How can a temporary warehouse building be used long-term?
It might be difficult to understand how a temporary warehouse can be used long-term, but they do actually meet the required British Standards for structural safety and are therefore a viable alternative to a permanent warehouse building.
Businesses that have opted to use temporary warehouse buildings as a permanent solution are benefitting from a fast, economical and flexible solution that in no way compromises functionality or quality. The ‘fast’ comes from a build process that takes under a week, the ‘economical’ stems from the fast build process and simple modular design and the ‘flexible’ stands for the various financial packages you can choose from including hire, purchase and buy-backs.
Why not build a new warehouse building?
Although no building can be considered as strong and durable as a permanent structure, they do unfortunatley drain finances, takes months to design and build and are a binding commitment that is hard to get out of if business declines.
You could argue that you would still face this problem with a temporary building, but that’s not the case. A temporary warehouse building is easy to dismantle, remove and install elsewhere, meaning that if the building is no longer needed, most suppliers offer a buy-back clause, or you can sell it on yourself to a third party.
A new kind of warehouse building for a new kind of economy?
So, maybe the new economy would benefit from a new kind of warehouse building that ensures business continuity and success at a fraction of the cost, time and commitment associated with a more traditional building.
