In the sensitive school environment it’s essential to ensure your mechanical and electrical equipment is protected yet easily accessed within a robust, secure building. With the spacious open plan areas of a Portakabin building, your plant room can be customised to enable easy access for maintenance or replacement of equipment.

Highly secure for peace of mind

Just as these buildings protect the equipment within them, their security features help to protect the school population, preventing unauthorised access by students, pupils and visitors.


Our comprehensive service, from concept to completion, ensures that your plant room will be designed and delivered to meet not just your needs but also regulatory requirements.

Facilities you can rely on

The efficiency of our precision-engineered buildings will keep your plant and machinery in the conditions required to maintain your services. What’s more, your plant room can be reconfigured or relocated at any stage in the future.

From schools to universities

We’ve incorporated plant rooms into educational establishments of every scale across the UK, so rest assured that we’ll deliver as promised.

Portakabin added real value to the project and made the magic of regenerating a school really exciting for the children. We would recommend the off-site approach and Portakabin to other schools in a similar situation. The finished building has definitely exceeded our expectations
