Gatehouse Upgrade

They approached Wernick Refurbished Buildings looking for a cabin to upgrade the gatehouse in their goods-in, goods out-area at their Birtley Depot in County Durham.

The WRB team modified and fully refurbished a 16’ x 9’ Plastisol clad jackleg cabin from their extensive fleet. On completion the cabin boasted uPVC double glazed windows, a bespoke powder coated sliding gatehouse window, anthracite hard wearing office carpet, wall mounted 2kW convector heating and Category II lighting. Externally the gatehouse cabin was finished in P&H’s corporate colours of honeysuckle and sigma red.

Wernick then delivered and positioned the gatehouse at the Birtley Depot, which had recently undergone an entrance overhaul. The delivery of the gatehouse office completed the refurbishment project.

Pat Leesson, regional security manager for P&H said, “The cabin was exactly what was required and the project was completed on time and to our specification. I am absolutely delighted with the product supplied and I would have no hesitation in using Wernick Refurbished Buildings for future projects.”
