"The standard of the finished product exceeded all our expectations. As a fee-paying school, the quality of our accommodation is of paramount importance to us and to parents, and many were understandably anxious when they heard that we would be teaching in temporary buildings."

Alan MacGinty, Principal, Blackrock College

“We already had several modular classroom buildings on site, but they weren’t Portakabin buildings. However, I knew about Portakabin Allspace and I’d seen some of their buildings at other schools, which had impressed me with their quality. It was quite a change of direction for us to choose a new building supplier, but the clinching factor was the ceiling height of the Portakabin buildings, which gave them a real feeling of space inside.”

Fran Moloney, Principal, St Patricks College
