Portakabin (Site Accommodation)

Tell us about yourself

Portakabin has pioneered modular construction for the past 50 years, delivering bespoke buildings to fulfil almost any application, site and design.

The International Head Office and manufacturing site is based in York, but Portakabin has a variety of Hire and Visitor Centres across the UK, Ireland and continental Europe to suit a variety of client requirements. Portakabin (Site Accommodation) is delivering the latest accommodation solutions for the construction industry

Our catchment area in Aylesbury is classed as North West London, but also includes Oxford, Reading, Harpenden, St. Albans and just south of Northampton.

What does that entail?

We offer two types of innovative modular buildings: a self-contained unit and a larger modular unit that fit together on any site to create large, multi-room buildings.

Once the buildings are manufactured in our factory in York, they are delivered to Westcott for a full internal fit out by our skilled technicians. On-site, we have 10 full-time employees, working in business development, administrative support, and project coordination.

Why Westcott?

After outgrowing our previous depot, we looked for available space where we could build a state-of-the-art facility to meet our business needs. Westcott offered us something from scratch that could be developed into a suitable operational depot.

We have just over four acres - nearly twice the size of what we had previously. The key factor is the space. We’ve been able to lay out the yard efficiently to the benefit of the business. The space we have on site to store and work on our buildings is fantastic.

The security here is excellent. The gates are manned 24/7.

What are your future plans?

Now we’ve got the space, we hope to utilise it in ways that make us more efficient at meeting our customers’ needs. As a division we are always looking to grow, so the aim is to supply even higher quality buildings and with a quicker lead time.

What’s your message to other Westcott businesses?

We are keen to support other businesses in the Westcott community. We already work with Bucks Recycling and have worked with Reaction Engines. If anybody on WVP needs any type of accommodation in the future, or wants to find out more, please come and see what we can do.
