Compliant ward units to support clinical requirements

Meeting Government Targets

Flexible ward space is critical in enabling hospitals to meet the Government’s 18-week referral to treatment target and in achieving the A&E four hour waiting target.

A modular solution enables Trusts to quickly adapt their space to keep up with changing patient demands. 

Bespoke Ward Units

We work closely with Trust stakeholders to design your modular healthcare building prioritising patient flow by attaching on our facilities in a way that works with your existing patient flow plans.
The ward unit can include:

  • Clean/dirty utility
  • Staff and kitchen area
  • Multi-disciplinary team meeting rooms (MDT)
  • Quiet rooms
  • Single ensuite rooms
  • Bed units 

All facilities can come complete with nurse call systems, medical gasses, access controls, wifi (data) and cap and cove flooring. 

Compliant Modular Healthcare Buildings

Our healthcare buildings can be designed to meet the latest healthcare standards including: HBN, HTM, WHBN, SHPN, HAI-SCRIBE where required. We also work closely with the IPC (infection prevention and control) to ensure we meet your hospital clinical needs. 

A Modular Solution For Speed, Quality And Convenience

Hiring a modular building offers significant speed, quality and environmental benefits over traditional building construction: 

  • Minimised disruption to your site 
    Your building is constructed and fitted out off site, before being delivered ready for rapid installation. That gives you guaranteed quality, cost control, improved site safety and minimal disruption to your hospital during installation.
  • Innovative buildings completed quickly 
    Projects can be delivered within days from stock, or in a matter of weeks for bespoke projects, giving you a faster return on your investment.
  • Assured building quality
    Portakabin buildings have BBA (British Board of Agrément) and LABC (Local Authority Building Control) approvals, confirming their compliance with all relevant Building Regulations and Building Standards.
  • Complete future flexibility 
    Hiring your building means that it can easily be removed or relocated if your needs change. It also means you can fund your building out of revenue, rather than capital budgets.

Our Promise - Your Project Delivered On Time And On Budget

When you choose a Portakabin building, you can rest assured that it will be delivered on time and on budget. That’s the promise we make in our unique Customer Charter. 

For your complete peace of mind, we even promise that, in the unlikely event we ever fail to meet your contract start date, we’ll give you a week’s free hire for every day we’re late. 

Request Your Free Emergency Buildings Plan

If a fire, flood or other emergency damages your buildings, your top priority is to minimise disruption for your patients. That may mean providing high quality, interim specialist healthcare facilities until your buildings can be repaired or rebuilt. 

As a preferred supplier of Zurich Insurance, Portakabin is offering a free Emergency Buildings Plan to ensure you’re well prepared for an emergency and you can provide a continuous service to your patients.

To draw up the plan one of our specialists will simply visit you to assess the buildings you have, the space available on site and any vehicle access requirements - this will take approximately 60 minutes.

We will then provide a free report detailing how interim buildings could be deployed to replace damaged buildings and mitigate the impact of a disaster.

Dont forget it can take up to 12 weeks to be granted planning permission, so get us involved early to ensure you have the additional space you need, when you need it.

Don't just take our word for it, see what our customers say:

“Speed was the principal reason for using a modular solution for the building. The finished building is very impressive. It provides a good patient environment both for children in the Children’s Department and for adults in the Elective Care Centre and the new surgical ward. It addresses the issues of patient privacy and dignity, and we are pleased with the ambience, feel, space and quiet.”

Nick Chatten, Director of Corporate Development, Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust

"The Overton Unit provides step down care for patients who no longer require the high level of acute care provided in hospital, but are awaiting a care package that will enable them to return home. Opening the unit has enabled us to release space on our acute care wards for very sick patients when they need to be admitted to hospital. I’d like to say a big thank you and well done to everyone who worked hard to ensure that the unit was open in time for the busy winter period."

Alex Whitfield, Chief Executive, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
