The Portakabin Ultima Vision is a Stylish Supermodel Taking the Modular Building Hire Market by Storm

York, United Kingdom, June 22, 2007 --( Leading modular building provider, Portakabin, has changed the face of the portable buildings industry yet again, with the launch of another ground-breaking supermodel available for hire.

The company’s brand new modular building, Ultima Vision features floor to ceiling fully-glazed double-glazed wall paneling across the front of each module. This offers style and sophistication that is unique in the modular building hire market.

A recent Gallup Management Journal survey¹ reported that 28% of people are unable to see outdoors from their workspace and, of these people, 86% are more likely to be unhappy and disengaged at work.

The glazed walls in the Ultima Vision modular building not only create a modern, attractive appearance both inside and out, but the increased levels of natural light also help to increase staff motivation and productivity. Ideal as office space.

Mike Williams, General Manager of Portakabin Hire Division, explains, ‘Natural lighting is a hugely important factor influencing human performance in the workplace. A massive 66% of British workers have reported that the quality of the working environment is one of the most important aspects in providing job satisfaction and career contentment².

‘Increased natural lighting, thermal comfort and indoor air quality can therefore dramatically increase employee productivity. The Ultima Vision modular building has been designed to meet these very requirements, providing spacious, flexible interiors, accommodating any number of people in single or two-story buildings.’

The features of the portable building have also been carefully designed to ensure excellent thermal performance. For example, the walls, doors and roof are insulated using Envirofoam, which has an ozone depleting potential of zero, therefore minimising the impact on the environment. This also enhances structural strength while providing a highly energy efficient building at the same time, helping customers to improve their environmental performance and reduce carbon emissions caused through wasted energy.

In addition, solar control glass comes as standard with all Ultima Vision portable buildings, which provides 40% better shading coefficient than clear glass, therefore preventing solar overheating.

Mike concluded, ‘The launch of the Ultima Vision building is a huge step forward for the modular building hire market, and is certainly the most architecturally advanced product available in terms of aesthetics and the internal working environment it provides.

‘Each Ultima Vision building is designed to meet the customer’s exact requirements and its flexibility means it can be constructed to create one or two storeys and is able to accommodate an endless choice of layout options. We are delighted and very proud to have developed such a pioneering building.’

All Portakabin Ultima Vision buildings also come with the unique Portakabin
Customer Charter, which promises that all projects will be completed on time and on budget. If Portakabin fails to meet the agreed contract start date, the customer will be entitled to one week’s free modular building hire for every day it is late³. This provides customers with complete peace of mind that their building project will be completed on time and to the agreed contract sum.

All in all, Ultima Vision is set to be the new face of the modular office space hire market.
