Welcome to Our Blog for Temporary Modular Buildings

What will we be writing about?

Quite simply the pros and cons of temporary modular buildings and how using them could help your business. Being knowledgeable and informed of this relatively new concept gives businesses another option to consider when they need more space, over and above the more established solutions of leasing space off site, relocating or investing in a permanent building. Having this knowledge at your fingertips is key to business success and continuity when the need for more space falls quickly and heavily onto your desk.
We will be covering areas such as design and build quality, speed and method of installation, planning requirements, pros and cons against other solutions, whether to hire or buy and much more.

Installation Method for Temporary Buildings

One of the most surprising things about temporary buildings is the remarkably fast and easy installation method. And, the fact that this very simple build technique doesn’t have any impact on long-term use or durability.

What is it that facilitates such an easy installation method and are there other benefits derived from this other than fast on-site space? Continue reading

How Strong are Temporary Warehouses?

A misguided perception of temporary warehouses can sometimes be they are not strong enough for long-term industrial use. Perhaps this is the aluminium ‘tent’ like frame, or the fact they are referred to as temporary, or just misinformation. Whatever leads people to this conclusion, the point is it’s incorrect. Continue reading

Roofing for Temporary Buildings

Modular warehouseThere are various options available to roof a temporary building depending on the level of insulation required. The most common choice is an industrial grade, flame retardant PVC cover. This type of cover can either be single skin for basic cover or a double skinned inflated roof to create better temperature control and minimise condensation. Another option for temporary building roofing is insulated steel composite panels.

Some people can have reservations about PVC roof cover thinking it will not be strong or sufficient enough. This type of cover however has a huge number of benefits and is more than fit for industrial use on a long-term basis. Continue reading

What are Demountable Warehouses

If you’ve never seen a demountable warehouse you might struggle to visualise it, particularly the demountable bit. Meccano for industry perhaps? That’s actually not a bad description, but the reality of demountable warehouses is something even more simpler than a child’s toy, but much more robust, strong and durable. Continue reading

Hire or buy a Temporary Building?

Very often when a business wants to use a temporary building they begin the process by considering hire only. After-all, if you’re thinking ‘temporary’, it’s likely you’re thinking ‘hire’. Often though once businesses start to talk to HTS INDUSTRIAL, they realise the better and most cost-effective option is to buy. Continue reading

You obviously aren’t going to be partying till dawn in an industrial marquee so what would you use one for and when?

Temporary Building Installations

temporary building installations Temporary building installations are a remarkably fast and non-disruptive process; for a standard sized aluminium framed warehouse it is usually under a week. Existing concrete can generally be used without the need for any other ground-works and despite the speed and simplicity these structures can be in situ for ten years and beyond.

For those of you new to temporary buildings and the installation process, one of the best ways to understand it would be to see an installation first hand. This can be tricky to arrange though so the next best thing for a fast and thorough education on temporary building installations is to visit a fully operational building in situ. Continue reading

Modular buildings score low on environmental impact

modular building Modular buildings can vary greatly in terms of size, design, components, materials and applications they are suitable for.  Some are modular boxes that are fully prepared off site and then craned into place on-site, literally ready for use immediately. Others are manufactured off-site in sections.  For modular warehouse buildings, the frames are manufactured in the factory and transported to site where one frame section is erected at a time. The appropriate wall and roof panels are then added.  

Essentially though, what these and most other modular buildings have in common is the majority of the work is done in a controlled factory environment with final assembly on-site.   Continue reading

Temporary storage solutions

Many businesses require temporary storage solutions from time to time. And often quickly. Because of this it’s good to be aware of what the options are and what would be best for your business in a hurry, or worst case an emergency.

What you choose depends on what you are storing and volume, how much spare site space you have available and a preference for and availability of off-site industrial space in your area. Continue reading
