Additional Storage Building for Rail Infrastructure in Place

a large green temporary storage building with a open loading bay canopy

storage building ready for rail infrastructure project

We were approached by a large Tier 1 construction contractor to supply a storage building to be located onsite at a long term infrastructure project. 

At a Glance…

Size: 15m x 32m on a 5m eave. Total area 270 Sqm. Ridge height of 8.02m
Location: Sutton Coldfield  
Sector: Temporary Warehouse Building

The Requirement…

The project for HS2 required a large, 5m integrated open sided loading bay with an internal store room along with internal pallet racking for additional storage.  The valuable storage space will  be used to store items needed throughout their build programme. 

The Solutions…

The structure was manufactured in a bespoke 15m x 32m size allowing the client to maximise the space available on site.

Temporary buildings can offer a fast and cost effective solution for large construction and infrastructure projects.  This includes material storage, security such as gate buildings and welfare compounds with offices that can even be partitioned for temporary site meeting rooms.  A large 4.6 x 4.6m manually operated sliding door was included for secure access.

Engineered to any specification, our structures are designed to meet the relevant BS6399 and Eurocodes for wind and snow loading. They offer a quick, cost-effective, and flexible solution to create more efficient use of existing space.

The Specification…

Frame: Aluminium clear-span structure with 4 channel aluminium extrusion beam, 5m bay length, 22-degree roof pitch, snow loading capacity of 75kg/m2 and wind loading of 28 m/s.

Roof: Single skin PVC material roof 650g /m2, non-flammable, fully tensioned with anti-condensation liner 

Door: 4.6 x 4.6m manually operated sliding door.

Guttering: 64m (32m to each side) UPVC gutters to eaves of structure with 6 downpipes
