Who Uses Portable Cabins?


When people think of portable cabins, their first thought is usually of temporary classrooms in schools and colleges. Whilst it is true that this is a key area for their use, there are many other more varied applications of the modular building. In addition, now that people are recognising the availability and benefits of used portable cabins, it seems likely that their applications will diversify even more. Portable Cabins for sale

One area which has seen widespread use of portable cabins is that of business. Temporary offices are often required on sites which are perhaps medium term length but not permanent, such as housing developments or other construction projects. A portable office is ideal for site leaders to use for discussions with clients and suppliers, for storing essential paperwork and providing a base for working each day. Their portability means that the office can be moved at the end of a contract and taken to the next if required, making it a cost effective solution. Modular buildings can be stacked vertically if required, giving extra space on the same footprint, as well as being fitted with heating or plumbing.

Inside a Portable CabinMarketing and sales teams have also been using modular buildings for some time, creating an inviting space for meeting with customers on location, like on holiday home parks or at outdoor pursuits centres. The full customisation options mean they can have cladding applied or a veranda area to make for a unique, appealing space.

More unusual are the instances in which portable cabins are used as a club house and changing rooms, but this too is an ideal situation. Easily fitted with plumbing, giving hot water and showers as well as toilets and sinks, modular spaces can easily be partitioned to create small spaces within the module. The installation process is easy and ideally suited to areas which aren’t favourable for standard brick built properties, and many sports fields are not designated for building by the council where they might be allowed to install a modular portable cabin structure. Sports teams benefit from having somewhere to store their kit and at which to welcome other squads.

Others have turned their modular portable cabin into cafes, kitchens and shops. Using cladding on the exterior walls transforms the appearance of the cabin, making it an attractive café option, whilst catering facilities can easily be installed into the modular units. Pop up cafes and ‘pop up shops’ are a new trend seeing big growth, and portable cabins are helping many people to join the movement.
