Over 50 years of customer satisfaction

Chris Pitt, Plant Manager, Redrow:
"We are very impressed with our new Portakabin marketing suites and believe that they provide a professional environment for meeting customers. Whenever we're building a high profile development, these buildings are now our preferred choice every time."

Adrian Myles, Accommodation Manager at BAM Construction:
"The buildings themselves are fantastic. This was the first time we had used Konstructa Hire on a major project like this, and we were extremely impressed by every aspect of their service, from the manner in which they dealt with us to the regular communication at every stage and the high standards of health and safety during installation. Most importantly, the people using the buildings on site are delighted with them."

Richard Manville, Construction Manager of Berkeley Homes at Bersted Park:
"The accommodation has exceeded all our expectations so far. We have been really impressed with the specification of the Konstructa Energy-Saver buildings.

Andrew Sprakes, Head Teacher at Campsmount Technology College:
"We are all stunned and delighted at what has been achieved here - teaching accommodation of the highest standard, delivered in such a short timescale, and in very challenging working conditions.  We can't speak highly enough of the Portakabin team".

Harry Rayat, Operations Manager at Carr Manor Community School:
“The new school is just fantastic.  We have been very impressed with the speed and quality of construction.”

Simon Ward, Business Director at Cuckoo Hall Academy:
"We are very pleased with Foremans performance. We like the way the buildings look and feel, and would definitely recommend the approach to other schools, academies and local authorities."

Project Manager Rachel Andrew of ISG Construction:
“We have also been very pleased with the after-sales service provided by Konstructa Hire, right from the placing of our order through to delivery of the units and beyond."

Mike Hunt of SGB Rovacabin:
Foremans offered a swift, well thought out, and efficient solution. They took responsibility for a whole range of tasks, including evaluation of the building, scheduling the programme of works for removal and implementing the programme.”

Rodney Ackland, Group Property Manager at Babcock Rail:
Portakabin buildings were the obvious choice because of their quality and relocatability.”

Sarah Parr, Network Rail Project Manager:
“The effort that Portakabin put into completing such a complex project right on schedule, despite all the extras we added, was tremendous.”

Stephen Dale Capital Projects Manager of the East Riding of Yorkshire Primary Care Trust:
"Cottingham Clinic is a fantastic building, delivered on time, cost and quality." 
 
John Heath, Shop Fitting Manager at Lloydspharmacy:
“We have been very happy with the service from Portakabin – they are always attentive and helpful and, in all the years I have dealt with them, they have never failed to fulfil their promises or meet their deadlines.”

Claire Hornick, Director of Operations, Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth:
"Foremans have provided us with a high quality, purpose-designed facility, which exactly meets our needs and budget - and they delivered it with minimal disruption two weeks ahead of our original programme."

 Steve Raw, Contracts Manager, TTS Interiors:
"The speed of delivery by Konstructa Hire given the short notice was extremely impressive, with the unit being delivered only four hours after initial contact. Also the fact, that although we were plainly desperate, there was no attempt to capitalise on this by inflating the charges.”

Tony Traynor, Site Manager, Luddon Construction:
“The fact that Konstructa Hire was able to turn these buildings around and provide them fully furnished within a couple of days was fantastic. If they hadn't been able to get the buildings on site so quickly, the whole project would have been delayed. I'll definitely be requesting Konstructa Hire buildings for future projects - there's nothing on the market to match them, or the service provided."

Syd Jamieson, Project Manager, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust:
 "This new unit provides a much improved facility out in the local community. The Yorkon approach gave us the speed of construction we needed to meet our priorities for facility improvement. It was delivered on time and on budget, and we are very happy with the finished building. It has freed up space within the hospital for use by another department and has created a welcoming, high quality environment for our dialysis patients. We would definitely recommend the Yorkon approach and consider using it again."

Fiona Calnan, Chief Executive, UKSH:
“Yorkon has completed another high quality building for us. The Devizes treatment centre has been designed specifically to deliver day surgery procedures for NHS patients. Our partnership with Yorkon has worked well and we are pleased with how the project was managed and the quality of the new centre.”

Jane Cameron, Building Control Officer, South Gloucestershire Council:
“This is an excellent healthcare building that successfully demonstrates an innovative approach to construction. The use of off-site construction shortened the build time, improved site efficiency, and reduced site waste and traffic. The Yorkon site was very well managed throughout, with excellent workmanship, outstanding communications, and a positive commitment to the health and safety of everyone working on the project.” The building was completed to the very highest standards and finish, and as well as being aesthetically pleasing, it is welcoming and user friendly.”

Huw Thomas, Projects and Facilities Manager:
"After meeting with two preferred building suppliers, it was clear that only Portakabin had the capacity to meet our specified deadlines for transferring staff from Stansted.”

David Orr, Project Manager, Sainsbury’s:
“The service we have received from Portakabin has been second-to-none and having a dedicated project management team has been excellent.”

Cliff Robertson, Facilities Area Manager at Millbrook:
Portakabin has a product range and service offering that leaves most of its competitors wanting. We would definitely consider using Portakabin again, whether it be for hiring or buying small buildings or creating a permanent modular facility.”

Mike Newberry, Networking Strategy Manager, CarillionWSP:
“The finished Yorkon building has exceeded our expectations. It has created a pleasant working environment – modern offices, which are light, airy and spacious, meeting both the requirements of Carillion and our client, the Highways Agency.

Tony Worthington, Chairman of AKW Group:
"We looked at purchasing a new modular building from several suppliers, but the Foremans recycled and refurbished option represented the best value and with no compromise on the quality of the accommodation.  As part of the selection process we visited Foremans head office and production centre in East Yorkshire and were impressed with their customer service from the first meeting."

David Clarke, Senior Architectural Technician, Bournville Architects:
"We have worked with Foremans on three other projects and are confident in their ability to deliver on programme and on cost.  They have a fantastic product - fast installation, high quality workmanship, and a high degree of flexibility."

Mark Scott, Service Manager - Jobs and Skills Service at Leeds City Council:
"The boundless possibilities for re-use within the long life of the EASEL project was the driving force behind our choice of building type.  As the Foremans building is fully relocatable and can easily be reconfigured, it provides us with a cost-effective alternative to traditionally constructed, permanent accommodation."

Peter Thompson, Assistant Head of Capital Projects, University of East London:
"Foremans offered us the best value for each project, met our budget requirements and would guarantee completion on time. We feel each facility looks as good as a brand new building."

Christian Berdzinski, general services manager, Atos Worldline
"I have been working with Portakabin for 7 years. I trust them."

Alexis Leurent, Project manager Procter & Gamble

""Portakabin handled the project from the beginning to the end. They were very flexible as we had many layout changes. They did everthing to make sure that the buildings were delivered on time!"""

Bernard Salas, CSTJF works manager, Total

""After an emergency at Total we needed to re-accomodate the engineers in confortable offices very quickly  Portakabin delivered 1,000 m² of quality buildings within 9 weeks."

Karim M'Barek, Administration director, Lyon 1 University

"We needed a wide space with no internal columns so that sudents could see the boards. That was possible with Portakabin solutions. This made the difference."

Hugues Perruchot, Technical director, American Hospital of Paris
"The medical staff expectations are very high in our hospital. They want to have the same level of comfort and safety whatever the circomstances are. Choosing Portakabin was the best way to meet their expectations."

Jan Visser, Technical Support Manager, Ceva Container Logistics
"We needed extra space for a short period of time and we needed it fast. Portakabin offered a solution and was able to deliver the buildings at very short notice. In addition, the service provided by Portakabin was excellent. Not only during the initial negotations but also after the building was delivered. Service is important!"

Ms A. Hooijberg –Veerman, Dentist

"I needed a solution to create a comfortable, friendly dentist practice. My clients must feel at ease and be as relaxed as possible. The Portakabin Titan building met all my needs. I could even determine the internal layout myself. Service and peace of mind were other reasons to choose Portakabin."

Mr H. Marlet, Facility Officer, IVA Driebergen Business School
"IVA is a private business school that ranks among the best 3 in the Netherlands. Why did we choose Portakabin? Because they are the best when it concerns modular buildings."

Mr K. Koolstra, Research Manager, Rijk Zwaan
"The main reason we chose Ultima buildings was the unlimited open, column free space. This is what made the difference between Portakabin buildings and those of other suppliers."
