GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURE SOLUTIONS
Sunbelt Rentals is proud to be the leading provider of temporary infrastructure, plant and machinery, rental equipment, and managed solutions for the UK Government.
We supply to Central Government departments, Devolved Powers, and Local Authorities, providing solutions across the Infrastructure, Construction, Events, Energy, Industrial, and Facilities Management sectors – meaning we are your one-stop-shop covering national, regional, and local government needs.
Our award-winning team supports the ‘levelling up’ agenda and has consistently worked across the UK as a strategic partner of government entities – be that as a preferred partner of the Department for Environment, the Department for Health & Social Care or the MET Police, delivering national infrastructure projects like the development of HS2, or assisting DEFRA and the Environment Agency with its rapid response to natural events, including recent flooding and cases of bird flu.
Over recent years we worked alongside the UK government to deploy thousands of assets over hundreds of Covid-19 testing sites across the country, designing and building the sites and providing a fully managed service thereafter.
We also designed and built temporary infrastructure solutions for high-profile events at the G7 Leaders’ Summit in Cornwall as well as the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow.
Through our comprehensive 360 Solutions offering, whatever your requirement, however big or small, emergency or planned, we can help make it happen – whatever it takes.
