As the government continues to recommend social distancing to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, we look at how businesses and organisations are creating extra space to accommodate returning employees and social events.    

We are still advised to observe social distancing in all aspects of our lives and that poses challenges for businesses as they build up staff numbers as employees return to work.  

This challenge is especially problematic when planning events, conferences or parties where a large number of people are invited to gather in the same space. 

We are seeing a trend towards the use of portable buildings being added to businesses with many being erected and free standing in carparks across the nation.  Where once we used to see marquees, tee pees and portable buildings erected for weddings, parties and festivals, ingenious business owners and managers are using them for everyday activities such as overspill canteens to create additional space at their existing workplace or venue.

And it is not only businesses; many schools and colleges have also commissioned temporary structures to offer more space for use as classrooms, catering areas and staff rooms.

We know of one Midlands football club that has erected a marquee in their car park to house their physiotherapists and give them more spacious areas to treat their players.  

Keeping occupants comfortable

To work effectively as an extension of current building space and allow employees to social distance, temporary buildings like marquees need to be warmed up to a comfortable working temperature.  Unlike traditional buildings, they lack insulation and heating needs careful planning by an experienced team. Cutting corners on this will leave your employees cold and uncomfortable and the space unusable.

Since the building is temporary, so it follows that heating hire makes the most financial sense.  Renting heaters offers complete flexibility since the hire period can be long or short term, to suit the clients’ specific requirements.
