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.

Cube Modular to Showcase New Sustainable Event Hotel at The Event Production Show 2022

Cube Modular, part of the Cube International group, will be demonstrating its new Event Hotel and Snoozy Glamping Pods at The Event Production Show 2022.

The Event Hotel is a brand new concept for the 2022 festival season and constructed using the company’s award-winning eco-friendly Continest foldable buildings and wetcell technology. It can accommodate up to 40 people in 20 bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom; a complete eco-friendly accommodation solution. The entire on-event hotel structure, consisting of twenty CN10 units and ten innovative wetcell dual ensuite bathroom units, is transported on just two trucks, leading to a massive reduction in carbon footprint.

Alongside its unique Event Hotel, Cube is now also offering Snoozy Glamping Pods for event rental. These stylish, lockable cube-shaped units offer secure, luxury sleeping accommodation for festival-goers. The aluminium and steel frame and aircell patented structure folds for storage and transport and features raised flooring, lighting and USB power.

The Event Hotel is the latest addition to Cube’s Continest range of foldable buildings, the most environmentally-friendly event solution which provides robust and scalable buildings for box office, dressing room, staff office, retail, catering and other temporary building needs.

Event organisers renting Continest units for their temporary accommodation building needs can make big savings on transport costs, reduce carbon emissions, and achieve their sustainability goals. Through innovative foldable technology, the units are designed to be folded down and stacked for transport and storage. Ten CN20s (10x20ft) or twenty CN10s (20x10ft) can be transported on a single truck, thus enabling a reduction of CO2 emissions by 80% compared to fixed portable building systems.
