Lauralu Insulated temporary buildings with opening shutters

The term ‘temporary structure’ might evoke ideas of a short-lived, maybe even makeshift build, but that’s certainly not the case with an industrial temporary building from Lauralu!

The scale and high-quality materials used to manufacture temporary building structures make them an ideal, long-lasting solution (a minimum of 10 years!) to any storage and workspace limitations your organisation might have.

In this article, we explore the reasons why temporary buildings suit multiple industries and the many different purposes they can be used for.

What industries can benefit from a temporary building structure? 

Every business has specific requirements, which is why a fully customisable modular structure (with a wide range of adaptable features) may well be exactly what you need!

The versatility of temporary building structures makes them an excellent choice for a large number of industries.

Some of the industries we’ve seen using temporary buildings are:

  • Retail
  • Sports and leisure
  • Film and TV
  • Public sector
  • Energy
  • Transport and logistics
  • Industrial

What types of temporary structures are available? 

There are a number of temporary structures and building designs available, so no matter what your business needs, you’re guaranteed to find something that’s perfect for every need, from storage all the way through to heated office space.

Here are the 3 types of temporary structures available to you:

Industrial canopies 

Industrial canopies are ideal for extending outdoor working environments to provide protection for staff, as well as increasing the storage capabilities for non-sensitive stock and materials. 

This type of structure is ideal for any industry, but especially for those that process stock or deliveries onsite.

Insulated and uninsulated buildings 

Temporary insulated buildings are perfect for organisations that need to store products that require consistent temperatures and protection from the elements, such as electronics or machinery.

Insulated and temperature-controlled buildings are also a great option for temporary buildings for schools, such as examination halls or additional classrooms.

Alternatively, if you need a weather-proof storage solution for non-sensitive materials, including pallets, peels, plastics and more, you may opt for an uninsulated structure, instead. As the name suggests, it’s the same, but without the insulation!

Sports roofs and covers

In the UK, many sports courts and pitches are plagued with bad weather – rain in the autumn, winter and spring, and blistering heat waves in the summer! A roof or cover for your courts is the perfect solution, allowing you to profit all year round, and providing a comfortable playing environment for your customers. 

4 Ways your business could utilise a temporary building structure

The versatility of temporary building structures makes them the perfect solution for a range of different purposes, including:

Increasing storage space 

Temporary structures allow you to increase the capacity of your warehouse or business premises, providing a safe space for stock and machinery that’s protected from the elements. Additionally, you will save money on off-site storage solutions – win-win!

Creating outdoor working environments

If you’re looking for a way to create a comfortable outdoor working environment for staff, an industrial canopy provides substantial cover and adequate protection from unsuitable working conditions.

Increasing capacity in educational buildings 

If your school is looking for a solution to expand educational buildings or classrooms to accommodate more pupils, a temporary structure could be the answer. Insulated buildings can be customised to create the perfect learning environment for students.

Accommodate growth

As a growing business, space is always a concern.

Temporary building structures are cost-effective and quick to erect, meaning that you can rapidly adapt to changes in your circumstances. It’s the perfect solution for an agile organisation.
