  • Winter Weather Storage Solutions

    Winter is well and truly upon us, and the cold snap has seen parts of the country struggling with ice and snowfall. It’s at this time of year that many businesses realise that equipment or stock is unprotected from the elements. Iced up machinery or vehicles can make running your business far more difficult than usual. And that’s not to mention staff who normally work outside, who can find conditions pretty tricky to cope with too.


  • Solving the Warehouse Shortage

    The shortage of warehousing in the UK is seeing investors stumping up forward funding cash to developers for the building of warehouses, rather than waiting until they are completed and risking losing out to other companies. Traditionally, investors bought up existing warehouses, but are now being forced to advance fund warehouses not yet built. The North West of England is one area where there have been large amounts of forward funding made for warehousing, with a one million square foot speculative warehouse building boom about to get underway.


  • Managing Seasonal Storage Demands

    Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat; and so are the UK’s warehouses filled with Christmas stock. Seasonal demands can be a headache for businesses, as a sudden surfeit of products need to be stored and delivered.


  • The Advantages of Temporary Structures

    Mention a temporary structure, and the chances are that most people won’t think of it as being as good as a permanent building. But they would be wrong! Temporary buildings hold significant advantages over permanent buildings, and here’s why.


  • QuickSpace Macmillan Coffee Morning

    Sadly I lost my mum to pancreatic cancer in May this year. She battled on longer than we could ever have hoped – more than 18 months from the initial diagnosis –and we were able to nurse her through her last days at home.


  • What’s so Great about Temporary Buildings?

    If you need a large and weather proof structure in a hurry or for a limited period, then a temporary building is the perfect answer. Not only can they be erected within a couple of days, but provide either long or short term affordable solutions for storage, showrooms or even offices. So what’s the difference between one of our temporary structures, and say, a marquee?


  • Choosing the Right Building

    Not all buildings are made equal right? Which is why you don’t often see Georgian manor houses on housing estates or warehouses in leafy streets. So when you’re deciding what type of temporary structure you need, you might be wondering exactly what type. A temporary warehouse is obviously a quite different building type from a fully glazed temporary showroom.


  • Celebrating the Prefab

    On this, the 70th anniversary year of the Second World War, we thought it would be a nice idea to pay tribute to the great British Prefab. Prefabricated temporary houses were erected in their thousands at the end of the war, as a solution to the housing crisis created by all the homes lost in the Blitz.


  • Planning Permission and Temporary Structures

    Planning in the UK is well known for being a long-winded, expensive and often frustrating process. However, although it’s necessary to protect our green and pleasant land from unsightly developments, problems with lack of suitable land for structures or developments are making life problematic for businesses needing extra storage capacity. The logistics industry in particular is suffering, as warehouse rents continue to rise due to a lack of suitable warehousing to meet growing demand.
