Manufacturing and Assembly in temporary warehouse

By 1 January 2010November 20th, 2023Industrial, Automotive

Established in 1985, John Dennis Coach Builders is a world renowned British manufacturer of fire engines. The company was in urgent need of extra space for storage, manufacture and assembly of vehicles. A build would be too permanent and to rent a suitable industrial unit nearby was impractical. Nor were they totally convinced that a temporary warehouse could offer them the kind of protection, security and controlled working conditions. Fortunately, they had heard about the Spaciotempo approach and contacted us.

Secondly,  it proved to be entirely feasible to build a temporary warehouse on a car park area adjacent to their existing manufacturing facility. However, because of the slightly undulating ground we recommended laying a special tarmac platform onto which the building would be bolted. This provided a very taught and secure building. Whilst enabling us to plumb in services and better manage drainage.

In conclusion, the provided building measured 25m wide x 25m long x 5m high. Featuring insulated roofing, an insulated walling system, five roller shutter doors, and four personnel doors. For John Dennis, our recommendations successfully addressed a challenging problem. Furthermore, they were pleased to admit that their initial apprehensions were completely unfounded. This solution not only met their immediate needs but also demonstrated the versatility and effectiveness of the Spaciotempo approach.
