When you buy a modular or portable building from Portakabin Allspace you are investing in a high-quality asset that’s constructed to permanent building standards. Your entire building project will be completed up to 50% faster than if you chose a traditionally constructed building. You can even buy everything you need to complete your building from Portakabin Allspace. That includes everything from furniture and air-conditioning systems to access ramps and alarm systems. What’s more, a modular building can easily be reconfigured or even relocated if your requirements change in future.
Why buy a building from Portakabin Allspace?
1. Buildings meet permanent building standards
British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification confirms that the steel structure of your Portakabin building will provide a minimum life of 60 years and the external envelope and internal finishes will give you a design life of 60 years. Local Authority Building Control (LABC) certification confirms compliance with all relevant Building Regulations and Building Standards. All new buildings are also covered by the Portakabin 5-year product warranty and 30-year structural warranty package. The design features and optional extras available mean that your Portakabin building can even be designed to look just like a traditionally constructed one.
2. On time, on budget… our promise
The Portakabin Allspace Customer Charter contains the promise that your building project will be completed on time and on budget. In the unlikely event that we ever fail to do this, we’ll give you an additional 12 months’ product warranty on your building.3 However, you'll be reassured to know that we have a track record of delivering 99.7% of projects on time and on budget.1 That compares very favourably with an average of just 45% completed on time and 63% on budget for the traditional construction industry.2
3. Buildings completed up to 50% faster than traditional construction projects
Modular methods of construction enable your building to be finished up to 50% faster than using traditional methods of site-based construction.4 And because buildings are fabricated off-site in our factory, the on-site installation phase is much faster, cleaner, safer and less disruptive than traditional construction work.
4. Complete one-stop shop
When you buy a building from Portakabin Allspace you can leave everything to us – from building design and planning permission applications through to delivering and installing your building and fitting it out with everything you need. That gives you just one supplier to deal with – simplifying the project for you and ensuring every aspect of the work is carefully coordinated to deliver an efficient build programme.
5. Future flexibility
Modular buildings can easily be extended, reduced, reconfigured or even relocated, with the minimum of fuss – to meet your changing requirements.
6. Supplier you can rely on
When you choose Portakabin Allspace you can be sure we’ll be here for the long term – to support you long after your building is completed. The Portakabin Group has a top credit score of 1 from Dun and Bradstreet, putting us among the top 15% of UK companies for financial stability – so we're not going to disappear overnight.

"We cannot speak highly enough of the Portakabin team. They worked at breakneck speed to get our school up and running again. The quality and finish of the buildings, how they have been set up and organised and the size of the classrooms is all excellent. It has surpassed all our expectations."Andrew Sprakes, Headteacher, Campsmount College
“Portakabin Allspace had recently been in touch with us to make us aware of their hospital ward and bedroom accommodation. In consultation with them we decided that the best solution during our refurbishment works would be to provide a full interim ward for 20 residents. This would enable us to clear an entire floor at a time for refurbishment, with all residents from that floor accommodated in the interim Portakabin building during the works. We visited an existing ward building provided by Portakabin Allspace at a nearby hospital and were very impressed by the quality of facilities it offered.”Paula O'Halloran, General Manager, Cahercalla Nursing Home
