Portakabin Group Brings Yorkon Off-Site Solutions to Healthcare Estates 2016


Stand number C25

The Portakabin Group will be showcasing its Yorkon off-site solutions at this year's Healthcare Estates event.  Its team of off-site specialists will be on hand to advise healthcare providers, architects and contractors about how to increase capacity on constrained hospital sites - with shorter programme times, less disruption and greater certainty of completion on time and on budget.

The Yorkon stand at Healthcare Estates will demonstrate the latest advancements in off-site technology and some of the ground-breaking projects which have changed the face of the construction industry. 

Yorkon off-site solutions offer the unrivalled flexibility to meet almost any design brief, hospital site and building footprint with greater efficiency. The approach will reduce programme times by up to 50 per cent, and deliver buildings with improved thermal efficiency for lower running costs and the assurance of completion on time and on budget.

Modular buildings can be rapidly installed in enclosed courtyards, on the roofs of existing buildings and on steel platforms to help healthcare providers increase capacity to meet the increasing demand for services.

Facilities constructed off site by Portakabin can have 12m clear internal spans up to six storeys high and the architectural variety to complement existing buildings or to create landmark developments for prominent sites.

These award-winning off-site solutions use engineering, rather than construction tolerances, delivering greater accuracy and build quality. An innovative factory-fitted concrete floor system also provides the response factors required for sensitive surgical procedures, as well as for ward and office applications to avoid over-specification.

Yorkon off-site solutions have been extensively used for hospital extensions, self-contained theatre blocks, emergency care units, haemodialysis centres, offices, community clinics, and complete hospitals, delivering all the advantages of modular construction. Facilities can be standalone buildings or seamless extensions to existing units.

Services from Portakabin include design, planning, groundworks, module manufacture and installation, fitting out, landscaping, testing and commissioning - a full and efficient turn-key service for both healthcare clients and contractors.
