Europa Prefabri has carried out a new project of modular offices for public institutions. In this case, we designed, manufactured and assembled modular offices for a city council at Canary Islands.

Following the public request for tenders in open procedure, the Department of Works and Services of the Town Hall of Agüimes, in Gran Canaria, has relied on us to expand the existing office area of the municipal warehouse, which was built in traditional construction.

The town hall choose modular construction for the expansion of the existing offices because the management of licenses and permits is much easier and faster. As a result, the project’s completion time was much shorter than if it were carried out using traditional construction. To carry out traditional construction works in the area, it was necessary to develop a technical project and obtain the licence associated with it.

The new modular building is attached to the existing one, and is composed of 4 modules with dimensions 6,00×2,40m. The total surface of the building is 57sqm distributed in three offices and a small rest room for workers. The materials used, were chosen in order to improve ventilation, noise protection, lighting and thermal insulation.

The modules have an Armstrong false ceiling and the building is divided into different rooms and offices. The divisions are made by glass partitions and double ecological panel of 16 mm thick melanin with rock wool insulation of 40 mm. The hidden profiling is tubular, with neoprene joints to provide greater water tightness to the structure.

All the rooms are equipped with acoustic insulation and air-conditioning systems. The electrical installation is complete, and consists of general lighting, sockets and jacks.

The modules have been transported in sea container using our KIT (Flat-Pack) system, and the modular offices were assembled by our staff in less than a week.

At Europa Prefabri, we develop innovative solutions in order to offer custom-designed options, adapting to the temporary or definitive needs of professionals from all sectors. We are specialized in the manufacture and assemble of modular offices for public institutions, facilities for education and health industries, for construction, commercial areas, etc.


Construction industry is in line with the new architectural trend: the modules

We live in times of haste and reduced space, and that is why modular architecture has emerged in Spain. With it we will be able to take advantage of any space we have. It also has another great advantage:  the reduction of construction time to a minimum.

Modular architecture is characterized by its quick manufacture, its versatility and its adaptability to different spaces.

The greatest exponent of this building system are the portable cabins. Functional areas to work on construction sites that create a very useful place to work in.

Construction companies have been using portable cabins in Spain for many years. Nowadays, the traditional portakabins are improved thanks to the use of modular architecture in their manufacture, which allows the production of high quality structures in a very short time.

In the construction world, portable cabins are a very useful product, as they have many different applications: they are perfect for storage, as they guarantee the safety of the materials and prevent any damage external factors could cause. They are also a good solution as offices for site management and can be assembled to create labour camps for workers. They can be used in large construction sites as dining halls or changing room facilities, as it is possible to equip them with tables, benches, lockers… and of course they are extremely useful as sanitary facilities. The portable cabins can be adapted to use as surveillance cabins, as it is possible to glaze all sides and reduce its dimensions.

Analysing the advantages that modular construction offers over traditional construction, we can clearly observe a series of advances, mainly related to cost and time reduction.

Among the advantages of modular architecture we highlight its reduced cost comparing to traditional construction, its quicker assembling, and the use of recycled materials in the construction process, which makes it environmentally friendly, without prejudicing, of course, the quality of the materials.

Another advantage is the possibility of choosing both the size and design of each room, bearing in mind the opportunity of modifying it in the event of a future change in needs.

Modular architecture is therefore the future of building construction, as it requires less investment and offers more possibilities than traditional construction.


We carried out a new Project of parking shades for large surfaces. The Company Carrefour has trusted us again for the installation of tensile canopies.

Both the cover and the spans are painted in light grey.

We have installed tensile canopies to cover 382 vehicles, protecting them from the sun and rain.

All our parking canopies are flexible and modular, they are designed, manufactured and installed in accordance with the requirements and preferences of each of our customers, regardless of the sector of activity concerned.

We can include anything our client wants in the cover, from a logo to institutional customer information.

Europa Prefabri guarantees the highest quality in its covers. The metal steel structures used in the manufacture of parking canopies are made of different alloys of the highest quality. The structures can be galvanized and lacquered in the desired colour.

The concrete foundations vary according to the structure to be applied and are fixed to the metaltextile structures with suitable fasteners that guarantee the necessary stability.

The covers are high-strength, PVC-coated and lacquered on both sides. The coating process ensures maximum waterproofing and breathability, protection against UV rays and thermal insulation, as well as easy cleaning and non-adhesion of external elements (particles, snow, etc.).

Below, we show you our range of parking shades for large surfaces.

Europa Prefabri has supplied and assembled portakabins to create a modular ensemble for dining hall and changing room purpose

Park Therming Projects, leader in the manufacture and marketing of themed products in Spain, has trusted Europa Prefabri for the supply and installation of a modular ensemble. The modular ensemble will be used by the company’s employees for dining and changing rooms. The modular portakabins have been installed at the company’s three locations in Orihuela (Alicante). We provided and installed a modular ensemble, a sanitary module, a modular office and an open portakabin with a side toilet.

The materials we use in our construction system are of high quality. At first, the modules offered are those of our standard line, always maintaining the functionality and quality of the elements. From here, we can offer improvements, both in quality and design, by incorporating other materials.

  • All our modular portakabins can be stacked, attached on any of their four sides and disassembled. The connections are made with bolted joints, so there is no need of welding for its assembly.
  • The metal structure of our modules is basic to assess their quality and durability. Our quest is to develop a product of the greatest simplicity possible. For this purpose, we have two aspects that set our manufacturing guidelines. On the one hand, the rental market, which requires the module to be robust, since it is going to be subjected to continuous loading and unloading. On the other hand, the export market, where we need a portakabin easy to assemble, even by people without any previous experience. A balance is needed between optimizing space in the container and ease of assembly, as transport has an impact on the final price.
  • The basic structure consists of two U-shaped laminated profiles and OMEGA galvanized steel straps placed transversally achieving major stability supporting vibrations and heavy load.
  • The roof structure is made of galvanized, folded or profiled profile. Due to its design, the roof structure serves also as the water collection gutter and the support to fix the roof and façade panels.
  • The columns are made of structural steel tube profiles. They can be joined by simply screwing to the base and roof structures.
  • The fixings or joints between the base frame, the columns and the cover are bolted, and do not require any welding.
  • In the case of standard modules, a water resistant plywood is placed over the metal straps, covered with grey vinyl PVC floor covering Sintasol Traviata. The PVC is glued to the plywood. This finishing of high quality allows brushing.
  • In case of standard modules, the side walls are formed by sandwich panels. Each panel consists of 2 lacquered galvanized steel sheets with a thermal and acoustic insulation medium density rigid polyurethane foam in the middle.
  • As the floor structure, the roof structure is formed by two longitudinal beams, and two transversally of same section, shaped in cold in galvanized sheep. The cover is made by sandwich polyurethane 30mm panels type cover with trapezoidal patterns.
  • The internal divisions are made with sandwich panels of the same characteristics as the ones used in the side walls.
  • As for the carpentry, doors for standard modules are made of sandwich panel 40mm with a white aluminium frame. They have security locks. The interior doors are metallic, made up of two sheets of steel with a smooth finish and treated with epoxy paint. The windows are made of extruded aluminium profiles, with a white lacquered exterior treatment. Bay windows are also made of extruded aluminium profiles, with an exterior treatment lacquered in white. Standard windows are made with 4 mm float glass.
  • Regarding plumbing installation, plumbing system is complete except for water input and sewage system up to the septic tank. The bathroom installations consist of multilayer polyethylene pipes with its accessories and hydraulic siphon. Those are connected with the special adhesives achieving a perfect water tightness. The standard bathroom accessories are made of white porcelain. For the standard installation we propose: porcelain toilet with low tank; porcelain washing basin with a support, a single tap for both hot and cold water and mirror; porcelain shower tray; and electric water boiler with steel tank.
  • All the electrical system and installations are adapted to the safety requirements of low voltage. Electrical supply is connected to the electrical box with an independent protection via magneto-thermal switches and switches necessary for lighting, emergency devices (in case of having ones), air conditioning and other uses. The box is protected against the direct and indirect contacts, overcurrent or short circuit.


Europa Prefabri just completed the installation of parking shades at Barcelona Airport.

Our company has installed parking shades to cover in total 282 parking spots at El Prat Airport.

The project involves the installation of 238 new parking shades, as well as the assembly of another 240 spots with reused material. Our client, Asfaltos y Construcciones Elsan, had previously dismantled the reused parking shades. Furthermore, we installed 4 spots of our “celosia” vintage model.

The parking shades installed are simple spots of our Europa Model A. One of the advantages of this model, is the possibility to dismantle the canopies. The structure is bolted so it is easier to dismantle the canopies and change their location if needed in the future.

The spans of the installed canopies are painted in color cream, as well as the roof, lacquered in the same color. The steel straps, in this case, have been galvanized.

Below we detail the models installed at Barcelona Airport:

The pedestrian walkway canopy will connect the bus parking lot with Terminal 1 at the airport

At Europa Prefabri we have always been concerned about the protection of vehicles from weather conditions, without forgetting, of course, the protection of pedestrians. That is why we have designed a pedestrian walkway canopy to protect users of surface car parks during their transfer from its vehicle to the airport building. Our goal is to provide comfort to users while they move to the gate with luggage, bags, baby pushchairs, etc.

Once again, the company Padecasa has counted on us and has trusted us for the installation of a pedestrian walkway canopy in the bus parking area of Terminal 1 of Madrid Bajaras Airport.

We have covered 163 linear meters of walkway with a polycarbonate cover. The walkway covers the entire path so that users can move more comfortably from the bus parking lot to the terminal entrance, avoiding direct exposure to rain, wind and solar radiation.

The airport provides to its users all the facilities they need to start their holidays, business trips or family visits in the best possible way. To this end, they decided to install parking canopies developer by Europa Prefabri, including the models listed below:

Parking canopies for airports:

pedestrian walkway canopy

  • Design, transport and assembly of parking canopies for Madrid Barajas Airport: 1.300 parking spaces, on which we previously carried out the dissembling of more than 1.200 spaces and the cleaning of the area.

We also assembled three special parking canopies to cover the entrance and exit barriers of the parking, as well as another special canopy to cover the ATM.

  • We carried out the design and installation of 1.200 parking canopies for San Javier Airport at Murcia. In this case, our client chose the “OLA” model.

Portable buildings and modules for Point P in France | Europa Prefabri

Europa Prefabri has carried out a new modular construction project in France. On this occasion, we have designed and manufactured two portable buildings and two prefabricated modules for a Saint-Gobain Group company that are located in the Paris area.

This is a project with special characteristics, in which the design of the portable buildings has been adapted to the customer’s needs. Taking into account the use that the client will give to the constructions, the materials and the level of insulation have been adapted to the applicable thermal regulation (RT2012).

The portable buildings are composed of two prefabricated modules measuring 6.00×2.40m each. Its internal height has been increased to 2,700mm. In addition, we will also provide a ramp to access the buildings as well as an entrance canopy. In compliance with French regulations on retail spaces, the ramp and access door have been designed in accordance with the requirements for people with reduced mobility.

Technical Features: Portable buildings and modules for Point P

portable buildings

Floor structure

The main floor structure of the portable buildings is composed by galvanized sheet profiles of 2.00 mm thickness shaped in cold. Transversally, Omega straps are placed, providing more stability to the floor for facing vibrations and charges. The straps support an 18 mm thick phenolic plywood board covered with grey vinyl PVC floor covering Sintasol Traviata 6026 (grey).

For insulation, we have placed sandwich polyurethane panels of 100mm thickness between the straps and the plywood.

The entire floor supports loads of 250 kg/m2 using, uniformly distributed.

Roof structure

The roof structure frame in the modular building is formed by 2 vertical and 2 horizontal galvanized profiles of 2.00 mm thickness shaped in cold. OMEGA galvanized steel straps are placed transversally. These Omega steel straps support a trapezoidal galvanized metal sheet of 5 notches with the thickness of 0.6mm attached to the profiles by means of self-threading screws with washers.


The columns are formed by asymmetric galvanized steel profiles shaped in cold of 2.00mm thickness. The columns are screwed to the floor structure and roof structure using special screws. There is a round PVC pipe with the diameter of 75mm serving as a gutter hidden in the interior of the column. The column is finished on its interior with a lacquered sheet that fastens the electrical mechanisms, plugs, switches and electric protection panel.

Lateral enclosure

The side walls are formed by PUR sandwich panels 80mm thick. Each panel consists of 2 lacquered galvanized steel sheets with a thermal and acoustic insulation polyurethane layer in the middle. The polyurethane is injected with a density of 40 kg/m3.

The thermal transmission coefficient is K=0,44 Kcal/m2 h ºC. In terms of fire resistance, this kind of panel is classified as M2 material.

False ceiling

The false ceiling is formed by galvanized and pre-lacquered metallic blades in white silicone polyester (0.5mm thickness). Between the false ceiling and the roof plate, we placed a double 80+80mm insulation fiberglass blade with vapour barriers.


In order to guarantee compliance with thermal insulation requirements and avoid heat loss, for all the windows and glazed panels we used double glass with an air chamber 4+4/16GAS/4+4, assuring thermal break.

Electrical installation

The electrical installation system is complete except for the electrical line up to the location of the module. All the electrical system and installations are adapted to the safety requirements.

Electrical supply is connected to the electrical box with an independent protection via magneto-thermal switches and switches necessary for lighting, emergency devices (in case of having ones), air conditioning and other uses. The box is protected against the direct and indirect contacts, over current or short circuit.

Transport and assembly

We transported the prefabricated modules already assembled in order to facilitate on site installation. Due to the height of the modules, the use of special transport was necessary. Access ramps and entrance canopies were supplied disassembled.

Modular construction: the construction solution for companies

Modular construction is considered to be the business building solution, offering great advantages over traditional construction.

We have always heard the saying “time is money” and today more than ever it is an inexorable premise for companies.


Modular construction reduces completion time up to an 50% with regard to traditional construction  allowing further reduction of financial costs of the projects.

As it is a complete finished building, in the case of individual modules as well as in the case of modular buildings, its assembling can be made in a short time compared to traditional construction or other industrialized systems.


The fact of realizing most of the productive process in a controlled ambiance at the factory, allows us to offer a lower and competitive price, avoiding further increases caused by unforeseen circumstances that are common in traditional construction.

Other main advantage of this system is the necessity of a minimal founding. All the modules are self-supporting and the floor structure allows them to be placed on simple supports, even made out of wood.


Modular construction has a great flexibility, which allows it to adapt to the client’s need in every circumstance.

This versatility is shown in different areas. Firstly with the possibility of assembling the individual modules or modular buildings vertically or horizontally. Secondly, the availability of the products for sale or rent. Lastly, with the possibility of adding or removing modules according to the temporary or permanent needs of the company.

This versatility allows the modules to have multiple applications.


Europa Prefabri is environmentally engaged, that is why our products are recyclable and can be dismantled. Industrialized construction allows a more efficient use of resources, by reducing toxic emissions and generating less waste.


Industrialized construction in factory allows applying different quality controls in the production process, benefiting labour risk prevention by working on safer environments. On the other hand, it allows having a total control on the product manufacturing.


Each customer is unique and has specific needs. The versatility of modular construction allows us to adapt our products to each customer, customizing the dimensions, distribution, materials and finishing of the constructions.


We use innovative light materials that can have better levels of thermal and acoustic isolation and energy efficiency compared to traditional constructions.

A completely finished steel structure that consists of a floor-structure, a ceiling structure and pillars, each of them with its independent structural elements, compose prefabricated modules.


All modules can be easily transported, completely assembled in trucks, but also disassembled or in KIT (Flat-Pack system), which allows us to transport several modules in one truck or sea container, reducing transportation costs.

The design of our modules enables to assemble and disassemble them easily, even by personnel without any previous experience, thanks to the instructions and videos we provide.
