Ten Popular Uses For Portable Buildings and Portable Cabins
We love to hear how customers use our products and have compiled a list of ten popular uses for Dainton's portable buildings.
Portable buildings are available in a range of sizes, colours and configurations. Often portable buildings do not have to comply with the same planning restrictions as permanent structures and they are durable, long lasting and cost effective solutions where extra space is required.
If you need to create extra space we can supply new and used portable buildings for hire or sale. You can choose from our standard stock range or we can provide bespoke, customised portable buildings. For more examples of customisations please take a look at our customer case studies page.
Create Extra Space With A Dainton Portable Building
1. Temporary Classrooms
Most people are familiar with the use of portable buildings in schools, colleges, academies and universities.
Portable buildings offer good quality permanent facilities that solve overcrowding issues or make great temporary facilities during construction work.
Dainton customers in the education sector include Brixham Community College in South Devon.
2. Portable Offices
Portable offices provide extra space for your growing workforce.
They can be open plan or customised with partition walls, heating, insulation and windows.
They can also be stacked if space is limited or linked as you expand. Aggregate Industries in Devon are one of our portable office customers.
3. Changing Rooms
We supplied Torquay Utd with two 40ft changing rooms.
The buildings were fitted with boilers and plumbing for showers, sinks and toilets.
Non-slip flooring was laid inside and partition walls created separate changing room and treatment areas.
4. Cafes and Kitchens
Portable buildings can be transformed with cladding, like the cafe and kitchen buildings we supplied to the Black Rock Beach resort near Looe.
State-of-the-art kitchen facilities were fitted and the final result was an attractive beach side cafe.
Portable buildings can be easily adapted for use as shops and stores with electrics, lighting, hard wearing floors and secure doors and windows.
We supplied Northlew Village Stores near Okehampton with a used 32ft x 10ft open plan plastic coated steel cabin.
6. Canteens, Toilets &
Units can be customised with vending machines, fridges, sinks and work surfaces.
7. Club Rooms
We supply portable buildings that are up to 40ft in length and these large buildings are ideal for club rooms, community halls and scout huts.
Dainton customers include the 6th Plympton Scout Group in Plymouth.
All our portable buildings are delivered by expert drivers and lowered into position using a lorry mounted crane that we supply.
8.Marketing and Sales Suites
Black Rock Beach resort in Millendreath is being transformed in a multi-million pound redevelopment.
To promote the new holiday homes, the resort have used a Dainton portable building as a sales office, complete with attractive decking, balcony and impressive sea views.
9. Site Offices & Gatehouses
Anti-vandal portable buildings are an ideal solution for remote sites or where vandalism or theft is a problem.
Bloor Homes, a national construction company, choose our anti-vandal portable buildings for a site in Bideford. Features include steel window shutters and integrated door locks to deter break-ins.
10. Training Rooms
Customers such as Heritage Homes use portable buildings as training rooms.
The buildings can be used as comfortable teaching environments or fitted with specialist equipment.
Because they are portable, the training rooms can also be transported to different locations as they are needed.
