National site accommodation specialists Portakabin has opened the doors of its latest location this month – on Westburn Farm Road in Cambuslang – and will host an open day on Thursday 12 October.

The £1.75 million investment by Portakabin at Cambuslang has doubled the size of its operation there to create a purpose-built refurbishment and refit centre with a new workshop and an extensive range of buildings to showcase to visitors.

The centre – one of ten dedicated site accommodation sites across the UK – will serve the whole of Scotland, showcasing the company’s latest designs, potential layouts and manufacturing skills for site accommodation which has been specifically engineered for the construction sector.

“What we’re most proud of at Cambuslang is the improvements we’ve made to the site footprint overall”, comments Mark Fox, Divisional Managing Director for Portakabin (Site Accommodation).

“Since securing the site we have made vast infrastructure upgrades including levelling a three-metre difference across the site and adding sustainable services across the estate.

“The new offices exceed building regulation thermal values using a fabric first approach and now include photovoltaic (PV) panels, energy managed welfare facilities, rainwater harvesting and electric vehicle charging points.

“Our refurbished workshop will double our output and provide a modern and covered working environment for our teams, incorporating photovoltaic (PV) panels and energy harvesting as standard.

“Visitors will be able to see first-hand, the enhanced capacity and scope of our operation in Scotland as well as the latest developments in quality and sustainability of our buildings,” said Mark.

“Coupled with the continued investment in our national portfolio, Portakabin has a strong story to tell the industry.”

The team in Cambuslang will expand from 11 to 16 employees, creating a number of opportunities for recruitment from the local area to support our ambitious plans for growth in Scotland.

Join Portakabin at their new location in Cambuslang, Scotland. Businesses can see behind the scenes at their newly expanded, purpose-built location.

Thursday 12 October from 08:30 - 14:00, Westburn Farm Road Cambuslang G72 7UB.
