Press release from: Portakabin

The UK’s leading modular building supplier, Portakabin, has been selected as an accredited building supplier to the public sector by Buying Solutions.

Public sector organisations can often find themselves bogged down with time consuming and costly competitive tender processes when it comes to the procurement of accommodation solutions.

However, leading portable building supplier, Portakabin, has been selected by Buying Solutions as an accredited building supplier to the public sector. This allows organisations who use Portakabin to benefit from rapid procurement as well as modular buildings of the highest quality.

As part of the four-year contract, public sector organisations looking for accommodation solutions will be able to avoid entering into costly, compulsory competitive tender process and simply turn to Portakabin to fulfil all their requirements, for portable buildings of all sizes. This system can save, on average, 77 days and up to £50,000 on small tenders and up to £140,000 on tenders that are more complex.

The accreditation by Buying Solutions means that Portakabin products, services and full turn-key packages have been rigorously assessed and independently adjudged to provide excellent quality and value for money.

Buying Solutions is a leading buying agency for the UK public sector. It aims to deliver multiple savings in time and cost to its public sector customers through the sourcing of more than 500,000 products and services from a wide range of carefully selected suppliers. 

Services are available for the Education sector, the Ministry of Defence, HM Prison Service, the Health sector, the Police and Emergency Services as well as any organisation that is more than 50 per cent publicly funded. In addition, modular building specifiers working for the public sector - such as architects, engineers and facilities management companies - can also access its services.

But it is not just speed of service and value for money that is achieved by sourcing accommodation solutions from Portakabin. Each new Portakabin modular building is delivered with a pioneering 20-year structural warranty and 5-year product warranty package. 

Furthermore, every Portakabin modular building procured is delivered with the company's unique Customer Charter. The Charter states that if the company fails to complete projects on time and on budget, customers are entitled to a week's free hire for every day Portakabin is late, or an additional 12 months product warranty on buildings that are purchased.1
