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.

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.
