Whole Schools

Discover the ultimate quality - assured, sustainable way to create complete new schools, and extensions, in half the time of traditional construction

There is no room for compromise when you’re building new education facilities, which is why so many schools and local authorities choose a Yorkon building solution.

The cleaner, safer, faster way to build new schools
The advanced off-site building solutions can create complete school complexes of any size in less than half the time of traditional construction projects. Quality is assured by manufacturing the buildings under controlled factory conditions, then delivering them to site for rapid, safe assembly and fitting out. That gives you a cleaner, safer, more sustainable solution than any site-based building project.

Versatile building solutions for every curriculum requirement 
Yorkon building solutions can fulfil every education requirement, from science laboratories and IT suites to sports halls and kitchens. Yorkon buildings can be located almost anywhere, with minimal foundations and groundworks. Multi-storey capabilities enable you to maximise the space available on site. Existing schools can be seamlessly extended using a Yorkon building solution.

Inspirational buildings designed to meet your needs
The architectural versatility of the Yorkon building solution means it can be adapted to your specific requirements. Externally, buildings can feature timber, brick, metal and other claddings, sweeping roofs and canopies, fully-glazed atria and floor-to-ceiling windows. Well-designed interiors can include bright colour schemes, high ceilings, well-ventilated rooms to reduce CO2 build-up, and anti-bullying layouts with unisex toilets and open-plan communal areas. 

“The Portakabin Group has brought all the key ingredients of a flexible building system to meet our growing need for school places; speed of construction to get the school up and running quickly, strength and longevity to meet the demands of a school site, and best value for money.”
