Jackleg Cabins

"Springfield are very professional, proactive and good at delivering to a tight timescale. Their management team is good to deal with, in terms of their decision-making ability and also the financial aspects of the project. They are commercially astute without being aggressive."

What Is A Jackleg Cabin?

Jackleg cabins are named after the metal structure which form the adjustable legs that support the building. These legs provide the flexibility for the cabin to be placed on uneven surfaces or to be stacked on top of each other, creating multi-storey units. They are a specific type of self-contained portable cabin.

The distinct advantages that the steel legs of a jackleg make them a fantastic spacing solution for all businesses, especially those working on construction sites – offering a stable building on uneven surfaces. All jackleg cabins are manufactured off-site in our 40,000 sq. ft. workshop in St Helens and can then be transported and delivered in a matter of days.

Why Choose A Jackleg Cabin From Springfield?

Springfield have been building jackleg cabins for more than 40 years and during this time we have continually improved the product with more efficient construction methods and materials.

Our off-site construction techniques mean that all of our buildings are produced in our workshop and ready to move in to when delivered to site. Our workshop provides our expert team with a controlled environment which isn’t affected by the weather. This means that installation of your cabin will be timely and cost-effective so there’s no need to worry about going over-budget.

We specialise in offering a truly bespoke construction service, so if you’re looking for a top-quality, convenient workspace, our jackleg cabin could be just right for you. Our jacklegs come with a fantastic range of finishing options to choose from, allowing you to decide on almost every aspect of your cabin; from the windows, to the roofing and much more. We strive to produce jackleg cabins that are perfectly suited to your individual requirements, providing a bespoke expansion solution; your building, your way!

Our buildings come in a whole range of sizes and can be single or double stacked depending on your needs. These jackleg cabins can be added to or upgraded as you see fit, providing you with a solution that can grow in-line with your business. You can even link together single or two storey buildings to create entire business complexes.

Hiring A Jackleg Cabin

We offer a bespoke hiring solution for all of our clients. Choosing from either our current stock or, dependent on length of term, a new, bespoke cabin, we accommodate a flexible hiring scheme. We offer two primary types of contracts:

  • a client-based contract where you decide on the contract period, anywhere between three months and five years, with a rental fee fixed for its duration
  • an open-ended contract with no fixed length

Both contracts provide an affordable option for clients who find themselves on a tight budget or simply see greater benefit in hiring a cabin rather than buying one outright. Find out more about our hiring option here.

Buying a Jackleg Cabin

Purchasing a jackleg cabin from Springfield offers a permanent, cost-effective solution for any company. Clients can either choose from our existing stock of cabins, or better still take advantage of our truly client-focussed, ‘design your own building’ service. We will provide a dedicated project manager to work with you to design your building, your way! 

Whether you choose a cabin from our fleet, or a newly designed one, all of our buildings can be repurposed to meet your exact needs offering a fantastic, bespoke solution. Find out more about our buying option here.
