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.

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. 

event hotel launch at event buyers live

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.”

*based on the use of 20 CN20 (6m) units or 40 CN10 (3m) units.
