The R&A boosts sustainability credentials with Cube’s temporary infrastructure
Cube has had another busy summer installing pop up temporary buildings for championship tournaments at golf clubs around the UK for The R&A, a leading body within the world of golf whose aim is to engage in and support activities for the benefit of the sport. Altogether Cube installation teams delivered 92 units to 12 venues, including 20 for the 49th edition of the prestigious Walker Cup at St Andrews.
Cube’s portable cabins were deployed as temporary infrastructure to support the popular championship matches. The 6m and 3m units served a multitude of purposes, including:
- box offices
- scoring booths
- media offices
- medical and first aid bays
- recording and digital content units
- meeting rooms
- stores, shops and retail units
- personal offices for chief referees, Chairman of Championship and tournament directors.
The flexibility of Cube’s portable build system means that where required, units can be joined together to create larger open plan offices and meeting rooms as well as multi-storey complexes.
Harry Lonsdale, Project Manager for the event, said: “We were able to offer a highly efficient, sustainable delivery service since most venues required between 5 and ten units, which could all be delivered on one truck.
“Folding and stacking our unique units enables clients to achieve up to 80% reduction in carbon emissions associated with transport, boosting their sustainability credentials.”
Part of the Cube International group, Cube Modular designs and manufactures modular portable buildings and containers of exceptional design, quality and functionality for sports events, venues, stadia and businesses.
