Long Acres Nursery

Long Acres Nursery

“We have been able to rent the buildings for exactly the length of time they are required, which has not only enabled us to keep the business going but minimises any unnecessary expenditure. Renting a temporary building has proved itself to be a very versatile way of managing our space during our expansion.”

Case Study

An ambitious refurbishment of Long Acres Nursery in Bagshot is underway with some temporary operational space being provided by us for the duration of the renovations. The independent, privately owned nursery has been serving gardening enthusiasts throughout Surrey since the business started in 1979 and during that time it has grown organically to become the largest independent nursery in Surrey covering some 9 acres.

A major redevelopment of the whole site is being undertaken in phases by lead contractor, Vear Construction. To enable Long Acres to provide a continuous service to customers during the works, we supplied two gutter-linked buildings totaling 1650sqm in size which are being used as a temporary retail area with integral café. The larger of the two buildings is 85m in length and temporarily provides the main retail space for the nursery.

An internal wall separates the café area from the main shop. Customers gain access via 5 double fully glazed shop front doors which provide the look, as well as the strength, of permanent retail doors. They also flood the interior with light for a pleasant shopping experience.

The second building, 25m in length, provides an indoor link to the nursery shop creating a seamless path around the differing sections of the nursery. The temporary buildings have been rented for a period of 40 weeks up until the new facilities are ready. John Davies at Vear Construction is happy with the flexibility of the solution found to enable the centre to stay open during construction:

“The Spaciotempo temporary buildings have provided Long Acres Nursery with the ideal solution to maintain service to customers whilst upgrading the permanent premises. The installation team has done a great job in installing the buildings in the timeframe and to the standard we required.”
