Portakabin Delivers 40,000m2 of Accomodation in Just 8 Weeks

For the last three consecutive years, Portakabin has successfully delivered approximately 40,000m2 of modular accommodation across the UK, including 110 education projects, in just eight weeks over the peak period for school building work. 

This scale of work on simultaneous multiple sites – and delivered on time and on budget – demonstrates the unrivalled capabilities and resources of Portakabin.

“Schools, colleges and universities face a major challenge when they need to use the summer holiday season to carry out major building works or expand their facilities”, said Mike Williams, General Manager of Portakabin Hire.

“Whilst work during this period will avoid any disruption to teaching, it is also precisely when demand for building suppliers and contractors is at its peak, which can lead to supply issues – or worse, buildings delivered late and over budget. Portakabin, however, is the only modular specialist to commit to delivery on time and on budget.  This combined with our long track record in the education sector and our network of 50 hire centres across the UK, means that we have the capacity, expertise and resources to deliver every project as specified, even during the very busiest peak season.”

Portakabin has provided interim buildings for a number of Building Schools for the Future projects including schemes at Lea Manor School in Luton working with Wates Construction, as well as projects in Harrow, Haringey and Brixton.

Portakabin also completed two challenging projects after schools were devastated by fire.   In just 10 weeks, Portakabin built an entire 6,000m2 interim school for 800 pupils and staff at Campsmount School in Doncaster.
