Yorkon launches new DVD for healthcare professionals

Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon – winner of the Off-site Manufacturing Specialist of the Year award for the past three years – has launched a new DVD to illustrate how off-site construction can be used in the healthcare sector.

The DVD is designed to assist professionals in health authorities, NHS trusts and independent healthcare providers, as well as architects and contractors, who are considering modular construction for new hospital buildings, treatment centres and extensions.

The DVD features footage of the construction process, a number of finished hospital buildings and an interview with a nurse matron. It looks at two NHS treatment centres – the £12m Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre, which was the first ITC to be built off-site and the most complex modular building project ever undertaken in the UK – and Yorkon’s second ITC, the St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre in Portsmouth.

Copies of the new DVD can be requested on-line at or by calling 0845 2000 123.
