We were approached by the client who was looking to create additional production and storage area due to expansion of their current business. Having taken over an additional industrial unit on the esate where they’re based, they still needed yet more space to accommodate growth.
The local authority were reluctant to grant planning permission for a temporary building with a PVC fabric roof because they felt it would not be in keeping with the other buildings which occupy the industrial estate.
Also, due to the fact this area is to be used for production as well as storage, the company’s representative wanted the additional insulation properties of the steel roof, due to the anticipated heat loss and cost of using PVC. With their yard being a modern level concrete base, it was a fairly simple and straightforward process to supply one of our Re-locatable ‘INTERIM’ buildings, without any additional ground preparation required.
And given the company have signed a five-year rental contract for this particular building, there was no capital outlay, and they also reserve the right to buy the building at depreciated rates in the future.
So all in all, they have had the best possible outcome. A brand new building which has all of the performance qualities of a permanent building, without the capital cost and none of the delays associated with building.
