Portakabin buildings hit the road

Leading modular building provider, Portakabin, is driving forward a prestigious new contract with the Highways Agency to provide accommodation at patrol sites across Britain’s motorway network.

Following the introduction of the Traffic Management Act, the Highways Agency is now responsible for traffic management functions on motorways that were previously carried out by the police.

Traffic Officers from the Highways Agency will be based in Portakabin Titan buildings, which provide a high quality office environment and include individual offices, a welfare room and toilet facilities.

Mowlem is the company behind the construction works at the various motorway locations and was responsible for appointing Portakabin. Kevin Simons, Mowlem’s Director for the contract, said: “When we were invited to tender for the Highways Agency contract we needed the office accommodation to be flexible and of high quality.

“We invited four companies to tender and felt that the solution offered by Portakabin best met the client’s requirements.

“Using Portakabin Titan modular buildings allows us to easily extend the accommodation if necessary as buildings can be ‘double stacked’ or linked together. This has allowed us to offer the Highways Agency a versatile and flexible solution to suit each site.”

Portakabin accommodation has so far been provided at three sites across the UK including a location at Dartford on the M25; Heston, near Heathrow on the M4 and Weatherhill, near Gatwick, on the M25. Over the next twelve months a further seven sites will benefit from the Portakabin Titan buildings.
