New video from Portakabin

09 June 2011

Portakabin, UK modular building specialist, has launched a video as part of its campaign to change the perception of modular buildings and to demonstrate just what is possible with this 'innovative and flexible' approach to providing interim accommodation

This latest video, which can be viewed online at, illustrates how buildings can be provided to manufacturing and commercial organisations that:

 Can easily accommodate more than 1,000 staff

 Are manufactured to permanent building standards and in line with the latest Building Regulations

 Feature floor to ceiling glazing to maximise natural light for an attractive and productive working environment

 Use a technically advanced building system with no internal columns for ease of space planning

 Are available in single and multi-storey configurations to meet specific project requirements.

Commenting on this latest initiative, Mike Williams, General Manager of Portakabin Hire, said, “Our research has shown that many organisations, particularly in the manufacturing and commercial sectors, are just not aware of how far modular buildings have come in recent years and of the scale, design flexibility and quality of the office environments that are now available – and for interim as well as permanent use.”
