Mass Vaccination Structures

The current situation regarding mass vaccination means there is a need for large temporary structures and large marquees to accommodate the numbers involved.  We can offer temporary buildings with the following features:

  • Hard walls for ease of cleaning
  • Commercial grade vinyl floor covering
  • Fully lockable secure personnel doors
  • Overhead ducting heating systems
  • Full lighting and power distribution systems
  • Can be super-insulated to maintain very low temperatures

These buildings can be installed quickly to meet an urgent requirement, and we are able to build in areas with restricted space.

Temporary Drive Through & Walk Through Testing Structures

We can provide drive through structures for mass vaccination sites which can be a simple canopy tent or full turnkey solutions including traffic barriers, security fencing, staff welfare units PPE storage and secure areas for hazardous clinical waste. If cold storage is required, we can supply power and refrigeration units. Should vaccination take place during winter months, then staff areas can be insulated, heated and protected from excessive wind-chill. We can provide also drive through marquees for blood testing, vaccinations as well as medical health checks so patients can safely stay in their cars.

In addition we can supply walk-through testing structures with social distancing dividers, heating and lighting.

Our structures are available to buy or hire on a short or long term basis. This service is available at very short notice.

Temporary Emergency Structures

When an emergency strikes, a speedy response is vital and we are specialists in providing emergency shelters, cover and temporary structures quickly.

If a fire has destroyed an existing building and you need a temporary replacement, or a natural disaster has meant a pop-up medical building is required, we can provide bespoke temporary structures to cater for these occasions.

It is possible to for us to erect these structures very quickly after being contacted, while still being able to assure the strength and quality of the buildings, so you don’t need to worry about the roof above your head when dealing with the emergency in hand.

There are a variety of different options available for our structures and can provide the exact space you need.

We can offer windows, hard or carpeted flooring, temperature control and a variety of wall and roof types which can be taken into consideration when designing and preparing the perfect structure to help deal with your emergency.

Temporary Offices

If your office building has been damaged in a disaster, a temporary office space is going to be essential for keeping your business going. As with the classrooms, we can create a short-term office space that feels just like the space you’re used to working in.

We can work with you to carefully but swiftly create a bespoke office structure that is practical and comfortable for your staff and provides the space and light that you need for a productive working environment. With our flexible, rolling contracts, you needn’t worry about rebuilding your permanent offices in a rush as we can keep your temporary offices pitched and maintained for as long as you need.
