Worcestershire firm launches flexible building solution for Small Business Saturday

Posted on: 28th November, 2018

A Worcestershire-based firm is offering a cost-effective building solution to start-ups and entrepreneurs who want to avoid crippling business rates. To coincide with Small Business Saturday this weekend, GDL Developments has launched the ‘Portopod’-a steel-framed wooden structure which can be built onto a trailer.

Damon Dawson, Director at GDL Developments said ‘Portopods are a really flexible solution for businesses such as dog groomers, beauty bars, chiropractors  and even schools. As they qualify as a temporary structure, business owners are not liable for business rates so they’re ideal for anyone who just want to get their business up and running’

Portopods are completely bespoke, comply with building regulations and can be designed according to business requirements. Recent projects have included a mobile barbers shop which is equipped with electrical points, clad with cedar wood and is fully insulated.
