We’ve installed our welfare units in some pretty unusual places over the years, but never under one of the most famous fairground rides in the world – the amazing (and some would say scary) Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
The far-from typical project is to support Truman Design and Build’s enabling works for the 120-bedroom Boulevard Hotel on Blackpool’s iconic promenade. The new-build hotel will feature a mix of family rooms, executive suites, conference facilities and a 150-cover restaurant.
We were delighted to be involved in the project, supplying two units to provide office and welfare accommodation for the site team.
We enlisted an 80T Hiab crane to position the modules – and for once, this usually impressive machine was dwarfed by the soaring steelwork of The Big One overhead.
The installation went ahead smoothly, and the team is able to enjoy some super seaside accommodation, right at the heart of Blackpool.
