Konstructa Modular buildings have been purpose-designed to offer the highest levels of flexibi lity up to three storeys high, as well as protection against theft and vandalism.
All Portakabin Site Accommodation site accommodation is manufactured using robust all-steel construction methods combined with modern, innovative designs. Our specially designed fleet provides quality, comfort and style that is second to none.
External walls are a durable one-piece construction. The polyester-coated external and internal steel cladding offers protection against fire, extreme weather and accidental damage. The high performance, low maintenance surface provides an impact resistant and wipe clean finish.
The floor has a rigid galvanised steel frame. This gives the floor a sturdy and robust feel with a 2.5 kN/m2 UDL floor load. A structural floor deck covered with a fully bonded vinyl sheet adhered to the top of the frame, giving a durable, hard wearing floor covering.
Outstanding insulation is provided by the construction of the roof. The roof deck is of one-piece construction and is impact resistant. It is covered with solar-reflective, profiled plastisol-coated, galvanised steel to reduce heat gain. Internally, the ceiling is designed to prevent condensation problems. It is covered with the same polyester steel as the walls for a low-maintenance finish.
External door protection against theft and vandalism is given by the high-security galvanized steel door with a 14-point locking system as standard complete with a robust lever handle.
Double glazed powder coated aluminium top hung windows with integrated security mesh screen. The aluminium windows are double-glazed and offer good thermal and acoustic performance. Secure by design standard.
A variety of predefined solutions are available for convenience and speed of delivery, including site offices, toilets and changing and drying rooms and mess rooms. For more complex construction sites, Portakabin Site Accommodation also has the flexibility to customise internal layouts and provide combination units to suit specific needs. Buildings can be linked end to end and side to side and double or triple stacked in multiple configurations to form larger complexes and suit site requirements.
Portakabin Site Accommodation buildings are quickly and easily sited. The need for pad foundations is dependant on site conditions, total weight of the building and the imposed loads. Advice on foundation loads and positions will be given by Portakabin Site Accommodation staff.
Peace of mind is provided by the high levels of all-round performance achieved by the Portakabin Site Accommodation building series. All Portakabin Site Accommodation buildings have been designed and manufactured in the UK under a Quality Management System meeting the requirements of ISO 9001 meeting the ISO 14001 environmental standards and designed to Eurocode Standards. Robust all-steel construction and a specially designed anti-vandal specification means Portakabin Site Accommodation units provide optimum security on site.
