Achilles UVDB Validation Achieved by Pickerings

Pickerings, the national supplier of high quality modular buildings, portable accommodation and related services, has been validated as a supplier to Achilles UVDB - the utility industry pre-qualification system.

The scheme is used by the utilities sector in the UK to manage risk within the supply chain and comply with EU regulations. UVDB is used by National Grid, SSE, Thames Water and many utility buyer organisations to source potential suppliers.

Pickerings is a registered supplier to Achilles UVDB for the following categories and products:

  • 1.1.38.0 Steel container stores
  • 1.2.9.0 Mobile Accommodation Units
  • 2.8.23.0 Generator Hire (System Use)
  • 2.8.29.0 Mobile Accommodation Unit Hire
  • 4.1.33.0 Modular Building Structures

Amongst the benefits to utility companies and their contractors of using Achilles UVDB is there is no need for pre-qualification assessment to be carried out on suppliers. Their team of qualified assessors and auditors provide on location site audits to validate suppliers’ capabilities and ensure compliance with legislative and corporate standards.

Pickerings has its head office at Measham in the heart of the Midlands and operates from twelve depots strategically placed nationwide providing modular buildings, portable accommodation and associated products. Customers have the option to hire, buy or lease purchase from Pickerings.
