Building Use - Teaching Blocks

110 education building projects delivered UK-wide every year during the busy eight-week summer holiday period

When you need extensive teaching and learning facilities of the highest standard, you can rely on Portakabin to supply school buildings of any size and configuration to meet your needs.

Our modular building systems can be designed to create large teaching blocks incorporating every education facility, from IT suites, laboratories, food technology rooms, music rooms and art rooms to break-out rooms, staff rooms, reception areas, toilets and changing rooms.

Why buy or hire your teaching blocks from Portakabin?

  • Column-free interiors enable completely flexible, multi-storey building layouts to be designed to your requirements
  • Choose fully glazed facades to enhance natural light levels. Pupils who sit in naturally lit classrooms have been shown to perform up to 26% better than those working in artificial light1
  • Buildings designed to support anti-bullying strategies, with unisex toilets and open-plan communal areas
  • Well-ventilated rooms reduce CO2 build-up, so pupils stay alert and attentive for longer
  • Buildings installed to HSE guidelines for enhanced child safety, and fitted with safety features such as finger guards on doors
  • Equip your teaching block with all the interior or external extras you need, including interactive whiteboards, vision panels, furniture, claddings and security systems
  • Buildings installed fast with fewer vehicle movements, less noise and less waste than a traditional construction site - for minimal disruption to your pupils and staff
  • Well-insulated, air-tight buildings fitted with movement-sensitive PIR lighting for enhanced energy efficiency
  • Designed to meet permanent building regulations, including Part M, Equality Act and SENDA

Capabilities and resources to fulfil every school requirement - anywhere in the country
Over the past three years, Portakabin has consistently delivered around 110 education projects each year in just eight weeks over the peak summer period. It's only because of our unrivalled capabilities and nationwide resources that we can consistently complete this scale of work on multiple school sites. So, whatever your requirements, you can rest assured that we will deliver - on time and on budget.

“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

Portakabin took care of the entire project, which was very successful. The liaison with Balfour Beatty Construction who were completing the main school build at the same time went very smoothly. Ultimately the building was delivered on time, ready for the whole school to open for business in September. The quality of the finished building is excellent and is a real asset to the Centre for Learning as a whole.”
