Modular Building and Jackleg Cabin

Instead of being fixed in place, a movable, demountable, or portable structure can be moved. As a result, portable cabins are a more manageable kind of transportable building. In addition, portable cabins are customized prefabricated structures designed for specific uses, such as site offices, portable restrooms, storage containers, security cabins, etc. As a result, the cost of porta cabins is lower than that of traditional setups. They also give flexible options for those who require short-term housing. There are two types of cabin shells we will explain to you below.

Modular Building
A modular building is constructed from two or more individual modules or bays. Each module is a portable cabin with only two end walls that are then connected. This gives a larger building without many internal divisions, thus providing a larger and more efficient open-plan space internally. Each module can still be craned in by a lorry, and when each module or bay is sited, they will have the electrical bay-to-bay and weather-sealing joints completed. All the individual modules must be completed before you can use the building. Modular construction can be double or triple-stacked, as it has more open-plan internal space than, e.g., double, stacked portable cabins, interior staircases, and lifts can be fitted to give a more effective working environment.

Jackleg cabins
This is a prevalent type of portable cabin with extendable legs visible on the cabin’s exterior. This is the type of cabin we mainly supply in both new build and second-hand or used. Modern jackleg cabins are usually externally clad in plastisol steel on the exterior, giving many years of virtually free maintenance ownership, unlike the older timber textured houses needing repainting periodically.

The time-consuming part does not include building mobile office buildings. The lengthy project is frequently caused by the licensing and permit procedures.
