Helping to cut your carbon footprint and achieve your environmental objectives

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.

Energy-saving buildings
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.

We were really impressed by the quality of products in the Portakabin Site Accommodation portfolio, which looked much better than anything we had used in the past…at every stage, Portakabin Site Accommodation ensured the project ran smoothly. Everything from risk assessments and method statements to safety procedures and installation were organised and completed very thoroughly.”

Robin Heward, Mechanical Maintenance Coordinator, Corby Power Station

"We needed a building supplier that had the resources to provide all the site-based facilities for this large project while also fulfilling our environmental criteria and being competitive on price. The specification of the building was very important, and we were immediately impressed with the Energy-Saver building offered by Portakabin Site Accommodation. We visited Portakabin Site Accommodation to see the building for ourselves and found that it lived up to all its promises for energy-saving performance."

Adrian Myles, Accommodation Manager at BAM
