Arriving as a flatpack self-assembly kit, the unit can be deployed by air, sea or road.

The minimum of shipping cube is achieved during the packing process, a massive 325m3 of accommodation can be delivered on one articulated lorry. This is the equivalent of 141m2 of floor area. Previously, only soft sided structures such as tents or inflatable buildings could offer this type of instant accommodation volume.

Expandakabin does not require a crane or special tools to assemble. Each panel can be lifted be hand, and the only tools required are a socket set. Once assembled, the Expandakabin can be enlarged, by bolting on further units. Simply remove the panels from one side of each unit, and bolt them together to form large areas of open plan space, side by side or back to back. Units can be moved with forklift, crane and lorry either assembled or flat packed.

This panel system also means that doors and windows can be relocated within the structure. All panels can be bought separately, so damaged ones can be replaced, or additional doors and windows can be added.

The structure is manufactured from powder coated galvanised steel to give the product high strength and a long life span.
