The client required a bespoke solution that would allow them to control temperature and humidity within an area of their existing warehouse. As an innovative business, it was important that the temporary building solution was adaptable and well-suited to their needs.

The designated workshop space needed to fit within their existing 40 x 70 x 12m warehouse structure, allowing them to create a temperature and humidity-controlled environment for their work. This meant that insulated roofing and walling were essential to make the structure fit for purpose.


Our area sales manager Paul Watmore visited the site to conduct an initial assessment and propose the best solution to fulfil our client's needs. Following the visit, Paul recommended installing a 15m x 15m structure with a height of 5.2m to fill the space currently available within the warehouse.

The structure featured an insulated roof made up of two translucent plastic-coated membranes, which are inflated with a specially designed air pump once the roof is in place. The constant level of air pressure between the two membranes provides excellent insulation properties, enabling temperature control and dramatically reduced condensation.

The walls of the structure were also made from our 40mm thick insulated steel sandwich cladding, providing a superior level of insulation and temperature control.

The building had several access points, with one electric roller shutter door on the gable elevation and one single pedestrian fire exit door. Additionally, the back of the building was linked to the existing structure through two double doors.

Due to the installation taking place inside the existing warehouse, our team were able to work quickly, installing the building within just days. The Aganto team collaborated closely with the client throughout their time on site to ensure that none of their existing operations were disrupted.

The building immediately provided a space that allowed our client to test and develop their technologies in a secure and temperature-controlled environment. Our in-house industry experts ensure that our clients have a great experience with us. From initial scoping to ongoing maintenance, we strive to provide the best possible solutions on time and within budget.

"We’re really pleased with our temporary structure from Aganto, which enables us to create a climate-controlled area inside our warehouse at a much lower cost than building a permanent space. The structure was delivered quickly, and their install team worked efficiently to complete the build ahead of schedule. The quality of the structure is great, and really exceeded our expectations. They were very happy to adapt with minimal fuss to our bespoke request to install the structure against an existing wall and create an opening over the door. We’re really pleased with how they adapted their standard design to produce a solution that fits our needs, and it looks really professional too."
