Spaciotempo is helping Haskins to grow thanks to the installation of a temporary store.

Haskins at Snowhill chose Spaciotempo to provide the retail environment for its customers. This is while work to create a new permanent facility is underway.

The 1,575sqm structure has proved popular since customers entered on March 2.

Store Manager Dave Lilley said the reaction of customers and employees is positive.

He added: “We all love the building. The quality of the finish is so good that a lot of people have asked if it is the new permanent garden centre!

“Spaciotempo’s product exceeded our expectations while remaining good priced. Particularly given the high spec that we opted for.

“We’re impressed with the whole team who were professional from start right through to the end.”

The retail space comprises a trio of gutter-linked units with everything visitors expect to see.

The facility also has a 180-seat café.

The plant area is in a further two units, measuring 15m x 30m. Perforated walls and a special designed roof allow more air and light into the section.

There are three single doors, eight double glazed windows and lighting.
The building will stay in place for a year while a new store is constructed on the same site.

Dean Ridley, Operations Manager at Haskins, added: “The temporary store is the perfect solution for us. We’re impressed with it.

“We did a lot of homework on various suppliers before we decided to work with Spaciotempo. It was vital that the building was right.

“Our dedication definitely paid off as the building is brilliant. It’s spacious, well-insulated and has all the features we need, including a café area.”
