For many companies and industries, temporary buildings have been a game-changer in the market. Experts cite that economical impact and sustainability are some of the critical factors to consider when fabricating and erecting temporary buildings on the intended site.
This means that temporary buildings should be more eco-friendly and cheaper to construct compared to permanent structures.
According to a survey, most clients want a temporary structure that promotes a clean environment, and more so, a structure that is durable and will last for several years to come.
Based on research, here are some of the characteristics of an economical and sustainable temporary building:
Consumes Low Energy
Most building owners aim at using low power so that they can reduce their monthly bills. Therefore, when erecting a temporary structure, have an option of green energy.
This means that you should take advantage of the natural light and use it during the day and install solar panels.
Solar panels can be connected to solar batteries to provide power to printers and computers. If you have heavy machines, you can reduce power consumption through proper ventilation to avoid overheating.
Versatility is one essential traits that makes temporary structures economical. It means that one structure can be easily customised and used for many activities.
For example, if a school has a modular classroom, Smart-Space can customise the building to be used for learning, doing exams, research, or converted into an office.
Companies and industries can have temporary structures that can be used in many different ways. This reduces the need to construct several buildings, hence saving money.
Stable and Strong Frames
The backbone of a robust temporary building is its durable and sturdy frames. Many different materials such as steel can be used, although the most common is aluminium.
Aluminium is light in weight, which makes it very portable. Furthermore, the use of hollow aluminium bars makes the temporary structure even more comfortable to carry around.
Sustainable and Pocket-Friendly Roof Materials
Roofing materials used in temporary structures differ depending on the affordability and use.
Nonetheless, compared to those used in permanent structures, roofing materials used in temporary buildings are cheaper. Furthermore, they are long-lasting and waterproof.
They will protect items stored in them against any harm such as moisture, sunlight, and other harsh weather conditions.
Proper ventilation is also essential in providing sufficient air circulation in the temporary building. Experts cite that with the right conditions, clients save a lot of money and the sustainability of the temporary structure is guaranteed.
Temporary structures are quick to erect. This ensures that when setting up your business, you’ll spend less time on construction. Secondly, they are flexible and can be easily customised to fit various needs such as adding more space.
Since one of the primary materials used in construction is aluminium, temporary structures are light and can be transported from one location to another. Finally, compared to permanent buildings, temporary structures are cheap to construct.
