Cube Wins Hire Industry Product of the Year at Hire Awards of Excellence 2022

Cube Modular is delighted to announce it has won Hire Industry Product of the Year for its flagship modular portable buildings. The award was presented at Hire Association Europe’s Hire Awards of Excellence Dinner on Saturday night at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s prestigious Park Lane.

Cube’s winning product impressed the judges with its ‘innovative solution, reduction in transportation costs and the environmental impact’.   

Cube has the exclusive distributor rights for Continest unique foldable cabins for the UK and Ireland as well major international sporting events globally. Continest cabins are the most sustainable temporary portable accommodation solution available to the sports, events and hire industries worldwide.

Folded flat and stacked for transport and erected on site in just a few minutes, these innovative units provide robust and flexible temporary infrastructure for any venue, enabling events to reduce their CO2 and GHG emissions by up to 80%, compared to using traditional fixed framed cabins.

“This is another feather in our cap and it’s great to see the sustainability and innovation of the brilliant Continest portable building system consistently recognised”, said Brandon Weston, MD of Cube Modular Ltd. “Cube’s innovative Continest CN20 and CN10 products were developed to enable the hire industry to reduce the carbon footprint associated with the transportation and storage of temporary portable buildings by up to 80%.

Reducing carbon footprint is a key priority for festivals, sporting and other major events, so the demand for more sustainable products from suppliers is on the increase. Travel and transport specifically has consistently been found to make up at least 80% of a typical event’s carbon footprint, with transportation of building infrastructure contributing significantly due to the size of the structures.

Collapsing and stacking the units means that a single truck can transport 10 CN20 units or 20 CN10 units as opposed to the five trucks required to transport the same number of traditional standard cabins. The patented hinge is very easy to operate using just a special hand tool but provides an extremely safe building of superior quality. These unique temporary buildings can be folded down or put up in 5-10 minutes by a single operator with a forklift truck.

The Hire Industry Product of the Year award is sponsored by The Hire Exchange who presented the trophy to Charles Littlefair, Commercial Manager at Cube.

An impressive solution. The entry demonstrates a credible cost saving and greener result which will reduce Co2 emissions and allow venues to be up and running much quicker, bringing even more agility to fast moving and demanding markets.

Formula E and Cube Expand Partnership at Monaco E-Prix

The Cube International group has continued its great partnership with Formula E, following Cube Management’s appointment to install 65 modular buildings at the Monaco E-Prix. Part of the ABB Formula E World Championships, the units will be installed at one of the most iconic venues in global motor sport.

Cube’s projects team prepared the units in Cube International’s new warehouse facility in Worcester, in readiness for the complex install programme which includes a 15 bay jointed, two storey configuration of cabins within the world famous Monaco Marina.

We are delighted to have expanded our relationship with Formula E following a successful initial project at the London race at the ExCeL centre last July. The whole team is working incredibly hard to ensure our work in Monaco is befitting such an historic venue in motor sport.”
Jon Graham, MD Cube Management

The 65 sustainable foldable cabins to be used at the event were collected before the Easter break and transported to Monaco on just eight articulated lorries. The efficient nature of transporting Cube’s award-winning Continest foldable buildings selected for this project, aligns with Formula E’s core principles which focus on sustainable practices and reducing carbon foot print.

The Cube crew will be on site for the duration of the build prior to the first race of the weekend which will be held on Saturday 30th April 2022.

Jon Graham, Cube Management’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to have expanded our relationship with Formula E, following a most successful initial partnership project at the London race last July. Last year’s build, at ExCeL London, was a complex one, with over 140 cabins installed including a double-stacked race control built in the main hall.

“Our project team and installation crew were exceptional on that project and when the opportunity arose to work with Formula E again, this time in Monaco, it was important that we, once again, were able to offer an unsurpassed service whilst continuing to develop our portfolio. The whole team is working incredibly hard to ensure our work in Monaco is befitting such an historic venue in motor sport.”

The installation at Monaco commenced just over a week before the first race.

New Visitor Information Pod Arrives On Cheltenham High Street

Cube Modular has installed a visitor information pod featuring digital screens in Cheltenham Town Centre high street this week. A bespoke project commissioned by Marketing Cheltenham, the stunning modular building was designed and built in our new premises at Broomhall, Worcester.

New visitor information pod arrives on Cheltenham High Street

The ‘Information Exchange’ will pilot a new approach to visitor information for the next three months

Visitors to Cheltenham’s town centre will notice a new addition to the High Street from this week as Cheltenham Borough Council installs a new information pod as part of a three month trial to test a new approach to visitor information in the town. The pod, which will be known as the Information Exchange (or iX for short) is the latest initiative to help support the town’s economic recovery and encourage both locals and visitors to discover more of what Cheltenham has to offer.

The iX will feature large outwardly-facing digital screens containing information on what’s on in the town that week, with QR codes to discover more – as well as large maps of Cheltenham that it is hoped will encourage people to explore more of the town. When in full use, the public will be able to go inside the pod and browse an extensive range of leaflets and information on the town and surrounding area.

The concept behind the iX is that local organisations, charities and projects will be given the opportunity to operate from the space on a pop-up basis, providing them with a valuable opportunity to engage with the public in a high-footfall area of the town, whilst maximising the iX’s accessibility to visitors.

cheltenham''s new information exchange building

David Jackson, Manager of Marketing Cheltenham at Cheltenham Borough Council said: “In a normal year, Cheltenham welcomes well in excess of 2 million visitors, so as the town’s visitor economy, hospitality and cultural sectors all get back into full swing again, we wanted to make sure visitors have every opportunity to explore all that the town has to offer. The Information Exchange is therefore a way of helping to inform visitors about events and things to see and do in the town that they may not have been aware of – but delivered in a way that is also linked to our visitcheltenham.com website in real-time.”

“We’re aware that the operating model is a different approach, which is all part of the pilot phase. We’re keen to hear from local organisations therefore so that we can ensure the iX is open and utilised as much as possible over the next three months. To have the opportunity of having a High Street location from which to promote your event, exhibition or latest initiative is something we hope local partners will find really attractive, so we’d encourage anyone that may be interested to get in touch.”

Prior to the start of the pandemic in 2020, Cheltenham’s Tourist Information Centre operated from the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum. However, the Wilson has been closed for the past two years as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and a subsequent major refurbishment which will see the creation of a new community exhibition gallery and exciting community arts café.

The Information Exchange itself has been constructed by Worcester-based modular building supplier Cube Modular Ltd.
Brandon Weston, Managing Director at Cube Modular said: “We are delighted to have been able to turn Cheltenham Borough Council’s design concept into reality. The information pod we have created is a visually attractive, innovative and functional pop-up solution.”
