What is a Modular Canteen?

A modular canteen is a portable building for dining and serving food that is built from modular sections built off-site, and then delivered and installed by our team at your facility. We fit many different appliances in our portable canteens all of which can be tailored to your specific needs thanks to the modular design.

From kitchenette features, including fridges, ovens and gas cookers, to dining areas for accommodating a wide range of people, they are ideal for expanding your environment in a short space of time, as well as benefiting from being relocated without any demolition needing to take place. Many industries can benefit from our range of modular canteens, from schools, universities and colleges to construction sites, military bases and industrial facilities that require a convenient and flexible dining space.

Our engineering team will also visit your site and begin all groundwork, including ducting and drainage with both processes working efficiently together, minimising operational disruption.
