What do you enjoy most about WillScot?
I love that it is a flexible business that serves a wide variety of customers. I will be working at an air force base one day, then a high-profile sporting event like the Super Bowl another day. It’s pretty amazing to be able to draw out a building, then watch it go up right before your eyes.
Any notable projects you would like to tell us about?
Yes. On Monday, April 27, 2015, Baltimore City erupted in chaos with violence, vandalism and looting after a young man died in police custody under questionable circumstances. By the time the mayor declared a citywide curfew, numerous city businesses had been broken into, burned and/or inoperable. A Rite Aid
near the city center was one of those business victims. The store’s management was committed to reopening and serving its customers as quickly as possible. Lobar Associates, one of Rite Aid’s preferred contractors and a WillScot customer, was contacted to develop a temporary site to serve Rite Aid customers as they rebuilt their store. After quick but careful review of the proposal, WillScot was selected by Rite Aid because they were best positioned to deliver a quality solution that met the urgent timeline of the project
. Within 8 days, William Scotsman had 1,632 square feet of commercial space ready for Rite Aid occupancy.
