Temporary Warehouse Buildings
Fews temporary warehouse buildings are a robust and flexible solution to temporary storage and seasonal storage issues. Available to hire or buy, each warehouse building can be in use for many years, either in one location or even moved around according to business need. Temporary buildings make predicting future requirements a less hazardous and potentially expensive affair.
Our buildings can be specified in any size. Typically we offer up to 8 metre eave height and any width or length in 5 metre bay increments. This should not be viewed as a limitation though, if something different is required to suit your site then any design can be considered.
Building types include non-insulated, part insulated, insulated and super-insulated for some specific projects. Follow these links for more information:
Storage Buildings and Why You Might Need One
From time to time many businesses will require temporary storage solutions for a variety of reasons. Here are a few likely scenarios:
- Seasonal storage – in the run up to Christmas those businesses with significant seasonal uplift in sales will need to keep additional stock to meet demand.
- New Product Launch – new products invariably means keeping two lines in stock as the old products are phased out and the new product lines are built up.
- Overstock – sometimes we just get our forecasting wrong and end up with excess inventory.
- Damage to existing warehouse – it does happen, and we can’t predict when. Fire, water damage and any number of other disasters are all part of a warehouse manager’s nightmares.
Given any of the above scenarios, we need to consider our options which include:
- where is the additional or replacement storage building going to be?
- how much space is needed?
- are there any specific requirements (temperature, access, security)?
For many businesses, it is much preferable that additional or temporary storage is on-site. This can be for reasons of security, near to production or just where existing logistics staff are located.
Fews temporary storage buildings can provide the ideal environment for your products. In addition to the size and insulation options mentioned above you may consider these:
The size, positioning and type of doors can be specified with options of sliding doors, manual, automatic and fast roller shutters, with personnel doors and windows if needed.
If security is a concern, Fews can offer steel walls, roofs, locking access doors and full alarm systems.

Planning permission for a Temporary Storage Building

Temporary Cold Storage Warehouses
Ambient, Refrigerated and Cold Storage Buildings
We provide insulated aluminium temporary structures of any dimension to hire or buy.
When you have volatility in your business due to unprecedented demand fluctuations, it can present storage challenges, and the cold supply chain doesn’t give much room for error.
Cold storage temporary warehousing can offer much needed extra capacity at the time and place you need it most.
The refrigerated or cold storage of perishable products is a key part of the supply chain, linking the producers and the transportation to the retail network.
Many industries require cold storage of temperature-sensitive products, including medical / pharmaceuticals, food and drink, and agricultural produce.
Maintaining proper storage conditions for these products is vital to ensuring their quality, and we provide temporary cold storage buildings designed to operate within controlled temperature ranges.
Our cold storage temporary buildings utilise fully insulated walls, and can be fitted with a thermo pumped roof system for insulation and elimination of damaging condensation.
Alternatively we can provided insulated sandwich roof panels which provides extra levels of insulation if required.
Refrigerated or Cold Storage
Sometimes referred to as chilled storage, cold storage normally operates in a range of 0 – 8°C and includes products such as medical / pharmaceuticals, food and drink, and agricultural produce. The storage and transportation of the upcoming Covid-19 vaccine is likely to create pressure on the existing cold supply chain and a temporary warehouse is an ideal solution.
Ambient Controlled Storage
Ambient controlled storage offers dry, clean, well ventilated storage at room temperature, which is usually somewhere in the range of 15° to 25°C. This caters for products that require storing at room temperature such as electricals, toys, paper and perishables including certain foods and drinks.
