Portakabin Site Accommodation shares the industry’s commitment to sustainability and can help you to achieve your own carbon-reduction targets. Not only do we manufacture a range of energy-efficient site cabins, we also operate our manufacturing facilities and Hire Centres in a manner that minimises waste and energy use and preserves valuable resources.
State-of-the-art software is used to design buildings that deliver maximum energy efficiency with minimal waste generation. Portakabin Site Accommodation site accommodation is designed to minimise air leakage, energy consumption and carbon emissions over their lifetime, giving them an inherently low carbon footprint.
The Konstructa Energy-Saver Plus building is the only site office in the UK to be ‘A’ rated for energy efficiency. It can help you to reduce your energy use by up to 76%, resulting in 3.5 tonnes LESS carbon per year and a staggering 87% reduction on running costs compared to a traditional site cabin. This building complements our range of Konstructa Energy-Saver units, which also offer significant reductions in energy and water use.
Sustainable manufacturing methods
All Portakabin Site Accommodation buildings are manufactured in a factory that is ISO 14001 accredited for its environmental management system. Choosing our buildings can help you to achieve Considerate Constructors Scheme certification and gain your targeted BREEAM rating for your site. It can also help to alleviate the impact of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme on your business.
The manufacture of portable cabins that can be reused again and again is an inherently sustainable construction method. Manufacturing buildings under factory conditions means that quality can be carefully controlled and buildings completed right on schedule with minimal waste.
After improving the management of waste by integrating waste streaming and segregation across the Huntington site, The Group achieved the goal of zero waste to landfill in January 2012. Any non-recyclable waste is now being incinerated for power generation.
When you choose Portakabin Site Accommodation buildings, you can be sure they are energy efficient and cost effective to run, with the peace of mind that they comply with all necessary environmental legislation for the construction sector.
“Because Portakabin Site Accommodation also supplied all the furniture we needed, we just had one point of contact for all of our temporary site accommodation needs. On this first project with Portakabin Site Accommodation, the company met all of our quality and service requirements, and we will certainly use them again in future.”Barry Bryce, Retail Unit Manager, Barr Construction
“We were really impressed by the high standard of the Site Accommodation buildings and we had some good feedback from the contractors who were using them every day. The service we received from Portakabin Site Accommodation was excellent and the buildings performed well throughout this abnormally long outage. Next year we will be back to a normal ten-day maintenance shutdown and Portakabin Site Accommodation will be top of our list to provide our temporary site accommodation.”Robin Heward, Mechanical Maintenance Coordinator, Corby Power Station
