Bespoke Design

Sales Director, Matt, worked closely with our customer on the design of the building. They worked out placement of all windows, doors, lights, sockets, heaters and partitions together.

Midlands Portable Buildings Ltd bought in the BS EN 1090 complaint steel framework which the building is built upon. 125mm x 50mm timber framing was then installed and the plastisol steel, 100mm non-combustible with rockwool insulation and vinyl-faced plasterboard were joined to the framework.

Our customer wanted a fresh modern exterior using Siberian larch and anthracite windows for their new gatehouse. The windows were custom designed to suit the specific requirements of the customer. They needed two sliding windows for either side of the building to be able to talk to lorry drivers one side and general traffic the other. The placement on the lorry side had to be exact so they were able to speak to the drivers as their waste was being weighed. Vinyl flooring was laid so it is easy to wipe down and clean. A steel fire door and fully glazed door were also added.

The security gatehouse was divided into separate areas including an office, toilet, kitchenette, reception area and weighbridge office. The area in which the separate office, toilet and kitchenette were situated pocket sliding doors were used to utilise the space more effectively.


We used a local crane and haulage company to lift the gatehouse and transport to the site address where it was installed onto their existing foundation pads.
