Just What Can Portable Buildings Be Used For?

Just What Can Portable Buildings Be Used For?

Choosing portable, jackleg, prefabricated and modular buildings for your new space has increasingly attractive flexibility and all the benefits of a traditional build, at a fraction of the cost and time. They are also versatile enough to be used for just about anything across a wide range of sectors and if you are picturing the horrible old grey or green units of old, think again. Not only can they prove suitable for many applications they can also be manufactured to reflect your precise needs, designed to be aesthetically pleasing, built off-site and in most cases installed in a day.

What Could You Use A Modular Building For? 

We often state that we sell here at Springfield is S P A C E and then just wrap great buildings around it.

So, I think the answer to the question is just about anything!

We list below just a few of the uses our buildings have been used for in recent months but the fact is the only limit on possibilities is your imagination. Frankly, you only need to ask us, we will build it – you are in charge.

It may be that you have a community centre that hosts a variety of events and need flexible space to accommodate yoga classes, council meetings, celebrations, or sporting activities – all very different needs but we’ll show you how we can make it all work.

Maybe you run a school and need space for extra-curricular activity – after school clubs, nursery classes, intervention rooms or just extra space. Whatever your requirements, do not hesitate to discuss them with us and we will do our best to shape a building absolutely fit for purpose and designed to your spec.

What Can Springfield Modular Buildings Be Used For?

Portable buildings and modular builds can, as mentioned, sometimes be viewed as dull old grey boxes that we all remember from our school days. However, Springfield have led the sector in innovation, particularly in terms of internal and external finishes, and as well as for options in classrooms, such as ant-scald taps, finger guards on windows & doors plus many more. They really are exceptionally flexible and increasingly used for many other purposes, including, but certainly not limited to:

  • Offices
  • Community centre’s
  • Doctor’s and Dentist’s surgeries
  • NHS waiting rooms
  • Amenity facilities
  • Boardrooms
  • Car hire offices
  • Gatehouses
  • Restrooms/wetrooms
  • Bird watching dens
  • Premiership football club facilities
  • Crown bowling clubs
  • Leisure blocks
  • Libraries
  • IT suites
  • Welfare blocks
  • Security buildings

And, since COVID19:

  • Handwashing facilities
  • Testing centres
  • Segregation, isolation and screening units and infection control rooms

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at just some of the portable buildings we have previously successfully delivered, via our case studiestestimonials and brochure. You can also get an idea of internal and external finishes that could be provided, here.

The Springfield Process

The length of your new building process will be entirely dependent on whether you are hiring or buying, what type of building you need, if you want a bespoke new build or something from our existing stock and when you realistically need it by – but these are all factors that we can discuss with you.

If you are unsure about the type of facility you need or want to have a friendly discussion about your potential new space, get in contact with our expert team for a friendly discussion.

Give us a call on 01744 851 958, fill out our contact form or request a call back.
