Temporary Buildings

As a leading supplier of modular buildings and temporary buildings, we understand the building requirements of a wide range of industries, including everything from storage and logistics to manufacturing, commerce and sports. No matter how big or small, basic or detailed, grand or modest – and wherever you are in the UK – we can fulfil your needs, on time and to your budget.


All of our temporary building structures are engineered and built to comply with relevant building regulations and standards. Constructed off-site, they are designed to minimise both installation time and disruption to your site, and can be fully relocated in the future.


Whether you need a simple storage space or state-of-the-art marketing suite – fully equipped with electrics, air conditioning, plumbing, communications and more – we’re here to help. We can provide the perfect temporary building to ensure your business or project thrives.


What type of temporary buildings are available?


Here at Useful Structures, we currently supply two different types of temporary building:


  1. Expansive temporary structures, constructed from sectional portal systems – aimed largely at the logistics, sports and waste management sectors, for use as temporary warehousing, storagesports hallsloading canopiesscanning shedsand waste management.
  2. Fully-fitted, bespoke modular buildings – which are an imaginative and innovative option for sales and marketing suites, offices, commerce, fitness studios, retail and leisure.


From the initial designs and drawings of the structure to the final installation and commissioning, we offer a fully comprehensive service. Our temporary building structures are a flexible, contemporary and cost-effective alternative to traditional solutions – and, over the years, we have helped many clients to start-up, grow and re-imagine the goals of their business.



Why should I invest in a temporary building structure?


Temporary buildings offer a wide range of benefits:




All of our temporary structures are made-to-order to meet your exact specification. Big or small, single- or multi-storey, whatever shape or size – we can supply it. We offer a diverse range of interior and exterior fixtures and fittings and strive to make your building as efficient and ergonomic as possible for your business, tailoring it perfectly to your individual needs.


Fantastic aesthetics


With a range of internal and external finishes to choose from, you can create a truly spectacular, professional temporary structure – creating the best possible environment for your team and for your clients.


Fast installation


Thanks to the prefabricated nature of our modular and sectional buildings, time spent on-site can be minimised. Our goal is to arrive at your location, assemble your new temporary building and leave you to get on with day-to-day operations, as quickly as possible.




Perhaps the biggest advantage is that all of our temporary building structures are completely relocatable. Whether a fully-fitted, plastered and air-conditioned office or a 3000m2 warehouse, we can move your building – quickly and easily – from one site to another.


That means that your investment is about as future-proof as it can possibly be. If you need a warehouse on leased land, you can take it with you when your lease expires. When your construction project on one site has finished, your project office or sales and marketing suite can be moved to the next. The structure may have been designed and engineered with the first site in mind, but it can be later relocated to suit your current business operations.




It’s also possible for our temporary buildings to be adapted in the future. There’s no need to invest in a new structure for each new site or project. And no need to buy new if your business has grown or expanded. You can simply adjust and add to your existing building – in line with your evolving needs.

Our Services

A temporary building is, essentially, a building that is used for a short time. According to building regulations, for it to be deemed ‘temporary’, this period should be no more than 28 days long. However, in reality, temporary building structures can be used for much longer than this.


There are two main types of temporary building available, including modular structures and structures that are made from sectional portal systems. These can vary greatly in terms of their design, specification and size and the right one for you will depend on your specific needs.




All of our temporary buildings are made-to-order. This is our unique selling point. Unlike many suppliers, we do not believe that one size fits all. We believe that your operational requirements are unique – and, to accommodate your unique day-to-day business operations, your building must be tailored to meet those requirements.


As such, we supply structures that are 100% bespoke – designed and tailored in consultation with you and then manufactured and installed to meet that exact specification. Our buildings can be made to any shape or size and we offer an extensive range of interior and exterior finishes, to ensure that the building looks and performs as you need it to. Simply tell us what you need or have in mind, and we will make it a reality.


Yes – if you plan to use your temporary building for 28 days or more (consecutively), you will need to obtain planning permission. In most cases, this is just a formality – especially if the building was supplied by us. All of our structures are engineered and built to comply with strict building regulations and, as long as certain installation criteria are met, approval is usually granted.


For example, the temporary structure must not be erected on a designated parking space or flood plain and its installation must not interfere with natural vegetation or wildlife.


This varies depending on several factors, including:


  • the type of temporary building you require
  • the interior and exterior options chosen
  • the number of revisions made to your design
  • our availability at the time


But rest assured, customer service is important to us and we always strive to offer a fast turnaround.


A deadline that works for everyone will be agreed at the start and we liaise regularly with our clients, offering updates on our progress and ensuring we are on programme every step of the way. Most of the construction of our buildings takes place off-site, meaning minimal disruption to your business, and we pride ourselves on delivering on-budget, on-programme projects.


Both modular and sectional temporary buildings are pre-fabricated. We consult with you first regarding the size and specification required and then engineer the structure off-site. This ensures the final installation is quick and easy and keeps the time spent on your premises to a minimum.


On the day of the installation, our team will work closely with your construction team – offering comprehensive method statements, risk assessments and lift plans before they start work. All of our staff are CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) accredited and have up-to-date operator licences. They will use the relevant equipment to safely lift and assemble the structure, achieving a high-quality and professional finish every time.


Just because they’re called temporary buildings doesn’t mean they are not built to last. In fact, the word ‘temporary’ has more to do with how the structure is installed and its unique ability to be dismantled, modified and relocated in the future – rather than its predicted lifespan. We prefer ‘relocatable’ rather than ‘temporary’.


All of our temporary buildings, here at Useful Structures, are made from the highest quality materials. They’re also engineered and constructed to the highest industry standards and comply with all relevant UK building regulations. As such, there’s no limit to how long they will last. Dependent on your needs, they can be used for anything from a few months to many, many years.


The exact cost of a temporary building structure varies depending on several factors, including the specific type chosen, its overall size and the selected fixtures and fittings. If you would like further details and a personalised quote, please feel free to give us a call on 01788 861246.


Here at Useful Structures, all of our temporary buildings are priced as competitively as possible. We will work closely in line with your budget to create the ideal structure for your needs – and, as it can be relocated and used again, you’re guaranteed fantastic value for money and maximum return on investment.


Customer satisfaction is incredibly important to us. Ultimately, our goal is to supply a temporary building, that is perfectly tailored to your needs and built solely with your business in mind. All of our structures are 100% bespoke and imaginatively designed. Catering to a range of industries, we offer many different internal and external fixtures, fittings and finishes. Temporary buildings can be made to any shape or size that you require, to suit any budget or project. Just tell us what you have in mind and we will make it a reality and create a structure that ticks all the right boxes.


It’s fair to say, we’re experts in the industry. Not only do we have a significant level of experience, we have proven knowledge of temporary buildings (and the relevant building regulations), our installation teams are CSCS accredited and we complete all jobs to the highest possible standard.


What’s more, our prices are competitive. The temporary buildings that we supply offer the best return on investment – as they can be adapted and relocated multiple times. Whatever your project requirements or budget, we can help. Simply give us a call on 01788 861246 to get started.
