Capabilities and resources to fulfil
every school requirement anywhere in the country

“I am delighted that Portakabin was able to meet our requirements at such short notice, particularly given the scale of the project – getting 16 buildings ready for the pupils in just four days is no mean feat! It was great to see such collaboration, commitment and focus on the urgency of the project to ensure the school could re-open so quickly. We have received only positive feedback from the school about the quality of the classrooms and could not have asked for a better service. ”

Andrew Kerr, Chief Executive, City of Edinburgh Council

"We cannot speak highly enough of the Portakabin team. They worked at breakneck speed to get our school up and running again. The quality and finish of the buildings, how they have been set up and organised and the size of the classrooms is all excellent. It has surpassed all our expectations."

Andrew Sprakes, Headteacher, Campsmount Technology College
