CASE STUDY:
On-Site Storage Solution


Feeling the squeeze? Our client faced a classic conundrum: booming business, bursting storage. Relocating was disruptive, off-site options were inconvenient, and traditional building timelines were agonisingly slow. They needed a solution that was fast, flexible, and cost-effective.

They invested in one our semi-permanent buildings, which was constructed in a matter of weeks using modular aluminium components and fitted out to their exact requirements.

Design and Planning


It was vital that any new structure must not interfere with a tree protection area to the right-hand side, nor invade on neighbouring business territory to the left.

To make the most of the space they had, the client sought a bespoke structure that could create the capacity they needed whilst making the use of every last square meter of valuable space.

Our solution involved installing an irregular structure next to their existing warehouse to account for an unusual boundary.

Our supporting documents meant a quick and easy planning process.

Foundations


Having solved their initial problem and establishing their end-use requirements, we then focused on the foundations.

Building directly on the grass would not be a viable long term solution, therefore we supplied a concrete slab design. Our slab design raised the foundations 150mm above ground, while the cladding laps down the side of the slab to further prevent water ingress.

A polished concrete finish ensures the building is suitable for pallet storage.

Cladding


They were very keen to insulate the structure to protect the welfare of their workers and increase the longevity of their building. We helped them to achieve this with a finish that blended seamlessly with their existing facility. The facility features insulated roof and wall panels for optimal thermal performance.

Build


We designed an L-shaped structure respecting property lines and trees, exceeding client expectations!

The made-to-measure building consists of a 20m x 30m frame with 5m x 10m cut-out. It is built on a 4m leg to provide a highly versatile storage and work space, which is suitable for installing racking and increasing their on-site capacity.
