- Two large training rooms
- Welfare facilities
As a specialist in healthcare design, Portakabin understands how important space is to emergency care providers. Most recently, Portakabin has worked with the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) in the delivery of high-quality training facilities around the United Kingdom to support their team after taking on 300 new recruits.
Mark Fox, Regional Hire Manager at Portakabin said, “We were able to install each EMAS building in just one day which minimised disruption to the site dramatically. This meant that the paramedic teams could continue providing their life-saving care without being interrupted and training for new recruits could commence as quickly as possible.
"Creating multiple training facilities on the ambulance station sites means that trainers and new recruits will have access to facilities right on their doorstep. This is something we can replicate quickly for any emergency service across the UK and Ireland."
This partnership, creating local education estate in such a short time frame, is a positive step forward to provide more development opportunities for our staff and strengthen and improve patient care.

Key requirements for the project were to incorporate the structure of an existing two-storey modular ward block into the new scheme; to minimise disruption to the adjacent hospital building.
