Jaguar Land Rover required a Security and Emergency Operations building capable of dispatching emergency vehicles to any point on its Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC) site within four minutes. Portakabin won the contract thanks to its ability to deliver a turnkey building within eight months for Jaguar Land Rover.
Portakabin won the contract thanks to its ability to deliver a turnkey building within eight months for Jaguar Land Rover.
The building, manufactured in its entirety off site at the Portakabin factory in York, contains offices for on site security as well as a double height, modular hall for Jaguar Land Rover’s own ambulance and fire vehicles. With up to 6.85m clear internal height, the modular hall is the latest innovation from Portakabin, offering a decrease in risk for projects dependant on tight time frames as it is completely manufactured off site in factory-controlled conditions.
Almost 500m2 of space has been installed with zero impact to on-going production and operations, something that would not have been available from a traditional contractor and an element of the project delivery phase that Jaguar Land Rover simply weren’t able to compromise on. By completely manufacturing the building off site, Portakabin was able to deliver and install the building on site in four days.
As a British manufacturer ourselves, we knew Jaguar Land Rover would be able to appreciate an offsite answer to this challenge. We are the only business capable of delivering something this size, this quickly and we’re delighted to showcase the benefits of this.

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.
