The Customer's Requirement
To assist the field based engineering teams Wessex Water deploys mobile welfare and workspace facilities to wherever they are required. These facilities provide essential support to allow completion of work safely, efficiently, on time and using the latest available technology.
In many cases a vehicle is converted into either a welfare or a service/workspace unit. Qi has specialised in doing exactly this for well over 30 years.
However, Wessex Water came up with the innovative idea of using a trailer as a service/workspace unit instead of converting an additional vehicle. When completed, the trailer can be towed by an existing fleet vehicle. This saves the cost of buying another vehicle and all of the associated running costs, fuel, Tax, MOT, etc.
Qi's Design Solution
The Qi Design Team set to work with the brief of using an Ifor Williams 'box' trailer to create an ergonomic workspace.
The solution incorporated 32 & 16 Amp electrics, a range of individually design and manufactured storage units, shelves and drawers, a workbench with a fitted vice and all necessary Health & Safety features including a first aid kit and eyewash facility.
The Final Solution
Qi delivered a fully fitted mobile workspace design and manufactured to Wessex Water's specific requirements.
The trailer can be towed to the required location and provides the engineering team with all the facilities they need to complete their work. It can remain on site overnight if required as it is easily secured and can also provide additional storage space.
Qi also supplied and fitted all of the external graphics and livery in line with Wessex Water's branding guidelines.
We're happy to have been able to provide Wessex Water with a solution which matches their brief.
