Speed:

We can provide a price for your new warehouse in 24 hours giving you an accurate budget cost to help you plan.  Once delivered to your site, we can install the new structure in as little as 4 days, without significant disruption or downtime.

Due to our temporary warehouses being engineered off-site we can control quality during every stage of the process. Given that they are designed specifically for your location, temporary warehouses last for years, offering safe and reliable storage. Furthermore, they are backed by a robust warranty and comply with UK Building Regulations.

Cost:

They are in face around 70% cheaper to build than a traditional warehouse building. Moreover, our temporary and semi-permanent buildings don’t require foundations, expensive Architects or design consultants.  Additionally, we provide the design drawings based on your specifications within the price.

Adaptability:

If you require a short-term storage solution, you can rent a temporary warehouse in order to manage seasonal peaks or new contracts. Due to their modular construction, a temporary building can be easily extended, re-configured or relocated to a different site if your storage requirements change.

Temporary Warehouse Buildings: A Flexible Storage Solution

We offer a wide range of temporary buildings, storage structures as well as canopy shelters. These flexible, adaptable solutions will help your business meet any storage challenges.

Temporary buildings are built with engineered modular components that are assembled and installed on-site.  They are generally constructed in “bays” which provide the length. These are also 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 every requirement.

Types of temporary storage buildings

Overall the most popular types of warehouse buildings we provide include:

A temporary warehouse:

Our most popular and flexible modern warehouse structure can be provided as an insulated, part-insulated or non-insulated building.  It can be manufactured to your bespoke size requirements and completed with a solid range of options, such as doors, racking, full building management systems and lighting.

Steel warehouse buildings:

This industrial warehouse structure will provide a robust and durable storage building solution. Our industrial steel buildings are most commonly used as overflow storage, with this purpose in mind they create a weatherproof and secure steel warehouse structure. Consequently it will be suitable to store and protect stock, raw materials or house machinery such as packing and bailing machines.

Loading bay canopy shelter:

If you are looking for covered shelter, loading canopy or a lay down space for pallets, goods or materials a canopy shelter will generally be an ideal option to create covered space. The shelter can also be integrated into an existing building, used as a standalone shelter and can be open sided or open ended.

Industrial storage to super-insulated options

With all of the above options, we offer various types of insulation and finishes for our temporary warehouses in order to cater to your specific storage requirements. Insulation can be provided through cladding and various roof insulation options.

Insulated Temporary Buildings for Cold Storage:

Engineered for projects demanding the highest level of insulation and building performance

  • Ideal for medical/pharmaceutical, food, and agricultural produce storage.
  • Operates within controlled temperature ranges to maintain product quality.

Ambient Storage:

  • Offers dry, clean, well-ventilated storage at room temperature.
  • Suitable for all types of product storage and certain perishables.

Non-insulated structures:

If you simply need covered space, a non-insulated structure offers cost effective, dry and weatherproof storage.  It can be specified with industrial grade PCV walls, or steel cladding.  These structures are suitable for applications where insulation is not a priority such as industrial warehousing. 

Why Consider Temporary Warehousing?

It’s important to remember that these structures are engineered to stand the test of time. While they are referred to as “temporary” they can be in place for over 20 years.  They provide many advantages over a permanent building,

  • Seasonal storage: Prepare for seasonal sales spikes, especially in the lead-up to events like Christmas.
  • Expansion: Secured a new contract or looking to grow without moving locations?
  • Integration: Our buildings can be easily integrated with your existing building without disruptive building alterations or the stress and inconvenience of off-site storage
