When Skoda Warrington approached Field and Lawn for additional covered space to carry out valeting and car detailing onsite, we knew just the solution! A purpose built industrial valeting bay, using the flexibility and speed that temporary buildings provide.

At a Glance…

Who: Skoda Warrington

Size: 8.5m x 6m on a 3m eave 

Location: Warrington  

Sector: Industrial Valeting Bay

The Requirement…

The client required a new covered building that would seamlessly slot into a small area of land to help staff detail and clean cars throughout the year.  

The Solutions…

The structure was manufactured in a bespoke 8.5m x 6m size allowing the car dealership to maximise the space available on an already tight site.

To create a compartmentalised “wet” and “dry” side to the structure, an internal PVC dividing wall was installed to separate the bays.  This was a key detail that the client requested.  The structure is a cost-effective and quick alternative to a traditional building and it will stand the test of time. 

The temporary valeting bay provides a great deal of flexibility. If there was ever a need to re-locate the structure, that would be possible. In addition to car valeting the structure could also provide overflow space for smart repairs.

The structure was fitted with 2x electric roller shutter doors and one pedestrian door. This enabled the team work independently and open/close doors as required when working on the vehicles. 

The structure meets 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, 3m 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. 

Walling: Single skin steel cladding.

Doors: 2no 3m x 2.5m electrically operated fast open roller shutter 

Guttering: 12m (6m to each side) UPVC gutters to eaves of structure with downpipes
