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.

England Golf Championships to Boost Eco-Credentials with Cube’s Continest Sustainable Buildings

Cube Modular has won a contract to supply its award-winning Continest foldable container buildings to four England Golf championships this season. A total of 18 units will be supplied to championships in England and Scotland between May and August including the European Amateur Team Championship at Royal St George’s Golf Club.

“We’re really looking forward to working with England Golf to minimise the carbon footprint of this season’s events with our unique foldable portable cabins”, said Brandon Weston, MD of Cube Modular. “Our award-winning units provide high quality, versatile buildings that can be folded down and stacked, reducing transport C02 emissions and slashing haulage costs.”

James Crampton, England Golf’s director of championships, commented: “In everything we do as a championships team, the environmental impact of our work is now carefully considered. By choosing Cube Modular for office solutions at several of our key, large-scale events we are going that one step further to make sure that our carbon footprint is as small as possible.”

England Golf’s national amateur squads compete on a world stage and previous alumni include modern-day professionals Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Bronte Law and Georgia Hall. The four events Cube will be supplying units to are: the Brabazon Trophy (Saunton Golf Club), European Men’s Team Championships (Royal St George’s Golf Club), English Amateur Championships (men and women at Lindrick and Worksop Golf Clubs) and the English Women’s Stroke Play (Beau Desert Golf Club).

Cube’s Continest CN10 units will provide offices for organisers and staff at each of these championship events. These unique container buildings with patented hinge mechanism are folded flat for storage and transport and then erected in minutes on-site to provide a high quality, robust and versatile temporary infrastructure. They can also be jointed together to create larger open-plan spaces or multi storey buildings.

England Golf is the governing body for the club and amateur game in England and administers the game on behalf of around 1,800 affiliated golf clubs and 647,000 golf club members. The championships team stages over 50 tournaments each season for elite amateur and handicap club golfers.

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.

“We are now a one stop temporary accommodation provider for festival and event organisers due to our expanding range of unique building solutions”, said Brandon Weston, MD of Cube Modular. “We offer a complete sustainable event infrastructure, including pop up shops, bar and catering units and offices, as well as our new sleeping units, which are in great demand following a successful inaugural season last year.”

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.

Cube Modular is the UK and Ireland’s exclusive distributor of Continest and can be visited at Stand TS01 at The Event Production Show on 8-9 March, ExCel London Exhibition Centre.

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.

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. Thanks to the containers’ patented design, ten units can be transported on a single truck, offering huge savings on road haulage costs and similar reductions in carbon emissions.

Both Cube Modular and ecolibrium will be at the Event Buyers Live conference (EBL), 29th Nov – 1st Dec, where ecolibrium will host a panel on tackling the environmental impacts of travel and transport at live events, bringing together environmental consultant, Liz Warwick (Lansdowne Warwick), Graham McVoy (Site & Ops Manager, Boomtown Fair), Brandon Weston (MD, Cube Modular) and Naomi Lawson (Project Manager, ecolibrium) to discuss the challenge 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. At EBL Cube Modular are set to launch a new range of foldable buildings to further help events cut travel carbon emissions from the supply chain.

Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD, said:

“We are thrilled to be working in partnership with ecolibrium to tackle travel emissions. Our innovative foldable Continest buildings are designed to reduce carbon footprint through massive transport efficiencies. With the help of ecolibrium’s guidance, we look forward to achieving our sustainability goals in every aspect of our business, as well as supporting their existing climate investment projects.”

“We are delighted to have found a partner who shares our mission to help the live events industry address environmental impacts of travel. Cube Modular has a proven track record of solutions that allow events to cut carbon emissions from the supply chain through their innovative range of products and services.”
