portable office

Having suitable office facilities is critical to the success of your business. There are many reasons why your organisation might need to consider new office space. For example, you may find that the time has come to expand your business or relocate. If so, you’ll need to think about the office space within your organisation, and a portable building will prove to be a great choice.

Modular buildings are pre-fabricated off-site in our factory setting and then transported to your site when complete. There are many reasons why portable buildings are an excellent option for anyone looking for new premises or to expand an existing building.

The benefits of using portable buildings for your new office

If you haven’t considered using modular buildings for your business, let us run through some of the benefits of the modular option.

Flexibility – when it comes to design and functionality, you’d be hard-pressed to find a higher level of customisation than with a portable office cabin. You can customise everything from the layout to the size and even the features within the space to completely suit your specific needs. For example, you can include partitions to create separate offices or opt for a completely open-plan space. You can develop break-out areas and larger rooms for collaborative projects. The flexibility doesn’t end once you’ve finished designing your space. If, after time, you find that your needs have changed, you can expand or reconfigure the space to suit your changing needs.

Affordability – modular buildings are also a great choice if you are looking to save money or make your budget stretch further. The costs of modular construction can be up to 50% less than that of a traditional build because they are constructed off-site in our factory setting, which means that the building process is very much streamlined. In addition, as the building process only uses the necessary materials, there is less waste and less energy consumption, which you are not paying for in the bottom line. This also means that the modular building process is more environmentally friendly.

Speed of construction – Not only are modular buildings cheaper than traditional buildings but they are also constructed in a fraction of the time. Another benefit of their construction taking place off-site and in a factory facility is that external factors like the weather do not affect the build. Adverse weather conditions can grind a traditional build to a halt, whereas work can continue on a modular build. This method also means fewer groundworks are required on your site, so time is saved on building foundations and other traditional building processes.

Ease of installation – We’ve established that a significant part of the construction for a portable building takes place in our factory. This means once the building is ready to go and the ground has been prepared on your site, your new office can be transported to your site and installed in a matter of days. Also, the disruption is significantly reduced because of the minimal groundwork required on your site. This is particularly beneficial if you add a modular building to an existing working site.

Portability – Another benefit of modular buildings is how easily they move. So, if your needs change or you decide to relocate, you can take your modular building with you. They also have the flexibility to be added to and expanded. The design of modular buildings means they can be easily disassembled and reassembled. This greatly benefits businesses that move frequently and only need office space on a particular site temporarily. You can save time and money by quickly moving your building from one location to another when required. Just contact us, and we can make arrangements.

Bespoke spaces promote greater efficiency.

It is important to provide your staff with a working space that is efficient and has all the space they need to complete their day-to-day work effectively. Modular buildings offer clean, contemporary spaces with all the facilities that a modern office needs, including:

  • Power points where you need them.
  • Audio-visual equipment.
  • Washroom facilities.
  • Kitchen areas.
  • Break-out areas.

Providing your staff with adequate facilities is essential to increasing motivation and productivity. The bespoke nature of portable buildings means you can completely customise the office to include all the features you need.

You can be in control of your space. At the start of your project, the team at Portable Building Sales will discuss your full requirements. Then, our design team will work to your specifications, and you can collaborate with them to get the space just how you want it.


Consider a used portable office.

Portable Building Sales have a wide range of modular buildings available to order immediately. We also have pre-owned buildings that can be fully refurbished to your requirements to help your budget stretch a little further, with savings of up to 40% compared to new.

As well as the cost-savings, purchasing a used portable cabin has significant environmental benefits. Whilst modular buildings are a great environmentally friendly option for your office needs anyway, a used building goes a step further as you are prolonging the life of a previously used building.


Hiring a portable office.

If you only need a portable office for a short period of time, you could consider hiring a modular building from Portable Building Sales. For example, maybe you need to move your office on a temporary basis while the renovations of another building take place. Or your work is a short-term project. Hiring a portable office gives you the flexibility to pay for the space for as long as you need it.
