Space to learn is always complemented by room to relax. With changing student requirements and a fluctuating in-take, your Common Room can be designed to meet your specifications, with a host of interior and exterior options available to tailor the building to your needs.

Ultimate flexibility

The vast, column-free spaces that are created inside give us the ultimate flexibility to configure your student’s union or common room building just the way you want it. Outside, your building can be finished in a variety of materials, with a range of roof options, to complement the surrounding environment


Thanks to the modular structure of Portakabin buildings, we are able to expand upwards with a multi-storey structure and outwards with multiple layout options and unlimited floor area, depending on your requirements.
