You may wonder why you would design, build and then Hire a Temporary Building? Businesses are developing successfully more through finding cost-effective alternatives to standard practices. Investing money in premises and warehousing is a costly commitment and having the initial capital isn’t always possible.
Who Knows What the Future Brings…
Even an established and longstanding business can have its ups and downs, as industry, regulatory and financial institutions can impede success. What may appear as a promising and foreseeable triumph in gaining new clients, partners and investors to a business, can also have its unanticipated qualms or unpredictable events. Investing significant capital in building and increasing business space can leave a large dent in the bank balance and may not be as good an asset as expected in the long-run. Building on site requires a huge amount of project management, substantial costs and drawn out planning permission.
Why Hire a Temporary Building?
Many companies are now choosing the option to hire a temporary building instead of building on site. A temporary building does not need foundations to build on. Instead, it can be constructed on a hard surface quickly and efficiently, being an ideal solution for business expansion. Building a permanent structure on site can take months if not years of planning and will often exceed the initial planned budget. Planning consent and building regulations are also an additional headache for a business which should be focusing on ‘business as usual’ instead of the panic of creating extra space quickly. Successful businesses will undoubtedly at some point need to expand their premises, often because of an increase in manufacturing, warehousing, storage or distribution. For a company to hire a temporary building is an obvious solution that is quick, does not require huge expense and promises to be adaptable to the future of the business. Temporary buildings are designed to last up to around 30 years, so they are durable and long-lasting.
A change or increase in business logistics can require adaptions and alterations to be made by a company and can often be needed quickly. For example, if the company is manufacturing new products, it may need extra space for more machinery, more storage and warehousing space. An increase in distribution may require more warehousing or even taking on a major client, may mean there is more requirement for the demand of assembling products. Choosing to hire a temporary building may be the perfect solution to short-term warehousing, ensuring that the long-term costs are not an influence for what could be a short-term need.
What Are Temporary Buildings Used for?
Temporary buildings are used throughout various industries as a solution for space and warehousing. Because the structures are strong, long-lasting and easy to construct, they are a good alternative and are usually the best solution for any business:
- Supermarkets and Garden Centres
- Warehousing and Storage
- Distribution Companies
- Car Sales and Showrooms
- Logistics and Transport
- Seasonal Space
Why is Hiring Cost-Effective?
When you hire a temporary building, you are reducing the potential costs that would be needed for building a permanent structure on site or for moving your business to another premises:
- Flexibility: You can hire a temporary building from 3 months to 30 years. Contracts are flexible so if you need the structure for longer than expected, then the contract can easily be amended.
- Cheaper Than Building or Moving Premises: With all the additional costs of building on site, hiring a temporary building is evidently cheaper. It also avoids some regulatory requirements which may delay building.
- Easy & Quick: Choosing to hire a temporary building means it is only a matter of a few weeks from when you make the decision to the construction of the building. It is a quick and easy solution for extra space.
- Affordable: Hiring a temporary building is far more affordable than building your own structure on site, avoiding planning costs, the appointment of a building company, initial outlay costs and any additional unexpected expenditures.
The Process of Hiring a Temporary Building
Instead of waiting months or years until you have a good solution for extra warehousing or storage space, the process of hiring a temporary building is extremely workable. When you choose to hire a temporary building, you are assigned a project manager who will work with you to design the best possible structure to suit your requirements. Buildings can be customised to suit your business needs, so whether you need it insulated, non-insulated, UPVC walls or steel panels, loading bays or weather protected, every structure is built specifically to suit your requirements. Once the design is complete and agreed, your temporary building can be constructed within a few weeks. This is a quick and easy solution that requires minimal planning and paperwork, to ensure that your company has the most adaptable and efficient structure to suit the premises and development of the business.
