Temporary Retail Building FAQs

Have a question about our temporary commercial buildings? Whether it's about Installation, heating products, or rental options we've answered some of our most commonly asked questions.

Can a temporary commercial building be heated?

Absolutely! At Aganto, we offer a variety of HVAC solutions so your customers can enjoy shopping in comfort. We can even provide professional installation and maintenance services. When specifying your temporary retail space, you can choose varying levels of insulated cladding for when the temperature inside your commercial building needs to remain warm or cool creating the perfect environment to store your goods. Read more about our HVAC and insulation options here.

How quickly can a temporary retail space be installed?

Unlike permanent structures, which can take months to plan and construct, temporary buildings provide rapid installation to expand your retail space quickly. A typical temporary retail space from Aganto can be installed in around 7 days, allowing you to begin using your structure within just weeks. This makes them ideal for use as emergency space should your existing retail building become damaged or require maintenance.

Aganto successfully installed a temporary retail building for Waterways Garden Centre following damage to the existing retail centre caused by heavy snowfall. Read more about the project here.

What are the rental options for a temporary commercial building?

Whether you need your retail building short-term for emergency space or require a longer-term solution for a semi-permanent store, we can help. At Aganto, our rental contracts start from just three months so you can get the space you need when you need it. With significantly reduced monthly payment plans hiring a temporary retail space could be the perfect option for your business. If your temporary building becomes an essential part of your business after this time, we can easily extend your rental agreement or even give you the option to buy! Learn more about our rental options here.

How are temporary retail buildings installed?

Aganto temporary retail buildings can be installed on a wide range of surfaces including concrete, tarmac and hardcore meaning that foundation work is generally not required. Your temporary commercial space will be surface mounted to the existing hard standing using chemical resin, or toggle anchors depending on the surface type. All cladding on Aganto structures slots easily into channels that are engineered into the framework of your building to avoid the need for multiple fixings.
