5 Uses For Large Portable Buildings

Portable buildings are self-contained, which is ideal for a number of reasons. From buying a newly built building to hiring a previously used building, there is no end to the possibilities when using a portable building. Springfield offers a selection of sizes and styles, as well as the option to design your own building, with bespoke finishing

Manufacturing portable buildings in our 40,000 square feet space gives Springfield the opportunity to produce much larger portable buildings than you may expect.


What can large portable buildings be used for?

1. Education

Portable buildings are not simply temporary classrooms, their versatility of portable buildings gives the option of being adapted for use to anything your school may require. Springfield can provide everything from classrooms and nurseries to bespoke buildings for so many other purposes – changing rooms, sports pavilions, SEN one-to-one units, art & craft centres, toilet blocks – we basically sell space and build the facilities you want around it. The only limit is your imagination.

Springfield has used their extensive experience with hundreds of schools around the UK to offer the option of a wide range of specialist safety features. These include anti-scald taps, finger guards on doors and windows, lighting which is scientifically proven to enhance learning, and electronically controlled roof skylights with automated ventilation management and rain sensors – if a safety enhancement you require is available we’ll fit it!

The healthcare industry is one of the fastest-growing, with a consistent need for updating equipment and expansion to their facilities. Portable buildings give the option of expansion with very little disruption to staff and patients, as well as having the ability to buy a building that has been created specifically to match requirements. 

The options for a large portable building in the healthcare sector are endless. We have manufactured buildings for GP surgeries which include space for a pharmacy, consulting rooms, waiting rooms, and dentistry. There is also an option for these buildings to be used for emergency services, providing training space, consultation rooms, waiting rooms, offices, and accommodation for on-call staff.
