Feature 1

Temporary Buildings are ideal if you have a short-term temporary use from 3 months to 3 years

Feature 2

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.

Feature 3

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.

CONSIDERATIONS


Consideration 1

Very little insulation due to the PVC fabric roof. Check Interim Buildings and Steel Buildings for better insulation options.

Consideration 2

Very difficult to stop water ingress around the base without a raised pad or plinth. Check Steel Buildings for better water resistancy options.

Consideration 3

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.

Cost Considerations


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.

FINANCIAL ADVANTAGES

Advantages when buying:

  • Can be re-located from site to site to site as often as needed
  • Retain good re-sale values should you ever wish to sell.
  • Very rarely if ever charged rates as it's classed as transient

Advantages when hiring:

  • No capital outlay ahead of installation
  • No maintenance costs when hiring as it's the responsibility of the company who supply it.
  • Can be hired for as little or long as you need on flexible terms
  • Tax deductible as plant hire to reduce profits and corporation tax.
  • No additional base/groundwork costs if it's to be erected on existing ground.

FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • They depreciate in value over time
  • Borrowing from asset finance companies can be tricky due to the portability.
  • PVC roof covers deteriorate over time and should be replaced every 10 years
  • Potential for on-going maintenance issues / costs (Electric roof inflation pumps)
  • Very costly to heat and cool due to the lack of insulation of the PVC fabric roof.
