In Focus: Temporary Workshop Buildings

Outside a temporary workshop structure, a high quality temporary building

Temporary industrial workshop buildings provide a long-term space solution.

Temporary workshops, also known as temporary buildings, are a robust and durable solution for industrial businesses in need of additional workshop space. Whilst the name may include “temporary”, meaning non-permanent, they are high-quality, long-lasting buildings with a life span in excess of 20 years.

An industrial temporary workshop is typically manufactured using corrugated steel sheets as this provides a wide range of benefits.  Other construction materials can be used, for example insulated sandwich panels.  This solution provides a greater level of comfort and thermal performance. 

Temporary workshops have become a preferred choice for various industries including the automotive, waste management and manufacturing sectors. In our latest blog, we focus on the features and advantages of temporary workshops.

Flexible and Efficient Workshop Space

Temporary workshops provide a practical and flexible alternative to traditional buildings for businesses seeking additional workshop space. These structures can be easily modified at specification stage, to accommodate bespoke needs, such as the installation of equipment, doors, and security features.

With their modular design, temporary workshops can be specified in a range of sizes, offering the opportunity to create the ideal workshop environment. Bays are generally 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.

Quick Installation and easy access

One of the primary advantages of temporary workshops is their rapid installation timeframe. Unlike traditional structures that require lengthy design and consultation, including numerous consultants, architects and engineers, Field and Lawn provide a full turnkey service.  Where required we can also support with obtaining planning permission.  Temporary workshops can be set up within a matter of days.  Manufacturing lead times vary from 3-7 weeks.  If you have an urgent temporary workshop requirement, we can install a temporary solution during the manufacturing process.

Furthermore, temporary workshops provide easy access as they can link to existing premises, this enhance  workflow efficiency and overall productivity.

Cost-effective and time-efficient

Temporary workshops are a cost-effective solution compared to building a brick and mortar workshop. The construction industry have seen costs rise significantly with skilled trades people booked up months in advance. Temporary workshops are manufactured off site, using a modular approach.  This means they are made to measure in a controlled factory environment.  

With reduced construction programmes, businesses can save on costs while getting the additional space they need, quickly.

Insulated temporary workshop buildings

Temporary workshops can be manufactured with insulated materials that offer significant advantages.  it is possible to achieve low U-Values.  

If you specify an insulated temporary workshop insulated structures maintain an ambient temperature, making them ideal for workshops that require controlled environments. Whether it’s regulating temperature-sensitive equipment or creating comfortable workspaces for employees, insulated temporary workshops provide the necessary conditions for enhanced performance and productivity.
