Expanding a holiday park site can be extremely costly, and owners face a very difficult decision when doing so – it is costly and time-consuming, the timeframe from conception to completion often spanning over more than one holiday season. What do you do? Do you decide not to expand and risk losing business because of outdated facilities? Or do you decide to make the jump and risk losing business throughout the duration of the construction?
Wessex Park Homes has an answer to this dilemma and has established a Utility Build division in order to provide park owners, hotels, schools and other organisations with swift, bespoke solutions to their accommodation problems. Galloway Point Holiday Park is one such satisfied client, situated in a fantastic coastal location with open views to the Irish Sea.
Owners Geoff and Hazel Love were unsure whether or not to upgrade their toilet block at the cost of losing business from major buildings works. The facilities were draughty and prefabricated, doing nothing to encourage repeat visits.
After consulting with Wessex Park sales manager Ray Currie the Utility Build division began work on a 48×22 ft building clad in attractive timber log lap, providing guests with superb toilet facilities and shower cubicles for both sexes, a stand-alone disabled bathroom, a laundry facility with washer/dryers and washing up area and, to the delight of young visitors to the Holiday Park, a games room complete with pool table, air hockey and other games machines.It is clear this project has been an astounding success, with glowing comments from all their guests and a distinct increase in longer reservations after its construction. One website blogger published the following:
“Stayed for two nights. Relatively new owners of this site have provided a state of the art toilet, shower laundry block, one of the very best I have used”
Geoff and Hazel were overjoyed with this success and have since called again for the Wessex team to co-develop a new reception/manager’s accommodation building in situ at Galloway Point for the start of the next holiday season.
