Donald Shepherd invented the first Portakabin building in York over 50 years ago and Portakabin is now a UK SuperBrand.

This image is a composite of individual Portakabin buildings that make up a portrait of their inventor – the late Donald Shepherd.

The picture features a range of Portakabin buildings, used as nurseries, schools and office buildings as well as state-of-the art hospitality suites and a full hospital wing.

Modular Building innovators for more than 50 years

Since Donald Shepherd founded the company over 50 years ago, Portakabin has continued to innovate and develop exceptional buildings that just happen to be assembled in a factory rather than on site. These buildings meet the challenges of efficient, sustainable, high-quality construction.

Portakabin employs more than 1,300 people in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium and Holland.
