The versatility of temporary portable buildings

Temporary portable buildings are versatile structures that can be used for a variety of purposes. Due to many of our customers only needing a modular building for a few months or a limited period of time, we offer a flexible and affordable portable cabin hire service to businesses, schools, construction sites, housebuilders and many other types of organisations across the UK.

To give you a feel for just how adaptable they can be, below are some of the ways in which portable cabins have been used by our customers over the years.


Site offices

Temporary portable buildings are commonly used as site offices for construction projects, allowing workers to have a comfortable and safe place to work. This maximises efficiency, productivity, security and safety on site, which helps to optimise the planning and construction stages.



Portable buildings can be used as temporary classrooms for nurseries, schools, colleges, universities and training providers, especially during times of renovation or expansion. They also make excellent school libraries, staff rooms and admin offices, plus they can even be kitted out as laboratories, catering facilities, toilet/shower units or cycle hubs.


Healthcare facilities

Portable cabins are very popular with the healthcare sector, as they can be used for a wide range of requirements such as clinics, blood donation centres, testing centres and immunisation hubs.


Retail spaces

The adaptability of portable buildings allows them to be used as temporary retail spaces, such as pop-up shops and seasonal stores, providing a cost-effective and flexible solution for brick-and-mortar businesses.



If your cupboards and drawers are full to the brim, portable buildings can be used as temporary storage units for materials, equipment or products, especially for businesses with limited space or when relocating to new premises.


Event spaces

Many of our customers have also turned our portable buildings into temporary event spaces, such as ticket booths, concession stands and even dressing rooms. This gives staff and performers suitable spaces for a range of activity during concerts, festivals and sporting events.



Portable buildings can be used as temporary accommodation for seasonal workers and visitors. This can significantly cut down costs for businesses that usually need to pay for hotels.


Nursery Modular buildings


Modular buildings are up to 70% faster and 50% cheaper

Now that you have a feel for how portable buildings can be used, we’re ready to offer even more reassurance that they’re the perfect solution for your business.

Modular buildings come in all shapes, sizes and configurations, plus you can choose units that have specific fixtures and styles. For instance, you may need a separate building to act as a reception or finance department, or perhaps you require additional dining facilities for employees. If you work at an educational institution, our portable cabins can be used as classrooms and hands-on learning spaces, such as workshops, art rooms and food preparation facilities. Then of course there are the commercial and retail sectors, which use our portable buildings as sales and marketing suites, pop-up event spaces, training centres and meeting rooms.

No matter which way you plan to use our modular buildings, you’ll be pleased to hear that they’re up to 70% faster and 50% cheaper than traditional construction. This means that your building can be in place very quickly with minimal disruption and at a much lower cost, plus it can be easily removed by our team when no longer required.


Portable cabins designed for comfort

Long gone are the days when prefabricated buildings were cold and damp places. Modern portable cabins are designed to be comfortable, accessible and welcoming, which makes them a popular choice with organisations across a wide range of sectors. Your portable cabins can be fitted with heating and cooling systems to ensure easy and effective temperature control, plus they include excellent ventilation to keep the air fresh throughout the year.

As for the configuration and fixtures, simply let us know what you need and we’ll make sure your portable building ticks all of the right boxes. Over the years we’ve designed and installed portable buildings with all kinds of layouts and features, including wooden floor coverings, contemporary seamless cladding, data sockets, kitchen suites, bathroom facilities, and electrically operated steel shutters for ultimate security. There really is nothing we can’t handle, so simply let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll deliver!


Modular buildings and energy efficiency

Like us, our customers are passionate about energy efficiency. That’s why we provide complete peace of mind that our portable cabins are a sustainable solution, as they’re all fitted with energy-efficient features such as double glazed windows and strong insulation. If you want to take this even further, ask us about automatic heating and cooling systems that will also help you to reduce your energy usage, plus the fitting of LED bulbs will ensure that less power is being used each day without compromising on quality, visibility and comfort.



We offer finance options

One of the main barriers that many businesses encounter is having the cash required to invest in a major resource such as portable buildings. That’s why we’ve teamed up with a successful and reputable financial solutions provider which has been securing competitive asset finance for businesses since 2009. This allows your business to take out a finance agreement that suits your budget and cash flow – there’s no lump sum and your payments are spread out over an agreed period.

Thanks to this offering, you can have your portable cabins installed right away instead of having to wait until more cash is freed up. It also means that you have the freedom to choose larger or more advanced portable cabins, rather than having to go for the cheapest option.
