Portable Cabins

Springfield are first class and I can’t fault them! They were on budget, stuck to deadlines, followed school procedures, were clean and tidy and they listened to what we wanted.

Michael Clark, Stratford Upon Avon

What Is A Portable Cabin?

Portable cabins are self-contained buildings, built off-site, making them an ideal way to expand your business or school, particularly when there are time or budget constraints. They can be quickly installed and are more affordable than traditional builds.

We offer a range of versatile portable cabins which are designed by our experienced team, based on what you need and built by our time-served craftsmen in our 40,000 sq. ft ISO-approved workshop. The cabin is then delivered to your site for immediate use.

Why Choose A Portable Cabin From Springfield?

With our off-site techniques, developed over 45 years in business, our portable cabins can be manufactured at a faster and cheaper rate, and delivered much more quickly than if you were to use traditional methods. We pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive, bespoke service to ensure your portable cabin meets your needs exactly, with no fuss or mess.

Our experienced designers offer a huge range of choice, from the layout to the finishes of your cabin. Whether it’s timber cladding or circular windows, our cabins are manufactured to suit your needs – they can even be made to fit in with the existing aesthetics of a current building to match your corporate style.
Our cabins can also be added to or changed, as and when necessary, to accommodate your changing circumstances. So, if you’re short on time or budget, we can work within those realms now and can expand on them in the future.

Each client is assigned a project manager from their initial call with us. This manager will continue to oversee the project for the entire process, from initial design to final installation – a complete, turn-key service.

We know everyone has different requirements as well as different budgets, and that’s why we work hard to ensure we offer the solution you’re looking for.

Hiring A Portable Cabin

We offer a bespoke hiring solution for all of our clients. Choosing from either our current stock or, dependent on length of term, a new, bespoke building, we accommodate a flexible hiring scheme. We offer two primary types of contracts:

  • a client-based contract where you decide on the contract period, anywhere between three months and five years, with a rental fee fixed for its duration
  • an open-ended contract with no fixed length

Both contracts provide an affordable option for clients who find themselves on a tight budget or simply see greater benefit in hiring a cabin rather than buying one outright. Find out more about our hiring option here.

Buying A Portable Cabin

Purchasing a portable cabin from Springfield offers a permanent, cost-effective solution for any company. Clients can either choose from our existing stock of buildings, or better still take advantage of our truly client-focussed, ‘design your own building’ service. We will provide a dedicated project manager to work with you to design your building, your way!

Whether you choose a building from our fleet, or a newly designed one, all of our cabins can be repurposed to meet your exact needs offering a fantastic, bespoke solution. Find out more about our buying option here.

Why Choose Springfield?

Hiring or purchasing a modular building can be a difficult and daunting process. But it doesn’t have to be. We can offer a full turnkey package, whereby your project manager will aid in completing a range of tasks, including planning permission approval, building control approval and full groundwork packages. We can do as little or a much as you require.

Buildings To Hire

Alongside our bespoke manufacturing service, we also offer our clients the option to hire our modular sports buildings.

Our hiring option is tailor-made for each of our clients. This means they can choose between designing a new building or an existing building from our
fleet. We also offer clients a tailored leasing contract to ensure we can meet
any budget and any special requirements.

Why Hire/Buy A Portable Cabin From Springfield?

As well as being able to work with you to create a bespoke building specifically for hire, we also have a vast range of buildings in stock and ready to go now. This means that your temporary portable building can be delivered within days of your order, if that is what you need. Our offsite construction methods mean we are not affected by the weather and can produce multiple components of a building simultaneously. This results in your building costing a fraction of the price of a traditional build and it can be delivered in record time.

The process of hiring a portable building from Springfield couldn’t be smoother. A dedicated project manager will see your order through from start to finish. Whatever your building needs, your dedicated project manager can provide you with a wide variety of options in terms of building types and finishes, regardless of whether you are looking to hire or purchase.

When it comes to modular buildings, we can provide what you want, how you want it, when you want it. You can choose to hire a building at whatever level of finesse suits your requirements. Portable cabins are not the only building type we offer here at Springfield. Alongside our flagship cabins, we also specialise in constructing modular, jackleg, prefabricated and two storey buildings.

Fast turnaround time does not mean a loss of quality. Quality is our number one goal, and we endeavour to deliver a unit that is 100% right for your business – with all the advantages of off-site production and no on-site building work necessary. We want the end result to be that you have hired a complete, fully fitted out, comfortable and secure building from Springfield. Just some of the finishes we can provide include bespoke internal fittings dependent on your sector and the building usage, climate-control systems, alarm systems and tailored features and facilities to comply with any standards associated with your building requirements.

With over 50 years trading, we’re not going to disappear overnight and are well-versed in the unique components each building needs. Rest assured that Springfield will see your building hire project through, with continual support throughout your hire period. Any maintenance or servicing requirements will be taken care of by Springfield, to ensure that your building delivers optimum performance throughout your hire contract.

One of the brilliant things about hiring a modular building is that your building can be extended, reconfigured or relocated with ease. Hiring a portable building can satisfy both a short-term need, with a hiring period of at least three months, or a long-term need with the option to hire a building for up to 20 years.
