Woolwich barber’s shop is on a roll

Posted on: 28th November, 2018

A new mobile barber’s shop in Woolwich market has been attracting plenty of attention over the past week owing to the fact that it’s literally on wheels. Azad Abdullah’s ‘Portopod’ has been built onto a car transport trailer and consists of a steel frame cladded with cedar wood and a rubberised roof. The new shop, which has 3 chairs and is fully equipped with electrical points also qualifies as a temporary structure.

Azad, who worked with GDL Developments on the project is thrilled with the result: ‘GDL really listened to my ideas and then worked with me to ensure that I got the bespoke Portopods I wanted’ he says ‘The customers love it, they can just pop in for a quick hair cut when they’re visiting the market’

Damon Dawson, Director at GDL Developments said ‘Portopods are a really flexible solution for businesses such as dog groomers, beauty bars and chiropractors’. These Mobile Trailer Buildings are ideal for start-ups.
