Steel framed temporary buildings

The only product on the market which can be temporary, semi-permanent and permanent

This very latest evolution in relocatable buildings is our most environmentally friendly and able to comply with all site-specific fire and energy-efficiency regulations - UK wide

Just like our temporary buildings, this very latest product is totally relocatable, but it is made with a box steel frame rather than aluminium.  This is a far more robust building system enabling side heights of up to 10 metres and spans of up to 60 metres as a Maxi-Space.  They also come with steel cladding which improves insulation, energy, and efficiency rating.

The steel sections increase the fire-rating of the building enabling full compliance with Building Regulations – even when a boundary condition is imposed.

Available for long-term rental contracts using our standard range of sizes or as a Maxi-Space for purchase. The building may be customised with a wide variety of covers, cladding and accessories.

  • It’s made entirely of steel which is far more sustainable and environmentally friendly than aluminium.
  • Incredibly fast and cost-effective to erect and dismantle compared to other permanent buildings.
  • Almost unlimited side heights and span widths for literally any application.
  • Available as a Maxi-Space with side heights up to 12metres and spans of up to 60m.
  • Supplied with a choice of either PVC or steel roof cladding from 0.7m up to 120mm thick for building regulations compliance.
  • If supplied with PVC roof option, they may be erected on any hardstanding surface.
  • Much improved wind stability when compared with aluminium temporary buildings.
  • Easily repairable on-site whilst erected unlike aluminium buildings, steel buildings will bend and not break.
  • The weight-load capacities of the framework provide much improved capacities for internal fitouts such as air-lines, sprinkler systems and suspended ceilings.
  • Best used for production, manufacturing and sales facilities and other applications where people are inside as opposed to basic storage of products.
  • The framework is quickly and easily dismantled and can be re-used.
  • Can be installed within a boundary condition environment to prevent the spread of fire.
  • Local authority approved fire-ratings to minimise hassle and costs to insure.
  • Steel is better for your finances, better for the environment.  Steel is a far more sustainable and cost-effective choice than aluminium.

Cost Considerations

Interim Buildings are relocatable and offer savings in heating or cooling.

Advantages when buying:

  • Extremely cost-effective to heat and cool due to insulation values which can be specified to meet Part L2 standards for energy and efficiency ratings 
  • Cost-effective lighting due to clear roof panels for natural daylight giving minimum 10% coverage 
  • Steel roof option will appreciate with the ground it’s erected on like any other traditional building
  • Framework retains good re-sale values should you ever wish to sell
  • Easily financed through bank or asset finance lending

Advantages when hiring:

  • No capital outlay ahead of installation
  • Cost-effective to heat and cool due to improved insulation
  • Cost-effective lighting due to clear roof panels for natural daylight
  • Tax deductible as plant hire to reduce profits and corporation tax
The following considerations need to be born in mind: 

Whether Hiring or Buying:

  • They depreciate over time with PVC roof option
  • More costly to be relocated than temporary buildings
  • Steel sheet roof cladding option cannot be re-used once installed 
  • More expensive than a temporary building to install due to working at height regulations 
  • Requires a level concrete base
