If you’re considering what foundations are required for a temporary building you need to first understand what the essential component of that building, ie the frame, is engineered from.
If it’s steel then the weight equals groundworks, additional cost and time. If it’s aluminium then foundations become a much simpler, economical and in most cases an almost non-existent affair. Obviously, this has something to do with the lightweight qualities of the metal, but if they don’t need foundations how are they installed and do the lightweight qualities and alternative construction processes affect strength and durability?
Temporary buildings have a wide range of uses. If you’ve decided that the time has come to make use of them, you probably already have an idea on how you’re going to use it.
It is worth mentioning that the term ‘temporary building’ can be a little misleading. Although they were designed for short-term use in the past, advancements in materials and technologies mean that they’re more durable and long-standing than ever.
With many products you can choose whether to buy direct from the manufacturers or through a third party supplier. Naturally we at HTS INDUSTRIAL firmly believe clients benefit by choosing the manufacturers, because we are one! How many of our reasons though are ours and ours alone or shared by other manufacturers and more importantly benefited from by the customers?
These are the reasons we believe it’s better to buy direct from the manufacturer for your temporary building and also in general. Continue reading →
Many people are now referring to temporary buildings as ‘instant’ or ‘rapid-build’. Giving them the label of ‘instant temporary buildings’ would probably be stretching the imagination a bit – blink and a car park becomes an industrial warehouse!
However, comparing the supply and build time to that of bricks and mortar and the ‘instant’ title starts to earn its place – after all, being able to accommodate company growth and expansion in a couple of weeks instead of 12 months is probably going to create a fairly instant boost to many business balance sheets. How long does it actually take though to acquire a fully operational temporary building and can the fast turn-around really help create those ‘instant’ business benefits? Continue reading →
Storage buildings for industrial use come in various shapes, sizes and configurations including permanent units for sale or lease, shipping containers, steel prefab buildings or aluminium prefab storage buildings.
Many people refer to the latter as industrial tents as they consider the frame to be similar to a modern clear span marquee. This however is incorrect.
So where do they get their durability and flexibility from and how can it benefit your business? Continue reading →
If you don’t know much about demountable buildings, imagine an industrial sized flat pack without the headache of self-assembly.
The key advantages that come with household flat pack are ease of transport, reduced cost, speed of build (as long as there are words to go with the images!) and flexibility of use – ie you could dismantle the item and store it if you became short of space.
Demountable industrial buildings tick all the same boxes and in recent years have opened up a whole new world of options to industrial businesses. Continue reading →
Like many things in life the criteria to consider when you need a temp building installing on site comes down to the age old What, When, Why, Where and How. Generally the ‘What’ and ‘How’ equates to the specification; what you need it for and how you need it; size, cladding, insulation, doors etc.
And, we now have a fabulous new tool on our website which can help you with this. In fact, more than help, it allows you to create a 3D design of your building specification. If you’re thinking you don’t have time for that, think again. Our configurator can create a visual representation of your building in under 3 minutes. And, it’s quite good fun!
