Bespoke equipment housings for all sectors
At Portastor, there's no such thing as a standard building. Instead, we use our design and engineering expertise to develop individual buildings to securely house your specific operational and safety-critical equipment. We provide our bespoke equipment housings to customers in the Oil and Gas, Rail, Utility Power and Communications sectors - around the world. We have the capability to design electrical systems to meet varied international, ANSI and IEC standards. Our buildings can be designed to withstand extreme conditions in the most remote and hazardous working environments, as well as providing blast-resistant, temperature and humidity-controlled enclosures for sensitive control equipment.
We have the unique capability to manufacture large single housings up to 30m by 6m and weighing up to 100 tonnes. We can also create linked-module buildings of unlimited dimensions to house equipment on an even larger scale. Where large numbers of identical buildings are required we can develop a repeatable standard design for production-line manufacturing in our dedicated facilities.
Factory-manufactured packaged solutions
All Portastor equipment housings are constructed off-site under closely controlled and monitored conditions at our own purpose-built, 60-acre manufacturing facility in York, UK. Here, our skilled personnel install and test all client-supplied equipment to your specifications, as well as fitting fire-suppression and environmental-control systems to create the optimum operating conditions for your equipment. The result is a complete packaged solution ready for delivery and simple installation on your site.
Off-site construction for speed, safety, quality and efficiency
Crucially, our innovative factory-based building methods can deliver your buildings up to 50% faster than traditional construction techniques. In addition, they deliver increased efficiency and safety by removing construction activities from your operational site. All work is carried out in our ISO 9001 certified factory, guaranteeing consistently high quality standards in every building. What's more, construction in a factory means that projects are never delayed by poor weather or site-related restrictions, giving you greater certainty over costs and project times.
Your equipment housing one-stop shop
When you choose Portastor to supply your equipment housings, you won't have to deal with anyone else. Our dedicated project teams will manage everything from initial consultation, through the design phase to manufacturing, testing, installation and on-site commissioning. We will coordinate the delivery of your buildings to site, anywhere in the world, and our experienced facilities management team will oversee the installation and final on-site testing. That means you will have just one point of contact for your entire project.
