Case Study - Christmas storage tent

When; Installation December 2012 , still in situ

The client required a temporary structure to provide additional warehouse space to service their parcel traffic in the run up to and over the Christmas period.

The brief;

The client wished to utilise an area adjacent to their main parcels shed. Servicing Heathrow, the operation is time critical meeting inbound / outbound aircraft with guaranteed deliveries. However, certain shipments can be `parked’ pending processing and/or movement, so freeing up congestion within the warehouse was their chief goal. By providing a weather proof environment, palletised storage could be marshalled out of the way, pending the next stage in the supply chain. We were asked to provide a suitable structure high enough to allow Fork lift truck operation.

The approach

  • After reviewing the proposed area, we agreed with the client to utilise a 5m clearspan structure on 4m legs.
  • Generally this structure would be bolted down to the concrete apron surrounding the shed, but CAT scanning the area, prior to installing the marquee, identified underground utilities. The solution was to water weight some of the legs to avoid damage to unknown cabling.
  • Suitable low bay sodium lighting was installed, linked to the clients supply to provide long life illumination to the marquee as it is a 24/7 operation.

The outcome

The client became so reliant on the extra warehouse space that the marquee is still in position today. In addition the flexible space we provided has been replicated with 2 further structures adjacent to other warehousing. We are now in discussion regarding their `off hire’.
