Refurbished portable cabins are an excellent option for businesses looking to revitalise their workspace. Whether your business requires corporate office space, engaging classrooms, or hygienic clinics, a second-hand portable cabin could be the perfect solution.

Your working environment is a crucial part of business productivity. An effective working environment is somewhere your staff feel comfortable and motivated. It should also be somewhere you are proud for your clients to visit. 

Have an office that reflects your company

Your company values and brand identity set you apart from your competitors. Think about what makes your company the best in the business. What are your values, and does your office reflect this?

Collaborative: Open-plan offices can encourage collaboration among employees. Flexible workspaces such as these allow the sharing of ideas which improves creativity. This creative environment empowers employees, giving them a sense of pride and also makes your business more attractive to new talent. 

Confidentiality: If your business values privacy and confidentiality, portable cabins can reflect this. With bespoke options, your space can include small, medium or large office areas for client meetings, reinforcing your company’s professionalism and trustworthiness. 

Employee-centred: Your employees are at the forefront of your business. Providing amenities in your office, such as break out or quiet spaces, reflects a commitment to employee health and mental well-being.

Inclusivity: Providing a space which includes accessible facilities for employees and clients alike demonstrates that your business is welcoming and diverse.

Consistency: You have worked hard to create your brand. Refurbishing used portable cabins allows you to include elements of your brand, such as logos and colours, in the design of your office -both inside and outside the building.

Portable Cabin uses in other sectors 

Not all workspaces require corporate office buildings. Businesses vary, as do their needs. Luckily, portable cabins are incredibly versatile and can revitalise businesses in various sectors. Here are some sectors that have chosen to use portable cabins:

Healthcare: Portable cabins can be used for an array of spaces in the healthcare sector, including clinics for general check-ups, vaccination centres, blood donation units, and to expand the capacity of hospitals.

Education: Portable cabins can form bespoke classrooms, create a high-quality learning environment for students, and be functional workspaces for teachers.

Construction: Building site cabins can provide workers with a warm, dry space to carry out their roles.

Health and Leisure: Portable cabins provide shower and changing room facilities in the health and leisure sector. 

Retail: Portable cabins can offer small businesses an affordable space on the high street or be used for pop-up shops.

Eco-conscious businesses

Portable cabins are already a greener option than traditional buildings; purchasing a used portable cabin takes sustainability further. Your company can give new life to a second-hand portable cabin and customise it to adhere to your business and revitalise your workspace.

Becoming an eco-conscious business improves your business’s image. Portable cabins are an excellent sustainable workspace option. 

Climate change is at the forefront of many debates; making your business more eco-friendly can help preserve the planet for future generations. A study by SmartestEnergy shows that 4 out of 5 people would be more likely to choose a brand with a positive approach to environmental sustainability. 

Portable cabins are constructed in a controlled factory environment before being delivered and installed at your site. This means building waste is minimised, and excess materials are reused, repurposed or recycled. 

Portable buildings also minimise transportation in the delivery process. Traditional building requires the transportation of numerous materials to the building site. Portable cabins, however, are already constructed before being transported. This reduces the number of vehicles needed during delivery, thus decreasing CO2 emissions.

Not only are portable cabins more sustainable during production but they are also built with energy-efficient materials. They contain high-quality insulation, HVAC systems and advanced sealing techniques. This is a huge advantage for your business as energy costs are cut down significantly.


Why buy used?

There are many other benefits, as well as increased sustainability, which come from purchasing used portable cabins.

Affordability: The first benefit is that second-hand portable cabins are much more affordable. They require significantly less capital outlay than a traditional building and are cheaper than new portable cabins. The cost of site preparation is also reduced due to the relatively simple installation process. Furthermore, portable cabins are energy efficient, which saves you money in the long run. 

Quick Installation: Installing a portable cabin is much faster than traditional building as the structure has already been manufactured in a factory. This means the cabin will quickly be available for use. The fast installation of portable cabins also minimises disturbance to surrounding areas, including the public and wildlife. 

Durability: Portable cabins are designed to be durable. When you buy a used portable building, this is still the case. During the refurbishment, any damage to the building can be repaired; this ensures you receive a high-quality, long-lasting cabin.

Upgrades: Despite being second-hand, used portable cabins can be refurbished with bespoke turnkey solutions to fit your specific needs. This can include anything from windows, doors and flooring to colour schemes which fit your brand.

Adaptability: Portable cabins can be redesigned to suit your changing needs.

A dynamic workspace allows a business to operate at an optimal level whilst also providing staff with a safe and motivational environment. Furthermore, the recent pandemic has changed people’s attitudes and approach to the workplace. Modular office buildings offer versatile workspaces that can be easily adapted to provide an engaging environment for staff and visitors.

Particularly in a post-pandemic world, the workplace has changed almost beyond recognition. People’s attitudes to being in the office have changed. Remote workers are more prevalent than before, and many businesses are now employing a hybrid working method. This new approach to working has affected how businesses and workers view being in the office.

Portable Building Sales provides businesses with modular office buildings to deliver motivational spaces for new employee expectations.

Staff collaborating in a modular office

Modular office buildings support a new way of working.

The flexibility of modular and portable office buildings can promote an open and productive working environment for diverse working styles. Businesses are learning to accommodate more remote and hybrid workers into their teams. With this new approach to working, companies need to review their office space and how that works for their staff and clients.

In a post-pandemic world, getting staff back into the office has been challenging. Some workers have found that entering the office environment again was a daunting expectation. By creating dynamic and welcoming spaces, businesses can make it easier for staff to transition back into office life.

Alternatively, many companies have adopted a hybrid working method with staff spending part of the week at home. Even if organisations have remote staff, providing space for those workers is still important. Remote staff will still need to visit the office for meetings and such.

For remote and hybrid workers, it is important to have co-working spaces that promote collaboration. Having open spaces for staff to work together helps rebuild many of the social connections that were lost during lockdowns. Whilst that was some time ago, many people still struggle to adjust to life back in the office. Modular offices can foster confidence in being back in the workplace.


How a flexible office improves staff motivation.

Flexibility is the key to providing a dynamic workspace, and they don’t come more flexible than modular buildings. Because of the way they are constructed, through a method of adjoining pods, or modules, modular buildings are highly customisable.

Modular buildings offer a highly bespoke approach that is unrivalled against its traditional build counterpart. When you design the space in your portable office building, walls can be configured to your needs. You can create open spaces alongside private areas for meeting rooms or conveniences.  

So, what are the benefits of creating a dynamic and productive office, and how can modular buildings help? We’ll look at why you should consider improving your office environment with a modular office.


  1. Improved employee engagement

Flexible workspaces that incorporate thoughtful and customisable design features go a long way to making employees feel valued. By utilising clever, quiet spaces and comfortable furnishing will enhance your staff’s ability to focus.


  1. Attract the best talent – and keep them!

By using a combination of open spaces and up-to-date features promotes an environment of collaboration. This attention to detail makes employees feel valued. Not only that but when new talent walks into your office, you’ll be making a great first impression.


  1. Improved collaboration

A dynamic workspace will encourage collaboration as well as quiet focus areas. Balance is key to cultivating a productive environment. Many employees work differently. Allowing flexible workspaces for different working styles will get the most out of your employees.


  1. Improved creativity

The best results come from people sharing ideas. By bringing staff together in a light and airy space gives employees the freedom to create. Offices can do a lot to encourage productive conversation.


  1. Increased productivity

To increase productivity in your organisation, you need to increase motivation. By forcing employees to work in drab, lifeless boxes will not encourage motivation in your workforce. Solid walls and dark colours can make staff feel oppressed and closed off. By opening up spaces and using a lighter colour palette will leave your team feeling uplifted and inspired.


  1. Utilise your space

With the introduction of remote and hybrid workers, you may find some spaces not being used as frequently. With the flexibility of modular buildings, you can create space for your remote and hybrid workers. You can achieve this without compromising the space for the permanent office staff. Modular buildings also have the flexibility to incorporate innovative storage spaces to make the most of the space available.


  1. Enhanced company culture.

Finally, by considering all of these points, your business can take steps to improve the culture within your organisation. A productive, motivated and collaborative workforce will achieve their goals in a supportive environment. These are all the ingredients to helping your business reach its goals with a happy workforce. Keeping your staff happy not only makes your business money but also saves your company money.
