Portakabin Site Accommodation was established in 2006 to provide site accommodation of unrivalled quality for the construction sector, backed by assured service levels from experienced teams based at Hire Centres across the UK.
Setting new standards for site accommodation
Every one of our buildings is manufactured by us to exacting standards, assuring you of consistent-quality, modern buildings for your site. Our all-steel buildings are specially designed for construction site applications, offering superior durability and security, combined with comfortable, well-ventilated interiors and smart, white exteriors to enhance the appearance of your site. Constant innovation ensures we remain at the forefront of site cabin design, and we were the first supplier to offer a site office with an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate - the Konstructa Energy-Saver Plus building.
High-quality site buildings for every site application
We supply site cabins to fulfil every construction site application, including site offices, canteens and mess rooms, toilet and showers, changing and drying rooms and storage units. You can also source all the furniture, staircases, effluent tanks and other extras you need to create fully functioning, well-equipped site buildings. Your site accommodation can even be customised with your corporate colours and branding.

The quality of Portakabin Site Accommodation portable buildings is backed by a standard of service that is second to none in the site accommodation sector.

We even back up this promise with the pledge that, in the unlikely event we ever fail to meet your contract start date, we’ll give you a week’s free hire.1

“Thanks to detailed planning, the installation work was carried out very safely, efficiently and on schedule. The low-level lifting technique meant there was no requirement at all for ladders, which significantly enhanced safety on site. The buildings themselves are excellent. In fact, they are the best site cabins I have ever hired.”Tony Dougan, Project Manager, ISG Construction
