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.
“All of the units arrived in excellent condition, and many of them were brand new. Everyone on site has been very happy with the quality of the accommodation, which looks clean and professional.”Barry Bryce, Retail Unit Manager, Barr Construction
"The fact that Portakabin Site Accommodation was able to turn these buildings around and provide them fully furnished within a couple of days was fantastic. If they hadn't been able to get the buildings on site so quickly, the whole project would have been delayed. I'll definitely be requesting Portakabin Site Accommodation buildings for future projects - there's nothing on the market to match them, or the service provided."Tony Traynor, Site Manager, Luddon Construction
