internally, the store has been fitted out with a bespoke made mesh & fabric retail display wall, printed to MCC’s new brand colourways for Lord’s to brighten up the corners of the shop; a bespoke till area, including ample cupboard storage; large floor to ceiling picture windows, to break up the rows of merchandise and bring additional light into the shop; as well as full internal electrics, data and air conditioning.

The Cube team, an integrated event services, modular building and sports retail company, offers event and venue infrastructure solutions to many world-renowned venues and events, including F1, UEFA, EURO2020, Sail GP, Formula E World Championship, and the R&A.
