A Cost/Benefits Analysis of Temporary Vs Permanent Buildings
The reason that commercial organisations often favour portable buildings in Leicester and other cities across the UK, when expanding their business operations, is because they are far cheaper than permanent constructions. However, cost is not the only factor to have in mind; you should also consider the following points:
1. Portability – A portable building obviously scores well in this area, being both less expensive than a permanent structure and infinitely more mobile. With our relocation service, you can use your mobile units in any area of the country that you wish and move them around as many times as necessary.
2. Durability – A permanent building, assuming it is constructed to a reasonable standard, should easily outlast a temporary structure but whether this factor is important enough to your organisation to merit the extra expense depends on how long you need the extra workspace for.
3. Appreciation – A portable module is highly unlikely to appreciate over time whereas a permanent building almost certainly will. The trouble with basing a decision on this factor alone is that you never know how long it will take for a permanent structure to appreciate by a significant sum and it could even depreciate in the short term.
4. Reusability – Once you have had the interior of a permanent building designed and fitted, it is certainly possible to change it but usually only at considerable expense. On the other hand, the interiors of mobile workspaces are altered all the time; at the Portable Building Shop, we even have a special team dedicated to this task full-time. Should you wish to use a portable unit for a new purpose or simply to redecorate, you can do so far more cheaply than would normally be possible with a permanent structure.
The Environmental Argument for Portable Buildings in Leicester
If you choose to accommodate extra staff or provisions in one of our purpose-built temporary modules rather than having a new warehouse or suite of offices built on the land that your company currently occupies, you will almost certainly be reducing the carbon footprint for which your company is responsible, this year and for many years to come.
