Flexible storage for changing demands
Customers are increasingly shunning the high-street to make all their purchases online and the promise of same or next-day delivery is putting pressure on warehouses. Optimum use of space is essential for any ecommerce business and whether you are having to increase the amount of stock stored or cope with a busier flow of goods in and out, the chances are you are rapidly out-growing your existing premises.
Rather than consider a conventional building project, which requires a lot of time and money, as well as a cumbersome planning process, it could be worth considering a high-quality yet flexible, short-term warehousing solution as part of a long-term growth plan.

Quick to Build but Built to Last
With over 30 years’ experience, we are leaders in the field of quick-build, temporary warehousing – a cost-effective way for businesses to buy some breathing space and cope with rapid growth or to keep a business operating while new solutions are applied to existing warehouses. It doesn’t have to be temporary either, in fact, this often turns into a permanent arrangement as our warehouses are designed and built to last.
Structures can be deployed quickly. Canopies can typically be designed, installed, fully functional and operational within 8 weeks of ordering. Once delivered, a small or medium-sized canopy can be erected on an existing concrete base in a matter of days.
Manufactured off-site to avoid any disruption to your daily operations, these high-performance warehouse solutions can be fully bespoke, designed to integrate with existing systems and they can be modular to enable an expansion or reduction in size at any time if your business needs change. They are also lightweight and easy to remove or relocate to new premises.
This does not mean that they are weak! Our structures are built using strong, corrosion-free, galvanised steel frames that are engineered to last and covered with a heavy-duty, flame retardant PVC-coated polyester fabric, which offers complete protection from arduous marine conditions as well as heavy wind and snow loadings. A 10-year guarantee comes as standard, although many are still going strong after 20.
Over 15 years ago, we had two canopies installed on our site by CopriSystems. The longevity and hardwearing design of these structures made them the obvious choice for us. We were in need of a new canopy as we restructured our warehouse, creating a new goods in/out section. The new warehouse canopy was installed quickly by the friendly, installation team with little to no disruption to our operations. The team were back a week later to double-check the installation and to see that we were happy with it. It gives great protection from the elements and is a useful addition to our warehouse.”
UKWA membership gives us access to support from Britain’s leading trade organisation for the logistics sector, ensuring that we continue to operate safely, ethically and maintain high standards of operation.
Alcumus Safe Contractors accreditation has checked that we meet the necessary requirements around health and safety, equal opportunities, diversity and environmental management practices.
Our buildings are available to purchase outright or hire. You can also choose to hire a building for a period then purchase at a later date. These flexible finance options help ensure your plans can be realised within your budget and can also be funded from future revenue.
