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.
