Buying your building from Portakabin

Since 2003, 99.7% of Portakabin building projects have been completed on time and on budget.1 The average for the traditional construction industry is just 45% completed on time and 63% on budget...2

When you buy a modular or portable building from Portakabin you are investing in a high-quality asset that’s constructed to permanent building standards. Your entire building project will be completed up to 50% faster than if you chose a traditionally constructed building. You can even buy everything you need to complete your building from Portakabin. That includes everything from furniture and air-conditioning systems to access ramps and alarm systems. What’s more, a modular building can easily be reconfigured or even relocated if your requirements change in future.

Why buy a building from Portakabin?

1. Buildings meet permanent building standards
British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification confirms that the steel structure of your Portakabin building will provide a minimum life of 60 years and the external envelope and internal finishes will give you a design life of 60 years. Local Authority Building Control (LABC) certification confirms compliance with all relevant Building Regulations and Building Standards. All new buildings are also covered by the Portakabin 5-year product warranty and 30-year structural warranty package. The design features and optional extras available mean that your Portakabin building can even be designed to look just like a traditionally constructed one.

2. On time, on budget… our promise
The Portakabin Customer Charter contains the promise that your building project will be completed on time and on budget. In the unlikely event that we ever fail to do this, we’ll give you an additional 12 months’ product warranty on your building.3 However, you'll be reassured to know that we have a track record of delivering 99.7% of projects on time and on budget.1 That compares very favourably with an average of just 45% completed on time and 63% on budget for the traditional construction industry.2

3. Buildings completed up to 50% faster than traditional construction projects
Modular methods of construction enable your building to be finished up to 50% faster than using traditional methods of site-based construction.4 And because buildings are fabricated off-site in our factory, the on-site installation phase is much faster, cleaner, safer and less disruptive than traditional construction work.

4. Complete one-stop shop
When you buy a building from Portakabin you can leave everything to us – from building design and planning permission applications through to delivering and installing your building and fitting it out with everything you need. That gives you just one supplier to deal with – simplifying the project for you and ensuring every aspect of the work is carefully coordinated to deliver an efficient build programme.

5. Future flexibility
Modular buildings can easily be extended, reduced, reconfigured or even relocated, with the minimum of fuss – to meet your changing requirements.

6. Supplier you can rely on
When you choose Portakabin you can be sure we’ll be here for the long term – to support you long after your building is completed. The Portakabin Group has a top credit score of 1 from Dun and Bradstreet, putting us among the top 15% of UK companies for financial stability – so we're not going to disappear overnight.

‘We have worked with the team at Portakabin Events for a number of years now and we have always been extremely pleased with the quality of the buildings and toilet facilities they have provided."

Michael Wells, Assistant Director

“We were very happy with the as-new quality of the facilities from Portaloo, which certainly fulfilled our brief to deliver premium-standard amenities. They performed well throughout the summer and handled the high-volume use with no problems."

Jamie Charlesworth, Operations Manager
