How are temporary buildings installed?

Due to the wide range of temporary structures (marquees, warehouses, offices), we’re going to focus on the installation of temporary buildings. Often, these buildings are constructed from either single PVC or steel with a choice of insulated panelling (depending on the building requirements) and as a result, they must be securely fixed to the ground.

In most cases, these temporary buildings are fixed to the ground using base plates, expansion bolts, and the right anchorage to prevent them from lifting up. Once these base plates have secured the frame, the temporary warehouse can be built on top of this frame, with doors, windows, and other necessary features being added at this stage.


Which foundations are suitable for temporary buildings?

Most hard surfaces (such as tarmac, hard core, concrete, and block paving) make suitable temporary building foundations. However, the temporary structure supplier will often conduct groundwork tests to ensure that the sub-layers beneath the surface are the right quality, thickness, and type to support the building.

If a temporary building is required to built on top of particularly unlevel or poor-quality ground, a concrete slab can be used to create a more reliable foundation. However, an even ground is not always necessary, and it often comes down to the temporary structure supplier to decide whether the ground requires any additional work prior to the building installation.
