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.

Another way to ask this question could be ‘how long can temporary buildings be used for’? And, it’s a question we get asked a lot.
For the majority of time customers can hire a temporary building for the exact period they need it, creating a solution that precisely matches budgets and operational needs.
Sometimes though, hire terms can be too short or too long to prove cost-effective. And, in other situations they may start at six months and run on for six years plus, or become an outright purchase.

For anyone outside the rail industry, the question of how temporary buildings can enable undercover maintenance on trains is of little consequence. For those who do need an answer to this question, it can be a problem because the cover needs to go over the railway track. Similarly, any large static machinery that needs protection will need the cover to be built over and around the equipment as the usual method of moving the machinery once the building is in place, isn’t an option.
This is where temporary maintenance buildings really come into their own, providing the installation technique of a clear-span tent, but the strength and durability of an industrial permanent building. Continue reading
