Temporary building increases manufacturing capacity

10m x 10m x 4m





The Requirement

Our client required more space to meet growing demand.  They had a small area of land just outside their main warehouse and fabrication centre and needed a fully insulated structure RAL colour matched to the existing building.  The new fit-out and manufacturing facility will streamline their operations by optimising production timelines and improving productivity.  

The Solutions

F&L temporary buildings designed and installed a bespoke 10m x 10m x 4m structure, with a roller shutter door and pedestrian door for access. The building is fully insulated and clad with a thermally efficient 60mm sandwich panel.  


The panels have been specially manufactured in a RAL colour requested by the client to blend in with the existing building.  An insulated, inflated PVC roof and rainwater gutters have been specified to complete the structure.  For anchoring, resin anchors were drilled into the concrete base.  Like all temporary structures, this is an efficient and cost-effective installation as no complex foundations were required. 


The structure was installed in just five working days!
