Case Studies

As a framework agreement supplier, Portakabin has worked successfully with us to deliver several new school buildings across the city. For the Greenmount School project, Portakabin collaborated with us to develop a building design that fulfilled the school’s requirements. Importantly, they were able to provide a complete solution, as required by the framework agreement, managing everything from demolition and groundworks through to heating and alarm system installations.
