The project that required a prefab distribution warehouse was a UK site where contaminated railway siding needed to be transformed into a fully operational Rail Fleet Distribution Centre – quickly, economically and adhering to the very stringent safety and PPE requirements specific to the rail industry.

The main contractor on the project considered several temporary building contractors. HTS secured the contract based on a proven history of Rail projects, a long-established working relationship with the actual customer and the fact they are the primary manufacturer within the temporary buildings’ industry.


Before any work on the prefab distribution warehouse could begin, Land Recovery Ltd needed to uncover and remove the 16.225 tons worth of bund material and waste including concrete, timber, tyres and asbestos. Once the site was cleared work began on the concrete base. The distribution warehouse built onto the prepared site was manufactured to the following specification:

  • 1 x LT Insulated Distribution Warehouse 20.00m x 50.00m x 6.00m
  • 1 x electric roller shutter door, 3 x personnel access doors
  • 40mm insulated composite wall panels
  • External guttering and down-pipes
  • Thermo roof – industrial grade, air-filled white PVC coated fabric
  • Build time – 7 days


What was an unused, hazardous site full of waste material became a fully operational Distribution Centre in just over two months.

With the previous extensive experience of Rail industry projects and a clear understanding of the safety requirements, HTS were probably the only temporary building contractor who could have worked to such a tight schedule.

Coupled with the experience and expertise was the quality of product – a brand-new, manufactured to order premium temporary warehouse, delivered and installed by HTS, at factory direct prices and complete with full warranties on the workmanship, frame and components.
