“We needed to ensure the temporary building provided a high standard of accommodation, since it would be on site for three years. For some undergraduates it would be their base for their entire degree course. The Portakabin Ultima building provided this high quality of working environment, and enabled us to create the large wide-open column-free space we needed for a multi-purpose room on the ground floor.”Martin Renshaw, Design Services Deputy Manager
“The university arranged the necessary service connections, then Portakabin provided a turn-key solution for these two buildings, from the groundworks and site preparation through to air-conditioning systems, security alarms, DDA access ramps, fencing and pathways. It made the job much simpler for us to manage because we only had one supplier to deal with. We had great support on site and our project manager at Portakabin was brilliant – nothing was too much trouble for him, including amendments to the specialist optometry areas, which helped the whole project to run smoothly
