Three Less Common Uses For Premium Portable Buildings

Portable buildings are widely used for convenient temporary spaces in the education, construction, and healthcare sector. Recently, modular buildings have provided a fast and safe solution to the RAAC concrete crisis that has forced some UK schools to close or relocate to new teaching venues.

Premium modular buildings are also being widely utilised in the NHS to create extra ward space or to provide mobile community health hubs. However, there are also many other ways that these versatile buildings are being used around the UK. Here are just a few examples to demonstrate the potential of these sustainable and affordable structures.

Data centres

Data centres house a lot of bulky high-performance equipment that needs to be kept in climate controlled environments. This can present a challenge, especially in older buildings where it may be difficult to locate a suitable storage space.

Therefore modular buildings provide an ideal solution, either as a stand alone unit or linked up to an existing structure. They can be specially designed to accommodate specialist equipment and will be delivered with electrics in place. The buildings can be in place within a matter of weeks, avoiding costly delays to the business’s day to day operations.

The buildings are constructed from high quality materials that are easy to maintain at an optimum temperature and will not be prone to dampness or overheating. They are cost effective when compared to traditional bricks and mortar buildings and require less energy. Reinforced anti-vandal units can be supplied to protect valuable and vital equipment.

Scientific laboratories

Traditional buildings are often unsuitable for laboratory space due to confined layouts and a lack of storage space. Businesses may require extra laboratory space at short notice for scientific or medical research, product development or for education and training. Modular buildings can provide spacious and hygienic work areas within a short timeframe.

Libraries and community centres

Many areas of the country have suffered from the loss of much-loved libraries and community centres over the past ten years, as austerity measures saw council budgets cut back to the bone. In some cases, an extension to an existing library may be required and a portable building is an ideal cost-effective alternative to a bricks and mortar structure.

Often costing just a fraction of a traditional building, modular buildings can be in place within a tight timescale and they provide flexible spaces that can be ready to use at point of delivery. If necessary, the buildings can be adjoined side by side or extended upwards by up to three storeys.

The community centre or village hall often also serves as a scout and guide hut, a youth club, a visitor centre or even a creche. They play an important role in social cohesion, but sadly they are often low down the list of budget priorities for local councils. A modular building is therefore an ideal low-cost and high quality solution.
