Flexible industrial space, for manufacturing and production quickly installed on the most flexible terms

Having the flexibility to increase or reduce your manufacturing and production capacity as business fluctuates will make a huge difference to the performance of your business. 

We offer 4 basic building design solutions to meet your requirements.  Each is best suited to differing needs, so you may need some advice on the very best option for you. 

Temporary industrial buildings

These easily relocatable temporary buildings often referred to as industrial tests give you the quickest and easiest way to increase your capacity in the short and medium term.  They are highly affordable, but as insulation is limited, they can be more expensive to run if you need heating for people working in them.

Insulated industrial buildings

These are almost as quick to install as our tents but are made to order from stock.  The key benefit is improved insulation, ideal if people are to work there.  This provides a more comfortable working environment, and lower running costs.  So, if you are looking for temporary production or manufacturing space this may well be the best option.

Steel industrial buildings

Our steel industrial buildings are almost as quick to erect as our insulated buildings but made to full L2 compliance with full fire rating.  These permanent factory buildings as a cost-effective alternative to bricks and mortar when you are looking for a permanent solution to your manufacturing and production space needs.

Clear span industrial buildings

Our new Maxi-Space buildings allow you to install an industrial factory or manufacturing site under a single span roof. Buildings with a single clear span of 60m with infinite length and a clear working headroom of 12m are possible.  They may also be installed with mezzanine floors.

Whatever your industrial building needs we have the solution for you.
