Temporary warehouses solves Felixstowe space shortage

[ March 27, 2015   //   ]

Felixstowe has turned to temporary building experts Spaciotempo to cope with a space shortage brought on by new Brussels food safety regulations. The 25m x 25m, 5m high building, is helping the port cope with demand following the introduction of a new food safety. It will remain on site until work to create a permanent facility is completed in July.

The structure has uPVC cavity walls, a double-skinned thermo-insulated roof and roller-shutter doors. It is acting as a holding area which is connected to the main warehouse by a weatherproof link.

Spaciotempo has also provided five weather-protected, retractable tunnels to protect devanned goods being moved to the building.

Scott Jameson, managing director, said: “We were asked to provide a specific type of temporary building for the Port of Felixstowe, so we came up with a detailed, bespoke solution that’s ideal for their needs.

“It’s an aluminium structure that didn’t require groundworks, so we were able to install both the main building and the tunnels that lead into it very quickly.”
