Portable buildings or temporary buildings are buildings which are designed and built to be easily moved and transported as opposed to permanently located. A portable building differs from a modular building as they are often used on a more temporary basis and removed quickly. Temporary and portable buildings have been used for a large number of years.
The type of portable building which is most familiar have been designed so that they can be carried to or from a site on a large lorry and lifted on and off by a crane.
Portable buildings can take a variety of uses. They are often seen standing alone or in groups as temporary site offices on building sites. In this instance they are usually stacked two high with metal stairs to reach the upper level. Other examples of how a portable building can be used include rural offices and on site changing rooms. Some portable buildings can be very complex where they join these units to form large office blocks, sometimes over several floors. These can be disguised as a normal building with the use of brick style cladding and a traditional pitched roof.
