Store Your Heavy Machinery Or Large Equipment In One Of Our Temporary Storage Structures
Temporary Buildings Make Excellent Garages Or Workshops For Large Equipment & Heavy Machinery
When most people think of mechanics, they picture them working in traditional garages on small cars or pickup trucks. While many mechanics work on standard vehicles, there are also mechanics that specialize in other types of vehicles including farm equipment, high-capacity vehicles, locomotives, and airplanes. Working on vehicles like these requires a lot more space than working on a typical car. Most pieces of heavy equipment are far too big to fit inside of a standard garage. Working on trains is particularly challenging since the workshop needs to have tracks so that the train can get inside.
The cost of building such a large garage or workshop is quite prohibitive especially when you take into account the amount of labor involved in the construction process and the special accommodations that need to be made for the equipment. There also needs to be enough room for vehicles to be stored while they are waiting for parts to arrive. Being able to move these vehicles out of the way is essential otherwise, the mechanics won’t be able to start on any other projects until the parts have been received. These buildings require large doors so that equipment can easily be moved inside. They may also have special requirements involving partitions, hoists, or lifts, which can add to the overall construction cost.
One of the best ways to avoid large construction expenses is by opting for a temporary building rather than a permanent structure. There are also buildings available that have walls made out of a combination of brick and sheet metal that is cheaper, faster, and easier to build than traditional buildings. Temporary buildings can accommodate extremely large vehicles since their walls can measure as high as 7 meters. They can also span distances as wide as 30 meters, leaving plenty of room in the building for work to take place. If additional room is required, extra temporary structures can quickly be erected, providing areas for storage, administrative work, or overflow projects.
Granted, there are still certain tasks that can’t be avoided, even with the use of temporary buildings. For instance, the workshop still may need to have inspection pits or anchors installed to deal with large pieces of equipment. These types of features can be used in conjunction with temporary buildings, helping to keep costs down while at the same time speeding up the overall construction time. Using multiple buildings also allows the project to get underway even if work is still being done on one of the buildings.
Today’s temporary structures can be accessed in a couple of different ways. The first option is to use sliding doors that are manually operated. The other option is to use large roller shutters that are controlled electronically. Smaller doors can also be installed to allow people to easily access the space. Depending on how the workshop is set up, doors can be installed at both ends of the building, allowing vehicles to drive all the way through. This type of setup also improves ventilation in the building. Additional features like lighting, gutters, and roofing that is designed to resist condensation can help create the ideal workspace.
For mechanics who deal with heavy-duty equipment, temporary buildings are an excellent option. They are less expensive and easier to set up than traditional garages or workshops.
