Portable Facilities

What we do

Helping you provide outstanding learning environments by upgrading or supplementing your facilities to incorporate new or refurbished portable university buildings.

Suitable as temporary, semi-permanent or permanent student accommodation, our modular classrooms are a highly cost-effective and resilient solution to many of the challenges facing the education sector today.

Mobile buildings are broadly:

  • Half the cost of traditional build
  • 70% quicker construction time
  • Custom built to meet your specific requirements
  • Delivered to university campus ready to use
  • Higher insulation for lower energy bills
  • Low environmental impact

Mobile, modular classrooms are the perfect solution for growing student numbers in universities, and can also be used to efficiently create specialist learning environments for subjects as diverse as science, music, dance, drama and food technology.

Portable buildings can also be used to create extra living accommodation for staff or students while existing housing is refurbished or as a longer term or even permanent solution.

About us

From our base in leafy Hampshire, Portable Facilities has been supplying modular cabins and buildings to a wide range of customers, including universities, since 2005. Past projects range from a single refurbished modular unit to a brand new bespoke or multi-storey complex - so no job is too big or too small for the Portable Facilities team.

We understand the demands of the education sector and the challenge of stretched resources, and we offer a full, turnkey service to help department heads, school governors, facilities managers and school business managers navigate the complex legislation and regulations right through to project delivery.

Our full service package is tailored to cover as much or as little support from us as you need, from planning permission, site preparation, groundworks, Building Regulations, interior fit out, exterior cladding, logistics, transportation, crane hire and full site installation right through to regular on-going maintenance.

Our portable, modular classrooms and educational buildings are constructed from a steel frame in our quality-controlled production facility in Hampshire, with installation typically taking only 1 or 2 days of work onsite, keeping staff and student disruption to a minimum.

With years of experience in the construction, transportation and installation of portable, modular classroom buildings, and enjoying a well-deserved reputation for providing a flexible and highly efficient service, were confident we can help transform your shortage of space into a cost-efficient portable classroom solution.

All Portable Facilities' staff are fully trained and insured to maintain our high standards of health and safety.
