A plant room is a room that serves the primary function of securely housing and protecting your mechanical and electrical equipment. Plant rooms form a key component in the vital infrastructure of many organisations and they are a consideration whatever buildings you’re planning, from schools and hospitals to manufacturing plants or research laboratories. The all-steel, ISO-accredited buildings from Portakabin provide the ideal solution for a dedicated plant room that’s robust and secure.

Spacious, climate controlled environments for sensitive equipment

Large, open-plan areas can be customised to create a suitable space for your plant and to provide easy access for maintenance. With the addition of climate control systems the right environment can be maintained for any sensitive equipment.


Our one-stop-shop service, from planning to installation and interior fit-out, means you can look forward to a fully-compliant, ready-to-use plant room with minimal disruption to your daily activities.

Lasting quality

You can rely on our precision-built buildings, to consistently deliver optimum performance for years to come. In particular, a specialist concrete flooring can be integrated for the heavy load-bearing requirements of your plant room.


Whether it’s stand-alone or linked to existing buildings, your plant room can be expanded or relocated easily, helping with future premises planning.

We’ve incorporated plant rooms into projects of every scale across the UK, from construction sites to schools and hospitals like Royal Stoke University Hospital. So rest assured that we’ll deliver as promised.

The project was a great success and the team at Portakabin were very knowledgeable and helpful. Their technical understanding helped us to specify the building, and the service we received both before and after delivery was excellent.
