Hire Industry Product Of The Year
Our 6 Bay Luxury Vacuum Toilet Pods have been considered for the Hire Industry Product Of The Year. Our Vacuum Pods are unique to Site Event as they are designed, manufactured and decorated in our workshop by our sister company, Site Build. The units are very deluxe in design and procure impressive environmental credentials due to their eco-friendly design. The Vacuum Pods have significantly less water consumption with 0.5L per flush compared with the 9L standard in a traditional toilet, this is down to the vacuum function in which the waste is vacuumed away into a large external tank rather than simply flushed with an excessive amount of water as displayed in a traditional unit. The Vacuum Pods also save on transportation as 4 pod’s can be delivered onto one transportation load as opposed to 4 individual vehicle trips, cutting our carbon footprint down by 75%!
Best Use Of New Media
Site Equip have been running the ‘Cheers to 30 Years’ social media campaign since October 2018 to mark 30 years in the business. The family-led company was formed in 1988 by our managing director Geoff Gilbert and his wife, Sonia Gilbert, as they pioneered into the world of portable toilet hire, beginning with construction and branching out into event hire.
The aim of the campaign is to showcase our success stories, history and expertise through the use of old and new media collected over the last 30 years in business. As part of the campaign, we have designed and arranged our images to be able to work both individually and as a part of a grid, with each image feeding into the next to create a fluid visual aesthetic. The images included are a mixture of old and new photographs, newspaper clippings and magazine articles which link in to the most current blog post or event that we are celebrating.
