Temporary Buildings are ideal if you have a short-term temporary use from 3 months to 3 years
The roof covers are made of PVC fabric and are designed to slide through the aluminium roof beams to create a water-tight seal. The wall cladding is a steel sheet system in a variety of gauges depending upon insulation requirements.
These are a portal frame system designed using aluminium box profile for the main beams, with steel inserts which connect the roof beams and uprights together to create an A-frame.
Can be secured to literally any ground surface (using either bolts or spikes)
No ground preparation needed ahead of installation
Can be extended or reduced in size, quickly and easily if your needs change
Fast to erect and fast to dismantle
Will even stand on sloping or uneven ground due to the flexibility of the PVC roof system
Very little insulation due to the PVC fabric roof. Check Interim Buildings and Steel Buildings for better insulation options.
Very difficult to stop water ingress around the base without a raised pad or plinth. Check Steel Buildings for better water resistancy options.
Expensive to heat and cool due to the frame design and PVC roof fabric. Interim Buildings and Steel Buildings are cheaper to heat and cool.
The temporary buildings generally cost less than the Interim and Temporary 'HYBRID' buildings because the installation charge is less as there is no working at height regulations to consider. With a temporary building, the PVC textile roof is fitted in a very similar manner to how a sail slides up a mast on a ship.
As in, it slides from one side across the top to the other side through a rail which means the operatives do not have to stand on the roof of the building to fix.
