What are portable cabins?

A portable cabin is a stand-alone building made from steel frames. Rather than disrupting your site, we manufacture all our cabins in our own factories to your specifications. We then install the buildings by crane, minimising time on site and reducing your carbon footprint.

  1. Ready-to-use portable cabin space

    Portable modular buildings are fully flexible. This means that you can downsize or upgrade easily – for example, adding an extra storey on top of an existing Portakabin modular building. They can also be transported with minimum disruption. If you choose a non-permanent hire option, we can remove it from your site when you’ve finished using it.

    Portable cabins are more than just steel structures. They come ready-made with all fixtures and fittings, including electricity and gas supply. Once we’re finished in the factory, we’ll plug your cabin in and you’ll be ready to go.

  2. Suitable for any application

    Thanks to their mobility and flexibility, portable cabins are suitable for many sectors. Choose cabins for use as offices, healthcare units, construction site buildings and laboratories. The huge range of sizes gives you options to choose anything from a simple exterior toilet cubicle to a larger marketing suite. Use the cabins for storage, welfare units, GP surgeries or canteens.

  3. Pre-configured cabins ready for hire now

    We have ready-to-use cabins for hire that can be delivered in days. These pre-configured buildings save time and maximise value.
