Temporary church building

Holy Warehouse - It's A Church!

One of the more unusual inquiries we've received was from Dean Colum Curry of St. Patrick's church in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, who called to ask if we could provide a building to be used as a temporary church - of all things, whilst restoration work takes place to the 19th century church.

And after weeks of consideration and planning, one of our crews has just completed the building, which is now being used for services throughout the week.

The job was made all the more difficult because the car-park where we installed the building has a 2.5m drop over the length of the building, so a steel frame floor was provided to level the surface, and the results are impressive to say the least.

The church has purchased a brand new 35mtr x 15mtr insulated building and ordered double glazed windows along one side, which overlook the convent, and provide natural daylight too.

Another clever use of space is the area underneath the raised end of the building, which is to be used for church council meetings, and is accessed through the door as shown at the bottom of the picture above.

The building has created quite a stir locally and the Northern Ireland press have been involved too, because it's believed this is the first time a temporary 'warehouse' building has been used for this purpose.

Here's just one of a number of press articles we have been sent by Father Curry.

So if there's ever a time when you, or an organisation you know of, needs additional space - for any purpose - let us know and it just may be possible to create the setting you've got in mind.

At a fraction of the cost of building......

Almost anything is possible with a bit of vision, and a lot of planning (which we'll take care of)
