Many businesses are now choosing to buy temporary buildings and use them instead of more permanent structures, achieving major time and cost savings in the process.
They can do this because, although classed as temporary due to the ability to relocate them, temporary buildings meet the required British Standard for structural safety – BS6399, which means they can withstand the UK’s maximum snow and wind loadings and can therefore be used long-term.
A temporary building isn’t always suitable for long-term use, especially if there is any significant heating in the building. For storage, workshops and warehousing, or just to provide weather protection however there are many examples in the UK of buildings being in situ and still going strong after twenty plus.
If your need is permanent you can purchase a temporary building and used it instead of a more traditional structure achieving huge cost and time savings.
The table below shows how temporary buildings compare with traditional and steel buildings in terms of cost, speed and flexibility.
