The communications service provider KiKxxl is growing steadily, and the time had come to add another site. It selected the city of Bottrop in Germany due to the lack of competitors and excellent recruitment opportunities there. KiKxxl started out with a mobile room solution from ELA Container so it could quickly get up and running there.
‘Our permanent office buildings in the new Bauknecht district will not be ready to move into until spring 2022. In order to get online significantly earlier, we came up with a creative transitional solution and decided to set up office containers from ELA’, says Ralf Timmer, Head of Building Management at KiKxxl.
ELA completed the project in no time. ‘Even the assembly of the office con tainer system went very smoothly thanks to the professional team from ELA’, says Timmer. The feedback from the people who work there has been thoroughly positive.
‘With this temporary room solution, we were able to align the wishes of our customer with our experience and what was technically possible’, says ELA Area Sales Manager Simon Harenkamp.
The two-storey ELA office system has 520 square metres of space in total. It features several open-plan and individual offices, training rooms, a technical and storage room, sanitary facilities and kitchens. The storeys are connected by an internal stairwell, while an external emergency staircase keeps the occu-pants safe in the event of an emergency.
The technical equipment includes air-conditioning units for cooling and heating, smoke detectors, generous window areas and LED ceiling lights for a bright interior as well as creep zone protection. Cable channels enable the workstations to be networked and the necessary data centre to be set up. "This was configured so that it can be taken to the final location," says Timmer.
