Permanent or interim operating theatres from Portakabin are designed to meet strict criteria and to be delivered fast with minimal disruption to hospital services. We can create quality-assured, fully compliant surgical buildings within short programme times. That means you get all the surgical facilities you need, without disrupting vital patient services.
Designed for specialist treatments
Factory-fitted concrete floors can be installed to provide the required response factors for precision in surgical procedures and to support specialist equipment. Theatres can also be designed to accommodate specialist treatments such as ultrasound scanning, and to provide medical gases and other essential services.
Designed and built to healthcare standards
A modular operating theatre from Portakabin is designed to your requirements and to meet healthcare standards including HTM (Health Technical Memoranda), HBN (Health Buildings Notes), SHTM (Scottish Health Technical Memoranda), WHTM (Welsh Health Technical Memoranda) and HAI-SCRIBE (Healthcare Associated Infection System for Controlling Risk in the Built Environment).

The off-site approach significantly reduced construction time, bringing benefit to thousands of patients who are waiting for surgery, whilst also minimising disruption to patient care during the building process.
