One of the unique features of the construction and mining industries is frequent mobility. Construction and mining activities are not just carried out behind a work desk in an office, they also require working in the field. The engineers have to visit the construction site to carry out what has been planned and designed in the office. This will require the movement of a number of things into and out of the construction site, including the workforce to carry out the construction, the machinery that will be used to make the work easier and faster, equipment and other materials which will be needed for the actual work. These machines and materials will have to be kept somewhere during the construction period in order to save on costs and prevent wastage and this is where the need for a warehouse comes in. Construction and mining companies find contracted work at different geographical locations, this translates to frequent movement. Construction engineers and miners tend to spend more work time on sites than in offices. This is why you’ll always notice a cheap-looking housing structure on any construction or mining site.
Also, in the manufacturing and production industry, times might arise when there will be the need to increase production capacity. This time might come at a period when there is a lack of funds. But whether or not such need arises, the best option is through the construction of a temporary warehouse which can be expanded or reduced whenever it is necessary to do so.
Temporary warehouses are also used in other fields like the military, but they are used more in the construction, mining and manufacturing industries than in any other sector.

Temporary warehouses offer a lot of benefits to the construction, mining, and manufacturing industries. Some of these advantages are outlined below.
Temporary warehouses go a long way in helping construction and mining companies save on the costs which would have been incurred from transportation, fuelling, accommodation etc. Imaging having to transport equipment every day through a commercial transport service or providing rented apartments for all staff. The amount of money which would have been spent in doing all these would most likely outweigh the amount budgeted for the actual construction process. Also, rather than renting or purchasing an offsite building to make up for the extra space needed to carry out additional manufacturing works, a temporary warehouse which can be expanded when needed could be used. Another plus is that temporary warehouses may not require a foundation for them to be erected and when they do, they are usually cheap and may require little or no excavation.
It takes very little time to set up a temporary warehouse. A temporary warehouse can be erected in less than 24 hours depending on the type of structure, size, materials used, specifications and regulations to be adhered to as laid out by the profession's governing and regulatory bodies. This will make work start quickly, allowing things to go as planned and aims achieved within the planned timeframe.
3.Creates more space
This is one of the reasons temporary warehousing solutions are preferred to the permanent ones. Its flexibility allows you to expand its capacity. This is possible because most temporary warehouses are constructed without support posts thereby allowing for maximum utilisation of available space for storage, office work and also facilitating ease of movement. There will also be ample opportunities for proper and orderly arrangement of equipment, setting up of a workspace to one’s satisfaction, and easy access to materials, machinery, and equipment.
Temporary warehouses are very easy to assemble, disassemble and reassemble with a very reasonable efficiency in relation to cost and time. Also, most of its parts are lightweight and are therefore easily transported from one place to another.
Although classified as temporary structures, many of the components used in constructing a temporary warehouse can last as long as 50 years.
In general, temporary warehouses, by reducing cost and producing many other benefits, help the management make use of its resources for more productive purposes thereby improving work capacity and making timely completion of work possible.
