Hospice expands care provision with modular building system from Portakabin


As Woking and Sam Beare Hospice continues to provide outstanding palliative care to those most in need, the team at offsite specialist Portakabin were able to turn around a functional and modern work space in the midst of a large scale development for some of the charity’s most-needed services.

Completed in mid-2017, the building has become an essential part of the hospice facility.

Following a decision in 2014 to reconfigure Woking and Sam Beare Hospices, plans for a brand new state-of-the-art facility in Goldsworth Park in Woking, Surrey started to take shape. Portakabin, the UK’s market leader in offsite, modular solutions was called in by the project team to design and manufacture an office administration block which could be installed whilst building work continued on site.

The beauty of a building constructed entirely offsite allows each module to be craned in independently, meaning the team at Woking and Sam Beare Hospice could continue to operate as normal whilst both the traditional and modular development grew around them.

The Portakabin building is home to the Hospice’s specialist support service teams; marketing, human resources, finance and the senior leadership team. Offices, open plan desk space, meeting rooms, welfare facilities and breakout areas are contained within a three storey Portakabin building. Constructed using a modular open-plan layout; the building provides valuable administrative support to the busy hospice as it continues to provide specialised end of life care and support to the local community, their families, friends and carers.

Graeme Robinson, Director and General Manager for Portakabin Refurbished comments: “As an independent charity, the hospice needed a building that provided value for money as well the flexibility to integrate into the development’s already busy programme. A solution from Portakabin Refurbished provides exactly that, as well as the outstanding and reliable quality of our design, build and install.

“It was an amazing project to be part of. The hospice is well known locally for all the fantastic services it provides so our team were delighted to have been able to be part of it.”

Specification and design was completed over a six week period in partnership with Rutland Project Management with the manufacture and construction of the modules being undertaken at the Portakabin facility in Brandesburton. Installed with much of the internal fit-out already complete, the building was finished with an eye-catching exterior cedar detail, helping it seamlessly integrate with the new-build traditional structure beside it.

Jayne Cooper, CEO Woking and Sam Beare Hospices said, “For the first time our support teams are based at the same site as the hospice building enabling us to work closely with our Clinical colleagues helping us to raise funds and awareness vital for the continuation of our care to the community.”
