The requirement

In early 2020, Montgomery Transport approached temporary building manufacturer and installer Lauralu UK for assistance in getting their new warehouse space at DIRFT, Rugby ready for operation.

Whilst the 5,100m2 premises they had taken on was ideal for their new expanded operations there was a 1,800m2+ gap between the two sets of warehouses and it was important that this space could be fully utilised as a loading area that was protected from the weather.

The solution

Lauralu installed a 30m x 60m canopy that was sandwiched between the existing warehouses to give Montgomery Transport a much needed sheltered loading area. The rear gable end was clad to ensure it didn’t become one large wind tunnel.

Despite lockdown causing delays the structure was erected very speedily over a fortnight, allowing Montgomery Transport to kick off the operations in the new depot seamlessly.

Lauralu UK were the experts we needed for the job. Their efficient service and expert advice enabled this project to happen speedily.
We are so impressed with the quality build and efficient service we received and would absolutely recommend both this type of solution and Lauralu to anyone in a similar boat requiring additional covered space.
