Hayes Garden World's temporary structure

Hayes Garden World, located in Ambleside, is the largest Garden Centre in Cumbria, attracting over a million visitors per year.? In the run up to the festive period, they wanted to transform their furniture section into a Christmas shop.

Worldwide Structures were approached by Hayes Garden World to provide a single storey temporary structure to accommodate some of their garden furniture over the Winter months.? During the development stage, drawings and images were sent through of the proposed structure and project details finalised.

Upon confirmation of the project, the structural components were prepared and delivered to site.? Installation of the building took two days, with minimal disruption to the day-to-day business of the Garden Centre.

A major benefit of using a patented Space Building System temporary structure, is the negation for expensive ground works prior to installation.? Designed and manufactured in Wiltshire, the building is delivered to site in kit form and is built from the ground up, regardless of the terrain.? The only requirements are a small crew and a forklift.

With 100% of the structural elements re-usable, the environmental impact is negligible.

Lighting, heating and internal fit out was carried out by the Garden Centre staff and the temporary furniture showroom was open for business in 4 days.

As a result of re-locating the furniture department into a temporary Structure, Hayes Garden World saw an increase in revenue of 110% from 2016.

Hayes Garden World were so pleased with their decision, they provisionally booked the same structure for 2018.
