We needed the building  at very short notice, and we also expected that our needs would change in future,  which is why hiring a modular building was deemed the best option. It gave us  the flexibility we needed, as well as the short lead time.

We are all very happy with the quality of the building. The children have settled in well and the staff are absolutely delighted with the standard  of facility it provides. It means we can now deliver a high-quality nursery environment for all the local children who need it.

Janice Edwards, Director, Little Einsteins Nursery

 "We were very pleased with the service from Portakabin Allspace. Our new building has a permanent look and feel, and presents precisely the professional image that we wanted. We have even been able to fix our stand-alone lettering to the outside, which finishes the building off in style."
