The Economic Benefits of Temporary Buildings

With the economy still in recession, many businesses which have space issues are choosing to use temporary buildings and warehouses as permanent options.

Permanent structures can drain finances, take a lot of time to design and build, and become a lasting commitment that becomes increasingly inflexible if the worst happens and a business starts to decline.

Equally, of course, you can easily take apart a temporary structure and install it elsewhere. So if a building is no longer required, often there may be a buy-back clause so that the building will be taken back off you promptly without any additional complications to your business.

So it’s perhaps not surprising that the notion of temporary building hire is increasing in popularity and profile, with a growing number of schools, businesses and others waking up to the benefits.

Stacks of Choice

Temporary structures come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, can be made from a huge range of different materials, and are made for any number of diverse purposes.

These buildings can be used to help in the construction of a bigger project, but, equally, they may be the project in themselves, so it’s important to keep the definition of “temporary building” fairly broad.

Sometimes, these structures may only be needed for a short while, or to allow a clearly defined function to be performed, before being taken down and perhaps relocated. Both their existence and function are temporary.

The variety is huge, from sports event seating to kiosks, warehouses, marquees and portable cabins. Even some ice rinks are technically temporary structures!

To recap, the major benefits include:

• Speed of building
• Greatly reduced cost
• Flexibility
• Buildings can be linked together
• Suit the interior to your own needs
• Get very specific sizing to maximise the use of space
• Because there are no foundations, a temporary building can be sited on a wide variety of bases, from hardcore to concrete

These are just some of the benefits – there are many others.
