Portakabin shortlisted for two Offsite Construction Awards


Modular construction pioneer Portakabin has been shortlisted for both Healthcare and Education Project of the Year awards

Portakabin has been shortlisted for Education Project of the Year for the delivery of Special Education Needs school Riverside Bridge and Healthcare Project of the Year for the extension of Royal Stoke University Hospital.

The Offsite Construction Awards celebrate the best in precision building design and delivery and reward outstanding examples of prefabrication and factory-based methods, products, systems and disciplines.

Portakabin has pioneered modular offsite construction for more than 50 years. The company provides the best quality buildings for hire and sale as well as refurbished and site accommodation solutions.

Both buildings are examples of how Portakabin is challenging traditional perceptions of offsite construction solutions and driving innovative ways of working within the modular industry.

Riverside Bridge School was manufactured on the Portakabin International Head Office site in York then delivered, module by module, to the school site in Barking for installation. The whole school, which is the first phase of the UK’s largest offsite education scheme, was assembled and fully fitted out after just 45 weeks on site. When complete the three-school campus will cover 23,000sqm and educate 2,645 children aged from 0 to 19.

The Royal Stoke University Hospital building provides 4,200m2 of interim ward and theatre space and was installed in just 18 days to minimise disruption to patient care. Taking less than four months from order to completion, the 56 in-patient ward, theatre and recovery building is one of the fastest healthcare projects delivered by the Portakabin team.

The Offsite Construction Awards evening takes place on Tuesday 13 June 2017.
