EAST Yorkshire off site specialist Premier Modular has landed a major contract to provide 1,000 site office modules for the Hinkley Point C construction project. The complex will deliver offices and site welfare facilities required for the construction phase of the new nuclear power station in Somerset. The accommodation project will provide 38,000 sq m of office space to house all the management and technical personnel required during the construction stage of the plant. Part of the buildings will be converted after the construction cycle to remain as offices for the permanent site. Almost 1000 steel framed modules will be constructed off site at Premier’s manufacturing facility in East Yorkshire, before being transported to the Hinkley Point C site for final assembly and fitting out – a process that will take 16 months from manufacture to hand over. EDF Energy predicts that an estimated 25,000 job opportunities will be created over the construction of the new power station, including up to 1,000 apprenticeships.
