Do I need a concrete base for a temporary building?

Unlike some temporary building providers, Aganto don’t require a concrete base to install your semi-permanent building onto, this means you get three key advantages!

1 – Minimised project costs

The whole point of a temporary building is to be flexible. Which means if you don’t have an exiting concrete base in the area you would like your temporary or semi-permanent building – you don’t need to get a concrete slab laid. This keeps costs down but provides other advantages too.

2 – Faster deployment or just more flexibility in location

Without the need for concrete you have more flexibility on where your temporary building can be located, what size you can go for, and how the building can be orientated. Plus you don’t need to have the inconvenience of waiting for disruptive groundworks to be completed.

3 – Zero costs to reinstate

Using an existing surface, means if your temporary building needs to change you’re not left with a permanent reminder of what was once there. Or worse still, the cost to remove if your landlord insisted upon it. One of the key benefits of temporary buildings is they don’t need any ground preparation. Existing hard surfaces can be built on quickly and easily with minimal disruption during the process.

Your ground doesn’t even need to be perfectly flat!

Any existing surface can be used, so long as it works for your temporary building application – we have installed many temporary buildings on bumpy slopes, which worked perfectly for the job it needed to do.

How does hardstanding compare with concrete?

Using heavy duty toggle anchors on any hardstanding will provide the same structural-engineer satisfying anchorage as a nice new dual-mesh C40 concrete slab.
