When you need additional space on site, a portable building can provide the perfect solution. Here are 5 different ways they could benefit you.

Every business needs additional space now and again, especially those with demanding on site requirements for storage, resources and staff. Maybe you need a new warehouse to house valuable equipment, an onsite facility where staff can eat, or maybe you simply need additional office space for people to work.

Finding an empty building to meet your requirements isn’t always easy, and there are plenty of costs and headaches to consider when it comes to traditional construction. So, before you start thinking about relocating to larger premises, here are 5 key reasons you ought to consider a portable building instead.

Benefits of a portable building on site

Speedy construction

One of the biggest hassles with traditional construction is the time it takes to finally get the structure ready for use. With most of the constructions taking place in the factory, a portable building is a lot quicker to put together — which certainly puts the pressure off when you require additional space quickly. Some kinds of portable buildings (specifically temporary buildings) don’t require foundations to be laid first and are even quicker to erect.

Cost effective

Jumping on from our last point — the quicker construction time of a portable building typically leads to lower costs. There are fewer processes to building a portable building compared to a traditional build, and therefore fewer expenses. This makes it an ideal solution for businesses operating on a tight budget.

Reusable / relocatable

Speaking of costs… the flexible nature of a portable building can give you a lot more mileage for your buck. They can be easily reconfigured to suit most purposes and are designed for transportation. Even if you’re moving across the country, a portable building serving as a temporary office at one end can be easily outfitted to become a canteen at the other.


More and more businesses are growing conscious of their environmental responsibilities. Climate change is a major talking point these days, and we all need to demonstrate our efforts to help reduce our impact on the world around us. A portable building is typically more eco-friendly than most other types of construction because of their reduced waste in materials. Also, since construction time is much quicker, there is generally less pollution on the manufacturing process.

Absolute flexibility

One of the biggest advantages of using a portable building on site is the sheer flexibility on offer. Depending on your operational requirements, a portable building can be fitted to spec — giving you exactly what you need for less.

Of course, these are just a few of the reason why you should consider
a portable building on your site. If you’d like to know more, then get in touch with the team at RBS. We have more than 20 years of experience helping businesses in every sector with fast, reliable and flexible solutions to meet their bespoke needs.
