Customised ‘to buy’ solutions

We are experienced in meeting demanding deadlines, whilst tailoring buildings to suit even the most complex design, engineering and sustainability requests. Our service is a fast, portable and cost effective alternative to permanent builds, however our buildings are made to last just as long.  Solutions range from purpose built temporary buildings or permanent use modular facilities.

Superior engineering and design

We’ve invested heavily in maintaining leading design and engineering capabilities to build better, stronger and more reliable transportable buildings that exceed compliance levels for structural integrity, energy efficiency and safety.

End-to-end service

At Portacom Building Solutions we have a team of experts to help design, engineer, manufacture, construct and install your complete accommodation, commercial or educational needs.  We’ve successfully helped hundreds of our clients with not only their building needs, but also the entire supporting infrastructure inside and outside that you would expect, from high spec kitchens and bathrooms to car parks, fencing and landscaping.

Quality control

Our modular buildings are factory built where quality materials and weather restrictions are managed with ease.  We use the best in fire retardant materials, including ‘XFlam’ insulation where extra fire resistance is required.  Our compliance knowledge and skills will ensure your build is a success.

Thinking green

Buildings are designed and constructed using sustainable processes and materials, with a number of additional customised options for our clients who wish for their new facilities to be kind on the environment or lower their running costs.  For example, all structural insulated panels of our buildings use a durable, low maintenance product with prefinished, attractive colour steel on internal and external surfaces. A polystyrene core provides extremely efficient insulation.

Speed of service

We have complete control over the building process and we talk weeks, not months, when it comes to completion dates. Our buildings are engineered to be ready to use when they are delivered to your site.
