Temporary storage building for automotive research centre

Thatcham Research Centre is the research facility for the UK motor insurance and a world renowned automotive research and training centre. Thatcham is a not-for-profit organisation whose research and data helps reduce motor insurance claims and influences the design, safety and security of new vehicles.

Why a temorary storage building was needed

Given the sensitive nature of Thatcham’s work, the vehicles that had been crash tested for insurance analyses needed to be stored undercover in a dry, secure and concealed area.

Temporary storage building solution

The company had contacted Aganto previously for general information and realised that the Aganto temporary storage buildings would be the quick, flexible and cost-effective solution they needed. Being literally down the road from Aganto, the project got under way in no time and after a thorough site visit and survey, a 200 m sq insulated temporary storage building was agreed upon and installed on the site.

The building had 2 roller shutter doors providing fast, easy access for the vehicles and a 5m eave height. Thatcham opted to hire the building on a 24 month contract with the option to extend depending on their circumstances at the end of the period.

The benefit of the temporary storage building

“We contacted a few other temporary building companies for comparative quotes, but found their responses to be just nameless, faceless sales pitches. Aganto however had the personal and professional approach we always look for in a supplier and the fact they were local was an added bonus."

“The whole process from initial enquiry through to installation was seamless and we are very happy with the end result. The storage building provides ideal protection for the damaged vehicles ensuring they are safe and secure whilst on site and we have the flexibility of returning the building after 2 years or keeping it for longer depending on our needs at the time."
