As companies expand and require more space for warehousing, production and storage, the financial obligation and planning of extra space can be overwhelming and difficult to formulate. It’s inevitable that if business is growing and becoming more successful then there will eventually come a time when you will outgrow your existing premises.
Manufacturing companies may realise that they need more warehouse space, room for additional machinery or a larger space for assembling. Distribution companies may be considering increasing their fleet of vehicles and need a larger space for secure cover and more loading bays. If you are an office based business then you may be increasing your staff levels, needing more space for offices, desks, a reception area or meeting rooms. In addition to this you may need more parking facilities for your staff, or perhaps communal areas for them to use.
Although requiring more space is in fact a positive for any business because it ensures that you are established, it will also need much thought and consideration to fit the needs of the business. Expanding your company could force you to move or change premises which will undoubtedly be a costly demand on the business. It is a time-consuming process that requires months of planning, often processing upfront payments, while still keeping the everyday operations flowing productively. Not only is there a great deal to think about but it’s important to be realistic for the time that it will take and the potential upheaval it will cause. Will you be able to find premises in the near future that are suitable for the business? Will your staff be traveling further to the company site? Have you financially planned for any down payments, deposits, legal fees or increases in business tax? The upheaval of moving your business can have a detrimental effect on production and in turn client relationships, if it is not planned carefully and handled correctly.
What is a Temporary Building?
A temporary building is a structure that is designed especially for your business, so therefore the construction is assembled specifically for your needs. If you need a weatherproof, insulated structure which is a particular size, then choose a temporary building which is bespoke and designed exactly to your requirements. Perhaps your company needs extra warehousing space because business has increased, or maybe you have taken on new staff and need another office block? A temporary building is a quick solution to creating the extra space that you need, without any disruption or distractions to the day to day running of the company. Temporary buildings are regularly used by supermarkets, garden centres, manufacturing companies, storage businesses, commercial firms and farming organisations.
How Could a Temporary Building be an Easier Option?
The benefits of choosing a temporary building compared to building new structures on site or moving to new premises, are the following:
- Temporary buildings do not involve legal costs or advisors.
- A temporary building is a cost-effective way of creating more space.
- Temporary buildings can be adapted and adjusted to suit the company’s current site.
- Temporary buildings can be planned and erected within a couple of weeks.
- A temporary building can be a short-term or long-term solution for more space.
- A temporary building is strong and durable, and just as reliable as a permanent building.
- A temporary building is built to last 30 years.
- Temporary buildings can be rented or bought, making payment options easier.
Deciding how to expand your business premises is completely down to what the company needs at the current time and what their visions are for the future. Having long-term strategies in place is important so that they can meet commercial requirements and avoid any delays in production or manufacturing. Expanding your business premises needs to be fool proof so that every technicality is scheduled, organised and delivered. If you choose to move to larger premises or intend to build additional structures on your current site, financial budgets and planning is crucial and takes time. Requesting a temporary building is a quick solution in providing additional space for the short-term and does not require legal fees or building costs. However, because temporary structures are now so hard-wearing and long-lasting, they can be constructed within a few weeks and remain on site for up to 30 years. If the requirement for more space is a short-term necessity, then a temporary building is an ideal solution.
