As dramatic as this sounds, Bunkabin was originally conceived as a way to save the lives of construction workers - too many of whom die each year from sleeping in ill-equipped site units and being overcome by carbon monoxide poisoning.
As a manufacturer of portable buildings, we sat down and came up with a unit that provides better insulation, has an en-suite bathroom and the ability to withstand being bashed about. At the end of this process, we had created Bunkabin’s first ever sleeper unit - the Original Sleeper.
Since that day in 1994, we have worked alongside and supported the construction and demolition industries throughout Great Britain. No matter how big or small the job, we are happy to help ensure your workers are safe, warm and well rested.

How Bunkabin can help
We are able to offer short, medium or even long-term accommodation and welfare units, such as diners, toilets and shower blocks, enabling you to better control your costs. Other benefits include ensuring you can locate all your workforce in one place, keep vehicles onsite overnight, reduce travel times and increase security.
What’s more, workers have no worries about commuting through traffic to and from work as well as mounting costs of living in a hotel or paying restaurant prices for food.
Some of the sectors we support include:
- Motorway recovery
- Renewable energy
- Self builds
Our accommodation is flexible, spacious and stylish, providing everything your workforce could need after a hard day at work - from somewhere they can shower, relax and get a good night’s sleep, to somewhere they can socialise and prepare food when they want it. Our portable units facilitate this thanks to a range of excellent amenities, including:
- Full-sized bed
- Powerful low-energy mains pressure shower
- En-suite toilet and sink
- Wardrobe, shelving and other storage space
- Personal workstation
- Thermostat-controlled heating
Our modular cabin units are the perfect solution for construction projects in the city or the country, and we are able to provide accommodation for short-term hire to your site quickly and efficiently, should the need arise. We can provide cost-effective robust sleepers anywhere accessible by a lorry.
