Our free, no-obligation Emergency Buildings Plans are designed to keep you functioning in the event of an emergency.

Minimise disruption in an emergency

If your buildings are unexpectedly damaged or made unusable, your top priority is to minimise disruption to your employees and customers, pupils, patients or visitors. That’s possible with high-quality, interim specialist facilities from Portakabin.

A little planning goes a long way

An up-to-date and accessible disaster recovery plan is essential to ensure you are as prepared as possible for a crisis, reducing the pressure in what is a highly pressurised situation.

We can draw on a wealth of experience in disaster recovery for buildings to establish an Emergency Buildings Plan which meets your company’s objectives.

  1. Zurich-preferred supplier

    As a preferred supplier of Zurich Insurance, Portakabin offers free plans to ensure you’re well prepared for an emergency and you can provide a continuous service.

    To draw up your plan, we will conduct a one-hour site assessment, before providing a detailed report showing how interim replacement buildings could be deployed to mitigate the impact of a disaster.

  2. Here's why you can rely on Portakabin:

    • 250,000m2 of covered manufacturing space – means we can always meet demand, uninterrupted by external factors such as weather

    • 4 locations and one of Ireland's largest stocks of buildings to hire - so we can rapidly deliver anywhere in the UK

    • Delivery track-record – 99.7% of delivered on time and on budget

    • Zurich Municipal approved – the UK's largest insurer of Local Education Authority buildings has appointed Portakabin as its approved-supplier of interim buildings

    Take advantage of this free, no-obligation service by arranging your one-hour assessment as soon as possible.

  3. The Emergency Buildings Plan includes:

    • A detailed breakdown of your requirements


    • An assessment of the space you have available for your interim facilities


    • A breakdown of any other needs such as: waste, drainage, electricity supply, access ramps, climate control, furniture and fire and security


    • A full comprehensive report summarising your building needs, our bespoke recommendation for your facilities, a breakdown of the cost along with everything you need to know about emergency building provision

The response from Portakabin and the whole property team following the floods was really outstanding…The fact that the building was delivered in just two weeks is really quite exceptional.
