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.
“The first batch of 18 buildings were delivered in good time and were quickly erected in just two days. It meant they were up and running earlier than we expected. The coordination between Portakabin Site Accommodation and Mace Plus throughout the project was excellent. Portakabin Site Accommodation kept us well informed at all times and ensured we knew exactly when the buildings would be arriving. We were really impressed by the level of service provided.”Nick Topham, Construction Manager, Mace Plus
“We spoke to several cabin companies, none of which could find a solution – all their stock was too big or they couldn’t get enough in. Either that or their solutions were prohibitive cost-wise. It’s been like key-hole surgery to get units into this site. The Portakabin Site Accommodation solution worked well in terms of space and was relatively competitive – we haven’t paid a premium for the extra service and attention we have received.”Andy Thomas, Managing Surveyor
