Portable Office Cabins: Perfect For Startups or Expansions

If you’re an entrepreneur starting a business from scratch with a need for a physical location, or an established outfit looking to expand your existing footprint – your answer may not be in ‘bricks and mortar’. In this article, we will delve more into portable cabins and what makes them perfect as offices and boardrooms.

What is a portable cabin?

Portable cabins are moveable, self-contained buildings designed and built off-site, which are ready for use on delivery. This means they offer far less site disruption and are more cost-effective than traditional construction builds. These stand-alone cabins are created in our ISO-approved workshop, allowing them to be customised to meet the individual needs of your business. For more, check out our article on the difference between portable, modular and jackleg buildings.

Benefits of choosing portable cabins

  • Speed of project delivery – A key advantage of being built off-site is the speed of delivery of your project. Portable cabins can be built and put in place far sooner than traditional construction builds. This is down to a multitude of factors, including less weather disruption, less on-site construction time and that they are delivered ready to use. Being available in a fraction of the time, portable cabins are perfect for entrepreneurs looking to establish their first physical presence or those businesses trying to expand at pace.
  • Cost-effective – Being made off-site in a controlled warehouse environment means that our self-contained portable cabins can be built in an extremely cost-effective manner. Especially when compared to traditional construction, portable cabins are far more affordable and therefore lend themselves perfectly to startups or businesses looking to expand in a lean way. Plus you can move them down the line to meet your business circumstances too.
  • Customisation – At Springfield, our bespoke construction service allows you to fully customise your portable cabin. With a wide variety of finishes available, from windows to roofing and external cladding to interior finishes, we’ll work with you to ensure your building specification achieves the desired aesthetic, perfect to represent your business. You can also choose two-storey portable buildings to gain further office space.
  • Buy or Hire – You can choose to buy a completely bespoke portable cabin, browse a selection of pre-made and second-hand cabins, and alternatively, it’s easy to hire a portable cabin too!

Don’t forget, it’s not just portable office cabins – Springfield’s portable buildings can be used for a multitude of business needs.
