Temporary Warehouse Installed for Retail Giant!

Rethinking the retail experience with temporary buildings

Due to huge demand for Click and Collect and the associated warehouse requirements, a designated structure to fulfill click and collect ordered was required, separate to the main store.  The new temporary warehouse makes efficient use of space on an unused area of tarmac.

The Requirement

As retailers cement their omnichannel experience, we were asked by one of our returning clients to deliver their 5th temporary warehouse facility. The requirement was to enhance the customer journey and provide much needed temporary storage space to store and fulfill click and collect orders

The temporary building needed to be in close proximity to the store so that goods could be transported freely between locations. Full insulation was also required, together with several entry and exit points to keep up with the fast-paced operation.

The Solutions

A fully insulated temporary warehouse budling was installed, using insulated sandwich panels and an inflatable roof system. The brief included rapid action roller shutter doors to maximise energy efficiency and maintain the insulation properties.

The new structure will enable the client to continue expanding their operation to meet the ever-growing demand for Click & Collect.  Importantly due to the modular nature of temporary buildings, if the client requires more space in the future, it can be quickly bolted on to their existing space. 

We understand that the customer experience is an important factor in the retail industry. That’s why we provide a temporary building that has a ‘permanent’ look and feel to provide a high quality shopping experience for valued consumers. Two electrically operated fast open roller shutter doors complete the warehouse building.

The fully insulated structure provides additional storage space, fitted with a double skin inflatable roof system providing great insulation and acoustic qualities. The insulated roof system deliveres good thermal performance at  1.6 W (m²K). This coupled with 60mm insulated sandwich panels, means the building will be comfortable all year round.
