Warehouses and Storage Buildings 

Build an affordable warehouse or manufacturing facility with Collinson to permanently control your own storage and handling


Affordable Warehousing And Storage

Today, most 'quick warehousing solutions' are either temporary storage buildings or rented space.

These might seem like a good idea in the short term, but rent can add up over time with no building to show for it. 

On the other hand:

Building your own permanent warehouse will pay off time and time again.

But wait—aren't permanent portal frame warehouses expensive for anything larger than 40 metres? 

Luckily, there is a cost-effective way to build a permanent warehouse:

We're national specialists in the design and build of large and affordable storage and handling buildings. 

Let's take a look:


Cost-Effective In The Short Term

Permanent warehouses don't need to be cost prohibitive.
For warehousing and storage we have two options: steel-framed tensile buildings and steel-framed modular buildings.
As national specialists in tensile construction, our steel-framed tensile structures are ideal (and cost-effective) for commercial and industrial warehousing. Here's why:

Affordable Warehousing

Collinson tensile warehouses and storage buildings:
  • Need less groundworks than conventional portal frame alternatives
  • Use fewer materials
  • Are faster to build and quicker to expand
  • Are mainly prefabricated in a controlled factory environment 
  • Can be clear span and column-free up to 100 metres, maximising available space

Cost-Effective In The Long Term

By material and design, tensile warehouses need only minimal lifecycle maintenance compared with conventional portal warehouses. We select and treat materials for enhanced durability.
By investing in a permanent tensile storage building you'll be protected against rent increases and warehouses shortages.
Plus you'll have a valuable asset to sell on or rent out should your needs ever change.

Fast Construction

With a tensile warehouse your chosen storage solution can be quickly installed.
You'll benefit from a swift and reliable team:
Because they’re experienced, and because we’ve engineered our warehouse construction process to disrupt your site as little as possible.

Weather and Corrosion Resistant

Ideal for storing sensitive materials, our powder-coated steel frameworks can be finished to C5 standard for high corrosion resistance. A second internal tensile skin gives added protection.
Your storage building will be designed to exact site conditions—including wind, snow and ground—and building regulations.
Collinson warehouses are strong and weather-tight. All of our materials are selected for long-lasting durability. 

Energy Efficient Warehouse

We offer a light-coloured roof membrane so your tensile warehousing and storage building will be naturally lit. You'll use significantly less electric light and improve worker health and morale.

As standard, our specialist roof fabric has triple the UV and pollution resistance of other fabrics. It also increases the building's lifespan and thermal insulation, and is available in coloured and blackout (to eliminate UV for sensitive material storage). 



Warehouse Building Design

Because our design team are in-house, and because tensile construction is so versatile, your storage and handling building can be customised throughout:
  • Internal fit-out as required including storage, machinery, handling, packing and manufacturing
  • HVAC and thermal insulation
  • Doors of all types and sizes
  • Bespoke building shapes and profiles
  • Coloured membrane, cladding and logos
