When Planning an Installation of a portable building

No matter which temporary building provider you choose, there are some basic guidelines to follow.

  • Consider both hire and purchase options.
  • Depending on what you are storing, what activity is taking place and how many people will be in the temporary building is how you determine what level of insulation you require or whether a budget, non-insulated structure is sufficient. Sensitivity of goods, condensation and temperature control are all areas you should be advised on.
  • Visit some example modular buildings and portable buildings in operation.
  • Ask to see examples of previous projects and request written or verbal references.
  • Check the temporary building complies with British Standards for UK snow and wind loadings (BS6399) fire and safety codes, with relevant documentation available.
  • It is the customers’ responsibility to check for any existing underground services prior to delivery and installation of the temporary building.
  • Seek advice about ground conditions. Unlevel ground may need levelling out, or a concrete pad installing prior to build. Ensure your provider carries out a full site survey and pull test to ensure the ground conditions are suitable.
  • Make sure you get a written Commitment to Service before signing a contract.
  • Try not to be too price driven in your choice. Consider reputation, credibility, experience, how many years established, warranties and service commitment. Without these you might incur significant costs down the line.
  • Ensure your contact / project manager is not just a 'salesman', but can demonstrate proof of technical ability and experience. This is critical as it can create a gulf between what is sold to you and what can operationally be delivered.
  • You should be able to choose from ad-hoc or individual maintenance programmes, with 24 hour response telephone numbers in the event of an emergency.
  • Unlike permanent buildings, portable modular buildings can be delivered and fully operational within days of order.
