Exemplary buildings and service standards

Independent accreditations assure you of exemplary buildings and service standards from Foremans

You can rest assured that when you choose a refurbished modular building from Foremans, you will benefit from the highest standards of engineering, design and service. Our company and products have been independently accredited and approved by many prestigious organisations, assuring you that they meet or exceed industry standards. 


BBA (British Board of Agrément)
The BBA provides authoritative, independent information on the performance of building products. Under BBA assessment, Portakabin buildings undergo rigorous structural tests – giving you the assurance that they meet permanent building regulations and provide outstanding performance. 

Pioneering warranty cover
Every Portakabin modular building from Foremans comes with a 3-year product warranty, covering the external fabric of the building, and a 10-year structural warranty, covering the structural, load-bearing elements. This warranty cover gives you complete confidence in the quality and durability of your refurbished building.


Modular & Portable Buildings Association (MPBA)
Foremans is a member of the MPBA, an association for the promotion and marketing of its members’ products and services. It has definitive aims, objectives and codes of conduct. The Foremans Technical Manager sits on the MPBA Technical Committee.

Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS)
All Foremans staff with a responsibility for visiting customer sites are CSCS qualified. CSCS keeps a database of all businesses working in construction that have achieved and can demonstrate they have attained an agreed level of occupational competence.

Dun and Bradstreet credit rating of 1
Foremans has been awarded a credit score rating of 1 by Dun and Bradstreet. This rating puts Foremans in the top 15% of UK companies, with a very low probability of business failure. That gives you the assurance that we’re here to stay and will be around to service your building and provide ongoing support services, for the long term.

Crown Commercial Service
Following a rigorous, independent assessment of the buildings and services offered by Foremans there is now a framework agreement in place with the Crown Commercial Service, which means that any publicly funded organisation can significantly reduce both the cost and time involved in the procurement of its buildings from Foremans.

CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme)
Our accreditation by CHAS means that you won’t have to carry out lengthy assessments of our health and safety performance when you choose to work with Foremans. As a CHAS-accredited supplier, our health and safety policies, systems and procedures have been rigorously assessed by independent specialists – so you don’t have to.

Constructionline is a Government scheme that maintains theUK’s largest database of pre-qualified contractors and consultants. Our accreditation by Constructionline gives you the assurance that our technical and financial systems have been independently assessed and approved.

Achilles Utilities Vendor Database
As part of the Portakabin Group, Foremans is a registered supplier on the Achilles Utilities Vendor Database. To qualify for registration, information on the group's financial performance, health, safety and environmental policies, CSR performance, products and services had to be checked and verified by Achilles to ensure it was accurate and up to date.
