Lauralu temporary building structures and demountable buildings for industrial sector

Temporary buildings are versatile and cost-effective solutions for various industries and applications, from warehousing and manufacturing to sports and leisure centres

In this blog, we’ll take a comprehensive look at the process of building a Lauralu temporary building, from planning to completion.


What is involved in the construction process?

The construction of a temporary structure requires meticulous planning and preparation. Here are several key steps involved in the process: 


Site visit and assessment

Before any construction work can begin, a comprehensive site visit needs to be carried out. This allows us to assess various factors that could impact the installation of the cladding. During the visit, our experts will evaluate ground conditions, accessibility, and other potential issues. These help us to form a solid plan for the project to ensure that the installation of the structure is both safe and efficient. 


Design to meet requirements

Following the site assessment, the next step is designing the steel frame building to meet the specific requirements of the project. This includes not only the structural aspects but also the design elements of the cladding. Architects and engineers work closely to create a design that balances functionality and aesthetics.


Secure planning permission

Before any construction can start, planning permission is needed. This involves submitting the design plans and project details to local authorities for approval. Securing planning permission ensures that the construction adheres to zoning regulations and local building codes. 


Manufacturing the structure

Once the design has been approved and planning permission secured, the manufacturing process can begin. In the case of steel frame buildings with cladding, an essential component is the aluminium frame. Aluminium is a popular choice for its lightweight yet durable properties, making it ideal for supporting cladding materials. The frame is engineered to match the exact design specifications, ensuring a perfect fit during installation.


Site preparation

Preparing the construction site involves clearing the area, levelling the land, and setting the foundation for the steel frame building. Proper site preparation is essential to create a stable and level surface for the installation of both the frame and the cladding. It also includes installing any necessary utilities and infrastructure.


Cladding installation 

Once the site is prepared, it’s time for the main event: the cladding installation. Our highly skilled professionals carefully install the cladding materials onto the aluminium frame, following the design plans precisely. This step not only enhances the building’s appearance but also provides essential protection against the elements.


Interior fit-out

After completing the cladding, the interior fit-out stage begins. This involves adding finishing touches to the building’s interior, such as wiring, plumbing, insulation, and interior walls. The interior fit-out ensures that the building is functional, comfortable, and ready for its intended use.
