Steel Framed Buildings


Choose a permanent-quality Portakabin building for any application – to accommodate as many people as you need

When you need a new building, for any end use or for any number of people, you can be sure that Portakabin has a portable or modular building to meet your requirements. We have an unrivalled track record of designing and delivering buildings across Ireland for every conceivable application, from classrooms to canteens and from offices to hospitals. The all-steel Portakabin buildings we supply are manufactured to ISO9001 quality standards and meet all existing building regulations – so you know that whatever building you need, it will be constructed to the highest possible standards.

The inherent versatility of our prefabricated modular building systems enables us to develop buildings for even the most demanding or obscure applications. In this section you will find examples of some of the most common, as well as some of the more unusual, applications for our buildings. But this is not an exhaustive list. If you need a building type that is not included here, please get in touch – and we'll be happy to design a building that fulfils your specific requirements.
