Flexibility for challenging times

25 August 2021

WITH SUMMER drawing to a close it is a good time to start preparing for the potentially extreme and unpredictable winter weather with flexible temporary buildings.

Protecting stock and equipment as well as bank balances has never been more critical after the challenges of 2020.

If the weather wasn’t enough, the global pandemic has hit hard causing huge economic uncertainty. Quick reactions to the ever-changing economic and environmental conditions could make the difference between prosperity or failure, but what can you do to stay ahead of the game?

Fast, accurate responses in unpredictable times are essential for business survival: whether that’s fluctuations in demand caused by the pandemic (think back to the great loo roll shortage!) or flooding and storm damage.

Businesses with contingency plans for adverse weather or new Covid restrictions – covering all operational areas -are better equipped to not just recover, but thrive and prosper.

One aspect of contingency planning is to know how you can expand storage and operational space quickly and economically for fast expansion and/or stock protection. This is where temporary buildings come in.

To help minimise the impact of adverse environmental and economic changes, many businesses have turned to temporary warehouse buildings and structures.

Finding storage space in an emergency can be tricky and, if that space ends up being off-site, could present operational and cost challenges. Flexible temporary buildings enable businesses to protect valuable stock from wet weather and react quickly to unexpected events or economic fluctuations with speed and accuracy – all on-site and for minimal cost.

Savings over permanent buildings include no architect fees, reduced labour and equipment costs, simple installation with basic plant machinery. In addition, you can gain value from previously unused land.

A standard medium-sized temporary warehouse can be installed in under a week resulting in a faster return on investment and minimal, if any, disruption to operations during the build

Temporary buildings can be linked together or attached to existing permanent buildings. Available for hire or purchase; any initial capital expenditure can be minimised. Fully relocatable and extendable, purchased buildings can be sold if no longer required.
