Welfare Cabins: Comprehensive, Comfortable and Customisable

Welfare cabins represent an essential convenience in various demanding environments, offering a versatile solution to meet the varying needs of staff and visitors. These portable havens provide indispensable facilities ranging from toilets and showers to kitchens and changing rooms, crucial for sites lacking immediate access to main utilities. Their reliance on alternative resources like water bowsers and effluent tanks underscores their adaptability, particularly in remote or temporary locations such as construction sites.

Far from just a temporary fix, these site welfare cabins bring the permanence of traditional structures together with the speedy setup and cost-effectiveness of modular units, making them an increasingly favoured choice across numerous sectors. ModCon Cabins is at the forefront of this innovation, crafting airy and modern welfare cabins equipped with all necessary amenities and comforts of home. Our offerings extend from high-security units to eco-conscious alternatives, complemented by a comprehensive range of ancillary items, ensuring a wholesome solution tailored to your specific needs.

Kitchens and Canteen Units

We manufacture, supply and fit a range of different food preparation units, from small, independent kitchen blocks to large-scale canteen setups. These welfare cabins can be fitted with green or anti-vandal properties according to your unique requirements. We’ll also fit all your ancillary items, such as staircases, ramps, handrails and water bowsers for you, in addition to fitting worktops, water heaters and lighting. We take care of everything – including the kitchen sink!

Drying and Changing Rooms

Our steel anti-vandal units are perfect for creating a safe, warm area for getting changed, ideal for sports changing rooms. In addition to insulating them and fitting them with the appropriate lighting, we can create bespoke bench seating to be fitted along the internal walls, as well as installing hooks for ease of use. We make our welfare cabins in a range of bespoke sizes and are always happy to accommodate custom specifications.

Toilet Blocks

Modular buildings are a great way of adding washroom facilities to your premises quickly and affordably. We make toilet block units in a range of sizes and configurations, also providing all your toilets, urinals, sinks, mirrors, countertops and even soap dispensers. With us, you won’t have to worry about running water either, as we also connect water bowsers and effluent tanks to your site welfare cabins for you.

As an end-to-end service, we’ll provide everything you need to create the perfect accommodation in our welfare cabins.

Plastisol Cabins

Plastisol is a type of polymer coating applied to galvanised steel sheets to make them look more aesthetically pleasing. It also serves to protect your cabins from external elements, helping to keep rust at bay without compromising on strength and durability. Our Plastisol cabins make a great choice for those looking for more permanent modular building solutions and can be painted in any colour to match your desired image.

Eco Cabins

Sustainability is a major priority nowadays. If you want to make your site welfare cabins as green as possible, our eco cabins are a great choice. We fit them with a number of energy-saving features, such as upgraded insulation, uPVC windows, automatic door closings, light timers and LED lighting to help you reduce both your energy bills and your carbon footprint. For the eco-conscious among you, we can even install solar panels to your ceilings, or in a separate unit, allowing you to generate your own renewable power.

Converted Shipping Containers

In addition to manufacturing made-to-measure modular buildings, we also convert second-hand shipping containers, refurbishing and repurposing them to create beautiful, functional welfare cabins. Whether you need new bathrooms, kitchens or changing rooms, you’re guaranteed to be impressed with the transformation.


Our office welfare cabins provide versatile, high-standard professional spaces. Tailored to your needs, these units support productivity with essential amenities and robust technology infrastructure.

Great experience with this company. Alan was really helpful from start to finish and was quick to respond to our queries. Already recommended them to other construction sites. Thanks, Alan!
I can’t recommend ModCon highly enough. We had two new toilet and shower blocks delivered on Monday and have already ordered our smoking shelters with them because they’re so good. Everything arrived as promised and ready for use.
We got our new office units through ModCon and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look great and the guys from ModCon went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They’re really friendly and easy to talk to as well.
