Why Portakabin Design and Build

Expertise and stability to trust in

A Portakabin Design and Build solution provides more than just a quality product. You can be sure of a level of expertise and support that is second to none.

The Portakabin Group has been a pioneer in off-site construction for over 50 years, now employing over 1,600 colleagues in seven countries. What’s more, we’re here to stay. A Dun & Bradstreet credit score rating of 1 means you can have confidence in our financial stability.1

Something for everyone

We specialise in manufacturing and supplying professionally designed buildings of the highest quality for prestigious construction projects across the UK.

Take a look at the state-of-the-art research facilities for the International Institute for Nanocomposites Manufacturing at WMG at the University of Warwick, or the 7,000sqm two-storey curriculum wings for the new Cambourne Village College, amongst other examples of our ground-breaking solutions for customers in education and health to manufacturing and utilities.

Quality and speed without compromise

Off-site construction can be completed up to 50% faster than traditional construction and by fabricating bespoke steel-framed buildings in a controlled manufacturing facility, we offer complete quality assurance. 99.7% of our projects are delivered on time and on budget2 - in stark contrast to the rest of the construction industry which only averages 75% on budget and 46% on time.3

Added peace of mind

Off-site construction is an exciting, sustainable alternative to traditional construction, when innovative design, supply assurance and speed of delivery are top priorities.

Portakabin Design and Build solutions are fully accredited for compliance with all permanent building regulations, as well as meeting many sector-specific regulatory requirements.

We actively monitor customer satisfaction to ensure that we are maintaining our high standards. In fact, in the 12 months to end October 2013 we carried out 1,650 Customer Satisfaction Interviews and achieved an average score of 9.2 out of 10.
