Temporary Buildings & Structures

Emergency Cover & Emergency Shelters

Extensions to Hospitals and Medical Centres

Due to the demand for space forced by Covid-19 restrictions, we have been erecting extensions to existing medical centres. Our emergency medical centre extensions are designed to be attached to existing buildings providing weatherproof additional space.


    • Heating and air conditioning (HVAC)
    • Commercial grade vinyl flooring
    • Power supply and distribution
    • Toilet facilities
    • Exterior and interior lighting
    • Insulated walls and roofs
    • Alarm systems

Waiting Areas and Receptions

The need for segregated reception rooms and post vaccination waiting rooms for allergic reaction monitoring and social distancing is clear, and we can provide these facilities very quickly, even connecting them to existing buildings

Covered Walkways for Emergency Temporary Buildings

We can build temporary covered walkways to connect any emergency temporary buildings and structures to protect everyone from the elements and for social distancing.

Mass Vaccination Structures

*Stock available for immediate installation*

Our emergency temporary buildings and marquees make ideal mass vaccination structures. The current situation regarding vaccination means there is a need for emergency temporary buildings and marquees of all sizes to accommodate the numbers for social distancing and other logistical issues involved. We can offer emergency temporary buildings with the following features:

  • Soft sided structures for versatility in confined areas
  • 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 for storage
  • Can be built on tarmac, concrete or grass

These buildings can be installed quickly to meet an urgent requirement, and we are able to build in areas with restricted space.  We have developed COVID-safe procedures for the rigging teams, including clear separation processes and welfare vans.

Temporary Drive Through and Walk Through Testing Structures

We can provide drive through emergency testing 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 Covid-19 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 testing marquees for blood testing, vaccinations as well as medical health checks so patients can safely stay in their cars.

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

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

The examples below show drive through emergency structures we provided to the NHS Nightingale Hospital Birmingham at the NEC.
