Are Portable Buildings Environmentally Friendly?

It’s become more commonplace to consider the environmental impact of every major decision you make whether it’s in business or at home. If you’re considering a new office location or need temporary premises but you’re concerned about the environment, portable cabins could be your answer.

In this blog, we explain some of the top reasons why portable buildings can be considered environmentally friendly.

Reusable materials

One of the great things about portable buildings is that the materials used are usually fully recyclable or can be reused which means less landfill waste. Instead of creating new materials, like, for example, those used in non-portable structures, the manufacturer can acquire recycled materials which reduce the use of energy.

Fewer deliveries

Since most of the assembly of portable buildings are done in factories, this means less equipment is required and they can be constructed a lot quicker. Compared to traditional construction where materials are constantly being delivered to the building site, portable buildings can be put together much quicker as the majority of the work has already been done. This means fewer road trips and less environmental pollution!

Energy efficient

You may also find that portable buildings offer greater thermal efficiency than standard buildings, this means that less energy can be used and running costs are reduced. Running on a lower energy level ensures that you are only using the amount of energy that you actually need so nothing gets wasted.


You mustn’t forget that having a portable building means it can be moved to new locations! Not only does this stop the ground from being permanently damaged and tampering with the natural state of the environment, but you’ll get so much more use out of the building.
