Yorkon Launches Guide To Off-Site Construction On The Web

Award-winning off-site construction specialist and Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon, has launched a new guide to off-site construction on the internet. The website is designed to give architects, contractors, consultants and construction clients a fast and efficient guide to modular building and the Yorkon approach.

The site,, demonstrates how off-site construction can provide quality building solutions and Yorkon’s extensive track record in delivering exciting, imaginative architecture – on time and on budget.

Features of the new website include sections for healthcare, education, office, retail, transport and pharmachem professionals, the latest news, innovations and images from Yorkon, and details of the full range of services available – from finance and design to manufacturing and project management.

Further developments of the website will include a downloadable Design Guide available later this year which will contain practical advice to help architects and contractors work with off-site construction and the Yorkon system.

Research has also shown that Yorkon has delivered 96 per cent of all its building projects on time and 94 per cent on budget over the past five years – well exceeding construction industry averages and giving clients complete peace of mind and reduced risk.
