Finding the right premises is among the most important challenges for any business. The buildings in which we operate should cater to the basic needs of those working in them, as well as being easily reached and, ideally, good to look at.
In some cases, the short-term needs of a business might make a change in premises ideal. But acquiring new premises can be costly – and there is no guarantee that the change in circumstances won’t reverse just as quickly as it arose.
A solution comes in the form of temporary buildings, of the kind provided by Neptunus. These might consist of trailer, tents and vans –they all confer the same advantage: extra space when you need it. Let’s take a look at temporary buildings and what we might get from them.
Certain kinds of business are inherently seasonal. There will be times of year where their space requirements are vastly greater than during others. For these kinds of business, temporary structures make a great deal of sense. They allow the business to react quickly to those boom periods, without worrying that the investment will backfire when trade returns to its previous levels.
Temporary buildings come in a variety of different types. Moreover, they can be customised to meet the needs of the business on whose behalf they’re being thrown up. If the structure is going to be a laboratory where strict quarantine procedures need to be implemented, then the appropriate building can be selected and installed.
Even after they’ve been installed, temporary structures can be modified easily, with additional rooms and corridors bolted on. Thus, if you decide that you need more space than you originally envisioned, you can quickly install an extra building or two.
It might be that a business is unsure whether the investment in permanent premises is warranted. A temporary structure can provide the information needed to make that decision. If the company thrives using a temporary structure, then it might be taken as a sign that a longer-term expansion in a permanent structure might be worthwhile.
Buildings of this kind are usually called upon in situations where time is of the essence. They can be thrown up quickly, since there aren’t any foundations to worry about. When they aren’t needed any longer, they can be just as quickly dismantled. A larger business with multiple branches might easily have a temporary building that’s transported between different sites throughout the year.
