It’s all very well choosing to reconfigure a site, but ensuring operations don’t suffer in the process can be more tricky. Temporary structures are an option worth considering, for the following reasons:

– They are quick to build, taking days rather than the months a relocation project would take.

– Refurbishments and improvements to existing permanent buildings can be carried out while a temporary building is in situ, so operations can continue at full strength.

– Structures have a ten-year guarantee and meet required British Standards for snow and wind loadings, fire and safety codes.

– Structures can be relocated around the site, or moved to alternative sites. They can be expanded, modified, dismantled and returned as required – ensuring a quick reaction to change that doesn’t come with permanent buildings and / or relocations.

– Companies can save costs by avoiding large capital investment, labour, civil works (buildings are anchored to the ground) and architectural fees of new-builds, controlling monthly hire charges and maximising operational costs by using all possible site space.

– Remaining on site by using temporary structures avoids the upheaval, logistical headache and insecurities associated with change.

Aganto can now supply buildings that are Part L2A compliant – they meet the same standards of a permanent building that needs to be used and heated over a two-year period, in terms of insulation properties.

The Aganto structures do not require traditional foundations or civil works and can be built in a matter of weeks.
