The way that we work continues to adapt and evolve to meet the demands of advancing technology and changing consumer expectations. This calls for our workspaces to be more flexible and efficient than ever before.

Furthermore, since the pandemic, it has become much easier and more usual for employees to work remotely, either on a full-time or part-time basis. All this means that there is less call for costly and high-maintenance bricks and mortar workplaces, and an increased demand for more flexible options such as portable office cabins.

Here’s a look at some of the many advantages of this solution and why it is becoming a popular choice for businesses throughout the UK.

Mobility and adaptability

There is an increasing demand for temporary office spaces, whether for construction sites, startups, or seasonal or fixed-term work projects. Portable cabins are a time and cost effective option, reducing the time, effort and expense required in sourcing rental buildings.

Portable buildings can be acquired with little trouble and installed on almost any suitable flat surface.

Quick and easy installation

Time is often of the essence when temporary accommodation is required. Portable buildings can be assembled within a matter of days or even hours to create a ready-to-use workspace, with minimal disruption to the surrounding environment. Similarly, when they are no longer required, they can be easily disassembled and sold or relocated.

Tailored workspaces

It is a common misconception that portable buildings are just a basic shell with a limited range of uses. In fact, they are highly adaptable and can be customised to suit a wide range of purposes. For example, they can be branded with external and internal fittings and finishes to reflect a business identity, or integrated with technology such as digital screens.

They are versatile spaces that can do much more than accommodate desks, chairs, and computers. For example, adjacent cabins or sections within a larger cabin can be used to provide toilet and washing facilities, kitchen areas, meeting rooms, educational centres, medical rooms, or breakout areas.


Portable buildings can easily be extended or downsized through the addition or removal of extra storeys or linked adjacent structures. This allows a business to quickly respond to fluctuating demands in workloads or staffing requirements, without paying for unnecessary office space or having to turn work down due to lack of resources.

Cost and energy efficiency

The cost of buying or hiring a portable cabin is often a fraction of the cost of renting office space and certainly a much cheaper option than buying or constructing a permanent building. Modular buildings were once considered to be difficult to heat, but modern standards of construction mean that this is no longer the case.

Portable buildings are manufactured with high-quality insulating materials that help to regulate the temperature all year round. They are also energy efficient and cost effective to heat in winter, creating a comfortable working environment that will boost productivity and morale amongst the workforce.
