Planning permission can take up to 12 weeks but we can do it for you
Both permanent and interim modular buildings require planning permission but leave it to us, we will be able to help you through the process.
It usually takes up to 12 weeks to be granted planning permission from a validated application, so speak to us as soon as possible to make sure your project can be delivered in time.
How will you pay for your building? You get three ways to “buy” when you choose Portakabin
Knowing how you will fund your project, whether its via capital or revenue, is key to knowing what you can achieve. We’ll guide you through all the options; hiring, or buying new or refurbished modular buildings, to choose the one that’s right for you.
Discuss your requirements – we can help make sure you have everything you need
Don’t forget, an increase of space will increase the need for other facilities. Portakabin buildings are so versatile, they can be used for any application and an interim solution can also provide you with decant space while a permanent solution is being constructed. Portakabin has an in-house team dedicated to providing all the additional extras you might have forgotten about; from Wi-Fi points to white boards – we’ll remember so you don’t have to.
Speaking to our designers will also help you think about future-proofing your building so it can change and develop as your requirements do.
What is your deadline? Portakabin can deliver buildings in just days
If you have a tight deadline for completion, a Portakabin building could be the best solution for you, as modular has 50% faster construction programmes in comparison to traditional builds. Portakabin has the capability to deliver up to 70% faster and in some cases, buildings can be installed and ready to use within days.
Consider all the costs – has your supplier included them all?
A project is much more than just the building. It’s important to also consider the cost of groundworks, landscaping, security, decorating and furniture. Dealing with just one supplier like Portakabin for the entire project can help with this and will ensure you have everything planned out in advance. Portakabin has a unique on time on budget promise so you can rest assured the price we quote is the price you pay.
This is also the time to think about the whole life costs of a building and knowing what options are available to keep costs low. Portakabin offers a wide range of energy efficient features.
Portakabin is on a number of frameworks so you can be confident of your total building cost.
Our unique promise to you – on time or we pay!
While other building suppliers may claim to deliver on time, Portakabin is the only one to offer generous compensation if we fail to do so. In the unlikely event that we ever fail to deliver on the agreed completion date we'll give you a week's free hire or, if you buy your building, we will refund 1% of your contract value for every week the project is delayed. That gives you complete assurance of our commitment to delivering your project on time, every time and it means you won’t have to worry about delays causing inconvenience, cost and disruption to your organisation.
