When Monmore Green Stadium, home of greyhound racing, was looking for a way to cool down hot dogs, the management team found that the answer right on their doorstep.
The Wolverhampton stadium, which is owned by Ladbrokes plc, wanted to create a “chiller room” for use as an additional veterinary facility, and turned to the S Jones Containers shipping container conversion team to bring their vision to life.
The team at Monmore Green Stadium outlined their requirements to Les Newick, technical sales and design manager at S Jones Containers, for a specialist facility for over-heated dogs.
Richard Brankley, head of stadia at Ladbrokes plc, explained: “We wanted a unit specifically to cool down a greyhound on the rare occasion they become anxious or over-excited.
“Dogs do not have sweat glands, so they reduce body heat through panting. This is best aided by the combination of managing ambient air temperature and controlling air flow.”
But Monmore Green could not afford the time and disruption involved in having a special unit built at the stadium.
The S Jones Solution
The specialist team at S Jones provided a full design specification for the unit and provided a tour of the site to help the decision making on sizes and available finishes.
The 10ft bespoke unit featured HVAC, a personnel door and window, a tap with cold water plumbing, aluminium flooring and electrics. Before delivery, it was re-painted to the customers specifiation.Get a Quote
What Ladbrokes Had To Say
Speaking on the success of the project, Mr Brankley commented: “Having a container built and furnished off-site and simply delivered as a complete unit was the perfect solution.”
We dealt with leanne, and found her to be very help with good communication. The container arrived exactly as we wanted. Thankyou
Lorna and the team supplied a great service from start to finish. I made several enquiries with a few so called suppliers on line "Ebay and the likes" all turned out to be fraudsters. I turned to S Jone as they are a company with a pedigree second to none,been about years in the transport and container sector. I actually attended there training school back in the day for various courses. If on line it looks too good to be true keep away,pay a little more money for a first class service from a company that delivers. I highly recommend S Jones for all your container requirements. Top service from Lorna and the team, Thankyou.👍
great communication throughout thank you
