Winter Storage: Can you install a temporary building in the winter?

Winter is gripping the UK and businesses are grappling with the need for secure and weather-resistant storage solutions. There is a solution that can save time, money and stress when traditional construction projects often face challenges during the colder months.  This includes project disruption from bad weather, material delays’ labour shortages and simple logistics. In this comprehensive blog post, we will delve into why temporary buildings are one of the best choices for expanding on-site capacity during winter. 

Unlocking the power of temporary building solutions

Temporary buildings, with their flexibility, value for money and rapid installation, are versatile solutions for businesses who need more space.  Be that additional storage options, manufacturing capacity or workshop space. Our robust structures offer a wide range of flexible solutions. The versatility of temporary buildings makes them an ideal solution for businesses seeking extra space in the colder winter months and throughout the year.

Winter-Ready storage buildings

Temporary storage buildings play a pivotal role in addressing the challenges posed by winter weather. Their robust design can withstand heavy snow and wind loads, providing a secure environment for stock and materials or shelter for loading and unloading.  Our temporary buildings are completely customisable and additional security, lighting and heating can be specified.

Things to consider for planning additional warehouse capacity

Temporary building installation speed

If you are looking to install a temporary building in the winter, you will be pleased to know that they can be installed all year round. Unlike traditional building projects, they are more resilient to bad weather during the installation process. This means the winter won’t slow your project down.  In fact, it typically takes just 4-5 working days to install a temporary building, compared to several months for a permanent structure.

Why are temporary buildings so quick to install?

Temporary buildings are renowned for their rapid installation and the key to this efficiency lies in the innovative approach of using modular pre-manufactured components. This method contrasts with the traditional construction techniques, resulting in significantly faster project timelines and reduced on-site disruption.

Off-Site manufacture of modular building components:

In temporary building construction, the majority of components are pre-manufactured in a controlled factory environment. This off-site approach allows for a precise and streamlined production process, while focusing on quality at every stage. This controlled environment minimizes the impact of weather conditions, ensuring that production remains uninterrupted regardless of external factors.

Reduced labour and disruption:

Traditional construction methods typically involve a considerable amount of on-site labour, from foundation work to finishing. In contrast, temporary buildings arrive at the site already manufactured and ready for installation. Our in-house installation teams can work quickly through the winter months to install a temporary building.

Precision and quality control:

Off-site manufacture in a factory allows for precise control over the quality of each component. Advanced technologies and quality assurance processes ensure that every piece meets the required standards. This level of precision is often challenging to achieve consistently with traditional on-site construction, where external factors such as weather and manual work can introduce variability.

Transportation efficiency:

Pre-manufactured modular components are designed for efficient transportation to site. The compact nature of these components reduces the need for large, specialized transportation methods. This contrasts with the transportation challenges often faced in traditional construction, where the delivery of large quantities of raw materials can be logistically complex. Generally, our deliveries will be on one articulated lorry. 

Waste

Temporary buildings produce very little waste compared to a traditional building.  This is better for the environment and more cost effective as you wont need to hire multiple skips for building waste.  There will also be less noise and dust disruption compared to a traditional build process. 

Temporary building structures: Flexibility and efficiency

Temporary buildings are renowned for their flexibility, providing a quick and disruption-free installation process. With a modular design, we can provide a fully bespoke building designed to your businesses needs.  The flexibility of temporary structures also extends to the option of renting, offering businesses an additional layer of adaptability based on their storage requirements.

Insulated buildings: Ensuring optimal comfort and performance

For businesses facing extreme winter conditions, insulated temporary buildings become a crucial asset. These structures, designed to meet all relevant building regulations, offer protection against heavy snow loads and freezing temperatures. The ability to fully or partially insulate these buildings ensures optimal comfort and performance, safeguarding valuable stock from the harsh winter weather.

Planning Permission and building regulations

One of the notable advantages of temporary buildings is the streamlined design process. In most cases, an Architect is not required as we can help you design your storage building. This accelerates the project timeline, allowing us to get on with manufacturing and installing your building without costly consultants or delays. Temporary buildings comply with building regulations, ensuring safety, even in regions prone to heavy snowfall or strong costal winds.

Under the strain for extra storage space? Rapid warehouse building solutions

Transform your on-site storage in just 4-6 weeks

Are you looking for a storage unit or warehouse storage for your business? There are a range of options to increase storage capacity both on site and off site.  Matthew Cassidy is an expert in helping business increase their capacity through temporary buildings. In this latest article he shares expert insight into how you can quickly and efficiently install extra space on your site with a temporary building.

Firstly, why are they referred to as temporary buildings?

Temporary buildings are demountable, modular structures, meaning they can be moved, extended or relocated quickly and easily.  They offer both a short and semi-permanent solution to providing additional space at speed. Temporary does not mean that they are poor quality.  Our buildings comply with all UK Building Regulations and are engineered to stand up to the tests and strains of any industrial application.

Unsure of how much storage space you will need?

Most businesses wanting safe and secure warehouse storage solutions require storage units that provide a building footprint of around 200m2 and upwards. This is an ideal size of a quick and simple storage building.  However, a temporary building can be custom designed to any size, giving you the space you need, exactly where you need it.  These robust structures are perfect if your business uses pallets, has large quantities of stock or large items. 

The benefit of modular warehouse building solutions, is that you can expand the space (or contract it) over time if your storage requirements change.  Another option would be a short or medium term rental option if your space requirements will change. For maximum efficiency, our modular structures are manufactured in 5m bays so it makes sense to work in 5m increments to reduce waste.
 

Things to consider for planning additional warehouse capacity

Nobody knows your business as well as you.  However, I would recommend considering the bulk of the product, the shelf life, the average production run or quantity, If there is seasonality. Do you operate just in time or is your storage requirements for perishable goods, the list could go on. 

I would be more than happy to visit your site and share some insight and advise. Once you know the size you need, we can work on a building design, our in-house team can supply a design in 48 hours.  This will include structural calculations and wind loading.

Can you extend a temporary warehouse?

We would all love to have a crystal ball, but in reality it is hard to accurately forecast your future storage requirements.  A temporary warehouse can be extended due to their modular construction it is easy to add modules to extend either an existing temporary warehouse or create an extension for an existing warehouse. 

What is the manufacturing lead time of a modular warehouse building?

We often get asked, how quickly can we install a warehouse building? The manufacturing lead time does vary from project to project but there are a few ways we can speed things up. Firstly, we can offer a wide range of rental options for your temporary warehouse building.  If we have the components in stock, we can get them delivered within days.  If we are looking at a bespoke build, for an average size warehouse building solution, we can manufacture the building in weeks to your specification. 

Construction and installation: Do you need a warehouse building fast?

Rather than traditional warehouse construction, our temporary storage buildings are simply installed. The installation process is very efficient and we can install a building solution in a matter of days.  As the structure is manufactured off site, there is very little disruption, noise, mess or down time during the install.

What are temporary storage buildings?

If you are looking for a quick and easy solution to increase storage space, look no further than a temporary building! Temporary only by name; they are de-mountable, modular structures that allow you to easily add extra space in pretty much any environment or location. 

Temporary buildings are quick to install and are being used by a growing range of sectors, including; manufacturing, retail, logistics, industrial, education, commercial, agriculture, and sporting venues for additional on-site storage capacity. They are semi-permanent, ultra-durable structures with a long lifespan of in excess of 20 years.

A temporary warehouse building from Field and Lawn can be installed on almost any ground surface, without the need for foundations. Furthermore, they are tough, durable and designed for all year round use, providing the perfect solution for your temporary warehousing requirements.  Therefore, a temporary building provides a compelling alternative to costly and time consuming traditional buildings.  They also offer many advantages to renting storage space off site

Types of temporary warehouse buildings

There are many types of temporary warehouse buildings, the three most popular solutions include:

1. Insulated buildings: 

If you have a sensitive storage requirement or will have members of your team working from the warehouse, an insulated building will provide high levels of comfort.

What are the main differences between a temporary warehouse structure and a fabric structure?

A storage marquee does share some similarities with a temporary building as they are easily installed, removed and relocatable.  That’s where the similarities end. 

A temporary building is hardwearing, long lasting, highly durable structure. Temporary buildings can be in place for up to 50 years. The structure is assessed by engineers to ensure wind and weather loading to provide a long-term solution. The key differences include:

Material: Marquees are typically made of fabric or other flexible materials, while temporary buildings generally have insulated steel clad sides with additional insulation in the roof. A range of doors, glazing and heating and cooling options can be installed in a temporary building.

Size and shape: Temporary buildings can be larger and more customisable in terms of size and shape, with multiple access and security options, including wide, secure roller doors. Due to their modular construction, additional space can be seamlessly integrated into a temporary building.

Functionality: Temporary buildings can be used for a variety of long-term purposes. This includes warehousing, secure and ambient storage, office space, classrooms, event spaces, and click and collect facilities, due to their enhanced durability and security.

Why choose a temporary building?

A temporary building will give you much more than a typical storage container could ever provide.  Our temporary storage buildings can be:

> Fully insulated delivering U-Values as low as: 0.18 W/m²K

> Temperature controlled or refrigerated

> Custom designed with glazing, roller shutter doors, loading canopies, link corridors and more

> Fully fitted and partitioned for offices , meeting rooms and everything in between 

A temporary building can be completely specified to your exact requirements, including; data connections, CCTV, internal/external lighting, alarms, access systems, flooring, glazing and racking.

Installing temporary buildings: Expert insight into access doors

Opening the door to better on-site storage and security

One of the key considerations when specifying a new temporary building or semi-permanent structure is access doors. We often get asked about the door and access options available when business are looking to increase their on-site space.  This article will explain the various options when it comes to specifying your new temporary building.

Despite the “temporary” name, these structures are robust, safe and secure.  They can be fully or partially insulated and offer exceptional levels of flexibility due to their modular construction. The good news is that just like a traditional building, there are a wide range of door systems and options to choose from. When it comes to installing temporary buildings, we can provide practically any access door for your exact requirements. 

Access doors for temporary buildings

Temporary warehouse buildings with large access doors

Some of the most common uses for industrial temporary buildings require vehicle access, such as forklift trucks for temporary warehouses or larger plant and machinery for industrial buildings. The most popular access doors for temporary buildings are roller shutter doors. These can be specified as manual or electrically operated roller doors in a range of standard and bespoke sizes.  

Access doors meet all appropriate fire resistance and thermal insulation regulations. Rapid access doors with a shorter response time for applications such as blue light buildings can also be supplied.  Rapid access doors are also great solutions for temporary warehouse buildings where speed and efficiency are key to operational performance.

Pedestrian doors

We supply and fit pedestrian doors with our temporary buildings. These doors can be insulated or non-insulated depending on the use of the building.

Different door systems can be installed such as glazed or double doors, for customer facing buildings. 

industrial access doors used in a temporary building structure

The options include industrial steel doors, UPVC doors, which can be installed in insulated buildings and Glazed doors.  Glazed doors work well for temporary accommodation, welfare facilities and gyms. 

How many doors will I need in my building for fire regs?

The number of doors required for fire regulations in a temporary building can vary depending on the specific regulations and the purpose of the building. Commercial and public buildings are legally required to have more than one fire exit and our team of experts will be able to provide specific guidance on fire safety to help you comply with regulations for your temporary building. Further guidance on installing temporary buildings, specifically emergency evacuation can be found on the government website.

Access for Warehouse buildings

Access control for warehouse buildings is critical for stock security.  A bespoke access control system can be installed in any of our warehouse buildings to prevent unauthorised access.  Moving stock in and around a temporary warehouse building is easy as access doors are large enough to allow access for forklift trucks and other heavy lifting equipment. A 3m x 4m access door will safely accommodate a loaded forklift truck.

Vehicle workshops, maintenance buildings and valeting bays

If you are looking for a maintenance building, temporary workshop or valeting bay, there are a few different access options. We can achieve door heights of up to 5m. Meaning there is sufficient clearance for light vehicles and HGVs to enter the workshop. Valeting bays can be provided as open-ended structures and completed with vehicle and pedestrian doors. A standard, electric 3m x 2.5m door will give enough space for a large family car or SUV. For motorhomes and caravans, larger doors can be created.

Canopies and loading bays

Industrial steel sided canopy structure

These structures offer unrivalled versatility when it comes to loading and unloading goods and materials.  Generally, our industrial canopies and loading bays are open ended to allow for vehicle access. They can also be linked to existing buildings, providing weatherproof area for stock processing or dispatch.  

Keeping your valuable products and staff fully protected from the weather, all year round.  If you link a canopy to an existing structure, it will still be possible to maintain access control and security. We can integrate doors and bespoke openings on all our industrial canopy structures, providing complete flexibility.

building Security and remote monitoring

Finally, there are a number of security solutions that can be integrated into temporary buildings.  From standard key fob entry system to biometric security solutions.  Temporary buildings can be completely specified to maintain site security and access control.  CCTV systems can be added together with security and emergency lighting. Doors can be controlled with smart locks and remote access is possible with the most advanced door entry systems.  

Temporary buildings can also be fully partitioned to allow access to specific areas of the building to keep sensitive and secure areas safe.  Advanced fire detection systems can be integrated into our structures for enhanced safety and security.  

In Summary

We are experts in installing temporary buildings, they can match that of a permanent building when it comes to access controls, safety, fire protection and security.  Our team of experts will be able to help you spec the perfect system for your new temporary building, no matter the use case or location of your building.  Contact us today to get the space you need.

Where Can I Build a Temporary Building?

Find out where you can build a temporary building.

Installation without the inconvenience of building work

Our temporary buildings are manufactured off-site using state of the art processes and the latest manufacturing technology to ensure absolute quality and durability.  This means the approach is more installation than “building” or “construction.” 

Temporary buildings can be installed in a matter of days, without the disruption, inconvenience and cost associated with a traditional building project.  If you have land, we can install the covered space you need on most surfaces and ground types. 

So, where can I install a temporary building?

Temporary buildings use a robust yet lightweight aluminium frame that is usually anchored into the ground. The most common surfaces we install on are tarmac, paving, or an existing concrete base. 

Our temporary structures are engineered to site-specific wind and weather loadings.  This means that even in the most exposed areas, such as seaports, docks and costal locations, expensive and time consuming foundations are not required to secure the structure to comply with building regulations. Whereas, complex foundations would be needed if a traditional building or permanent structure was selected.

In terms of space, we typically need a few metres around the perimeter of the building for access. Temporary buildings can have a small footprint to optimise the space available on your site. 

What base do I need for a temporary building?

The base for a modular building can have a big impact on the bottom line cost to both the project’s budget and overall sustainability.  In principle, we can install a temporary structure on almost any surface without having to install foundations. Pins are used for new or existing concrete. Ground spikes are suitable surfaces such as gravel, tarmac, and paving. High performance resin is used to complete the anchor. 

The optimal base for a temporary building, is a flat surface, concrete pad with level access. However, a solution can be found to install a temporary building in most places.  We can even work around sloping sites and existing obstacles. A temporary structure can also be integrated into an existing permanent building.

The above temporary warehouse example was installed on paving slabs which are a great base for a temporary building. 

If you have an unused tarmacked, or asphalted area available, then in many cases the right place for your temporary building has already been found. Anchoring is only not possible on topsoil, due to the lack of compaction as anchoring on topsoil cannot withstand the tensile forces required.  Our temporary building experts can always engineer a solution to work with your site surface. 

Quality and durability

Temporary buildings are built to last in excess of 20 years. Despite the term ‘temporary’, our buildings have a long life span.  Although they are labelled as short-term, they are solid and long-lasting.  Choosing to have a temporary building means that you can have the extra space in place within a matter weeks, compared to months if not years if it were a permanent building, subject to local authority planning.

Planning permission

Will your budling need planning approval? in most cases, you will need planning approval to install a temporary building.  There are a number of exemptions and we can support with the planning application should it be required for your structure. 

PURCHASE OR RENTAL OPTIONS

Our temporary buildings can be purchased outright or rented over terms that suit your company. They are highly durable, so it may make commercial sense to purchase if your requirements are long term.  You will then own the building and it can be easily re-located to another site if your needs change or your business moves premises. 

We understand that business requirements can change, so we have flexible options to suit your needs. Our manufacturing lead times vary but we keep a range of stock available for immediate and urgent needs.

If you need an immediate solution for extra warehouse space or on-site capacity, then hiring a structure is a flexible way to increase your capacity, without significant upfront expenditure. 

Explore our temporary building solutions

A building revolution: Temporary Building Solutions For Schools

Find out how a temporary building can quickly provide extra space and capacity at your school, college or university.

During the summer holidays, many schools, colleges and universities will use the extended break to undertake essential repairs and maintenance across their sites as well as undertaking significant capital projects like classroom extensions and building upgrades.  As the new school year rapidly approaches, we know all too well that the race to get projects finished in time is on.  Where there is a risk of projects running over, beyond the summer holidays, temporary building solutions for schools can be the answer.

Temporary buildings can help deliver additional space quickly for a range of short and long-term requirements.  We have seen temporary structures used most commonly as gyms, temporary classroom facilities and examination halls.  However, more recently our flexible temporary buildings have been used to create a high quality school dining hall facility for a secondary school in Bedfordshire. 

Case Study: Temporary dining hall for schools

An open plan flexible dining hall facility

A secondary school approached us with a time-critical need to increase dining hall space and capacity on their school campus.  They needed a seamless, well-designed, and cost effective dining space that would provide a warm space for students to eat and relax and enjoy school meals throughout the academic year.  Field and Lawn provided a 10m x 20m temporary school canteen complete with secure glazed doors, lighting, heating and cooling and access ramps. 

“Temporary” only by name

While they may be called “temporary” our temporary buildings are robust and highly durable structures that comply with all UK building regulations.  They are designed to be in place for in excess of 20 years and are re-locatable.  This proves to be a great option for multi academy trusts, that wish to deploy space quickly, where needed to create high quality additional space. 

A temporary school building can be specified to high standards of thermal performance and include everything you would expect from a traditional building such as heating, lighting, security and more. 

Our insulated temporary buildings combine an innovative blend of thermal insulation, robust construction, and patented technology, making them ideal solutions for industries where building performance matters. 

A complete modular building solution

Temporary buildings have been revolutionising the construction industry,  and we have seen first hand how they can help schools approach and solve capacity and space problems.  

Speed of Installation: A modular dining hall can be installed in as little as 5 days!

Cost Efficiency: Modular temporary buildings are in the region of 70% cheaper than traditional brick and mortar buildings.

Reduced On-Site Risk: Temporary buildings are manufactured off site, reducing the risks associated with long-term construction projects on education campuses.

Minimal Disruption: Fewer contractors on-site means minimal disruption around the school site. Lower noise pollution, less mess and far fewer vehicle movements adds to the benefits of temporary buildings.

Lower Up-Front Costs: Unlike traditional building projects, modular builds required lower upfront investment.  A temporary school building can be hired for short term requirements.

Temporary or Semi-Permanent: The versatility of modular temporary buildings means it can adapt to your school’s needs, whether for temporary or semi-permanent use.  They are easily extended if you require additional space.

Get the extra space you need

A prefabricated modular cafeteria, dining room or temporary kitchen will provide your school, college or university, students, and staff with a comfortable, safe environment quickly. Rapid construction, minimal disruption, and reduced risk means you’ll have less hassle getting your new facility up and running compared to opting for a permanent building. 

Flexibility of design offers you the opportunity to get a dining facility that fits your exact requirements to include areas such as kitchens, seating, food preparation, serving and cleaning areas.  Just like a traditional building, our temporary buildings can be partitioned to create the space you need, designed for your bespoke requirements. 

Flexible, temporary spaces for schools

Temporary buildings are a flexible solution that can provide additional on-site temporary space quickly.  Beyond dining halls they have a range of uses for education including classrooms, gyms, sports halls and equipment stores.  Our temporary buildings are designed with student and staff comfort at the heart and are fully compliant with UK Building Regulations.

The Power of Insulated Temporary Buildings: Energy-Efficient Industrial Solutions

Insulated temporary buildings

Enhanced building performance is a key driver for any business. Even though energy costs have started to fall, they remain unpredictable as we head into winter.  In this article, we cover how a temporary building can perform through winter and beyond, providing a safe, cost efficient and quick solution for extra on-site capacity. 

About temporary buildings

While they are classed as “temporary”, these buildings are only temporary by name. They are robust, industrial strength structures that can stand the test of time. They can be in place for over 20 years and can be installed on virtually any ground surface.  Most commonly, they are used for storage buildings, warehouse buildings, welfare facilities, workshops and valeting bays. 

An insulated temporary building provides everything you would expect from a traditional “permanent building”, without the time and cost constraints of traditional construction.  They are modular buildings, which means they can be installed in a matter of days, at short notice, without disruption on your site. They can be:

Fully or partially insulated delivering U-Values as low as: 0.18 W/m²K  

Temperature controlled or refrigerated  

Custom designed to your exact requirements 

Rented over shorter periods to manage peak

Speed

Installed on-site in a matter of days

Durability

Our insulated temporary buildings

As standard, we use a BALEXTHERM insulated wall panel, with 60mm insulated PIR foam. This provides Thermal a insulation of U [W/m2K] – 0.36. Different core thicknesses (80, 100, 120 mm) can be supplied depending on your requirements. However, 60mm is the most common option and provides a good balance between cost and insulation performance. 

Our insulated temporary buildings combine an innovative blend of thermal insulation, robust construction, and patented technology, making them ideal solutions for industries where building performance matters. 

Insulated thermo roof.

In addition to insulated wall panels, thermal performance can be further improved by different roofing solutions. A popular option uses a 3-layer thermally efficient insulation lining that has been patented by our manufacturing partner, Protan Elmark. It features a specialist aluminium layer that traps heat inside the building. An additional fastening system is used to cover the visible frames in the roof area. This prevents the formation of thermal bridges, improving thermal performance. 

Click and collect temporary building

Inflatable roof

Another option is an inflatable roof, which combines two layers of robust PVC fabric with a wall mounted compressor system.  The quiet and efficient system re-cycles the air from outside and inflates the roof.  The fans capacity is 620m3/h.  This forms an insulated air pocket between the two PVC layers.  The pressure range of the air pocket can range between 0.1-0.5 mPa.  The adopted pressure standard is 0.15 MPa, that’s equivalent to approximately 22 psi. 

Anti-condensation Lining

An insulated or part-insulated temporary building will reduce the effects of condensation and maintain a safe and comfortable working environment. An additional interior anti-condensation lining can be installed or retrofitted to improve this even further.  This material is fixed below the actual roof and protects the buildings contents from condensation. The lining is flame retardant and has a material thickness of 500 g/m2.

Hire an insulated building

If you are looking for a short-term temporary structure, you can hire a temporary building.  This means you will benefit from additional space quickly without significant, up front expenditure.  When you rent a temporary building, you can simply return the structure to us, after the rental period.  Or, if you want to keep the building, we offer a purchase option during the rental period. We hold a number of temporary structures in stock at any time.

About Temporary Buildings

A large temporary storage building

The ability to quickly create additional space, with minimal disruption, is one of the key benefits of a temporary building. They can offer many other significant benefits compared to a traditional building. They are generally constructed in “bays” which provide the length. These are typically manufactured in 5m lengths.  Eave heights of up to 10m can be achieved and the span, or width, can reach 40m across.  Larger spans can be achieved by linking buildings together,  or using a steel frame, providing a space solution for everyone.
