Smart-Space the British temporary building experts

Smart-space Instant Buildings is proudly promoting British Manufacturing and service from our 50,000sq ft headquarters in the heart of the West Midlands.

With a growing workforce our aim is now, as it’s always been; to provide what’s best for our customers, not what’s easiest or most profitable for us.

Whilst we’re always proud to welcome new members of the team, we’re extremely proud of our reputation for long-service team members some of whom have been with us 25 years +.

Smart-Space is the trading name of the Portable Venues (Group) Ltd, which was incorporated in 1987.  The present company evolved from unincorporated trading over the years since its inception in 1985.

  • We make our money purely by serving you. We do not sell leads. We do not subcontract. When you engage us on a contact it is wholly managed in house. We care about our customers.
  • To this end all clients are invited to participate in confidential customer service and building rating surveys the aggregated results we publish on our site.
