Modular construction is a highly-efficient method for delivering flexible, modern modular buildings, whether your priority is time, budget or quality. Our modular buildings can be a fast, high-quality solution. To create modular buildings in the process of modular construction, steel-framed modules are manufactured off site then delivered to site and craned into place.

  1. Total Flexibility

    In challenging times, you need to have a prefabricated solution you can trust. Modular constructions can be erected much faster than traditional buildings and in particular Portakabin solutions can be up to 70% faster – without compromising on quality. Ideal for healthcare, classrooms and more, modular helps you scale up or downsize at a moment’s notice.

  2. On time; on budget

    Not only are modules faster – they also offer great value for money. Portakabin is unique in the industry in providing an on time, on budget promise. If there’s a delay, we’ll pay. (Conditions apply)

  3. A sustainable alternative

    Meet your sustainability goals through the advantages of our lean manufacturing method. All construction takes place in an offsite environment before installation at your site, offering a sustainable build programme under factory conditions. This results in 90% less vehicle use, and 90% less waste.

  4. Permanent-standard durability

    Not all modular buildings are steel framed but ALL Portakabin modular buildings are constructed using steel frames. You can expect the same durability as a permanent structure and Portakabin modular buildings such as offices, retail units and healthcare facilities come with a 30-year structural warranty for your peace of mind.

  5. Total design freedom

    There are no limits to the possibilities of modular buildings. Offsite construction isn’t impeded by bad weather, skills shortages or low productivity. If you need to build upwards or sideways, gain or lose some space,  you can change your design even months or years later.

  6. Modular build techniques

    Ever wondered how the modular construction process works? This modern, sustainable and flexible manufacturing method offers many benefits.

  7. Off-site construction

    With your design in hand, our experts build the modules off site ready to be transported as ready-made and fitted-out buildings to your site.

  8. Ready-made buildings

    Volumetric construction methods mean that buildings can be installed ‘ready to go’ with fixtures and fittings in place giving you shorter programme times, faster occupancy and a quicker return on investment.

  9. Greener alternatives

    You can also buy highly sustainable, pre-owned Portakabin modules in a matter of weeks which in addition to the lower number of vehicle movements to site and reduced wastage all adds up to significant improvements for your sustainability targets.
