Pre-Assembled Portable Buildings

Ready-for-use modular building structures that arrive fully assembled

Starrco Pre-Assembled Buildings (PAB’s)

Since 1965, Starrco has been fabricating pre-assembled buildings and furnishing them across all industries. Generally, Starrco PAB’s are small structures designed to house employees or equipment. Typical applications include guardhouses, security booths, ticket booths, or equipment enclosures.

Our pre-assembled buildings arrive on the jobsite fully assembled, completely pre-wired, and ready to use. Simply off-load your PAB at your job site, set it and anchor to the concrete pad, bring power supply to our pre-wired breaker box and you are up and operating!

What Are the Benefits of a Prefabricated Building or Portable Booth?

Prefabricated buildings and portable booths provide a range of benefits to any user and any application. Whether your facility needs a ticket booth, a guardhouse, an in-plant office, or a custom prefabricated building, here are just a few of the benefits of choosing a prefabricated building or portable booth:

Speed of Installation

One of the greatest benefits of a prefabricated building is the ease of installation for your team. Portable booths and buildings are precision manufactured and pre-assembled in Starrco’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to ensure the utmost quality assurance. When your portable building arrives at your facility, all you have to do is off-load it, set it on a concrete pad, and connect the main power to the pre-wired electrical box and you’re up and operating.

High-Quality Features

Starrco is an industry-leading manufacturer of modular buildings and components. Every product we fabricate is precision-manufactured from the highest quality materials and designed and built to your specifications. Our portable buildings stand up to even the harshest climates, providing years of maintenance-free service.

Versatility for a Range of Applications

Prefabricated buildings are designed for versatility. No matter what your original use is for a portable booth, a forklift base means it’s easily relocated or repurposed as your facility’s needs change or scale. With a pre-wired modular electrical system built directly into the building itself, there’s no concern of disrupting the building’s functionality when you move or repurpose it.

A Cost-Effective, Value-Added Solution

Prefabricated buildings arrive at your site ready to go. There is no on-site construction. No managing contractors and subcontractors. No ordering or storing of materials. When you opt for a pre-assembled portable booth, it is delivered to you fully assembled, so all you have to do is set it on a concrete pad, anchor it down, and connect power to the pre-wired panel box.

Not only does this save on time-to-installation, but it’s an exceptionally cost-effective solution. Prefabricated buildings are remarkably affordable, provide years of maintenance-free service, and can be relocated as your facility’s needs change.

Key Components of a Prefabricated Building

Prefabricated buildings and booths are designed to arrive at your facility fully-assembled and ready for use. Any Starrco pre-assembled building is easily custom-fitted to meet a variety of specific needs, but they all start with a high-quality structural frame and Starrco’s signature wall panels.

Here’s a look at the key components of a prefabricated building, along with some of the optional additions you can make to customize your parking booth, guardhouse, security booth, and more:

Structural Frame

Starrco’s prefabricated buildings are made with exceptionally durable structural components designed to provide years of low maintenance service. Structural members are either powder coat painted aluminum or steel with a rust retardant finish, designed to deliver the following loading characteristics:

  • Snow Load: 30 PSF
  • Wind Load: 30 PSF (110 mph maximum)
  • Floor Load: 50 PSF
Wall Panels

The walls of your prefabricated building or booth are engineered according to your specifications. Many ticket booths, screening booths, and smoking booth applications prefer clear glass wall panels, while guard houses and security booths need the added security of a solid wall panel.

You can choose the wall panel option that best suits your application. Starrco wall panels feature the following benefits:

  • Minimum ¾” thick sandwich construction
  • Smooth white painted aluminum exterior
  • ⅛” panel interior of gray vinyl covered hardboard
  • Wall panels caulked with urethane sealant
  • Panels fastened to structural members with plated screws
Roof Structure

The benefit of a pre-assembled building is that it arrives ready to use. That said, Starrco always prioritizes the quality of our products as well as the value we offer you. To ensure the safe delivery of larger prefabricated buildings, the roof for any building larger than 4′ wide will ship knocked-down, ready for easy on-site assembly the minute it arrives.

This ensures that every component arrives at your jobsite in perfect condition, primed to perform with maintenance-free service for years to come. Any prefabricated building less than 4′ wide will ship with the roof installed for ultimate convenience and lightning-fast assembly.

Steel Base

The base of your portable building or booth is made to deliver value over the lifetime of the product. Complete with forklift pockets, your Starrco pre-assembled building is designed for transportation, ensuring you can use this building wherever you need it most for years to come. Base specifications include:

  • 4″ structural steel channels, welded with stringers on maximum 24″ centers
  • Forklift pockets
  • Steel channels painted with rust-inhibitive paint
  • Two layers of ⅝” subflooring with aluminum vapor barrier laminated underneath
  • Finished floor of commercial-grade seamless vinyl
