The school office plays a vital role in the smooth running of any school, and portable school offices are a perfect solution. They provide comfortable modern working environments for the busy hub of any education centre. Whether your school needs a single temporary education office space or large-scale permanent office buildings, no matter what size buildings and school office units you need, there are many benefits to using modular construction for your school.

Single temporary cabins to portable school office buildings

A portable education office offers all the benefits of a traditionally built one, whether you’re looking for small cabin space or a full school office complex. Our portable school offices can be ready up to 70% faster than a traditionally constructed building, with the added benefit of being portable for complete flexibility.

However quickly you need your buildings, our prefabricated office designs are suitable for all timeframes. Each steel frame comes with a 30-year warranty, and is made with durable materials to withstand the elements. With our modular solutions, you can increase or reduce the number of your portable school office units as your needs change.

Things have come a long way from the old idea of the prefab school office and the modern portable office provides the comfort and design you expect in contemporary education office buildings. They’re also a more sustainable solution thanks to reduced waste and off-site manufacturing.

One-stop-shop for portable education offices

While many Trusts have to wait months for their school buildings, our portable school offices can be ready within a few days – complete with plumbing, electrics and interior fittings in place. You can rest assured that your school can remain undisturbed while we get on with preparing your building for speedy installation. 

Whether it’s a luxury office space or a simple office unit for temporary cover, we often deliver school offices in a matter of days. Our permanent education office complexes can be ready up to 70% faster than a traditionally constructed building, saving you time, money and the hassle of managing learning space challenges. We often install buildings during school holidays too, to minimise any disruption.

Why Portakabin?

With more than 50 years’ experience in building portable offices for schools, you can count on Portakabin no matter what building size you need and whether it’s on a temporary or long-term basis.

When you buy a portable school office building from Portakabin, you’ll have access to our full range of services. We’ll project manage the whole modular construction project from design to planning applications, connectivity and aftercare. We’ll even buy it back when you’re done.

We really appreciated our tour of the factory in York to see our school being built at first hand – an experience which we could then share with the children. Parents and governors have been really delighted and astonished with the new facilities and what has been achieved in just a few months.
