Things to consider when specifying your new temporary building

The importance of an expert site visit

Specifying and installing a new temporary building is a quick and efficient way to increase space. It also eliminates the complexities of undertaking a traditional construction project. Starting on a temporary building project, especially if it is your first temporary building, involves a fair amount of planning. There are so many options and avenues available that it can be confusing, especially when you want to ensure you are selecting the best temporary building option for you and your business.

Warehouse and storage operations: Health and safety hazards and how you can avoid them

Helping you to store stock and manage your warehouse operations safely

Warehousing and storage activities present various hazards and risks if not managed correctly. We have installed a wide range of temporary warehouse buildings and have seen first hand how safe and efficient warehouse and storage operations can play a vital role in ensuring health and safety compliance and operational excellence.

So, if you are currently overstocked, bursting at the seams and are struggling to store safely, here is a quick guide to improving your warehouse and storage operations. We will delve into the various hazards at play and provide expert insight to mitigate and avoid them.

Warehouse and storage industry background

The warehouse and storage industry plays a pivotal role in the global supply chain, ensuring the smooth flow of goods from manufacturers to end consumers. From worker safety to inventory management, efficient, well managed warehouse and storage facilities are key to your operational efficiency.  From small storage buildings to expansive temporary warehouse buildings, a bespoke structure can ease operational challenges.

Warehouse housekeeping

Effective warehouse and storage operations start with strong housekeeping practices.
Warehouses are busy environments with constant movement. Proper housekeeping is fundamental to safe warehouse operations. Maintain a clean and organized workspace. Keep aisles and other areas clear of debris and clutter as this can be a common cause of slips, trips and falls. Cover and secure cables and other tripping hazards. If you are overstocked, finding the space to keep walkways clear can be a challenge. If you simply don’t have capacity to segregate walkways from storage zones and maintain emergency exit access, it may be time to increase your storage capacity with additional on-site storage.

Effective stacking and material storage

Incorrectly loaded or damaged pallet racks can lead to collapses, endangering both personnel and inventory. If floor space is at a premium, the most common option is to store higher, stacking stock up to the eaves of a building. However, this isn’t always the safest solution. It is vital to inform and educate warehouse staff on the load capacity of each rack and implement strict adherence to weight and height limits for storage.

To mitigate this risk, conduct routine inspections of pallet racks. This will identify any signs of damage or wear. You should replace or repair components as needed. To mitigate the risk, if you can no longer meet the demand for space, a temporary building can be easily integrated into an existing building. With clear eaves, large and safe racking solutions can be made to measure for your new storage building.

Hazardous materials and handling

Warehouses may need to handle or store hazardous materials, posing risks to both employees and the environment. products will have storage guidelines which need to be followed. If you are unable to store incompatible materials separately, one option would be to create a sperate storage space for these materials. A smaller storage building can be a complete stand-alone structure, or integrated to an existing store, without foundations. This provides a highly cost-effective and quick solution compared to a traditional building.

Material handling equipment (MHE) is essential for the efficient movement of goods within a warehouse. These include, roller cages and forklift trucks. Within a temporary building, you can custom design your space, by specifying roller shutter doors and other bespoke elements to make managing your warehouse safe and simple. We can work with you to design your new warehouse to accommodate all plant and equipment from the start.

Loading and unloading operations

Don’t let your loading bay become a dangerous bottleneck. If your existing warehouse operation requires unloading and loading operations, these are high risk activities. Wet and slippery conditions around vehicles and heavy loads present health and safety issues. Installing a loading canopy is one way to set your loading area up for safety. Where forklifts or pallet trucks are in operation, it’s especially important to keep the area dry and visibility clear. If you want to increase throughput, without risking rushing create an additional covered loading and unloading area.

A safe and comfortable working warehouse

There are a number of ancillary items that can improve the efficiency of your warehouse operations. These include; lighting, flooring heating and cooling. A temporary warehouse can be completely fitted out to meet your exact needs. A freezing warehouse is no safe place to work and retrofitting insulation can be cost-prohibitive. To provide a comfortable working environment and maintain a safe working temperature, we can provide a fully insulated warehouse solution.

A building revolution: Temporary Building Solutions For Schools

Find out how a temporary building can quickly provide extra space and capacity at your school, college or university.

During the summer holidays, many schools, colleges and universities will use the extended break to undertake essential repairs and maintenance across their sites as well as undertaking significant capital projects like classroom extensions and building upgrades.  As the new school year rapidly approaches, we know all too well that the race to get projects finished in time is on.  Where there is a risk of projects running over, beyond the summer holidays, temporary building solutions for schools can be the answer.

Temporary buildings can help deliver additional space quickly for a range of short and long-term requirements.  We have seen temporary structures used most commonly as gyms, temporary classroom facilities and examination halls.  However, more recently our flexible temporary buildings have been used to create a high quality school dining hall facility for a secondary school in Bedfordshire. 

Case Study: Temporary dining hall for schools

An open plan flexible dining hall facility

A secondary school approached us with a time-critical need to increase dining hall space and capacity on their school campus.  They needed a seamless, well-designed, and cost effective dining space that would provide a warm space for students to eat and relax and enjoy school meals throughout the academic year.  Field and Lawn provided a 10m x 20m temporary school canteen complete with secure glazed doors, lighting, heating and cooling and access ramps. 

“Temporary” only by name

While they may be called “temporary” our temporary buildings are robust and highly durable structures that comply with all UK building regulations.  They are designed to be in place for in excess of 20 years and are re-locatable.  This proves to be a great option for multi academy trusts, that wish to deploy space quickly, where needed to create high quality additional space.

Cost Efficiency: Modular temporary buildings are in the region of 70% cheaper than traditional brick and mortar buildings.

Reduced On-Site Risk: Temporary buildings are manufactured off site, reducing the risks associated with long-term construction projects on education campuses.

Minimal Disruption: Fewer contractors on-site means minimal disruption around the school site. Lower noise pollution, less mess and far fewer vehicle movements adds to the benefits of temporary buildings.

Lower Up-Front Costs: Unlike traditional building projects, modular builds required lower upfront investment.  A temporary school building can be hired for short term requirements.

Temporary or Semi-Permanent: The versatility of modular temporary buildings means it can adapt to your school’s needs, whether for temporary or semi-permanent use.  They are easily extended if you require additional space.

The Power of Insulated Temporary Buildings: Energy-Efficient Industrial Solutions

Insulated temporary buildings

Enhanced building performance is a key driver for any business. Even though energy costs have started to fall, they remain unpredictable as we head into winter.  In this article, we cover how a temporary building can perform through winter and beyond, providing a safe, cost efficient and quick solution for extra on-site capacity. 

About temporary buildings

While they are classed as “temporary”, these buildings are only temporary by name. They are robust, industrial strength structures that can stand the test of time. They can be in place for over 20 years and can be installed on virtually any ground surface.  Most commonly, they are used for storage buildings, warehouse buildings, welfare facilities, workshops and valeting bays. 

An insulated temporary building provides everything you would expect from a traditional “permanent building”, without the time and cost constraints of traditional construction.  They are modular buildings, which means they can be installed in a matter of days, at short notice, without disruption on your site. They can be:

Fully or partially insulated delivering U-Values as low as: 0.18 W/m²K

Our insulated temporary buildings

As standard, we use a BALEXTHERM insulated wall panel, with 60mm insulated PIR foam. This provides Thermal a insulation of U [W/m2K] – 0.36. Different core thicknesses (80, 100, 120 mm) can be supplied depending on your requirements. However, 60mm is the most common option and provides a good balance between cost and insulation performance. 

Our insulated temporary buildings combine an innovative blend of thermal insulation, robust construction, and patented technology, making them ideal solutions for industries where building performance matters. 

Insulated thermo roof.

In addition to insulated wall panels, thermal performance can be further improved by different roofing solutions. A popular option uses a 3-layer thermally efficient insulation lining that has been patented by our manufacturing partner, Protan Elmark. It features a specialist aluminium layer that traps heat inside the building. An additional fastening system is used to cover the visible frames in the roof area. This prevents the formation of thermal bridges, improving thermal performance. 

Click and collect temporary building

Inflatable roof

Another option is an inflatable roof, which combines two layers of robust PVC fabric with a wall mounted compressor system.  The quiet and efficient system re-cycles the air from outside and inflates the roof.  The fans capacity is 620m3/h.  This forms an insulated air pocket between the two PVC layers.  The pressure range of the air pocket can range between 0.1-0.5 mPa.  The adopted pressure standard is 0.15 MPa, that’s equivalent to approximately 22 psi. 

Anti-condensation Lining

An insulated or part-insulated temporary building will reduce the effects of condensation and maintain a safe and comfortable working environment. An additional interior anti-condensation lining can be installed or retrofitted to improve this even further.  This material is fixed below the actual roof and protects the buildings contents from condensation. The lining is flame retardant and has a material thickness of 500 g/m2.

Hire an insulated building

If you are looking for a short-term temporary structure, you can hire a temporary building.  This means you will benefit from additional space quickly without significant, up front expenditure.  When you rent a temporary building, you can simply return the structure to us, after the rental period.  Or, if you want to keep the building, we offer a purchase option during the rental period.

Temporary structures: Industrial temporary buildings for construction and infrastructure projects

Why are tier one construction contractors turning to industrial temporary buildings on large infrastructure projects?

Temporary buildings are widely used in retail and logistics as a fast and affordable method to increase storage space.  In recent months, we have seen an increase in demand from construction contractors working on longer-term, large-scale projects requiring extra space.  As a temporary building can be installed in most locations, they make for excellent site storage facilities for construction and infrastructure projects. 

While the structures may be called “temporary”, the reality is they’re usually in place for many years, such is the quality and life expectancy of our structures.  The benefit of a temporary building is that once the project has completed, it can be easily relocated to other sites or another project.  As they are modular buildings, it is possible to easily add or remove bays, giving you the right space for your site.  They meet all relevant building regulations and are designed to comply with local wind and weather loadings, which we include as standard during the design process.

A comprehensive guide to temporary warehouse buildings

Unlock the benefits of temporary warehouse buildings

Finding a robust storage solution is at the top of the priority list for many businesses.  With the prospect of rising rents and soaring construction costs of traditional storage buildings, temporary warehouses are becoming an increasingly popular solution.  

If you need to build and install a temporary warehouse, this article is for you!  It will cover the fundamentals of temporary warehousing including the various options you need to consider to build a temporary warehouse. 

Temporary warehouse buildings offer a flexible and fast alternative to traditional warehouses. This expert-level guide will provide valuable insights and information on the benefits, considerations, and key factors you need to know when it comes to temporary warehouse buildings.  

Understanding temporary warehouse buildings

external overview of a temporary building

Temporary warehouse buildings are flexible and robust structures designed to provide quick temporary storage solutions. These buildings are typically made from high quality and long-lasting materials such as aluminium.  They are completely modular, which means they can be assembled on-site quickly and removed once they are no longer required.  They offer many benefits when compared to traditional warehouse buildings. Unlike traditional warehouses, temporary warehouse buildings can be easily and quickly relocated or expanded as required. They can also be used for a full range of warehousing applications. 

Do temporary buildings make good warehouses?

Yes! Temporary buildings make excellent warehouses.  This is why:

Flexibility: Temporary buildings offer unrivalled flexibility compared to traditional buildings. Whether it’s seasonal inventory spikes or short-term projects, temporary buildings provide the agility to meet evolving storage requirements.

Cost-effectiveness: Temporary warehouses are typically more cost-effective than constructing or leasing a traditional warehouse or off-site storage. The initial investment and ongoing operational costs are around 70% lower compared to a traditional warehouse.

Speed: When you need storage space fast, a temporary building can be rapidly installed.  Traditional construction can take months or even years, whereas temporary buildings can be operational in a matter of weeks. without the need for expensive Consultants and Architects. 

Quality and durability: While temporary buildings may be temporary by name, they are robust, highly durable structures that can stand the test of time. An engineered aluminium frame provide strength, ensuring the safety of stored goods. Temporary buildings comply with Eurocodes for snow and wind loading conditions and can be specified with insulation, ventilation, and other features to maintain optimal storage conditions. 

How can you build a temporary warehouse?

Building a temporary warehouse and storage building

We can create a temporary storage shelter on almost any ground surface.  Working around existing site constraints or objects, even connecting a temporary warehouse to existing buildings.  Our temporary buildings have a small footprint and do not require complex groundworks or foundations.  The first step is to choose the right structure. Temporary buildings come in various finishes, including single skin PVC structures, single skin steel cladding, right through to insulated sandwich panels for enhanced thermal performance. Each option has its own benefits and is suited for different purposes, such as urgent storage, industrial applications, or temperature-controlled storage.

Next, there are several roofing options to consider for your temporary warehouse. Options include single skin PVC, inflatable roofs with improved thermal performance, or fully insulated and lined roofs for maximum thermal performance.  Consider the nature of your stored goods.

Finally, you can customise and specify temporary warehouses, as they are made to measure, bespoke for your business. You can tailor the building to your specific needs, including colours, door options, rainwater guttering, lighting, security systems, and electrical services. Customisation allows you to create a complete and fully functional storage space that meets your operational requirements, now and into the future.

Construction of a temporary warehouse is highly efficient as it requires minimal plant and groundworks finishing trades.  This reduces build costs and increases speed. 

Cold storage or temperature sensitive products? No problem

A large temporary building with insulated walls

We can provide completely refrigerated storage solutions, which maintain a consistent temperature for goods that require cold storage.  From beer kegs to medical products temporary warehouse buildings are a safe and robust solution to protect temperature sensitive stock.

Temporary warehouse storage: Ensuring effective operations

Operations within a temporary warehouse are the same as a traditional warehouse building.  They can be specified to optimize storage space. Implementing efficient shelving systems, such as pallet racking or mezzanine floors, will maximise storage capacity. All of these options are possible with a temporary warehouse.   This combined with a robust and secure clear span structure will provide the best use of space.  Inventory management and tracking systems can be used to streamline operations and enhance visibility. You will be impressed by the efficiency a temporary building can achieve.  

Temporary Warehousing. Should I hire or buy?

Again, unlike traditional buildings, a temporary warehouse can be rented for short-term requirements to manage seasonal peaks in storage or provide a long-term semi permeant storage unit. When considering temporary warehouse solutions, hiring offers the benefit of flexibility, allowing businesses to quickly add additional space when needed without a long-term commitment. 

A temporary storage building is a good choice for short-term storage requirements. On the other hand, purchasing a temporary warehouse building provides long-term advantages, including ownership benefits.  As temporary buildings can be easily re-located, there is a strong second-hand market for temporary storage buildings.  By investing in a temporary warehouse, businesses can have greater control, more bespoke customisation options, and an asset.

The future of temporary warehouse buildings: modular and sustainable solutions

The future lies in modular construction techniques and sustainable practices. A temporary warehouse from Field and Lawn consists of prefabricated components that are easily assembled on-site in a matter of days. This means businesses benefit from a highly cost-effective solution that can save up to 70% on traditional construction costs.  You can also scale space up as needed. Furthermore, the off-site approach minimises construction waste to provide an environmentally responsible storage solution.

Temporary Warehouses and Planning Permission

Before constructing a temporary warehouse building, businesses must understand the legal and regulatory requirements associated with such structures. In the UK, planning permission may be required depending on factors such as the size, location, and duration of the temporary warehouse. Navigating the planning permission process involves submitting the necessary documentation and ensuring compliance with local regulations and building codes. Additionally, health and safety regulations must be adhered to, including fire safety measures, emergency exits, and adequate lighting.
