Foremans - part of the Shepherd Group

Discover unrivalled choice, value and service from the UK's leading supplier of refurbished modular buildings

Foremans is the UK’s leading supplier of refurbished modular buildings and the biggest purchaser of pre-owned modular and portable buildings from Portakabin.

Prestigious corporate heritage

Foremans is a member of the Portakabin Group, which is itself a member of the Shepherd Group, one of the leading private family-owned businesses in the UK, employing around 3,200 colleagues, with a turnover exceeding £600m.

Foremans buys and sells second-hand modular buildings

We specialise in buying pre-owned Portakabin buildings, and in selling a range of high-quality refurbished modular buildings which are reconfigured and fitted out to meet individual customer requirements and budgets. Our buildings are used for a wide variety of applications, including offices, classrooms, healthcare facilities and hospitals, construction site buildings, canteens and much more. We also hold an extensive stock of stand-alone cabins that are available to buy on an ‘as-seen’ basis.

Quality-assured pre-owned Portakabin buildings

Many of the buildings we supply are premium-quality Portakabin buildings, originally manufactured by the market-leaders in modular construction. We hold around 30,000m2 of pre-owned modular buildings in stock. These are refurbished by specialist teams in our 82,000m2 production facilities. Refurbishment under controlled factory conditions ensures that we achieve consistently high quality standards on every building.                                                                                     

In fact, we are so confident in the quality and durability of our refurbished buildings that we are the only pre-owned modular building supplier to offer warranties on our buildings.

Leave everything to us

Foremans offers a complete package of complementary services to ensure that, when you need a newly refurbished building, you only have one supplier to deal with. These services include finance options, planning and design services, groundworks, planning permission applications, installation and fitting out services.

99% of buildings delivered on time and on budget

The high standard of our buildings and customer service is demonstrated by the fact that more than 80% of our business comes from past customers. What’s more, we have a track record of delivering 99% of buildings on time and on budget1 – giving you complete peace of mind that we’ll supply your building right on schedule, at a price that suits your budget.
