Northampton, April 11, 2016: Structure specialist Neptunus has designed and built a temporary showroom for Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, the leading household appliances manufacturer.
Whirlpool, which produces a range of white goods from washing machines to dishwashers, ovens to fridges and hoods to coffee makers, required additional space to showcase its products at its UK head office in Peterborough.
Whirlpool required a sturdy semi-permanent showroom capable of withstanding high winds and noise, and which was more akin to a permanent building.
Technicians from Northamptonshire-based Neptunus took just a week to erect the building, on disused ground on the Whirlpool site, and a further three weeks for the internal fit-out of the state-of-the-art showroom. The facility has been created within one of Neptunus’s Evolution II temporary buildings which covers over 1,000 square metres and stands on six metre legs with solid insulated roof and walls and a glazed frontage.
Jayson Weston, Whirlpool’s Sales & Marketing Support Director, said: “Our previous temporary facility was affected by noise and movement in very windy conditions. We therefore required a much more robust building for our temporary showroom. We looked at alterative options and our research led us to Neptunus whose Evolution technology is far more robust and rigid than traditional temporary structures, providing us with a far superior and more comfortable environment to exhibit our appliances in.”
The showroom will remain on site throughout 2016 in Morley Way, Peterborough, where over 1,000 people work producing Whirlpool appliances.
Neptunus Managing Director April Trasler said: “We are delighted Whirlpool chose Neptunus for this project which demonstrates the sturdiness and flexibility of our Evolution technology. Our Evolution temporary buildings are ideal for a multitude of uses to provide businesses with swift and reliable solutions for their additional space requirements such as offices, conference centres, warehouses, supermarkets, dining halls, sports halls and even living accommodation.”
