Case Studies

Your classroom from Portakabin

  • Bespoke classrooms designed to meet your specific requirements
  • Choose from temporary classrooms - installed and ready to use in a matter of days - or a permanent learning environment
  • Minimal disruption and improved site safety thanks to fewer vehicle movements and less noise and less waste than a traditional construction site
  • Well-ventilated classrooms reduce CO2 build-up and improve concentration levels. Increased ventilation rates have been shown to improve maths and reading test scores1
  • Plenty of natural light for a bright, welcoming environment. Pupils who work in a naturally lit school classroom have been shown to perform up to 26% better than those working in artificial light2
  • All buildings installed with enhanced child safety in mind, and fitted with safety features such as finger guards on doors and low surface temperature heaters
  • A wide variety of interior or external extras, including interactive whiteboards, vision panels, furniture, external finishes and security systems
  • Well-insulated, air-tight buildings fitted with movement-sensitive PIR lighting for enhanced energy efficiency
  • Designed to meet permanent building regulations, including Part M, Equality Act and SENDA
  • Our mobile classrooms can easily be relocated from site to site if your pupil numbers change
