Caterpillar UK Ltd

REQUIREMENT:

Caterpillar UK Ltd approached Spaciotempo to create a shelter with which they could test their vehicle’s cabs for any leaks. Additionally, they needed some heating within the building so the water did not freeze during colder months and create a risk for staff. Quick reaction times were key for the company, as they needed a solution within weeks. So Spaciotempo took on the challenge and provided a 5m x 10m temporary testing area.

SOLUTION:

When Caterpillar UK Ltd approached Spaciotempo for a temporary building they had a very specific requirement in mind. They needed a place that they could test their vehicle’s cabs for any leaks. Additionally, they needed some heating within the building so the water did not freeze during colder months and create a risk for staff. Quick reaction times were key for the company, as they needed a solution within weeks.

So Spaciotempo took on the challenge and provided a 5m x 10m temporary testing area on a 4.2m eave. Using our own design, manufacture and installation teams we installed the building within a matter of weeks. With a thermo roof, 1 single personnel exist door, 1 electric roller shutter door, 20m of guttering and 1 high bay light. With the additional need for a heater we also installed 29Kw heater.

Rob Scott, Caterpillar UK Ltd.’s Manufacturing Engineer comments “With our very specific need we were unsure how Spaciotempo would deal with the time scale and specifications. Their Area Sales Manager was quick to come out to site and talk through our needs and we were instantly impressed. The communication from all staff was excellent and everyone was very accommodating. Spaciotempo was recommended to us and we will certainly recommend them to others as well. Fantastic, professional company.”
