Travis Perkins has been established for over 200 years and is one of the largest suppliers to the UK's building industry with over 600 branches.
Prefabricated building for use as a trading warehouse
The company has worked with Aganto since 2008 and now has over 10 Aganto prefabricated buildings installed in various sites throughout the UK. Historically Travis Perkins has used Aganto buildings for storage, as newly acquired branch sites have always had trading units already in situ. When Travis Perkins purchased a brand new site in Fakenham, however, they needed to build a trading unit from scratch.
Insulated prefab buildings
Previous analysis by Travis Perkins showed that using Aganto prefabricated buildings for warehousing, instead of traditional buildings, not only created major cost savings but had absolutely no negative bearing on the company's volume of sales. This combined with the established and successful relationship that already existed made them confident in choosing Aganto for the Fakenham project. Aganto provided an insulated building 15m wide by 45m long with a height of 5m and in the company's corporate colours. Standard and emergency lighting, guttering, electric roller shutters doors and pedestrian doors were also included.
The company's strategy to use Aganto prefab buildings instead of traditional buildings on their sites has created significant commercial gain
“We know that an Aganto building gives us the same result as a permanent building at a fraction of the cost and time, keeping our investment low and return high. The building at Fakenham is the first of its kind for our company, but we are confident it will provide a fast and healthy return with future new sites being developed in the same way."
